Geek God Nathan Fillion Graces EW Cover
  |  @   |  

Let’s face it, Nathan Fillion is a geek god and we all kneel before him… now if only the world would realize how awesome he is!

Luckily, Entertainment Weekly at least knows we want more of the Firefly actor, as the magazine has acknowledged his Geek God status and made Fillion its cover guy for its March 25, 2011 issue, which hits stands tomorrow.

Fillion, who’s currently starring in the ABC television series Castle, graces the cover wearing a Green Lantern t-shirt, a nod surely to the days when the actor was widely rumored for the role of Hal Jordan in the upcoming Green Lantern file (a role that eventually went to Ryan Reynolds), as well as to the awesome fan-made trailer that actually places Fillion in the role.

In EW’s interview with Fillon, the actor talks about working with Joss Whedon; his admiring fans; his role on Castle, and staying true to his inner-Geek. Plus, he had a little something to say about being pigeonholed as his Firefly character, Captain Malcolm Reynolds.

Fillion is more polite than most””with fans, costars, journalists””because he occupies a special place in Hollywood. It started back in 2002, when, thanks to a few key roles from the mind of Joss Whedon””Capt. Mal Reynolds in Firefly and its big-screen adaptation, Serenity; an evil preacher in Buffy the Vampire Slayer; and a vain superhero in Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog””Fillion began receiving A-list treatment from sci-fi fans, even if he wasn’t quite an A-lister himself. And he was more than happy to play to that audience. “I think of Galaxy Quest and the plight of those pigeonholed actors who don’t do anything except for conventions,” he says. “To be pigeonholed as a Malcolm Reynolds? Uh, dream. Winning.”

  1. Uhm, I have to point out, he’s wearing a GL shirt because he does the voice of Hal in the new animated feature Emerald Knights.

  2. The shirt is probably just as likelihood a nod to the fact that he does play Hal Jordan, albeit the voice of, in the animated Green Lantern: Emerald Knights movie coming out.
