Joss Whedon and Womb Envy

An interview with Joss Whedon on Mother Jones.

I am not so sure about his comparison of Telly - feminine and movies as masculine but I did find a lot of his comments refreshing. Not like the typical "I love this corporation, they are my best friends, he was a great actor to work with..."

By the way, did you know he was one of the writers for Toy Story?


MJ: In the second-to-last season of Angel, the hero actually takes a job with Wolfram and Hart, and eventually he just loses it and brings down the house.

JW: Well, you know, I'm sure I'm going to bring down News Corp with Dollhouse. Hmmm—maybe you shouldn't quote that. I'm not a huge fan of Mr. Murdoch's politics, God knows, or his methods. But I've been at Fox on and off for practically the whole of my career. Am I the biggest hypocrite in the world for taking their money? Am I doing any good? Or am I working for Wolfram and Hart? I feel at the end of the day, I'm doing some good. They're letting me tell my stories. We'll see if the stories on Dollhouse actually come out the way I plan them to.
