Flint Ironstag: Ivandrago: Didn't we learn our lesson that Eliza Dushku sucks? She's nice to look at it, but she's a terrible actress. All Dollhouse did was expose her limited range.

I personally think she's a good actor but she's one of those actors that you only ever see 'them'. Like Sean Connery or Sam Jackson. No matter whether they are playing a Russian sub captain or an Egyptian immortal you just think "That's Sean Connery".
Enver Gjokaj knocked it out of the park with his acting as different characters, but how much of that was helped by none of us having seen him before? To us he was a blank slate and we could accept him playing anyone. With Dushku we knew her and so no matter what role she was playing we just saw "Eliza Dushku"

/Yes, I know she won't sleep with me.
//I've met her, and she didn't sleep with me then either.


I hadn't seen Miracle Laurie in anything before Dollhouse, but I wouldn't mind blanking her slate, if you know what I mean.

Crudbucket: The cast of How I Met Your Mother is only under contract for one more season, and although CBS is interested in renewing them it seems as if everyone else is eager to move on to new projects. They very well could get Cobie Smulders to helm this new show.


She did well enough in film (especially the opening scenes) to earn a place on the show. Season One features one cast member who is designed to be killed off during the season finale. She could sign on at the start of Season Two and stay for the rest of the series' run.

Joss is known for strong leading ladies.

Cobie Smulders is one strong leading lady, or at least i think she has the potential to be.

Make her and Coulson the main characters with the ocassional cameo from big stars and this could go somewhere. It's been a while since he's had a TV show, he's got a bunch more connections and contacts, and he's got way more resources this time. All he really needs to do is navigate the CBS red tape around HIMYM and this could be real.

It has potential. Until we really learn more that's all i'm holding my hopes to.

Maybe you're right. Maybe she worked as Faith because I hadn't seen her before and kick-ass chick can be hard to pull off but she did. I just found that in Dollhouse her face wasn't expressive enough and as long as she was being asked to be kick-ass she was fine. It could have also been the material which I didn't think was very good and therefore she wasn't given much to work with. I'm blanking on an actress that could have made Dollhouse work. Dushku or no, I'm still watching. That's not even a question.


Amy Acker could have made that work, check out some of her work on Angel when she is switching between Fred and Illyria. With just expressions on her face, tone of voice, and body language she is very convincing as two different people.

Agree. She nailed that. Word is that the next season would have seen a lot more switching between the two as Fred's personality resurfaced.

When even Fox admit they made a mistake cancelling the show you know they made a huge mistake....

After Firefly was cancelled I think Joss felt guilty and so gave Fillion the gig on Buffy and Adam and Gina a gig on Angel as consolation.

For everyone who claims that Samuel L. Jackson won't be a part of this, how do you know?

He does commercials for Apple and he's hosted the Espys - THE ESPYS!

I'm not saying he'll be in every episode but I'm sure that SLJ would show up for an episode or two during Sweeps just to pop the numbers.

It's possible, but don't forget Apple could have paid him millions of dollars to do a single commercial, more than the entire budget for a whole episode of a TV show.

The suggestion of Chloe Moretz as SG is solid as well.

But really we need Coulson to make this show work. Either have him be a LMD or reveal the one who died was an LMD.

Off screen death, i know how Joss likes to play camera tricks with us to make us think something bad happened. Fury could have told the Avengers that he died to inspire them in their time of need. Dead or not - it worked.

Until we see our hero's mourning the loss of a great agent at their grave, he could still be kicking. He's a tough bastard - a devoted one.

Then you get the Smallville effect. You are constantly constrained by having to make everything fit into the future they already know. Can't kill so and so, can't do this, can't do that...

Few things:

Coulson's death was forced by Marvel. Joss said he tried to get out of it because he was getting a reputation. So Marvel obviously already had a plan for him (Vision?) I would actually hate the idea of the guy getting killed being a LMD.

IF they plan out the seasons before hand, they could easily get RDJ, SLJ or any others to green-screen, voice overs (for phone calls) and such for a day to sprinkle through the season. I would hope that cut footage from the movies would be fair game. That would depend on the contracts.

Someone mentioned the idea of making this a like a police procedural. I think that could work. Or team based espionage like MI or Alias.

If this was a prequel showing the construction of the LMDs, that would be cool as well.

and:
delathi

I'm ok with this...

Eliza Dushku : The top billed star that Whedon likes to kill off in the first episode
Adam Baldwin : Kickass S.H.I.E.L.D. agent
Felicia Day : Kooky lab girl / Q
Summer Glau : One time guest star
Amy Acker : Maria Hill's (played by Cobie Smulders) love interest and Hydra double agent

No Hasslehoff

I'm very ok with this

Why does ABC always preface shows with "ABC's so-and-so"? It's never just "Nashville", it's "ABC'S NAshville". I know it's branding but it's annoying.

The SHIELD show would be fun just to do one-shots with different heroes. Like one week, SHIELD is dealing with a deposition via Jennifer Walters. The next week, Namor, played by this guy:
