They are two best friends, Firefly alum, and probably the only two guys that can get both nerdy boys and girls to drop their underoos with burning man desire. They are Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion. These two well known stars of TV and film have been around the Convention circuit offering their stories, egos, and devilishly handsome looks to elated fans. Now they’re now using their experience with cons to transform the weird and wonderful world of conventions into a web series. It’s called Con Man and will be written, directed and star Tudyk with Fillion co-starring as well as producing.
The series focuses on the actors’ experiences after their show’s cancellation, as they make their way into the convention circuit. As Tudyk explains in the video below, outsiders often think that science fiction fans are the weirdest part about a convention when, in truth, the strangest characters can be found behind the scenes.
Already they have their Firefly cast members Sean Maher and Gina Torres along for the ride as well as James Gunn, Seth Green, Felicia Day and Amy Acker, just to start. (more…)

The moderator called him “Canada’s favorite son,” but really Nathan Fillion was treated more unto a god at the National Fan Expo in Toronto Saturday. The people offered him tributes, words of praise and thanks, and in return he awarded the lucky few (hundreds) who were able to attend his early morning Q&A with more than several very funny anecdotes about the enduring appeal of Firefly, his veteran hit detective series Castle, and his admiration for one Benedict Cumberbatch.

But now Fillion is saying that we don’t know what the hell we’re talking about. (more…)
Since the moment James Gunn signed on to Guardians of the Galaxy, folks have wondered if his good friend and regular collaborator Nathan Fillion might find his way into the film. Fillion, of course, has a busy day job as the lead in ABC’s detective series Castle, so anything larger than a cameo in GOTG was unlikely. Wish granted? Rumors have been afoot in the last couple of days that Fillion will have a small but large part to play in the upcoming Marvel Studios film, but if this latest rumor is true, while the role will be small, though not as important to the as previously believed, it will still be quite memorable.
