Castle's Nathan Fillion Wants More Life to Live!



Gotta love a guy who wants to pay homage to his old stomping grounds. Castle star Nathan Fillion opened up to The Hollywood Reporter on how he would love to appear on the FOX smash hit Glee and also discussed making another appearance on One Life to Live.

THR: Who would you play on Glee?

Fillion: A scout, some kind of Broadway scout. I'd be very mean and I wouldn't sing. I wouldn't sing until the very, very end and only like a couple of notes. I would also love to go back to One Life to Live. They just got a new Joey, the character I played, so I would love to go back and just do a walk-on where Joey's in the middle of something super serious, [acts out bumping into him] and says, "Oh, hey. Sorry," and then just keep waking. I would love to do that.

THR: Not even address what's going on?

Fillion: Not even say anything, just an "Excuse me." And then him go, "Wait, was that? No ..." I always think those are hoots. I heard recently that One Life to Live did a little nod to Castle. One of the characters was being interrogated by my uncle Bo Buchanan and he said, "No, no! This isn't Traffic. I know how this goes, I watch Castle!" I like that kind of stuff.

YES YES YES...LOVE this idea. They did this sort of thing with a few past characters during the live week several years ago. I think it's very funny and a great wink to the past. DO IT NOW!

I love Nathan for many reasons but the fact that he still says Uncle Bo rather than Bob Woods is near the top of the list. By the by, when he was on The View he said it was Bob Woods who told him not to re-sign but to go off and try something new.

There are lots of things to like about Castle in addition to Nathan's charm and good looks, there is a good cast (including former GHer Seamus Dever, Dr. Ian Devlin) who seem to genuinely like each other, good stories, good guest actors, and it's a bonus if you happen to be a fan of mystery novels.

I keep hoping that Strasser gets cast as an old friend of Castle's mom who deflowered a 17-18 year old Castle back in the day.
Anything that gets NF and RS in scenes together would just be perfect.
And my fanboying for NF can't possibly grow anymore so he really needs to stop being so awesome.

He is so irritating. Glad I have never seen him on OLTL. Not that OLTL was ever my soap.

Love NF!! I'd like to see a OLTL walk-on, but I'd love to see either RS or ES guest on Castle...that'd be great Smile

The OLTL writers aren't writing Dorian as having a life. I'd love for RS to make a guest spot on Castle doing something fun! RS and NF are great together.

I really wish he could do double time on both shows, but that'll never happen. *sigh*

DarylE, his name, Nathaniel Marston wasn't in the credits but I thought so too.

Yep that was NM - the name was in the closing credits but it was a blink and you missed it kind of thing.
