'Mutant Enemy Day' Photo Essay
Despite the ominous stormclouds looming overhead, last Friday, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Firefly creator Joss Whedon and an estimated 350-400 people, comprised of former Mutant Enemy Productions staffmembers, actors, and fans (mobilized through Fans4Writers, with some flying in from across the country and as far away as the United Kingdom and Australia), picketed in support of the ongoing WGA Strike in front of 20th Century Fox.
Mutant Enemy staffers at the rally included writers and producers Marti Noxon, David Fury, Tim Minear, Ben Edlund, Jane Espenson, and Drew Goddard, while the actors included Eliza Dushku (who will be collaborating with Whedon on the forthcoming Dollhouse), Nicholas Brendon, J. August Richards, Amy Acker, Juliet Landau, Tom Lenk, Felicia Day, Nathan Fillion, Alan Tudyk, Ron Glass, Morena Baccarin, Summer Glau, Harry Groener, and Camden Toy.
Buffy's own Sarah Michelle Gellar, who is coincidentally this month's Maxim covergirl, sent over several boxes of Krispy Kreme doughnuts in support of the strike, while an individual, in a passing Ryder van, expressed his/her disapproval by lobbing two water balloons at the picketers.
