Exclusive: Oscar winner enters 'Dollhouse'

Keith-carradine-dollhouse_lWhen it rains, it pours: Not only is Keith Carradine returning to Dexter this season as Deb’s Fed ex, he’s just sealed a deal to appear in two episodes of Dollhouse, sources confirm to me exclusively.

In Joss Whedon’s Fox series (returning September 25), the Nashville Oscar winner will play a powerful businessman by the name of Matthew Harding.

And yes, as of now, that’s all I — and, by extension, you — know.

Does the veteran actor’s casting make you any likelier to tune into Dollhouse? Weigh in below.

    As long as joss keeps making it as awesome as it is. I will watch.

  • tvlowdown

    Great news. I’ve always thought he was great in Dexter, and I can see him fitting in very well with Dollhouse.

    Playing a “powerful businessman”? Some bigwig from Rossum/Dollhouse perhaps?

    • Stephanie

      maybe someone allergic to seafood?

  • whishesforfishes

    I’d be watching it anyway!


  • jenn

    I’ll be watching anyways, this is just icing on the cake. With Summer Glau and Jamie Bamber also set to do guest stints on the show, my only worry is that they will outshine the already established cast.

  • readinrobin

    Britney Spears could make a guest appearance on Dollhouse and I would still watch it. Joss has me for life.

    • Chris

      This. Bizarre guest stars didn’t discourage me from watching HIMYM, and they sure as hell wouldn’t get me off a Joss show. :D

      (Not that Keith Carradine is a bad choice. I love him in Dexter!)

    • Mathew Rodriguez

      Funny enough, Britney Spears was set to guest star in the episode “I Was Made for Lovin’ You” on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but had to turn it down due to scheduling conflicts.

  • John

    I love him on Dexter, and I love Dollhouse, so my only worry is that this means Lundy’s stay is short for some reason on Dexter, which makes me sad :(. Oh well. Great actor though, stage and screen.

  • Ray Radlein

    It can’t make me more likely to watch, since things don’t get bigger than 100% likely.

  • The Other Kyle

    Epitaph One made me more likely to tune into Dollhouse. I already was on board but that episode was so unexpected and awesome. I wish season 2 picked up in the future with the brother and sister and little girl Echo.

    • LadyUranus

      Yeah, I was wondering if I could get the enthusiasm to watch Dollhouse again, or whether I’d be better off rewatching Firefly, but then I saw Epitaph One. IT’S AWESOMENESS CANNOT BE STOPPED.

    • brody

      Epitaph One was indeed pure awesome. I don’t think Zone and Mag are related, though. Did I miss something?

  • Brian

    I think the only people reading this article are Dollhouse fans…unless they are a huge Carradine fan perhaps. Anyway I don’t think you will be able to get an unbiased answer to your question on here.

    • Fyrkat

      Actually, I hate Dollhouse…but I’m a huge Carradine fan (all of em).
      My roommate is a Dollhouse freak, so I’ll watch his episodes when she tells me he’s there.
      Put a Carradine family member in any production, and I’m watching (sadly, this included ‘Lizzy Maguire’…even Robert didn’t make that train wreck good)

  • Anna Lawrence

    It couldn’t make me any more likely to tune into ‘Dollhouse’ than I already am, which is 100%. I’m not really interested in stunt casting anyway – I’m watching for the regular characters, Victor and Sierra in particular.

  • Zach

    I’d rather see his dead brother

  • Janie

    This is great news!! I have a feeling the show, which is already awesome, is going to get better and better. The guest-star lineup is just one indication (Keith Carradine + Jamie Bamber + Alexis Denisof + maybe Summer Glau!!!). Also, in Whedonverse past, Joss really hits his stride after the first season. By which I mean Buffy and Angel. Firefly was magic from the beginning. But I digress! Dollhouse. YES.

  • Matches Malone

    The show became watchable around episode nine, so, now I’ll be paying attention to what’s going on in it.

  • shig

    hell yeah!!!!
    i think this season is gonna b amazin

  • rasil bathrobe

    Yeah, I was definitely going to be watching, but this is probably a good sign for the show. Awesome guest stars should equal awesome episodes (and maybe even awesome ratings?).
