- According to Just Jared, Josh Radnor is in the October issue of the LA Times magazine – it’s unclear whether it’s just that one quote or if there’s a full interview. Anyone got a copy handy?
- Television Without Pity interviewed Craig Thomas. It’s a great interview, lots of information – if you’re concerned about spoilers, I would say it’s safe. He does talk about upcoming episodes, but it’s all very general, and the most specific he gets is saying who Jason Jones will play.
- New photo of Neil.

A transcript of the Washington Post chat can be found here. [Some Dr. Horrible spoilers.] My favorite part:
Damn: I’m straight and I think I’d go out with you. Probably upset the wife and kids, though. So what do you think happened to Doogie? Did he grow up, buy a Porsche and start a family practice in the suburbs?
Neil Patrick Harris: He probably developed an addiction to painkillers and wanders around with a cane at some hospital somewhere…
There’s also a small piece of Emmy talk from him here.
As for the Future!Mosbys – Bob Saget has been cast in a new CW sitcom, and apparently Ted’s son and Robin’s sister are dating.

The Washington Post did a live chat with Joss Whedon earlier today – you can read the whole thing here, but here’s the big stuff:
Stuttgart, Germany: I want, no, I need a sequel! Any chances?
Joss Whedon: It’s over! Let it go!
Or, okay…. We’d love to, but it wouldn’t be simple and it wouldn’t be soon. And frankly, Neil needs to work on his singing. The voice has promise, but…
Calgary, Alberta: Any ETA on the CD/DVD?
Joss Whedon: Soon as we can, but definitely in time to make the perfect stocking stuffer! (Why does that sound dirty this time…?)
