As his fans have long known, Joss Whedon knows how to write a speech. That became very clear when Whedon delivered the commencement address at his own alma mater, Wesleyan University, on Sunday (May 26).
The results are enough to make anyone not in the Wesleyan class of 2013 jealous.
Responsible as a writer and director for everything from "The Avengers" to "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" to "Firefly," it's almost a surprise that Wesleyan hadn't asked its famous 1987 graduate to speak before. At least Whedon made up for it in this speech.
What kinds of things would this big Hollywood guy talk about? Well, in what can't be a surprise to anyone who has ever watched anything made by Joss Whedon ever, the commencement speech is about death.
And life, obviously. But there's a lot of death.
It's tempting to just copy the entire speech here. That's what happens when almost every line is excellent. »
