I ummed and ahh-ed about where to put this, the Buffy thread, the Dollhouse thread or this one, but since it features Capt. Tightpants, I thought this one would do.

Short interview with Joss Whedon on Dr Horrible's Sing A Long Blog from IGN.com

Question: So Dr. Horrible - How did it come about, what is it about and where will we see it?

Joss Whedon: It should be on the internet. We don't know how - We're literally just finishing it. Then we're gonna show it to people at CAA and a bunch of other people and sort of discuss, "How do we go about this? Where is the venue for this?" It's about a low-rent supervillain, who's trying to get into the Evil League of Evil and defeat his nemesis Captain Hammer and work up the nerve to talk to the pretty girl at the Laundromat. It's an idea I had awhile ago that I thought would be just right for a weird little internet venture. I wrote it with my brothers and my brother's fiancé and somehow got the best actors to jump in, which was very scary for all of us. And then we got this amazing crew and everybody just sort of said, "We'll just jump on," and in six days we shot this 36-minute, three-part oddity that I think is the most fun I've had in about seven years.

Question: And it's a musical, right?

Whedon: Yes, it sure is!

Question: How did your cast take to the musical numbers?

Whedon: Neil Patrick Harris is a Broadway star. He's the real deal. And so he scared us the most. Nathan, he sings fine. He sings very well - he's not a Broadway voice, he's a good voice. But he's Nathan! He fears nothing and he plays Captain Hammer, who's a complete idiot. So he can sell anything, and if he couldn't, he'd still sound great. But actually, he sounds really good. And we didn't do any tweaking – we didn't have the technology or the money to do any tweaking. He just got out there and did it. And Felicia; classic Felicia Day, she's like, "I don't know… I don't know if I can sing. I sing a little. I did four years of opera training, but if you want me to come and audition…" That's so Felicia. She was amazing. The first time she sang with Neil, there was something in my eye. They have a duet that just kills me.


I can't wait.
