    Had she not debunked it I would have thought it true. THis would keep in line how Joss Whedon likes to re use people. Mainly ones from firefly.

    It's an IMDb cast list. Should never be used as proof, evidence or corroboration until after a movie has been released. And even then it might not accurate.
