It still seems strange to be writing an item on Dollhouse’s season 2, considering how unlikely the prospect seemed when season 1 ended. But TV Guide has a preview article, including news of yet more crossover to Dollhouse from the exiles of Battlestar Galactica. Joining BSG’s Tahmoh Penikett will be Jamie Bamber (Apollo) and Michael Hogan (Tigh) in the first and second episodes, respectively. “Joss Whedon is a huge fan of Battlestar and ultimately it was about him wanting to bring in some very talented actors who were great for the parts,” Penikett tells TV Guide. (Dollhouse’s pilot, you’ll recall, name-checked Edward James Olmos.)

All this follows on the news that James Marsters, who played Spike on Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer, will be on BSG prequel Caprica (as will Patton Oswalt, who was in an episode of Dollhouse season 1. Caprica itself is being run by former BSG producer Jane Espenson, a Buffy alum. I’d suggest a crossover episode, but these are already starting to look like crossover series.
