Sometimes you say you’d follow an actor anywhere, but then said actor ends up guesting on Private Practice and well… Luckily, Alexis Denisof’s new gig — a recurring role on Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse, which he started shooting today according to wife Alyson Hannigan’s Twitter feed — is far more appealing. I just read a rumor that Denisof is playing a senator on the show. (UPDATE: Fox tells me the character’s name is Sen. Daniel Perrin, and that he will be a thorn in the side of the Dollhouse — and Rossum Corp — through the season.) I’m torn: The man does know how to wear a suit, which he proved as Wesley on Buffy the Vampire Slayer*; but he also looked good as the casual-attired badass who, late in Angel‘s run, wasn’t afraid to pull double guns on The Beast or have hot sex with Lilah.
So, to recap: I’m okay with him playing a suit, as long as it gets dirty.
How are you hoping to see Denisof used on Dollhouse? How much have you missed him?
