Personal Quote:

[about "Serenity" and making a movie] When you're making a movie, you gotta amp it up, you gotta go to a greater scale and everything is gonna be a little grander, you hero is gonna be more "heroicaler" . . . yes, that's a word . . . now . . . See more »

Trivia:

The August 21, 1995, draft of the screenplay for Twister (1996) credits Joss Whedon and Jeff Nathanson as writers. Neither writer is credited in the final film. See more »

Trademark:

Often gives his characters names that are later revealed to be their last names and/or based on an unusual abbreviation for their full name. For example: only after the character Oz had already left Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1996) did the show reveal that "Oz" was an abbreviation of his full name, Daniel Osbourne; on "Angel," they did not clarify that Doyle was actually the character's last name ...
