    I just love the actor that plays Victor/ Anthony..HE was the most versitile "doll" AND then when they made him Topher 2.0. TWISE. THAT killed me. I am certain if Joss ever does another show ( and lets face it we all hope he gets another chance) he will rehire him to play something, anything..The actor has a different sounding name, I am sure someone will mention it but he has GOT to go on..

    Enver Gjorkaj, and YES! he was my favourite of the dolls! (not including the girls but that's for other reasons ) Him as Topher and Kiki were some of the best moments of season 2!

    I'm just watching the latest episode right now, and I would like to wholeheartedly agree with the idea that he is completely amazing. He takes on the Topher persona so thoroughly, so convincingly, that every time I glance away from the TV, I have to look at it again to be sure which character is actually speaking.

    Enver Gjokja. And, yes, I love him. I hope he goes on to have an awesome career. Joss Whedon found a gem in him!

    I think I'd be happy if there was a Dollhouse spinoff just for Victopher, or if Enver got his own show.

    well there's already a show he would of been perfect for (except the main character is female). I'm referring to the United States of Tara. Haven't watched it but the premise would fit Enver's AWESOMENESS!

    He sounds like Topher. He really is amazing. Of all the cast, I think he deserves to go the highest (given his performance).

    Can anyone think of an easy way to spell his last name? I always spell it differently and I feel like I'm doing him disjustice 'cause he's so unbelievably awesome.
    Gjokaj? Gjovkaj? Gvojak? Gvokaj? Gojkav? Gokjav?
    What a ridiculous surname!

    Then TV.com has it misspelled.

    IMDb has it "Gjokaj. No R. That's also how the opening credits have it as well. If you look at the video clips on the home page here where he's interviewed, that's how it's spelled. It's pronounced "Joke-eye."

    And what do you mean it's a ridiculous last name? It's his last name. It's Russian in origin. It's an interesting name. And makes him fit right in, because a lot of the cast have interesting names.

    I didn't mean it like that, I just meant it's annoying to spell.

    It's Enver's voice.

    I think his voice is slightly lower than Fran's is. He's pitching his voice a little unnaturally when Enver is playing Topher, and you can hear the slighest strain. Other than that, it is his voice. It is amazingly uncanny, though. When I first heard it, I swore Fran recorded it.

    L.O.L.

    This show needs to be on the air. Like, yesterday. Does anyone have Whedon's phone number...?

    He means it not easy to read in English. He is right, too, most Russian names are quite easy to pronounce phonetically, so this actor clearly has a "weird" one.

    I'd just like to say that the scenes with Topher and 'Victopher' were hilarious, especially towards the end, where their Topherisms were syncronized... ha ha.
