Variety has published it’s top 15 highest paid tv actors for 2016, and Nathan Fillion has managed to score himself in the top 10. With the rankings, he ties with Jesse Tyler Ferguson from Modern Family at $12 million.
Joss Whedon is back with a new passion project, and he’s enlisted a few friends — a few very famous, superhero friends — to help.
The writer-director has launched Save the Day, a super PAC focused on encouraging Americans to get out and vote on Election Day. The first phase of that effort is a star-studded PSA that launched Wednesday featuring the likes of Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, Julianne Moore, Yvette Nicole Brown, and Leslie Odom Jr.
The Save the Day website reads, “We are a short-form production company dedicated to the idea that voting is a necessary and heroic act. That every voice in this wonderfully diverse nation should, and must, be heard. That the only thing that can save democracy is the act that defines it. We are committed to fighting the apathy, cynicism, and honest confusion that keeps citizens from using their vote. And to reminding an increasingly out-of-touch and compromised set of representatives that they are answerable to the people they were hired to serve.”
The Whedon-helmed PSA, titled “Important,” features that bevy of celebrities urging Americans to vote on Nov. 8. While it doesn’t mention either Republican or Democratic presidential candidates Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton by name, Cheadle warns against “a racist, abusive coward who could permanently damage the fabric of our society.” Odom Jr. also asks, “Do we want to give nuclear weapons to a man whose signature move is firing things?”
There’s a 100-percent chance of Rainer Shine.
Nathan Fillion will appear in several episodes as a self-important weatherman with whom Phil develops a friendship. “He has always been Phil’s favorite weatherman,” says Lloyd, adding: “Phil imagines that might have been a career path for him had things worked ever so slightly differently for him, but the guy is small-time celebrity and imagines he’s a little bit larger celebrity than he is. Phil idolizes him and then gets a little jealous when that guy starts lavishing attention on other family members.”
Firefly alums Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk us all with their series Con Man, so what’s the logical next step after creating a crazy popular show about comic conventions? A game about them, obviously!
In a trailer released on Entertainment Weekly, animated versions of Fillion and Tudyk explain why you need Con Man: The Game. Most of us have been to some sort of convention, and I’m sure at one point or another we’ve all had at least a fleeting thought about starting one very own celebrating our particular brand of geekdom.
Well, forget collecting funds, creating Kickstarters, and figuring out how to get celebrities to stop by, because with Con Man: The Game, you get to create the convention of your dreams. Your goal is to put on the best con you possibly can, so in addition to making it amazing, you also need to remember the little things that make a HUGE difference; things like emptying the garbage cans (seriously, if you’ve been to a convention, you know how gross those can get) before ENORMOUS RATS invade the event, making sure you’ve got plenty of bathrooms for con-goers, and keeping the food tasty and fresh (nobody wants to get food poisoning while they’re in full-armored cosply, y’all).
Oh, and you also have to use some of your specially-skilled superfans to help fight off occasional alien incursions. You know, normal convention stuff.
In addition to Fillion and Tudyk, the game also features some of our faves like Felicia Day and Joss Whedon, among others.
Have you downloaded the game? What are you most excited about trying? Tell us all about your dream convention in the comments!
