Nathan Fillion
Your first and ultimate online resource for talented actor, Nathan Fillion.

Everyone’s got heroes. The jocks have LeBron James and Peyton Manning. The brainiacs have Steve Jobs and Stephen Hawking. Us geeks? We’ve got Nathan Fillion. The Canadian actor’s a proud card-carrying member of the geek community at large who’s been knee-deep in roles in stuff that make fanboys drool: space cowboy Capt. Malcolm Reynolds in Firefly, evil priest Caleb in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and egotistical hero Captain Hammer in the web series Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, among them. Fillion’s always keeping his toes in nerd waters — he voices a character in the new Halo: Reach video game, and recently did some work on an upcoming episode of the Venture Bros. animated series — but he’s broken out in prime time on ABC’s Castle. He stars as overconfident mystery novelist Richard Castle, who helps solve cases and engages in witty banter with the no-nonsense police detective, Kate Beckett (Stana Katic). The show returns for its third season Monday, with Castle in hot water when he’s found at a murder scene with a gun. (Uh oh!) At Comic-Con in July, I tracked down the Edmonton-raised Fillion for an entertaining interview in a San Diego hotel lobby. What do two geeks like us talk about? Star Wars, comic books and Castle, of course, but also the charitable effort he co-founded and is endlessly proud of, Kids Need to Read. Read below for some of our conversation, and check out this clip from Monday’s season premiere of Castle.
