Faith plus wall

Meanwhile, in a much happier place....

....they've cast Joss's new show Dollhouse.

"Dollhouse" revolves around a group of young men and women who are imprinted with different personalities for different assignments. They have no memories of their previous lives, until Echo (Eliza Dushku) begins to try to find out who she was.

Tammoh Penikett will play Paul Smith, an FBI field agent obsessed with the urban myth of Dollhouse and a twisted romantic foil for Echo. No idea what this means for his role as Helo in BSG.

Fran Kranz will play Topher Brink, a twentysomething genius programr responsible for imprinting the dolls.

Dichen Lachman will play Sierra, a doll like Echo and her friend, who has every personality in the world but her own.

Enver Gjokaj will play Victor, also a doll and a friend of Echo's, who is childlike when he's inactive, and everything from Errol Flynn to young DeNiro when he's active.

Seven episode pick-up before the writer's strike, so fingers crossed, eh?
