A visit to the White Noise 2 set and a chat with Nathan Fillion. As ever he's on top form with numerous quotes to chuckle over. And there's the first ever pic from the movie to look at too.

it looked like a French door


Well, I am interested in being explained what the hell a "French door" is (in other terms than "the doors you see everyday since you live in france, Le Comité" ;) ).
NF: I'm counting on it. I am counting on every "Serenity" fan, and every "Firefly" fan, and every "Buffy" fan, and every "Slither" fan, I am counting on them to see this movie. If this movie fails it is their fault. I'm glad you let me get that clear. I finally had a voice.


The dude has seriously been hanging with Joss way to much. What's next, he wont be able to get a date and that will be the fans fault? :)

Aint that just the way - we get blamed for everything. :P
I just hope people realise he is joking. Well, I presume. ;)
Darnit, I'm going to have to see White Noise 2. Nathan had to be all charming in this interview and now I feel compelled.
*sigh* It's tough being a flan. ;)
"I'll trade you a Jane for two number 6's". lol.
Le Comite in the UK (and apparently Canada) we sometimes call the large glass doors that often lead from a house to the patio in the back garden 'French doors'. We also call them patio doors. Guess which one makes more sense to me ? ;).

(more generally i think it's any glass double doors that open in the middle)

There he goes making with the funny. I'm glad he finally pointed out that any movies of his that fail are the Buffy/Angel/Firefly fans fault. He means you guys, obviously. I hate all those shows.

(and his dive instructor's advice was hilarious/scary/sensible/selfish - delete as applicable ;)
RT: So he's faced with his ability to use his power for good?
NF: Or awesome. Good or awesome, those are his choices.


Was that a Strong Bad reference? Cause if so, awesome.
Patio doors generally slide, one over the other. French doors open in the middle but are not always glass although they may have a lot of glass.
At least in Canada.
At least in my home.
I'm glad Nathan is getting so much work but I had to force myself to see Slither. This one doesn't sound like my cup of tea either.

Since Joss is a big Homestar Runner fan and obviously pretty close with Nathan then I reckon it's a good bet that it was a Strong Bad reference. Which is definitely awesome :)
I'm so not into horror films at all, but I'll probably be going to see this anyway. I've never religiously gone to see all of an actor's movies, but I think that's going to happen for me with Nathan. Not that I regret it, as, seriously, Slither was totally awesome.
And what's that he mentioned about an upcoming romantic comedy? It would be quite a change to see Nathan play an onscreen romance that isn't buried under layers of denial and angst. (Although I'm always ready to see some more angsty Mal/Inara romance anytime Universal feels like greenlighting a Serenity sequel!)
I didn't go to Slither because I don't like bloody movies. Or scary movies. Especially scary bloody movies. Could someone do a "squeamish fan cut" of the movie that would only have Nathan and nothing yucky?

Nope. The whole thing was amazingly, wonderfully disgusting. And funny. Very funny. Well maybe you could see the part where he smacks a kid in the beginning. That was funny, and pretty ungross.

Back on topic, is anyone else bothered that they spelled it Jane instead of Jayne? Or possibly I'm missing a step. I hope I'm missing a step.

Adam Baldwin will be totally stoked to know that one Jayne gets you two Number Sixes. In your face! ;-)

You know, my job changes very little because I've found that the more you try to be funny, the less funny you become. When I watch TV I can tell when someone is punching the joke and telling me when to laugh (I'll decide when to laugh, thank you very much), or I can tell when someone is just being in a situation or being under some circumstances that make me laugh, like I'm glad that that's not me.

This is so true! I can't stand it when sitcom-y people are so big and so broad and so desperate for you to laugh *coughJoeycough*. Our Nathan is a very insightful actor; no wonder he succeeds so well at being "six foot tall and funny." Well, OK, the six foot tall success comes from genes, but you see what I'm saying. ;-)

Also, note to self: never, ever go diving with Nathan Fillion. ;-)

ETA: JCapra, actually, there are a lot of typos in this article, and the Katee Sackhoff interview from a few days ago, too. I kind of just decided to ignore it since there was so much Nathany goodness to concentrate on, but, yeah, now that you bring it up, they should certainly know it's "Jayne." (BTW, are you related to either Frank Capra the director, or to the Francis Capra on Veronica Mars? :-))

He's always such a delight to read. The man consistently gives great interviews without being either too revealing or repetitious, and he's got that gift for making you yearn to get him alone (no, not for that reason) (well, okay ... maybe slightly for that reason, but mostly for some deliciously pithy and intelligent one-on-one conversation, for god's sake, it is possible to love a man for his mind)... umm, did I just type that out loud?

I'm one of those people who didn't see the first White Noise but who's definitely planning to catch the sequel because he's in it. Being assured the parts in which he is prominently featured won't suck, odds are looking good I'll come away happy. Big plus -- no slugs!
prairieharpie> The romantic comedy was mentioned here before.
Thanks, Kiddo. Guess I missed that posting somehow.

Very true, but they are actually called ‘French doors’ because, mon dieu, that’s where the charming, accomplished Gallic lover escapes when Madam’s husband comes home unexpectedly early in the afternoon.

Much more stylish than climbing through the window or hiding in the closet, which is something only Brits or Americans would do.

I think. I have no first hand knowledge of such goings on, I hasten to add.
..there are a lot of typos in this article, and the Katee Sackhoff interview from a few days ago, too.


No joke. I am certainly happy to get another article on Nathan (and Katee too!) but are these guys are getting paid to write?
Not just the typos, but the interview bites seem poorly structured and out of context. It's really jarring. I hate to criticize other's work, it's just making me think I need to look into some freelance writing. Apparently anyone can do it.
Oh, and now I am even more geeked to see this film. I love his take on what makes comedy work. I realize he's being ironic, but he is so not a "niche" actor!
Hey, I just noticed the NF pictures that go with this article (I was too busy looking at the Katee Sackhoff pics before, heh). Any Chinese speakers/readers here? In the picture with the two interviewers, Nathan is wearing a T-shirt with a picture that, I swear, looks like a firefly (the bug, not the cargo ship) and definitely looks like Chinese characters over it. Anybody know what that says? Is it a Firefly shout-out? *tries to control "fanboy finding hidden meaning"-related shortness-of-breath* ;-)
