A big happy birthday shout-out to everyone’s favorite Firefly Captain,
The fearless smuggler (Firefly), author (Castle), and movie-star (ConMan) will be appearing at Denver Comic Con from June 30-July 2, in the beautiful Colorado Convention Center in downtown Denver, Colorado.
Fillion is well-known for his collaborations with Joss Whedon, starting with his role as Captain Malcom Reynolds in 2002’s television series “Firefly,” and the reprisal of the role for the feature film adaption “Serenity,” a recurring role as Caleb on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and as Captain Hammer on Whedon’s Emmy-winning web series, “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.” Fillion also appeared in Whedon’s screen adaption of “Much Ado About Nothing” as Dogberry.
“Nathan Fillion is easily our most-requested guest,” said Denver Comic Con director Christina Angel. “I’m personally thrilled to be hosting him and I’m excited to give fans the experience so many have been asking for.”
Fillion has embraced his role as a pop-culture icon in Alan Tudyk’s “Con Man,” a series available on Comic Con HQ about an actor trying to break out of his type-cast while earning a living on the comic con circuit. Fillion plays Jack Moore, an actor who has a much higher standing in the pop culture community than the main character.
Mainstream pop-culture fans will recognize Fillion for his work on ABC’s “Castle,” a role for which he won four People’s Choice Awards for his portrayal of Richard Castle. The series ran for eight seasons and more than 170 episodes. He’s also had a recurring role on ABC’s “Modern Family” and Netflix’s “Santa Clarita Diet.”
Nathan is a great guest to catch if you’re at the event, and I highly recommend attending Denver Comic Con if you haven’t already made plans to. His panel is sure to be a highlight of the event. Perhaps we’ll even get a Firefly panel, since the lovely and talented Morena Baccarin is also scheduled to attend.
I know I’ll be there.
Possibly wearing a coat of a certain color…
You can currently catch Nathan on Comic-ConHQ in season 2 ConMan, starring alongside his old friend, Alan Tudyk.
See y’all in Denver!
