'Castle': Naked Nathan Fillion!

Castlefillion_lLast night on ABC’s Castle, Nathan Fillion’s crime-novelist got naked and had wild "Top 20" sex with his first ex-wife. In next week’s episode, he has a reason to wear a tux. I don’t know whether to applaud the show’s producers for knowing exactly what fans want* and giving it to us, or smack them. It’s almost like we, the women who find Fillion hard to resist, are being preyed upon. First, they reel us in with Castle’s special relationship with his daughter, then they have him talk about having sex in Paris and Kauai (and at Yankee Stadium and the Westminster dog show), then they put him in formal wear. It’s so right, it almost feels manipulative.

We just need the producers to know that we know what they’re up to…and to please step it up. There is no reason that Castle should be getting fewer viewers than its Bob Saget lead-in, Surviving Suburbia.

*Except the photo editor who took this screen grab: "We only see him from the neck up? No booty? Or low slung towel like Grey’s? I’m a mature woman. I need more than some nice broad shoulders and an adorable smile!"

    sorry. I just don’t see the sexy in this guy, Nathan Fillion. He just doesn’t do it for me. I’ve tried and tried to see the appeal in this show and in Castle, but I just don’t….

  • Kath

    I will not comment per Nathan Fillion’s creepiness policy (on his Myspace blog.)
    Uh…. yeeeeah.

  • Sienna

    He’s much more naked in an episode of Firefly. It’s very nice. He’s got a cute butt…

  • Kevin J

    Oh for crying out loud, go watch Firefly if you need to see his ass.
    Me? I’m holding out for some lingerie or towel shots of Stana Katic because we know she’ll never really be as naked as Capt. Reynolds on American TV.

  • Brody

    Be nice, Lindsey. Nathan’s mom is totally reading this.

  • Cara K

    Ooh, I totally love this show. I loved Nathan Fillion already from Firefly, but I love this show extra because it’s so funny and well written. Love the dialogue! It’s very His Girl Friday-ish.

  • Leslie

    The only reason I’m watching this show is Nathan. He’s very handsome and seems like a fun, and genuinely nice guy. I got his autograph a few years ago at an advance screening in Phoenix before Serenity came out. He’s even better in person! I do miss Capt. Tight Pants though…

  • Beatrice

    The nakedness was good, but the look that he gives Beckett at the end when he tell her just what he wants for saving her life, that is why I love Nathan Fillion.

  • beelkay

    I really like this show, and it’s mostly due to Fillion. I’m not a fan of police dramas (or dramadies), but I do like Nathan Fillion playing a cute novelist full of witty banter.

    So, if I ever come across Nathan Fillion in real life, do I call him “Kitten” or make mention of “Top 10″? I also loved it when his character noticed his own “ruggedly handsomeness” viewed on the tv screen. It’s a pretty lite show, but Nathan makes it worth watching ;)

  • Janice

    I LOVE this show, and I have several friends who do as well! Worried that Saget is beating it out though… not a good sign.

  • Dave

    I guess I’m the only one thought the show seemed a little off this week. My favorite episode remains last week, when we got to learn so much about Detective Beckett. That episode just seemed to gel so much better across the board. Oh, I am among those who are hoping Nathan Fillion has a show that will last more than 13 episodes, he’s a great actor and deserves as much.

  • Angie

    He is just so absolutely hot!!!!!

  • Michelle

    I do think it’s great that a show knows how to really capture an actors appeal…especially one fine Mr. Fillion! I also like how they often put him in blue shirts to make his eyes pop.

  • Ronda

    Well, in one episode of Firefly, there was a full naked behind shot of our beloved Nathan Fillion… Very nice butt!
