Dollhouse Casting Stuff
Hey, so more casting information has been reported about Joss Whedon's new show, "Dollhouse," including the fact that Amy Acker will join the cast.
On a critical note, coffeeandink has some interesting thoughts about race in her post here, and links to a discussion going on in the community DeadBroWalking.
The most powerful character in the show, at least insofar as we can tell from the character descriptions, is a white woman, as is the lead; most of the men (1 of the white men, both of the men of color) are in positions of ambiguous power; all the women of color are dolls, i.e., initially at least powerless.
I agree that the premise of the show could be problematic, but with these actors (Tahmoh Penikett, Elisha Dushku, Amy Acker, etc.) and the fact that it's Joss Whedon, there's no way in hell that I won't be watching every episode.2:04 PM
