Summer has already completed the greatest role of her career, so what other types of characters or movies would you like to see her take on?
I think the greatest of her characters are still yet to come. River and Cameron were woefully minor parts in their respective shows. What I would like is a show that is built around her, a character that is written specifically for her.
Whedon was on the Colbert Report some time ago to promote Much Ado About Nothing. When asked which project he'd like to tackle next Whedon answered "a ballet". I think if that happens Summer is going to be in it and I would definitely like to see it.
I'd like that. But an American Doctor is unlikely. First there needs to be a female Doctor, then a black Doctor and then maybe there's room for Summer to take the role. By then she will probably be a more fitting age too. If her likeness to Sigourney Weaver is any clue then she will age beautifully, so that's something to look forward to.
Personally, I don't care about the subject matter, or even widespread appeal of the show. I just want her to star in something that makes people feel for her character. River and Cameron were two characters that really stood out and affected the viewer. Her characters on The Cape, Alphas, etc., don't seem to do the same.
It's kind of dismissive to say that she has already peaked. I'm not going to say that she hasn't played some incredibly captivating roles, but if she gets the opportunity I'm confident that she will top her previous roles.
I don't know what I'd want her to take on. I'd be curious to see how well she does comedy, and I guess we will see that with her guest spot on the Comedy Central show.
I could just list of a bunch of shows that I think it would be awesome if she got a permanent role on, or at least guest starred:
Game of Thrones. As far as I know she is a fan, so it's not implausible. Roles are going to be limited because they're based on the books though. I haven't read them yet so I can't comment on what character she could play.
Suits. Would be interesting to see her as a lawyer, I think that could be a pretty great fit actually.
Castle. Obviously, although since it's fairly episodic this would probably be a guest role.
I'm hoping that there's a cool part for her on Hannibal. I haven't read the books, but I'm sure there's at least one serial killer they can reinvent enough to fit her.
I really wish there were more shows currently airing that are perfect for her. All of the "big" shows currently airing don't really have room for the kind of character we like to see Summer play, and all of the shows with room for a character like that are a bit mediocre.
On the bright side, she obviously has a long career ahead of her, even if it doesn't include another River Tam or Cameron. Who knows what we'll see her in 5 years down the line?
If you owned a movie theater, what sort of food would you serve? Me? I'd serve crab legs.

So did I <3 Summer just fell of the face of the earth, or what happened? Excuse my newfaggotry.
Not to be a creepy stalker but I can recognize her posting style in waifu related threads on /tv/ like iZombie and Person of Interest.
E.G. she actually puts effort into analyzing the story unlike every other poster.
Nah, Summer STILL looks better in goggles...
Does anyone else have Summer Glau related desktops, phones, rooms, etc.? I only have a Summer Glau wallpaper, but I'm hoping some of you guys here can outdo me a bit.
>A Firefly reunion is taking flight on Castle.
>Summer Glau has signed on to guest-star opposite her onetime Serenity captain Nathan Fillion in a spring episode of the ABC drama, TVLine has learned exclusively.
>Glau will play Kendall Frost, a provocative private detective in Los Angeles who who competes with — you guessed it — Castle to solve a deadly mystery. She will appear in this season’s 14th episode.
Kinda big news, don't you think? ':3
Decided to visit /r/SummerGlau for the first time in a while and found this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHZT8Hy_wdI
It finally came out after all this time!! Started watching it last night and didn't like it enough to even get to the part where Summer shows up, but that's just me.

well at least I know what it feels like to have a stroke now
this is kind of what a say 4 year old thinks telling a joke is like, if you just say random things then it's weird and funny, you don't have to actually base the jokes on anything, just form inane sentences
Oh shit, I'd forgotten all about this. I remember thinking it sounded like a fun idea and being sure it would get picked up (one of several occasions on which I was rather overly optimistic about Summer's career), then being pretty pissed off when it vanished without a trace.
Judging by this thread I guess I know why that happened now, but it's always fun to see an unaired pilot even apart from Glau.
It really is pretty amazing it got to the pilot stage.
Its like writers were pretending to work when the boss walked by and wrote random words/sentences but were goofing off doing something else.
If you took a bag of really bad jokes, that failed selection for "New Girl" plus all the hipster cliches you can fit in a messenger bag and shook it up, then you probably get something similar to this...
Not by any length the worst thing I've ever seen, I watched some of the show based on the insurance company cavemen, but it was pretty dire.
