‘Castle’ star Nathan Fillion to host 2013 Writers Guild Awards in Los Angeles

 

When it comes to smarts, charm, and humor (not to mention a great, saucy smirk), Nathan Fillion is the total package.

Appropriately, then, the actor — who plays a writer on ABC’s Castle – has been tapped to host the 2013 Writers Guild Awards in February.

The Writers Guild of America, West announced Fillion, also the star of the long beloved defunct sci-fi western TV cult hit Firefly, as the ceremony’s host on Monday. The awards show will be held Sunday, Feb. 17, 2013, at the JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE.

Fillion joked about the honor with his signature panache for goofy, self-deprecatory wit.

“When I first accepted the honor of hosting the Writers Guild Awards, I was confused and actually thought I was receiving one. Since I play a writer on TV, I felt perhaps someone was under the impression I deserved an award and I wasn’t about to correct them,” he said in a statement. “However, now I’m in the perfect position to present myself with whichever award I choose. Who’s going to know? At the very least, I can network with the most talented writers in the business in preparation for my next round of unemployment. It’s a win/win.”

Added the awards show’s executive producer Cort Casady, “We think Nathan’s an extraordinary choice to host the 2013 Writers Guild Awards. Not only does he play a writer brilliantly on Castle, but also, in addition to acting, he sings, dances, is a popular voice talent, and has a great gift for comedy. And with over 1.5 million Twitter followers, Nathan brings a smart, enthusiastic audience to our celebration of writing.”

Fillion, a longtime muse to Firefly creator Joss Whedon, also stars in The Avengers director’s movie adaptation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, being released next June, plus in the sequel Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, out in August.

Nathan Fillion Wants to Be Nathan Drake

 

irefly leading man Nathan Fillion has urged fans to support him in his bid to headline the film adaptation of Naughty Dog’s Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.

Few actors command geek heartstrings in the way that Nathan Fillion does. He was the star of the beloved Firefly, and the antagonists of the final season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. He was Sgt. Buck in Halo 3: ODST, and he’s been rumored to be the front-runner for the role of Ant-Man in the Avengers movie. Now, he may have the chance to add yet another “geeky” role to his credits: Nathan Drake, the charming leading man of Naughty Dog’s popular Uncharted games.

This past weekend, it was announced that David O. Russell – having jumped ship from the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies film adaptation – had signed on to direct the game-to-movie conversion of Naughty Dog’s 2007 hit Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. When he learned the news, Fillion sounded the call to arms via Twitter:

“If ever there was a Twitter campaign, let this be it. Rise, ye Browncoats. Rise, ye Castillions. RISE! http://j.mp/aEGe79″

In other words, Nathan Fillion wants to play Nathan Drake, and he wants his Firefly and Castle devotees to lobby Columbia Pictures to cast him in the role.

I am completely in favor of this. As seen in Captain Mal Reynolds, Fillion has the Indiana Jones/Han Solo/John McClane/Tintin act down cold. Sure, he might not sound like the Nate Drake we all know and love, but eh, maybe they can just get Nolan North to do the dub voicing. That they share the same first name – double Nathan all the way, across the sky! – is just extra icing on this particularly sweet cake.

Rumor: Hank And Janet Of The Avengers Have Been Cast!

 

As many have predicted and speculated, word is, one deal has been done and the second should be done soon with official announcements at Comic-Con.

A well trusted source close to Marvel Studios is saying that Nathan Fillion (Serenity) will be playing Dr. Henry “Hank” Pym. The actor is in final negotiations for a multi film deal that would start with The Avengers in 2012. Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives) will play Janet Van Dyne as has long been speculated ever since leaving Marvel with a stack of Avengers resource material (that’s comic books to you and me) in 2008. This would actually make her the second person cast for the movie, only behind that of Robert Downey Jr.

At this point, they may only be playing S.H.I.E.L.D. scientists. No word on whether any of their super powers will be seen in the first Avengers or not. Their relationship has not been clearly defined either: simply co-workers and/or husband and wife are all still on the table. Official announcements, along with other Avengers casting news, will be done at Comic-Con in San Diego next month.

The Thrilling Adventure Performance

 

On June 5th Nathan attended the event The Thrilling Adventure Performance. And thanks to Liz/laweekly.com for sending in the link to a post about it they did for all the fans to read. As well as that i have added in Ten photos from the event it’s self to, The photos are thanks to Jonathan Reilly.

