Nathan Fillion: Ask him a question, save 'Castle'

Nathanfillion_l With the fate of Nathan Fillion’s Castle still listed as "Could go either way" on Ausiello’s Fall TV cheat sheet (UPDATE: It’s "Now a safe bet"), Fillion is taking to the phones on Friday to drum up press for the show’s May 11 season finale (ABC, 10 p.m. ET). Because he is one of the 50 actors we’ve said we’d watch in anything, we’re somewhat obligated to accept the call. We, however, are also happy to do so because Castle — which features Fillion as the famous, smartass crime novelist shadowing the NYPD homicide detective, Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), who serves as the muse for his next book — is an enjoyable hour of television.

So here’s the plan: You post your questions for Fillion (preferably Castle-related) by 10 a.m. ET Friday. We ask him the best ones that fit into our allotted eight minutes. You come back for his answers on Monday a.m. and tune into Castle Monday night. (ABC renews the show when it announces its fall schedule on May 19, and everybody’s happy.) If you need inspiration, on this week’s episode we found out that Beckett belongs to Castle’s fansite, once waited in line for an hour to get him to sign a book, and used his novels to get through her mother’s death. We also learned that while Castle doesn’t know who his father is, he is aware that he’s up against CSI: Miami (nice shot at detectives obsessed with their sunglasses).

Oh, and apparently, he gets shot next week.

Let’s make it happen, people.

    First of all, love the show. Just wondering what detective shows you enjoyed in your younger years?
    Save “Castle”!!!

  • Amy

    I always believe that slutty guys get “blessed” with good daughters one day so they can imagine a boy looking at their little girl the way the man-whore looks at his pick-ups. Think Castle will ever really reconcile those two distinct parts of his life? Will he one day catch some boy looking at Alexis the same way Castle looks at some women?

  • Joann

    I love this show! Every one in the cast is great. My question for Nathan — Are the writers teasing with us, or is there tremendous chemistry between Beckett & Castle and when will that chemisty erupt?

  • Amy

    I think the suave British (?) jewel thief wil end up being Castle’s dad. What do you think?

  • weepingangel

    Did you audition for the role of Richard Castle, or were you asked specifically to play the part?

  • Elaine

    What real life mystery authors did read/study/meet to get ready for the amazing role of Castle?

  • Jesse Jackson

    I love the relationship between Castle and his daughter. Do we get more interaction in the next few episodes?

  • Shelly Bell

    Is there a serious side to Rick Castle? What brings it out?

  • David

    I wouldn’t call “Castle” one of the most finely crafted shows on TV but it is tremendously entertaining and Nathan Fillion is awesome. Another season is certainly warranted.

  • Kelli W.

    If you could take one prop from Firefly and incorporate it into a Castle episode, what would it be and why?

  • Coyote

    No question; just a salute to one of your character’s lines this week:
    “5 by 5.” Thanks!

  • jocelyn

    Love this show!

  • Julie

    I would like to second Joann’s question – is there a plan to explore the chemistry between Beckett and Castle in the near future? I am worried that if it is drawn on for too long it may become too late to develop a romantic relationship between these two characters. I think that the supporting characters do not play strong enough roles for the show to survive a late-blooming relationship.

  • Jen

    I was absolutely blown away by the cohesiveness of the cast from the very first minute of the pilot. Have any of you worked together in the past? You’re gelled like a 3 year old cast already. It’s astonishing.

    Hey Nathan! Enjoy all your work. You seem to be having a lot of fun on this show. How much involvement do you have in the development and personality of your character?
