[Leaves appropriate times for squeals of delight]
And, we’re back.
Dollhouse mastermind Joss Whedon confirmed that he is working on a way to bring the Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles star over to his alternate universe now that her series has been cancelled. As he told Michael Ausiello of EW.com:
If anybody thinks [bringing Summer onto Dollhouse] hasn’t occurred to me already then they have not met me. I mentioned it to her before [SCC] was canceled. I was like, “You know, we should get you in the house.” But first we have to come up with something that works.
Oh God, the awesome. Summer managed to bring unexpected soul to her tin woman in T:SCC. And her ass-kicking skills were, of course, epic. Combine that with Eliza and you have a kick-ass hotties smorgasbord.
Heck, even Fox likes them together. They paired Summer and Eliza in a Grindhouse-inspired promo for their back-to-back Friday shows at the beginning of the season.
Though, before you start thinking of her cool new active name (Bravo? Foxtrot? Not Uniform.), Joss is apparently adamant that Summer not play a doll. Even though she has made a career of playing the strong but silent type on Firefly and T:SCC, Joss said he has something different in mind for Summer.
Summer would be perfect to play an active, but she’s done that [type of role] a lot. I’d rather see her play someone who talks too much. The most fun I have is when I get somebody who’s good and comfortable at doing something, and then I make them do something else. Summer said to me, “I would like to play a normal girl before I die of extreme old age.”
So, what kind of role could she play instead? The brief glimpse of the ballerina in Summer was beautiful to see on T:SCC. Or perhaps she could play another FBI agent now that Agent Ballard has been recruited.
Something, anything — make this happen, Joss. Make this happen to console us at the loss of T:SCC. Make this happen to help ease the pain of a Whedon-less Buffy movie. Make this happen because, great googley moogley, those two look good together.
What do you think, Whedonversers? A match made in sci-fi heaven, no? I say too much of a good thing is never enough.
