Summer Glau, Alexis Denisof Visit the ‘Dollhouse’

dollhousealums (5)And the Dollhouse Whedonverse Reunion Train keeps rolling on.

In “The Public Eye,” airing Oct. 30, Firefly‘s Summer Glau joins the cast in a recurring role as Bennett, a programmer at the D.C. Dollhouse who shares a past with Echo. Basically, she’s the Washington equivalent of Topher, but with more girly bits.

The episode also features the return of Alexis Denisof (Buffy, Angel) as Senator Perrin.

Unfortunately, one Whedonverse regular will be MIA for most of the season. Amy Acker, who plays Dr. Claire Saunders/Whiskey, will only be in three episodes this season due to her commitment to the ABC midseason show Happy Town. Whedon promises that the episodes will be memorable. Thinking back on Dr. Saunders’ charged scenes with Topher in the season premiere, he wasn’t lying. Hopefully, Acker’s two other appearances will be fit into Dollhouse‘s current thirteen episode order because it looks like that’s all we’ll be getting based on the disappointing ratings. In fact, I’m surprised Fox even said they would air all thirteen episodes.

The more Whedonverse alums that come onto the show, the more I start to think that Whedon has realized the show is doomed and is using it as a way to hang out with his friends. It’s like the Dollhouse Goodbye Tour featuring all your favorite actors from past Whedon shows, who’ve jumped on the bus for one last TV reunion performance.
