Nathan Fillion

Nathan Fillion is this dude's all-time favorite Man Crush. One time, I went to Comic-Con, and we were in the same theater for a screening of THE WORLD'S END and when I saw him I freaked the fuck out. Seriously, I was like shaking and everything. I didn't say anything, because it was a theater full of nerds and everyone was freaking out too. I just sat in my seat and craned my neck to look at him—he was a few rows back. I had better seats, but he's had a better career, so I think we're even.

 

If you've been on the Internet for longer than ten minutes, you're familiar with the travesty that was the cancelation of Firefly. (If you are spending time on the internet, please spend most of it on Dudefest.com.) If you've ever been on The Twitter, you should know that Nathan Fillion is hilarious on his twitter account, and he interacts with his fans like a goddamn boss. He seems like a down-to-earth guy that would really like to hang out with me and we could have a few beers and talk about that time that we both went to see the same movie at a press screening at Comic-Con because we're both really important and I wouldn't make a fool of myself and he'd let me try on his Mal Reynolds browncoat and it would fit me perfectly and then we'd decide that we should do that again every month and he'd let me keep the coat and I'd tell all my friends and I would be happy forever and I would never wake up from that special dream...

 

Sorry about that.

 

The first thing you'd probably recognize my boy Nate from is SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, in which he plays the other Private Ryan (the one that's apparently not worth saving). That was about it for a while, save for some other crap I've never seen, like DRACULA 2000. Which, actually, sounds hilarious, so keep an eye out for the Dudefest review of DRACULA 2000.

 

He got his real break in soap opera acting, appearing on One Life to Live for three years and earning himself a Daytime Emmy nomination. After his stint in daytime TV, he eventually moved to primetime, starring in the last three seasons of Two Guys and a Girl (which starred Ryan Reynolds, a name I just accidentally mistyped as Malcolm Reynolds about six times). Since nobody but my mom remembers Two Guys, a Girl, and a Pizza Place (as it was originally titled), that part of his career is irrelevant. Soon after TGaGaaPP (as it was known by its adoring fan) was canceled, Fillion landed the role of Captain Malcolm Reynolds in Firefly, undoubtedly the best character in television history, ever. For his efforts in all 14 episodes of the show, he won the most coveted award in acting: the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films, USA's Cinescape Genre Face of the Future – Male. He was also awarded the SyFy Genre Award for Best Actor/Television, a mere three years after the show was ruthlessly and unfairly canceled.

 

Following Firefly, he reprised the role (which he has also said is his favorite, probably just to continue appeasing Firefly fans to keep sending him money) in SERENITY, a film adaptation of a failed sci-fi show that failed to revive the program.

 

These days, you can find him back in TV my mom watches, if she's still watching old episodes of Desperate Housewives (and that one episode of Lost) in between new episodes of Castle. He also had a cameo appearance in a season 5 episode of Community, which anyone with half a brain would agree was the all time greatest episode of the series, hands down (just because he was in it; the rest of the episode actually kind of sucked). Also, turns out he's a hell of a voice actor, playing various roles in some of the Halo sequels and killing it as Hal Jordan in some of the Justice League movies. He definitely should have been cast as Hal Jordan in the GREEN LANTERN, but I've come to terms with the fact that he was overlooked (possibly by some producer that made the same mistake I did with Malcolm/Ryan Reynolds) because of how full of complete garbage that movie was.

 

Don't forget that homeboy Nate can sing, and that the hammer is his penis.

Pat Holland wasn't clever enough to post a joke at the end of this article. Don't try to email him.

When I saw this I thought, is it weird that I don't know who that is? Maybe I'll start reading it and finally recognize him. Well I got all the way to the end and I have no fucking clue who this guy is.
