Dr. Horrible the musical!

Weird, weird, weird. Yet totally awesome. According to Cinematical your hero and mine NPH, aka Neil Patrick Harris recently let slip rumors of a project he was working on with fan favorite director Joss Whedon. Well it's not a big project, but since the cat was out of the bag Joss explained all over at his website, and man is it ever cool sounding.

The project, Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-long Blog is a web series that has just started filming and is written and directed by Whedon. While only announced to be consisting of 3 ten minute long webisodes, Joss described it as "the story of a low-rent super-villain, the hero who keeps beating him up, and the cute girl from the laundromat he's too shy to talk to." And NPH is starring as Dr Horrible. With none other than Nathan Fillion of Firefly fame is starring as his opponent, Captain Hammer. And Felicia Day, who played Vi on Buffy, rounding out the cast.

This is so crazy it honestly just might work. I love this kind of weird web stuff, and I bet from this creative team we could get something really fun. Also, NPH can actually sing. Just check out this video of NPH and Jason Segel singing the Confrontation from Les Mis... classic.
