We like to imagine the bonds formed by actors who have been involved in Joss Whedon projects are lifelong and unbreakable. That’s perhaps why it tickles us to see Alan Tudyk and Eliza Dushku on screen together in this exclusive clip from Tudyk’s Con Man. The webseries follows Wray Nerely (Tudyk), a sardonic actor who was once on a beloved sci-fi series, Spectrum. (Lest you forgot, Tudyk was once on the beloved sci-fi series Firefly.) In the second season’s upcoming sixth episode, Wray auditions for a role on something called Dr. Cop Lawyer because The Mysteries Of Laura was obviously already taken. Dushku plays the no-nonsense casting director, who informs him the director will be watching on an unceremonious live stream.

Though Tudyk and Dushku have a variety of Whedon credits among them, they overlapped on his Dollhouse. Tudyk—who is currently winning praise for his performance as the droll droid K-2SO in Rogue One—writes and directs Con Man as well as starring in it. Episodes of the show drop on Comic-Con HQ each Thursday at 12 a.m. PT.
