I told you I was into superheroes. Well, supervillians , too. I am a little slow to the party , but not too late. Joss Wedon, creator of Buffy, Angel, and Firefly, has found something new to do. Presenting Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog. Looks like he was bored during the writer’s strike, ( well there is a bit more to it than that), and wrote something that will be seen first on the Internet. The first Act went up today at midnight eastern.
Here’s a little more about it :
Coming soon to a computer near you… 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. Featuring Neil Patrick Harris as Dr. Horrible, Nathan Fillion as Captain Hammer, Felicia Day as Penny and a cast of dozens. Written by Joss Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen, Jed Whedon, and Zack Whedon. Directed by Joss Whedon. Produced by David Burns, Michael Boretz, and Joss Whedon. Music by Joss Whedon and Jed Whedon. Lyrics by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon, and Maurissa Tancharoen. Score and Orchestration by Jed Whedon.
Just in case you were wondering,Yes , Nathan Fillion can sing.
First act , less than 15 minutes long. Quite clever and good for a laugh.
