Nathan Fillion is in for some “sweet, sweet revenge,” as his former Firefly costar Adam Baldwin calls it.
“It was great to be able to turn the tables on him finally. I was playing the subservient Jayne Cobb to his Mal Reynolds for a while and to get a chance to be a character who was a bit over his rank and be able to push him around a bit was just liberating,” he says. “Plus, the opportunity to work with Nathan again — he’s such a loving and giving actor for anybody that he works with and especially for the old [Firefly] crew.”

(She and Castle are still on the outs.) But Beckett he is not. “[Slaughter] uses unorthodox methodology to get results,” teases Baldwin.

There’s that thrilling heroics that he gets to be a part of.” READ FULL STORY
