Nathan Fillion talks about Much Ado and Joss's dance moves in an interview with Vulture.

I'm surprised that "Numfar's Dance of Joy" didn't become a mainstream hit.
Like Kate254 in one of the article's comment I want nothing more than go to a Shakespeare brunch! #-D
I can't wait to see this!! I love Ken Branagh's version, and I know I'll love Joss' version as well, especially because of this:

* Fillion is a fan of his director’s sight gags.
One of his favorite parts of the movie is when Benedict (Alexis Denisof) and Claudio (Fran Kranz) show up at Leonato (Clark Gregg)’s house and have to stay in what is obviously a girls' childhood bedroom. "I love how Alexis is saying some very meaningful words, and he's sitting on a little stool between a dollhouse and a music box."

The story about wearing his Saturn Award around his neck really made me laugh.
Nathan always seems like he would be a great guy to have as a friend.

Oh...that scene was totally a gut-buster! Just watching how Alexis, Fran and Reed Diamond handled the fact that their "set" was the littlest Whedons' bedroom and Alexis has to perch himself on a piece of furniture meant for a child a fraction of his weight? My ribs are still hurting from the guffaws and other visual humour moments caused!
"Joss has the moves!" he tells us. "Name it, he can dance it. The man loves to dance."

Reminds me of the commentary for "Waiting in the Wings," where Joss says that filming dance is “the thing I love most in the world.” And yet he's done so little of it. If we're placing bets on the next Whedon project to take the world by storm, my money's on ballet. The only question is, The Rite of Spring or Swan Lake?
What happened to "The Serving Girl"? He hasn't talked about that in a long time. I was really looking forward to seeing Summer dance to the music of Joss.
How on earth did "The Serving Girl" escape my notice until right now? From my vantage point, the world just got a little better knowing that this exists in the mind of Joss.
