Amy Acker is the Doctor in the Dollhouse!
This is awesome news!
Angel alumni Amy Acker (say that fast 5 time in a row!) is setting up residency in Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse as Dr. Claire Saunders. Dr. Saunders is described as “The dolls doctor with an an acid wit” (usually aimed at the Dolls programming genius/computer geek, Topher.)
Amy proved her acting range in Angel with the incredible switch from the shy and geeky Fred to the awesomely powerful demon Illyria. Should be a great addition to the rest of the cast. There’s still a few spaces in the Dollhouse left. We’ll let you know as soon as we find out whos filling them!
UPDATE: Harry Lennix has also joined the cast as Boyd Langton the gruff, fatherly, ex-cop bodyguard of the dolls. Miracle Laurie also joins the Dollhouse playing November. Another doll, described as “a comforting, radiant presence, who tends to get fewer of the criminal gigs and more of the personal ones.”
