Nathan Fillion Interviewed at Arrow in the Head. Our Cap'n talks about White Noise 2, how he reads scripts differently after Slither, and who would win in a battle between Mal Reynolds and Battlestar Galactica's Starbuck.

I don't know. "Gigli 2"? I love you Nathan, but that fan loves you more. LOL
From the interview:
With Whedon doing the WONDER WOMAN, has he talked to you about being the male lead?

(Jokingly) Iím telling him I could play WONDER WOMAN! (Laughs) I spent a couple of weeks camped out on his lawn. Iíve heard thatís worked for some actors. Heís got a very bumpy lawn and Iím wearing him down, Iím wearing him down. Nothing positive yet, nothings on paper, but Iím wearing him down.
Wait, what? I haven't been following too closely, but I thought I remembered Joss was no longer involved with Wonder Woman and hadn't been for some months. Is he back in?

I think it's an old interview from a round table press event for White Noise 2. Certainly some of those Nathan quotes seem very familar.
Having just seen a promo for "White Noise 2" on a rented DVD, I was a little confused that they were still shooting it in this interview. I'd say it's a little dated.

Not a big horror film fan, but I thought the promo looked good.
The interview appears to have been done - at least in part - while Nathan was still filming the movie (mention of him arriving with a cut and was that real?) and of course the WW reference, but other parts of it seem to be more current so I'm not sure if they acutally updated it somewhere along the way.

If you're interested in helping bring attention to the movie, there's a current post on digg you can tag - if an article hits popular there thousands of people will end up seeing it - the digg link is here

Yeah, I've remember reading this somewhere. Still, Nathan is fun(ny).

I remember the Sci-Fi Channel said no. I believe their reaction
was, when we got canceled by Fox we approached them to pick
up the show and if Iím not mistaken, their response was ďItís
too sci-fi.

I had not read anything like this before. Too Sci-Fi? WTF ? For
a cable network called the Sci-Fi channel this is really really
sad. I could accept "its too expensive" or even "we don't like
it". But its too Sci-Fi? Can someone shed some light on this
bit o'stoopid?

Ya notice Sci-Fi channel shows WWE Wrestling and reality programming now? It seems to become less "Sci-Fi" everyday . . . except of course for the crappy Sci-Fi Saturday Movie.
They also turned down Angel after The WB cancelled it. Somewhere in a back issue of the SciFi Magazine one of the head honchos explains why the SciFi Channel never went for Angel season 6.
Nathan is great in interviews. But the site is awful. The "latest mistress" feature, with women's body parts, was so .... ewww.
An observation:

The Three Phases of a Soap Take

1. "Did I leave the stove on?"
2. "I did leave the stove on!"
3. "No, I turned the stove off!"


Nathan's Three Phases of Vancouver Friends

1. "I have a lot of friends here."
2. "Here, ... I got ... a few friends."
3. "I got a bunch of friends here."

You can see and hear Nathan doing the famous Soap Take in this interview for "Waitress," mentioned here back in May.

Added: The bit is at about the 3 minute mark (about halfway through).

Thanks for that link, Ying. I've seen him do the Soap Take before, but somehow I missed that interview.
You're welcome, samatwitch. It's also interesting to see Nathan a bit nervous there (as he also was in his one network interview on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, for Waitress). In the convention videos I've seen, he always seems in his element.
I would like to point out on the White Noise: The Light DVD (USA Region 1) extra that includes discussion and scene clips "on who would win in a battle between Mal Reynolds and Battlestar Galactica's Starbuck" The person pointing the gun at Malcolm Reynolds is River not Starbuck. LOL (Laugh out loud)

Loved Nathan's tour of the haunted mental asylum. And I LOL'd watching this one too!
