Actor Nathan Fillion is one of those actors who makes everything he touches awesome. He gave us the creeps as the evil preacher Caleb in the last epic season of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. He gave Han Solo a (parsec) run for his money as one of the hottest, most sarcastic heartthrobs in the galaxy as Captain Malcolm Reynolds on Firefly and Serenity. He made us laugh as the egostical and dubious superhero Captain Hammer in Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.
He won our admiration when he urged his legions of Twitter followers to vote in the Star Wars Fan Movie Challenge.
And now, most recently, Fillion snuck in a Star Wars reference into his new detective show Castle. Sure the writers wrote the dialog, but Fillion talking about Jedi skills is full of awesome.
Novelist Richard Castle and Detective Kate Beckett have a discussion about how long she dated her ex boyfriend who just so happens to be an F.B.I. agent on the current case.
Beckett: “Six months.”
Castle: “Six months, what?
Beckett: “We dated for six months.”
Castle: “I didn’t ask.”
Beckett: “Yeah, I know. You were not asking very loudly.”
Castle: “I know, I’m like a Jedi like that.”
