Sideshow: Whedon, from 'Buffy' to the Bard
How do you go from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, and the 2012 blockbuster The Avengers to Shakespeare? Enthusiastically, says Joss Whedon, god of all sci-fi geeks. The Bard is the greatest teacher one could have, Whedon tells USA Today. "He speaks to you very personally," says the director of the critical hit Much Ado About Nothing, which stars Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, and Nathan Fillion.
