With the series finale of Dollhouse just a few days away, fans of the Whedon named Joss might be wondering what the geek auteur might be up to next. With rumors of a show on FX, Dr. Horrible 2 and aspirations of directing Glee making the rounds, Joss takes some time to tell everyone what’s on his plate this year.
On the sequel to Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog,
(Jokingly) “Sadly, my collaborators don’t have more time on their hands. They all have other jobs, which I think is both rude and disgusting.”
“We very much want to do it. We meet, we hammer out stuff, we have songs, we have ideas, we’re really working it, but it’s a slow-moving train. We’re very passionate about it, and Neil’s been great. He’s always checking in before he takes a gig.”
On directing an episode of Glee this March
“That’s something that’s trying to be worked out, but I haven’t heard whether or not that’s going to take place. I hope so, that’d be great, [but] I don’t know anything about it. I’m just a director on hire for that. I’m a huge fan, [so] I’m going to show up and hopefully put the cameras somewhere useful.”
“I’m going to try to not stalk anyone. That’s going to be my big ambition. I practiced on Jamie Bamber, and I didn’t stalk him for eight days on that episode of Dollhouse. I think I can rock it. I think I’ll be OK.”
On what we can expect from him next,
“I do hope to create something in this calendar year, as well as do jobs for other people, but I haven’t investigated anything besides Glee. That’ll actually take a chunk of time. It means a lot to me—I really want to get it right. So that’ll eat up the better part of a month, intellectually, so I’m holding out for a Joss Whedon joint.”
As a huge fan of Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, I can’t wait to see what they cook up for the next installment. While I’d love to see a sequel right away, I’m happy to wait so that they have to get everything right.
That being said, I have no idea what’s going on with this Glee thing. I know Joss is a huge fan of that show and I’m sure he’ll do a great job directing one of the episodes, but I just haven’t been able to get into it. I just don’t get it.
I love musicals. If you don’t believe me, I’ll let you peek at my MP3 player and then you can see just how unmanly I am. Still, I don’t like Glee. I tried watching it. I tried many times, but the only thing I get out of it is a bunch of kids singing songs that I’d rather heard be sung by the original artists rather than a hokey school choir… but maybe it’s just me.
Or maybe it’s not just me. I’ll leave it up to you to either agree with me or put me in my place. What do you think of Joss’ aspirations for the year? Looking forward to Doctor Horrible 2? Is Glee your cup of tea? What should Joss do next?
