Look what I just found! Here’s a link to the official site for Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. What, you might ask, is that? Well, I’m not exactly positive. I know this much, Joss Whedon and his brothers, Jed and Zack are involved, as is Nathan Fillion (Mal Reynolds on Firefly, and Caleb on Buffy), Neil Patrick Harris and Felicia Day (Vi on Buffy). All three actors and the writers are participating in a panel at Comic-Con in San Diego.
Apparently, it was during the WGA strike when Joss wrote this three-part musical Internet series. Each ep is going to be about 10 minutes long. “It’s the story of a low-rent super-villain, the hero who keeps beating him up, and the cute girl from the laundromat he’s too shy to talk to,” says Whedon. “Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog will star Neil Patrick Harris as Dr. Horrible, Nathan Fillion as Captain Hammer, Felicia Day as Penny and a cast of dozens.”
No word yet on exactly when it will be up at the site, but from what I’ve read, it could be any day, so stay tuned. But my question is why didn’t I hear about this sooner? Obviously, I’m slipping.
BUFFY: It’s all right
If some things come out wrong
We’ll sing a happy song
And you can sing along.
