Friend (and neighbor) Tim Leong interviews Joss Whedon for Complex Magazine this week.
In the lengthy interviews, Leong talks to Whedon about his Astonishing X-Men artist John Cassaday’s turn behind the Director’s Chair this season on Joss’s show, Dollhouse. The multi-platform writer also shares ideas on Buffy Season 9, his movie Cabin in the Woods and well, his dancing.
Whedon said about his X-Men artist Cassaday that he’s going, well, f–k up so much.
Cassaday, I know he can tell a story, I know him as a person, his sensibility, the way he is with other people and I just feel that this step is logical for him, it’s something he’s been pursuing for a while. We’re now in position to take this risk, because we have so many good people he knows he’s in a comfort zone. He’s got Soloman watching set, none of us are directing around the time that he is so that we could be there for his prep. And that’s just very exciting for me because he has a visual sense that goes beyond most of the people that I work with. The only problem we have is he wants to storyboard his episode, and I’m like, “You do know that it’s a script that will be late, right?”
