“Uhhhh… little help?”

Summer Glau, the Joss Whedon muse who starred in the short-lived “Firefly,” the follow-up movie Serenity, and the now-defunct “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” has been added to the cast of Fox’s “Dollhouse” (another Whedon project) for Season 2.

[Glau] will have a recurring role as Bennett, a Dollhouse employee who shares a secret past with Eliza Dushku’s Echo… Whedon expressed interest in Glau joining the show back at Comic Con.

**pushes glasses up nose** Hooray!  Now all the show needs is more people from the cast of “Battlestar Galactica”!

Whedon has a whole host of geek-friendly names visiting the show in season two: Jamie Bamber (from “Battlestar Galactica”) is a charismatic businessman who’s Echo’s new husband (!). Michael Hogan (“Battlestar” again) comes to Dollhouse hoping to stop a psychotic family member’s killing spree.

Granted, I don’t have the requisite geek DNA to be a big Whedon fan, but I’ve never understood why geeks have to obsess over women that operate weaponry and kick ass?  Not that I have anything against that, but given a choice I’d pick a girl who can’t kill me with her bare hands.  I’m much more likely to admire traits like “laughs at fart jokes” and “horny when drunk” and “always drunk.”
