Nathan Fillion Appears As ‘Mal’ From ‘Firefly’ On ABC’s ‘Castle’ (VIDEO)

Nathan Fillion appears as ‘Mal’ from ‘Firefly’ on ABC’s ‘Castle’.

In the Halloween episode of the alphabet network’s crime drama Castle, star Nathan Fillion dressed up as Mal Reynolds, the character he played on the Fox television series Firefly.

Neither Mal nor Firefley was mentioned by name, but the show was heavily referenced in Castle’s conversation with his daughter Alexis, played by the effervescent and congenial Molly Quinn.

The sci-fi western aired on Fox in 2002 (14 episodes). It spawned a movie, Serenity, which was released in 2005. The franchise was critically acclaimed and garnered a cult-like following but despite all that no one watched the show or the movie.

Fortunately Castle, one of Land of Punt’s favorite shows, is doing slight better in it’s Monday Night time slot on ABC.

Castle, which was recently picked up for a full season, also stars Stana Katic, Jon Huertas, Seamus Dever and Susan Sullivan. It was created Andrew W. Marlowe.
