Nathan Fillion, while having a large cult fanbase and steady work, hasn’t had the greatest run of luck: three television shows in which he has starred (Two Guys and a Girl, Drive, Firefly) were cancelled, his current show (Castle) is constantly rumored to be in jeopardy, and despite a large fan push (see here), he was passed over for the role of Green Lantern by not only a former co-star, but one who already has a superhero franchise growing.
Evidently not wanting to be the proverbial kid on the playground who curls into a ball when getting bullied, however, Fillion recently revealed in an interview with IFC that he is still pushing for a superhero franchise – a redo of The Greatest American Hero.
Fillion has already had contact with both original series stars William Katt and Robert Culp, and it's a strange project to say the least-- the theme song is probably more well known than the show these days. It's also unclear whether or not he's gunning for a TV show remake or a feature film. But you have to admire the guy's drive, if not feel sorry for him a little bit. After all, this is apparently his dream job.
