    I know this thread has been done but now we know the characters better who would you cast from the world of Whedon?

    Eliza Dushku-Echo
    James Marsters-Boyd Langton
    Seth Green-Topher Brink
    Nathan Fillion-Paul Ballard
    Alexis Denisof-Victor
    Summer Glau-Sierra
    Julie Benz-Adelle Dewitt
    Jewel Staite-November
    Morena Baccarin-Dr Claire Saunders
    Adam Baldwin-Laurence Dominic

    I wouldn't really recast anyone but Dushku but assuming we're just, for fun, excluding the Dollhouse only-people then I'd probably go with:

    Amy Acker as Echo. Let's face it; if you're making a tv show then you should have Amy in it somewhere.

    Alexis Denisof or maybe DB Woodside as Boyd

    Seth Green or Jonathan M Woodward as Topher. Woodward's perhaps a bit obvious since he would end up being similar to Knox. Andy Hallett maybe if he were still with us.

    Nathan Fillion is a good idea as Ballard. I like J August Richards or DB Woodside for that part too.

    Neil Patrick Harris as Victor

    No idea about Sierra. Just get Chiwetel Ejiofor then make Sierra a guy and maybe change his name.

    Julie Benz as Adelle. As long as she could make it distinct from Darla.

    Jewel Staite as November

    Summer Glau as Saunders

    Ron Glass as Mr Dominic

    I wouldn't mind challenging certain actors to do a role they weren't so familiar with. It worked for Alpha. I think NPH and Ron Glass would do great!

    If I was gony put Felicia in then probably as Ivy.

    Oh he is awesome. He should be in the show. And he should have some horrible disease that prevents him from wearing any clothes

    Seth Green as Topher sounds cool

    *shakes head* You are truly impossible, Ms. Maniac! *grin* Seth Green already looks like Topher so it would probably work!

    I bet you are very angry that they didn't cast David Boreanaz as Paul Ballard, LL, I know how much you appreciate his acting .

    Oh, holy hell! Jewel Staite as November? Much as I love her, I'd like to see her as more of a conflicted Dollhouse staffer than as a doll.

    The only person from the Whedon-verse who I'd put in is Stephanie Romanov(Lilah Morgan) to play Adelle Dewitt - The first time I seen Adelle and everytime since then I always think that Stephanie would have owned the role.

    She would have been awesome as Adelle, but I really can't think anyone besides Olivia Williams could carry it off as well.

    Maybe Stephanie as an FBI agent or a menacing client would fit.

    Eh, it would work, but I think Adelle and Lilah are too similair.
    Plus, Olivia Williams rocks.

    Ah well, nothing terribly. I wasn't really a big fan of Lilah although she had her moments.

    I certainly wouldn't go out of my way to put her back in a show I was watching and, seriously, she's got nothin' on Olivia Williams.

    Stephanie Romanov and Lilah are both awesome but agreed, Olivia is perfect for the role .

    Definitely agreed with you there. I actually hated her passionately in Seasons 1 and 2, but started liking her when
