I wouldn't say that I'm a Joss Whedon groupie—not at all—but it's hard to avoid the man. He has been involved in many, many projects, so is it a surprise that I like a few of them? I recently enjoyed watching the entire series of Firefly on Netflix, and a friend recommended I try Dollhouse. I'm not entirely sure if I really like Dollhouse, but I noticed something while watching it.
Can you see it, too?
I never would have thought there was something strange going on here just by comparing Angel and Captain Malcolm Reynolds, but when you throw in what's-his-face from Dollhouse...well. Three times is not a coincidence, it's a pattern.
Joss apparently has an idea for what a leading man ought to look like, and that ideal includes large (and smashed-in-looking from some angles) nose, dark hair, heavy jawlines, and beefy builds. He also prefers his gentlemen to be rough around the edges, rebels, and...well, violent (but with a good heart). But what does it mean? Did Joss have a crush on Han Solo as a kid? (Though Harrison Ford's nose isn't really squashy enough for the Whedon ideal.)
