Terminator breaks into Dollhouse?

‘’Terminator : The Sarah Connor Chronicles’’ may be gone (if unfairly so; the show’s better than ‘’Terminator Salvation’’ for Christ’s sake!) but it’s not all bad news for star Summer Glau.

The former small-screen cyborg has – not surprisingly – been asked to star on her old pal (he directed her in the TV series “Firefly” and it’s terrific spin-off film “Serenity”) Joss Whedon’s series “Dollhouse”.

“If anybody thinks [bringing Summer onto Dollhouse] hasn’t occurred to me already then they have not met me,” Whedon tells Michael Ausiello. “I mentioned it to her before [SCC] was canceled. I was like, ‘You know, we should get you in the ‘house.’ But first we have to come up with something that works.” And casting her as a doll would not work, insists Whedon. “Summer would be perfect to play an active, but she’s done that [type of role] a lot,” he says.

“I’d rather see her play someone who talks too much. The most fun I have is when I get somebody who’s good and comfortable at doing something, and then I make them do something else. Summer
said to me, ‘I would like to play a normal girl before I die of extreme old age.'”

Whedon and Glau are also said to be developing a ballet film (she’s a former dancer) together.
