We all know the great Harold Ramis (“Caddyshack,” “Groundhog Day”) directed “The Office’s” knee-slapper of an hourlong Christmas episode.
Way back on Halloween, Newsday reported (and TV Guide confirmed) that J.J. Abrams (“Mission: Impossible III”) would direct a February episode of the sitcom.
Now comes word that a third feature director, Joss Whedon, may be directing an episode set to air next month as well. Monday, a blog called Televisionary.com got wind of this. The Whedonesque website picked up the item. Whedon himself posted beneath the item early this morning, and denied nothing.
In other Whedon news, comicscontinuum.com recently posted the supercool cover for the second issue of “Buffy The Vampire Slayer,” the new Whedon-authored funnybook that will follow Ms. Summers' “8th-season” adventures. Find it here.
