Another weekend, so it must be scan day. ;) I actually have a small pile of magazines to scan still, so enjoy this treat for the unforeseeable future!
Today, I scanned a small interview with Amy in the October/November 2006 issue of Buffy magazine as well as the report on Starfury’s last ever Angel convention, titled ‘Not Fade Away’ — view MQ screencaptures from the event in the gallery — links and previews are below, enjoy! :)
– Scans From 2006 > Buffy Magazine (US) – October/November
Richard Lalonde posted on his Twitter that he got the chance to speak to Drew Goddard & Joss Whedon at the Cabin in the Woods wrap party on May 24 — hopefully this means official confirmation over Amy’s possible role will be released soon! I’m also looking forward to the promotion starting up. :)
Cider & gossi at Whedonesque have posted comments regarding Amy’s possible involvement in Cabin in the Woods and her cancelled appearance at Starfury’s T1 convention back in April. The extracts are posted below — I, for one, hope this is true as it would be lovely to see Amy on the big screen again; her last appearance was in Catch Me If You Can. ;)
Curious! I wonder if this is true? Hope so. The character is called Wendy Lin and is a “nervous woman in a lab coat”. -gossi
Amy Acker was due to attend the Starfury T1 convention last month but had to cancel due to being cast in a film. She sent a message to the organiser in which she said, that she couldn’t say what film it was but that people would be ‘excited’ about it.
Unfortunately the message has been taken down now so I can’t quote it exactly, but I did wonder at the time if it could be Cabin. -Cider
At last! The first season of Dollhouse is now available for pre-order from Amazon.co.uk on region 2 — I’ve pre-ordered my copy!
Unfortunately, the release date isn’t until September 14, 2009 (and has already been put back once, according to Amazon’s email about the dispatch date) but it is available to buy at £17.98 — DVD extras should be the same, if not similar, to the region 1 release. :)
Pilot Inspektor at Televisionary has posted an advance review of the Happy Town pilot; an extract featuring Amy is posted below — I’m hoping the show will feature more of Amy in future episodes.
The effect is to create the feeling of community that such a small town would have but it means that several characters are given short shrift. Amy Acker in particular seems to have precious little to do and it’s a shame to see her squander her considerable ability playing a one-dimensional bread factory tour guide and wife and mother here. (A single brief look between her and Dean Winters’ character is the sole storyline her character warrants here.)
Another project to look forward to?
IMDB has Amy listed as a rumoured cast member, playing the part of Lin. As you may know, this is the Drew Goddard/Joss Whedon horror film and already stars Fran Kranz who plays Topher in Dollhouse.
It’s an interesting rumour but only time will tell if it’s true or not!
Another titbit regarding Amy’s role on Dollhouse, this time from Joss Whedon. :) An extract is posted below. It’s looking slightly more hopeful but still keep your fingers crossed!
Question: Since Amy Acker’s show Happy Town has been picked up, what does that mean for Dr. Saunders on Dollhouse? Is she headed for the attic? –Mike W.
Ausiello: Not if puppetmaster Joss Whedon has anything to say about it. He tells me he’ll be “sending [Happy producers] chocolate and flowers,” he laughs. “We’re desperate to have her.” As such, he is disinclined to put another doctor in the d’house. Only if “we find out that we’re not going to use her for the bulk of the season” would he do that, he says. “[But] everyone is not going to be in every episode, so it’s perfectly possible that there will just be stories that don’t involve Dr. Saunders.”
