[show]The super connectivity of the world of Joss Whedon strikes yet again: Edward James Olmos (mentioned in the Pilot episode but not actually a cast member) would go on to play a character on Marvel's Agents of SHIELD along with other Dollhouse alumni, Dichen Lachman, Reed Diamond, Amy Acker, and Patton Oswalt. Not coincidentally, that series is also written by Joss, his brother Jed Whedon and sister in law Maurissa Tancharoen (who appears in 3eps of Dollhouse as well as Dr. Horrible). Additionally Enver Gjokaj had a small role in Marvel's The Avengers, also directed by Joss, of which SHIELD is a spin-off series. He was also in the Agent Carter series, which connects to the other Marvel series and films. You can also find numerous actresses and actors in Dollhouse from Whedon's previous shows and future films; Eliza Dushku (Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel), Amy Acker (Angel, Cabin in the Woods, and SHIELD as mentioned previously), Summer Glau (Angel and Firefly), Alan Tudyk and Mark Sheppard (Firefly), Felicia Day (Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog), Fran Kranz (Cabin in the Woods), Keith Carradine (Angel), as well as others I'm sure. Fran Kranz and Amy Acker would work with Whedon again in Cabin In The Woods, which also stars Chris Hemsworth, Thor himself, for another link back to Joss. In short, it's extremely common for Joss Whedon to cast actors/actresses he's worked with previously and use them over and over again in both his series and films.
