Eliza Dushku talks Dollhouse. She tells Cinema Blend about training for the show and the likelihood of a date for the premiere.

Ta Simon- good to have some confirmation that 'Dollhouse' is still in the works- especially after the spate of canceled contracts lately.
*Crosses fingers, toes and other extremities that it's not jinxed now*

I love that Eliza's 'in training' to get ready for a role that will likely not shoot for at least another 6 months.
It actually makes me feel guilty about my own lame excuses for skipping the gym over the last few weeks!
So looking forward to this show, we've been amiss.
I definitely realize that my body in motion is my body how I like it. So Ive been in a lot of motion and getting ready in a lot of ways. So when it comes, its going to be explosive.

Huh?
As far as I can tell she's saying her body is "da bomb" (hence explosive) - and who am I to argue ? ;-)

(I think she just means she enjoys exercise and staying in shape)
Anyone else want to see a Dollhouse/Sarah Connor crossover?

(Assuming Dollhouse is set in present day that is)

And happy to hear it's still a go, strike permitting.
I'd quite like to see a NASCAR driver shoehorned into Dollhouse.
Eliza Dushku and NASCAR ? Is there such a thing as too much "hook" ?
A Sarah Connor/Dollhouse crossover? Who needs that? How about Eliza, Summer, and Lena Headey just standing around reading the phonebook for an hour?

Doesn't sound like much 'body in motion' happening there ;-)
She could be, like, riding one of those exercise bikes. Think outside the box, baxter! ;-)
Is it too late to change the series title from Dollhouse to: Eliza Dushku - Body in Motion?
Or Eliza Dushku -- Seriously, Ya'll
I am very excited about this show, I love it's close to happening, Eliza is my favorite actress and Joss my favorite writer, what a combination, if Faith is no more, then new challenges await, and I think this series could hit the big time, it's now or never I think.

I actually wasn't looking much into Tru Calling because of my devotion to Faith, but when I did watch Tru Calling, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, it was slow to start, but the show was getting better, ashamed they cut season two when they did, I actually wanted to see that season to the end, it was finally going somewhere, but with these shows you need a impressive start, I don't think Tru Calling was firing strong at the start, so they effected it's response among viewers, even if it improved later.

So with Dollhouse, already the premise is exciting, and I feel there's so much there to make this show exciting from the start, the writers strike is hurting me, 24 and Prison Break are suffering delays, and I want Dollhouse made, not the best new year start for tv shows, but crossing my fingers for the future quick!

How about Eliza Dushku: Spinning? That way you could keep in the phonebook-reading thingy (although I've personally never appreciated the charm of that) and capitalize on that whole going-nowhere-fast vibe.

Pretty much my exact reaction to that statement.
My prediction? The likelihood of Eliza having a date for the premiere is quite high.
Septimus Hell, I'd go with her, and I'm straight!
And, presumably, a woman (or else it kind of goes without saying ;).

I just took that to mean she likes physical action acting. She likes her body in motion as opposed to just standing there looking pretty. Maybe that means the series is going to have a lot of action...and possibly literally with explosions. :)
GrrrlRomeo, I take it the same way and didn't have any problem understanding it. That last bit, though, I took to mean that she's training so that when Echo has to be "in motion", she explodes into motion, almost unexpectedly.
Will Mutant Enemy be started up again, or will "Dollhouse" come under a different production company?
Saje LOL! Well, yeah duh.

Eliza's certainly come a long way from playing Arnie's daughter in True Lies.

I kept wanting to just...slap Faith. "C'mon girl! Get your head on straight! They're offering you a new life here!" One of these days, when I have a job again, I NEED to get "Angel" on DVD so I can see her complete journey.
Isn't she going to have an exec producer credit for this along with Joss?
Nice Interview :)
