What’s Happening in the Whedonverse II

Continuing with our What’s Happening in the Whedonverse series, WhedonAge is looking at what’s coming up with some of our Whedon alumni.  These are little tidbits that you may want to mark on your calendars so you won’t forget to tune in, buy tickets or get to the DVD store!

When Warehouse 13 returns to SyFy this summer, there will be a couple of guest stars every Whedon fan will love to see: Jewel Staite and Sean Maher from Firefly.  In an episode entitled “Mild Mannered,” Maher will portray a shy young man who gets exposed to a dangerous object that changes him physically.  Staite will play the unknowing object of his desire.  Kind of a reversal of roles, considering Kaylee’s unrequited affection for Simon Tam in the short-lived Fox series.    We’ll remind you of this again in a few months, but there’s no reason not to mark July on your calendar as the return of Warehouse 13!

Don’t forget that on Friday April 2nd Anthony Stewart Head’s Merlin begins its SyFy run with season one before moving on to the never-aired-in-the-US season two!  The show airs at 10 PM ET/PT, so tune in and see Head’s “kingly” performance!

Julie Benz in The Boondock Saints: All Saints Day DVD was released on March 9, 2010, so get out to your local Suncoast or Best Buy and grab up this film!  The film also stars original Boondock Saints headliners Sean Patrick Flannery and Norman Reedus.

Sarah Michelle Gellar’s movie, Possession was also released on March 9, 2010.  The movie stars Lee Pace (Wonderfalls, Pushing Daisies) and Michael Landes (Special Unit 2, Material Girl).  The film is about a woman’s life that is thrown into chaos after a freak car accident sends her husband and brother-in-law into comas. Thrills arrive after the brother-in-law wakes up, thinking he’s his brother.

Seth Green is another Whedon alum whose DVD hit the stands on March 9, 2010.  Old Dogs stars John Travolta and Robin Williams as two friends and business partners find their lives turned upside down when strange circumstances lead to them being placed in the care of 7-year-old twins.

Happy Town with Amy Acker, Geoff Stults, Steve Arbuckle, Sam Neil and Matt Hopkins FINALLY has a debut date; Wednesday April 28, 2010 at 10 PM ET/PT on ABC.  The plot?  A deputy sheriff is confronted with the unsolved mystery of a half-dozen child kidnappings over the past decade in a small town in Minnesota.  Doesn’t really sound all that happy, now does it?  But Acker is always a treat to watch, so tune in and check out our small town sheriff’s wife in this new murder mystery!

Christian Kane as finally released some new music and his long awaited Christian Kane Extended Preview is eating up iTunes and Amazon.com.  In one day Kane’s EP climbed its way up to the top of the country music charts and appears to have no plans of going anywhere any time soon.   You can download the music from the two aforementioned sites or download them from Kane’s official site: Christian Kane.  There’s also a terrific little interview with Kane at iF Magazine!

There’s a new Firefly Comic Book in the works, one that takes up the story of the crew of Serenity after the movie and Wash’s death.  Comedian Patton Oswalt will write the comic entitled “Serenity: Float Out: which will feature the remaining crew christening a new ship.  The comic will also tell stories of Wash in flashback sequences.
