9NATHAN FILLION – MAL REYNOLDS
Despite its short run, Firefly has a cult status and Captain Reynolds often finds himself among the best TV characters ever created. Captain Mal Reynolds was Nathan Fillion’s first starring role and it, indeed, made him a star.
Fillion’s natural charisma and likability no doubt contributed a great deal to the character’s popularity.
Mr. Likeable had no difficulties finding acting gigs after Firefly’s wholly unmerited cancelation. He’s done eight seasons of Castle, a comedy web series Con Men with Firefly co-star Alan Tudyk, and had various cameos on both the small and big screen. At the moment, you can catch Fillion on ABC’s The Rookie where he stars as the oldest rookie on the police force. Fillion is charming and funny as ever and the show itself is an enjoyable watch.
