To wrap up this week’s Link Salad, I’ll leave you with the new trailer for Joss Whedon’s next film. Did you hear me? I said JOSS WHEDON. Much Ado About Nothing is, well, based on Shakespeare’s play, and updated for us modern folk. It’s not the first time this has been done, but has it ever been done quite like this? Probably not. And Nathan Fillion’s in it. Did you hear me? I said NATHAN FILLION!!! Also Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, and Sean Maher, who are all from past Whedon shows.
