Nathan Fillion is 'Super': Hey, you don't need to tell us!

Here at EW we can’t get enough of Nathan Fillion, star of Castle, and one of the nicest people ever to pop into our offices to just say hi (well, okay, to just say hi and pimp his show). Another big Fillion fan is writer-director James Gunn who cast the actor in his wildly underappreciated gorefest Slither and in the fantastic debut edition of his NSFW web series PG Porn (see video after the jump).

It now turns out that Gunn has recruited Fillion for his new movie, Super, a comedic take on the superhero film. The actor joins Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Liv Tyler, and Kevin Bacon. In addition, Gunn has cast Linda Cardellini, star of the also wildly underappreciated Grandma’s Boy (her character’s drunken, lewd, rendition of “Push It” is one of the marvels of the modern age — or the age of great dumb comedies anyhoo).

Any other big fans of Slither—or Grandma’s Boy—out there? And is there anyone who has had their, uh, fill of Fillion (surely not!).

    I don’t think it’s possible to EVER get enough of Nathan Fillion, ever!

      Well actually you can. Yesterday I was bored, watched slither and then drop by bestbuy to pick up halo odst and played through it in one sitting (about 5 hours or so) and then watched the new episode of castle. After that i went too bed with just too much nate fillion. Freaks me out a little bit.
      Suffice to say i dont feel the need to see more nathan for the rest of the week. And yes I’m a guy.

    Nathan Fillion, oh I could watch him in ANYTHING! (Thankfully Castle is wonderful) so I’ll have to check this movie out.

  • strickens_girl

    I love Nathan Fillion. I couldn’t watch “Slither” – I don’t do gorefest movies, but I adore “Waitress” and anything Firefly related.

  • Leslie

    It’s definitely NOT possible to get your fill of Fillion. I heart him and will watch him in anything!

    • Madd

      He was criminally underused in Desperate Housewives. And he was the only reason I watched Cars.

      • Lady Pirate

        Do you mean “Drive”? He wasn’t in Disney-Pixar’s Cars.

  • Briana

    He is, simply put, one of the best actors ever!

  • Igknorr

    Firefly, Slithers, Trucker and Castle. He’s the best and so Nathan is on my island and my husband approves!

  • Madd

    HUGE fan of Grandma’s Boy. I’ve loved LInda Cardellini since F&G.

  • Dom Kong III

    I like Grandma’s Boy. It has a scuzzy charm.

  • Heather

    Love him. Loved Slither. And anything else he’s been in. ;)

  • Aunt Pearl

    Three words: Captain Malcolm Reynolds!!!

    • LAJackie

      Two words. Captain Tightpants!!!

      • Glitterbat

  • Liz

    LOVE FILLION! SO hot!!

    LOVED slither and not only because of him, it was great!

  • Anita

    I thought Slither was hilarious and I love Nathan Fillion :)

  • ML

    He was sorely underused in LOST too… sigh…

    • AshleyBrooke

      When was he in LOST? That’s not him if you’re referring to the character of Ethan.

      • AshleyBrooke

        Oh nevermind, I see he was in one episode.

      • Heat

        He played Kate’s husband.

  • Bill

    He is, simply put, an overrated actor! The new film will likely bomb at the boxoffice.

    • amanda

      how dare you, sir!?
