Six Degrees of Joss Whedon

July 26, 2008 11:05 PM

Is Comic-Con really just a gathering place for actors from long-gone Joss Whedon shows?

So far, the Daily Blink has seen “Firefly's” Jewel Staite (“Stargate: Atlantis"), Adam Baldwin (“Chuck”), Summer Glau (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”), “Buffy's” Seth Green (“Family Guy,” “Robot Chicken”), Eliza Dushku (“Dollhouse”), Julie Benz (“Dexter) and “Angel's” David Boreanaz (“Bones”).

Then there's the Joss Whedon/“Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog” panel, which included Nathan Fillion (“Firefly”), Felicia Day (“Buffy”) and new-to-the-Joss-club Neil Patrick Harris, who came with freeze ray in tow.

With two Whedon alums, Doogie Howser, who Fillion said kind of invented the blog, Simon “Moist” Helberg and Whedon's co-writers/family members Zack Whedon, Jed Whedon and Jed's fiance Maurissa Tancharoen on board, the panel was more of a fun lovefest than anything else.

The brothers Whedon did reveal that there will be another part to the Web musical.

The soundtrack for the project will be available for download within a couple of weeks, to be followed by a DVD release shortly thereafter. In addition to the previously announced musical commentary “Commentary!,” the DVD release will feature the 10 best fan-submitted video entries for the Evil League of Evil.

Good luck to all those who aspire to follow in Bad Horse's hoofs.
