20 Questions With...Anthony Head. He picks Joss as one of his favourite playwrights and directors.

Favourite directors
Josh Whedon is a phenomenal director
bring on the Ripper already!
Heh KBP... I was just about to mention that. :)
And this probably doesn't bother anyone else, but why is it ASH's place of birth is either given as "Camdentown" or, as here, "Camden town"? It's bloody Camden Town - really not so hard.

On a sweeter note, favorite co-stars include "Nicky, Alyson and Sarah Michelle." That is lovely. *lump in throat time*

And his new play is opening at the Criterion Theatre, where I worked as an usher one of my undergrad summers. Of course, that summer the wonderful British sex farce Run For Your Wife was playing endlessly . . .
And it's Milton Katselas. (Who is an interesting chap to research online, by the way. If anyone ever watched 'Unscripted' on HBO, the acting coach Frank Langella plays on that show is said to be based on Katselas, or coaches like Katselas.)
February in the States, huh? When was that Spike movie starting again?

I'm just *saying* is all .....
Like the part where he says,"I’m still trying to get myself right first, let alone worrying about anyone else!"
I love that quote...wouldn't it be nice if more people felt that way? Catalyst2, what a cheery thought! ASH and James together again!
Giles would actually be a fantastic choice to see alongside Spike in the movie. Spike leading a team consisting of Giles, Willow, Illyria and the mysteriously, recently resurrected Wesley. How cool would that be?

You out there, Joss? Huh? :)
I don't know. After ASH dissing Joss for this Josh fellow, he might not get work in a Whedon production again.
Good point Lioness. Maybe someone could delete the link before Joss sees it.
Pity after all those years ASH doesn't know Joss' name...

Ok, but seriously, how hard is it to know the tiniest bit of background on who you're interviewing? Like say, the creator if the biggest project they've been on?? And I notice Josh's name links to...pretty much nothing. 'Well done, whatsonstage.com, veeerrry well done...'
Is anyone going to see him in the play? Anyone?

That’s an interesting bit of info on the inspiration for the acting coach on ‘Unscripted’, Caroline. The acting class scenes were my favourite part of the series.
Bloodflowers - I am hoping to get there before Xmas to see him - still sick that I didnt get a chance to see Aly when she was here either :(
Hoping Wes stays dead, since they couldn't leave Spike to R.I.P. Would love to see Spike, Illyria, Giles, Andrew, Faith, however :)
Rogue Slayer, RE: the "links to nothing…"

I modified the link correctly (in the address) and Joss's actual name didn't link to anything either.

And yes, would love to have Tony/Giles for the Spike movie. Or even for my own private collection…

;)
What a group that would be, zeitgeist. Giles, Andrew and Faith in what is now the normal function of the watchers/slayers with Spike trying to figure out his and Illyria's place in things.

Or something better that Joss thinks up. ;-)
i would have to agree with zeitgeist...........as much as i lover Wesley, he was a very big reason to watch Angel, even though the show became better and better, but Wesley was just awesome. And I think he shouldn't be resurrected....his death was sad and meaningful......I think it was more acceptable with spike since he's been through so much crap already and he was always badass/comic relief. Spike, Illyria, Giles, Andrew, and Faith....wow, thats orgasmic. I really hope Joss is reading. I say we start a campaign.
Yeah, that's the group that barest_smidgen and I came up with when discussing the Spike Movie possibilities the other day.
Actually i'd agree with those of you who think Wes should probably stay dead. The reason i mentioned him in my previous post was because i read an article a while back that mentioned Joss had spoken to Alexis recently about the possibility of returning to the character. Now, whether that was meant in the form of a resurrection, a ghost or even in flashback i have no idea.

Really? I hadn't heard he'd spoken to Alexis. Wish I could read the article. Wish someone would cast him in a good tv show.
Killinj, i tried finding the original article i had read but no luck so far. I have found this one however, which also mentions the fact that Joss has spoken to Alexis, not to mention both Alyson and Amy, about appearing in the Spike movie. I'll keep trying to find that first article i saw though, it gives a little more information than this one.
I still want the ending Joss intended for Wesley, before Angel was cancelled. That's why I want Wesley brought back to life. Same goes for the Willow and Tara happy ending. See, Joss wants to write happy endings, but the PTB won't let him! I predict that one day Joss is going to fool us all by bucking his own trend of tragic love stories. :)
ESG -- did you fall and hit your head? Joss loves the pain ;)
See, and that's what we expect from Joss. More pain. Someday he's going to fool us all with happy because pain is what we expect.

Unless, of course, he's already expecting you to feel that way, so when he doles out more pain, you won't be expecting it because you were expecting the happy because he always does the pain and you thought he might buck the trend.

*snap*

Ow! I think I broke something in my brain.
