Nathan Fillion has stared in Firefly ,Serenety and BTVS(Buffy the Vampire Slayer). He played great in all three roles. In BTVS he was evil but in Firefly he was good. It kinda confuses me. First I thought of him as being stero-typed into an evil person, now he has a good guys role. I think its weird that he can be very good at both types of roles.

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


That's why they call it acting.

Another good example is to contrast Jewel Staite as Kaylee vs. her role as Heidi on Wonderfalls.

I remember when Nathan played Joey on One Life to Live. He was a hottie even then.

Can't wait for Nathan's new movie in March. The trailer for "Slither" is on the internet somewhere. It looks good.

Found the trailer http://movies.yahoo.com/movie/1808716390/trailer

BTW the sheriff in The Train Job is in "Slither" too.

He is special, isn't he?? The very first time I saw SERENITY ( the movie -- I saw the movie first before finding out about FIREFLY)... It only took me a few minutes ( after the initial intro about the new verse, the escape of Simon and River)to realize who the main hero was gonna be and another minute to say to myself that .... That's my kinda hero..... I'd follow him to the end if I have to..... That's MY CAPTAIN!!!
This is the Captain... We're having a little problem with our entrance sequence so we might experience some turbulence and then explode"

I had the same exact gut level reaction to seeing Malcolm Reynolds the first time....

I would follow that man anywhere... he's my Captain.

"Oh, captain, my captain..."

Yea... hence my name..

At first I thought Nathan as Mal was ok until I saw what he did to Niska's man in Train Job (during it's tv's run). I merely said, "Holy crap!".
And so, MER always thought of the captain as funny/kick ass even when he's a mean little critter.

The End.

If he's been type-cast as anything, it's as a priest (good or evil). I believe he's had at least three priest roles (including Buffy and Dracula 2000). But he'll always be my Captain...

I first saw Nathan as Caleb and for reasons Buffy fans will know best, I soon hated him. Indeed, when I heard that Firefly was cancelled, my reaction was "good", partly so that Joss could concentrate on Angel and partly because of how personally I took Nathan's role.

Of course, I do feel a little sheepish about it now...

Was watching TBS today, Sunday, and saw Nathan in Blast From the Past as Cliff the ex boyfriend. Someone also pointed out that he was in Saving Private Ryan. Will have to watch again and see if I see him.

Have a better one!!!

You cannot miss him.. he is the FIRST Private Ryan they meet (wrong one) who thinks his little brothers have been killed.. he goes from average GI Joe to complete meltdown with the (wrong) news.. short screen time.. but well used.. and he has already worked with Spielberg... impressive!

he also was in a show called two guys, a girl, and a pizza place...which later just became known as two guys and a girl...this is the first place I know him from as I was not a huge buffy or angel fan (I promise my fanaticism for these BIG DAMN HEROES makes up for it)...

this show also starred ryan reynolds in his pre van wilder/blade 3 etc. days..

EDIT: this was a sitcom, can still be seen on lifetime/usa at times i believe...i thought he was good as Johnny, Sharon's boyfriend, and he played a blue collar guy with a dry, witty sense of humor...a role I thought he did very well...so when I got hooked on the 'Verse seeing him be the humorous sort fit perfectly

Same here...it took me a few episodes to make sure I could trust him to be a good guy, seeing as he can be a bit scary:) but once I did I knew I'd found my hero. I'd follow him to the ends of the earth.....and the fact that I'm saying that in earnest about a fictional character says a lot.

Nathan makes makes you feel so much for Mal that he not only begins to seem real, he becomes someone you love and care about and can feel incredible loyalty towards.

Not to mention he's the reason I discovered Firefly in the first place; I saw a preview in the theater for Serenity, and I instantly knew I had to look up everything that Nathan had ever been in! Love at first sight there:)

I am a HUGE fan of both Nathan and Mal:)

Thanks Chindi. Did not notice that it was Nathan and when I get a chance will look more closely. I have a tendency not to notice these things. That is why I depend on my fellow Browncoats to tell me. Thanks again!!!

Have a better one!!!

I had no idea Jewel was on Wonderfalls. I loved that show when it was on, ahem, Fox. The whole series is in my Netflix queue right now. I think I am gonna bump it up.
