Firefly Star and Producer Reuniting To Drive. Cinescape says that Tim Minear saved Fillion from "Bruce Campbell rejected direct to video trash"

So, do you think they'll give Fillion any leeway?
I think the writer's holding back on his feelings about "White Noise 2" a bit. *g*

And I can't see Tim holding out for Nathan and not utilizing his talents to the fullest extent.
Cannonball Run, anyone? I'll be pulling for this 100% because of Nathan, but if it was anyone else, I wouldn't be giving the show a passing glance...
I'll call the author on something here - White Noise The Light is a theatre release job.

And, ya know, actors take what jobs they can get. I don't think any of the Firefly cast are fighting with Speilberg on the phone each day, because that isn't how things work unless you're - like - a huge, proven draw for crowds in movies.

As for Drive utilising Nate's talents - I have a strong feeling his character might just be a tad cranky and funny. Which reminds me of another character in another show.
Is it Ted Danson in 'Becker' ?
gossi - I agree with you. :) Unless you're an "A" star commanding paychecks in the millions, it's rare that you're going to turn down a decent paying lead role in a film being released through a major studio. I don't have a problem with Nathan taking the role - I was just joking that it seems the author of the article does, because it's obvious he didn't like the first one.
zengrrl, sorry, I was talkin' about the article, not ye good self.

Saje - close!
I gotta say, I fail to see the basis for a Cannonball Run comparison beyond its very core of both involving automobiles. Tim Minear does not strike me as the type of person to lend himself to such material.

I doubt Bruce Campbell was considered for this, if you want to turn it around a little.

In the comments? Somebody compared Nathan to Kyle MacLachlan? Is there a dyslexia-type thing that applies to just seeing and hearing, rather than even reading?
Kyle MacLachlan? I dunno, Nathan's a bit too old now, but I could see him making a good Paul Atreides in a Dune remake when he was younger...
Cannonball Run, anyone? I'll be pulling for this 100% because of Nathan, but if it was anyone else, I wouldn't be giving the show a passing glance...
What are you talking about? Cannonball Run is a high mark in American cinema. ;)

Nathan's already worked with The 'Berg; he's so over that.

I've been saying for a while now that Nathan is one role away from stardom. I'm hoping Drive is it. And I'll say to doubters of the awesomeness of this show: give it a chance. The eight minute clip I saw at B3 blew me away, and I'm not a girl usually into the whole "car-race-intrigue" thing. Even if Tim and Nathan weren't involved, I'd watch Drive based on the clip I saw.
You know, coming this march april, I will be really bitter about not having access to cable :S
Drive is going to be on Fox, not cable, right?
newcj, some people (not me for the most part, fortunately) need cable to get any reception at all, even the free channels.
Yeah... in my semi-basement apartment, I just have the tv(not even any antenaes... ) and all I get is the CBC.... which is ok.. but I dont get the free channels. And in Canada, Fox wouldn't be free ,but chances are the show Drive would be broadcasted on CTV or Global.
Or *cough* bittorrent (not that I publicly condone illegal activity you understand ;).
hehe... um, I have a 2GB limit net connection at home, b/c I wanted the cheapest possible broadband that I could tolerate.
"...but chances are the show Drive would be broadcasted on CTV or Global."

Kurya, if not, maybe I could record it and we could have a showing at a shindig you'll organize (;-) in March/April??
hehehe OMG, you da best, coolpeace hehe! Good idea.
I hope this is a good series. I'd love to see Nathan in anything again.
