12 Actors Joss Whedon Always Casts In His Work

Dan Hallman/AP/Press Association Images

Joss Whedon has earned undying praise for that great characters and sharp dialogue that pepper his work, although it’s not just audiences who’re attracted to his writing skill; actors love him for the same reasons – they always know they’ve got something good to work from with a Whedon script. He really is very much an actor’s director, treating productions as incredibly collaborative processes.

All of this might explain, then, why so many actors like to work with the guy again and again. It isn’t unusual for directors to rely on the same actors (think Martin Scorsese with De Niro and DiCaprio or Tim Burton and Johnny Depp) but Whedon might just have the biggest collection of names you’ll always see in the credits of one of his productions.

Exclusive: Adam 8 Filmmaker Tells How a “Someday” Idea Becomes a Sci-Fi Feature Film

  • ScifiMafia
Editor’s Note: I met Sean Williams at Comic-Con’s Hall H between panels on the first day of the Con this past July, chatting as people do. It turns out that Sean is a filmmaker, and he’s working on a sci-fi project – travel to another planet! strong women! – that sounds really great.

Last week Sean let me know that he was ready to start “officially” talking about the project, and wanted to know what I’d like to know. I told him I wanted to know, basically, everything. How the project got started, who’s involved, where he is in the process, etc. What follows is the narrative he wrote up on the spot on his phone and sent to me via Facebook Messenger in response. One long narrative that was completely engaging. He even copied and inserted biographies as he went along. It’s no wonder the man has won writing awards.
