Media Madness Monday – Nathan Fillion

Image result for nathan fillionIt is super cold.  Husband is gone to do something, kiddo is in her room gaming, puppo wrapped up in a blanket.  Here I am bundled up in a blanket, watching one of my favorite shows, Castle.  The nerd in me has a HUGE crush on Nathan Fillion, ever since 2 Guys, a Girl, and a Pizza Place when he played Johnny.  There is just something so adorable about him.

You are probably wondering why I am including Nathan Fillion in a title of a post called “Media Madness Monday” .  It is because he was in my favorite TV shows and movies that involved books.  In Castle, he plays Richard Castle, a mystery writer who is friends with fellow authors such as James Patterson, and others whom he gets ideas on solving murders that happen in the show that he would be confused about.  He is partnered with Kate Beckett, an NYPD detective, whom he bases his Nikki Heat series (yes, they actually do sell those books, under Richard Castle, check it out . . . seriously).  There is a lot of flirting back and forth between the two characters, until they finally get together after a few seasons, and . . . well, I won’t tell you the rest.

Another reason why I absolutely adore him is his role in Much Ado About Nothing, where he plays Dogberry.  Have you ever seen this rendition?  It is black and white, and is in true William Shakespeare language.  The movie is up there with my Midsummer Nights Dream (no, not the one with Michelle Pfeiffer).

Outside of the book realm, he plays my favorite captain, Captain Malcolm in Firefly.  Unfortunately it was cancelled after the first season.  Which is surprising since it has a lot of followers, as well as spinoffs.

What is your favorite Nathan Fillion character?  Or maybe favorite murder mystery stories? Any recommendations for me to try?
