Joss Whedon bid $10,000 for the 'Terminator' franchise.

Joss Whedon taking over Terminator? I could dig that. As long as he did not cast Eliza Dushku. That woman cannot act worth a damn. Seriously. While Ms. Greaves is a die hard Whedon-ite, even she agrees. We watch this latest series, Dollhouse, and it is at times interesting (though doomed to cancellation, I am sure), but we agreed on the equation that prevents the show from being good. More Dushku = Bad TV. Less Dushku = Good TV. I digress

Joss Whedon bids for Terminator.

London, England (CNN) -- Film-maker Joss Whedon says he wants to buy the rights to the multi-million dollar "Terminator" franchise -- not for millions, or hundreds of thousands of dollars, but for ten grand.

That's right, $10,000.

The "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" creator made the unlikely bid in an open letter to the owners of the franchise posted on fan site Whedonesque.

Now, what does Joss Whedon have in common with The Terminator franchise?

Summer Glau. Who was awesome in Firefly, Serenity, made a smoking hot Cyborg, and is just generally cool. And fun to look at. And so much cooler and better than Eliza Dushku. Hence the picture.

Agreed. Eliza Dushku has a killer body and has a good "bad ass" expression but not so great with the actual acting thing. Her best moments are when she's not talking right before she kills someone.