Fearless superheroes battling feathered evildoers, male Martians having their egg sacs (!) violated by their disgusted compadres, and pint-sized sidekicks being brainwashed by Nazi vamps to assassinate President Roosevelt, all in an evening’s entertainment for the intrepid cast of the Thrilling Adventure Hour series, now in its fourth month at Largo after a successful run at the much-smaller M Bar since 2005. The live, mock-vintage radio serial – co-written by the fantastically talented team of Acker & Blacker and boasting an impressive cast of regulars in addition to excellent guest stars for each month’s installment — delivered what few would argue was one of their best shows to date last Saturday night in front of a beyond-sold out crowd. (A goodly-sized group of hopefuls were turned away at the door, a first for the show in the larger Largo digs.) Lending name power to the show on this month were Kids in the Hall legend Dave Foley; Freaks & Geeks vets Linda Cardellini and Martin Starr; Web Soup and Nerdist.com honcho Chris Hardwick; Heroes and Alias vet David Anders (who was a surprise addition); and Castle star Nathan Fillion, whose ginormous fan base from his days in the captain’s seat on Firefly no doubt contributed a bit to the rush for tickets. (An especially fervent fan sent Fillion flowers at the theater earlier in the day. “I never get flowers,” Hardwick joked before the show, “although a guy once gave me a firewall as a present.”)

Nathan Fillion: I’ll leave it to people who can handle the stress

 

What’s the show about?

It’s about a murder mystery novelist who teams up with a homicide detective. He uses her as research for a new character for a book but also helps her solve crimes.

Have you had any literary ambitions?

No, I leave that to smarter people. I wrote a comedy pilot, which is when I figured out it’s a bit of an ordeal. I’ll leave it to people who can handle the stress.

Does being in a regular series give you time to do anything else?

No, that’s the one drawback of being in a one-hour series, there’s no time. Not even for real life, let alone other projects.

What impact does starring in a show that gets cancelled have on your career?

Hopefully none because I’ve been on a lot of cancelled shows. It’s always disappointing. I’ve been on shows I thought were great and really invested in them. I like to think I was on good shows that people weren’t watching. I’m used to it by now, though.

What roles have had the biggest impact on your career?

The roles given to me by Joss Whedon on Buffy and Firefly. He’s the one who took me from being cast as the main guy’s brother or best friend or the main girl’s ex-boyfriend and gave me lead roles.

Until someone gives you that opportunity, people are reluctant to cast you as the lead. He was the first person to cast me as a villain, on Buffy, and in a lead role, on Firefly, then as the lead in a motion picture on the Firefly movie. He’s single-handedly done more for me than anyone else in Los Angeles.

Do cult shows such as Buffy and Firefly attract kooky fans?

No, they’re level-headed and intelligent and passionate about the shows. I was on a daytime soap opera and that attracted kooky fans, people
who were reluctant to draw a line between fantasy and reality. They didn’t want to know my name was Nathan, they wanted to pretend I was really Joey.

What are the highs and lows of being on a daytime soap opera?

The high is being employed and getting to work every day. I’ve never worked as hard as I did on One Life To Live. It was a 44-minute show every day of the year. I worked with people who’d been on the show for 30 years. They became family. The lows are realising not every show is going to be incredible but still going out there and doing the best work you can. People don’t give soaps enough credit.

Did you have any crazy storylines?

My mother had a split personality and one of her personalities kidnapped my older woman lover and kept her in a soundproof prison in her basement.

Why did you want to act?

I did musicals in high school and thought being on stage was cool, and then got involved in an improv theatre in Edmonton. It was owned by the actors, it was an incredible place. We got to do whatever shows we wanted and it was a real thrill. I wanted to keep doing it.

Any acting mishaps?

I got kicked in the knee by a stuntman on Buffy and it still hurts all these years later.

What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?

Delivering papers as a kid. What a crappy job, I hated it, it’s completely mindless work. Doing it in the winter in Canada was absolutely no fun.

What’s the best thing about coming from Canada?

Having some perspective. It’s really hard to find world news in the US, it feels really egocentric as far as the media goes. So it’s nice to be able to have a broader view of things when I’m watching news in the US.
