Happy New Year! It's been a busy holiday for Tahmoh news. Here's what you may have missed:
Los Angeles Times Profile: "Faces to Watch: Tahmoh Penikett," which has some nice comments from Katee Sackhoff and Joss Whedon and was accompanied by this lovely photo:
"He's really introspective and smart, that was always clear."Kristen from E!Online interviews Tahmoh about Battlestar's finale:
Whedon, a very vocal "Battlestar" fan, echoed the sentiment. "I don't know where it comes from, but Tahmoh has this wonderful sadness amidst being tall and handsome and strong. He was the first name I came up with to play Paul.
"He brought up this book I'd read, Kazuo Ishiguro’s ‘Never Let Me Go,’ that I'd completely forgotten about as a precursor to 'Dollhouse,' " Whedon said. "At that point we just absolutely clicked." (Penikett said Whedon's reaction was more like: "Oh, my God, I think I jacked the idea from there!")
Extra! interviews Eliza Dushku and intercuts clips of Paul & Echo fighting:
Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive clip from the Dollhouse premiere.
