Tag: Castle (71-80 of 94)
For the current issue of Entertainment Weekly, Castle star Nathan Fillion submitted to a round of Stupid Questions. Sample: Speaking about you, Joss Whedon once told EW, “I honestly believe he’s Harrison Ford, if given a shot.” What then, if I may ask, is in that shot glass? Answer: ”I’m more of a girl shot — if it has the name of a soda pop or a slippery body part, that’s more of a shot for me.”
Due to space, we were unable to use our favorite of Fillion’s responses. Enjoy it below. Tune in tonight for the conclusion of the two-part “Castle event” (ABC, 10 p.m. EST). There’s still a serial killer on the loose.
NATHAN FILLION: You know, you never know who’s going to break into your home when you have a lightsaber handy… I had a party one night, and I was escorting the last of my guests to her car, and I looked down the street, and about four or five houses down, somebody was outside whippin’ a lightsaber around, a purple one. I said, Ohmygod, this is perfect. So I ran back into my house, got my lightsaber, it’s blue, hid it behind my back, and casually walked down the street. This kid, I’d put him in, like, his early 20s, sees me, and tries to act cool playing with the lightsaber. I said, “Hey, how you doin’?” He’s like, “Oh, hey. Good, good.” I said, “Oh, matter of fact, I’ve been looking for you.” [Lightsaber noise] And I whip out my lightsaber, and he doesn’t even laugh. I’m like, “Man, I walked down the whole block for this bit. It’s funnier than that.” I did scare the crap out of a couple that was standing on the sidewalk chatting right there. Then it was worth it.
Castle has a lot to live up to after the way ABC has been promoting the two-part “event” that finds Beckett, Castle, and Federal Agent Jordan Shaw (guest star Dana Delany) chasing a serial killer who’s obsessed with Nikki Heat. Last night, Part 1 did.
Just as Castle got word that Heat Wave had been optioned for a film — James McAvoy would make a great Kevin Ryan — Beckett got a phone call from a man reporting a murder. One that he’d committed. They traced the call to Grand Central Station, where they found a dead man in a phone booth. Five shots to the chest. The bullets had letters pressed into them. Castle thought they spelled “Kinki,” but Beckett reordered them to “Nikki.” Another call: The man wanted Nikki to know the next part of his message was waiting at the Central Park Carousel. Another four slugs spelling “Will.” Enter the Feds led by Delany, looking younger than she gets to on Desperate Housewives. Castle was starstruck — she’s good at her job and has cool toys that he naturally wants to touch. Watching Beckett get jealous over losing Castle’s professional interest brought humor to the episode, as did everyone finding out that Nikki and the writer tailing her in Heat Wave have sex in Chapter 11. (Note to self: Next time I’m in the book store, find Heat Wave and skim Chapter 11.) READ FULL STORY »
The best in show bracket breakdown on Hulu has entered its second week with a few surprises: Community beat Glee, Royal Pains spanked Grey’s Anatomy, and Chuck crushed Dollhouse. Which brings us to the most interesting face-off in round two: Bones vs. Castle. Fight!
On Bones, we have cheeky sublimated sexual chemistry:
And on Castle…we have cheeky sublimated sexual chemistry: READ FULL STORY »
I’m hopping on the Castle train. Make room!
I hadn’t been avoiding it on purpose; it just fell through the TV cracks. For that, I’m slightly ashamed. Thankfully, I don’t think I’m the only one late to the party. The last new episode attracted more than 10 million viewers, a commendable increase from the last few recent episodes. The cause? Not sure. But my non-scientific answer is Nathan Fillion.
”But Sandra,” you say, ”he’s been on Castle since the beginning.” Right you are, and we’ve always loved him here on PopWatch. But quite honestly, I’m experiencing a Nathan Fillion revival. Gone are the days I TV crushed on Johnny Donnelly (Fillion’s character on Two Guys a Girl and a Pizza Place), and I just stopped scribbling ”I <3 Captain Hammer” in my spiral notebook at EW.com meetings. Now, it’s all about Richard Castle. Fillion’s portrayal of a famous mystery novelist-turned-crime-solver is equal parts humor, adorable and charm. And my reaction is all parts love. It also helps that Fillion’s Twitter (@NathanFillion) keeps me entertained in between new episodes (as do Ausiello SPOILERS).
I have a long weekend of marathon-ing ahead of me before the new episode on Monday (check out a preview below), but in the meantime, tell me which underappreciated star is on your Must List this week. Is someone killing it on TV without proper kudos? What other books/movies/web sites are you loving?
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).

We here at Style Hunter gave you the dish on the lipstick Kate Beckett (Stana Katic, left) wears on ABC’s Castle, but many of you Beckett fans also wanted to know about the sleek black trench coat she’s worn on a few episodes this season.
For the answer, we went straight to the source — Castle‘s costume designer, Salvador Perez — but sorry style seekers, Perez informed us that Beckett’s Karen Millen jacket is from a past season and no longer available.
If you’re looking for a similar style, you might want to try Marc by Marc Jacob’s fine twill trench coat (nordstrom.com; $249), Juicy Couture’s bow-shoulder trench (urbanminx.com; $379) or if you really dig the buttons, go for this Anne Klein number (dillards.com; $129).
