Firefly Alums Gina Torres And Nathan Fillion To Reunite In Castle
Since Firefly became such a cult phenomenon, Gina Torres and Nathan Fillion should have had plenty of excuses to run into one another at conventions and the like. However, now the two will meet back up on the small screen, with Torres joining Fillionís starring vehicle, Castle, for a special episode. I hope the two characters will maintain the verbal rapport they had in Joss Whedon's series, but one thingís for certain, Torres will not be playing Fillionís second-in-command.
Torres is scheduled to guest star in an episode of ABCís hit drama that TV Line is speculating will air in February. Her character, Samantha Foster, is tough and navigates the world without fear or mercy, always looking out for herself. As a successful businesswoman in the fashion industry, her skill sets come in handy, but they also allow her to access a devious side. Since Castle is a crime drama, I wonder if she will find herself in trouble with the law.
Since Firefly ended its brief run back in 2003, Torres has enjoyed both big screen and TV roles, including a lengthy stint on 24 and, most recently, Suits, where she also plays a tough character, albeit a fair one. If you are a Castle fan, youíll know this isnít the first time ABC has hooked up a Firefly reunion of sorts on the hit show. Last spring, Adam Baldwin also appeared in the drama as another detective whom Castle was paired up with to solve a case. That was a winning episode, and hereís hoping that when Torres appears in the episode ďReality Star Struck,Ē her role will be able to bring the same fanboy glee out of us.
ABCís Castle airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET.
