Castle: Fans Get Rare Treat From Nathan Fillion

Fans do not have to mourn the absence of Nathan Fillion in the show Castle anymore. ABC took all the fans by surprise when they abruptly canceled the show. The show follows the adventures of mystery novelist Richard Castle and Kate Beckett, an NYPD homicide detective.

Fans will soon see Nathan Fillion in a new role, embracing the screens again. He will be a guest star on Brooklyn Nine-Nine on Fox, playing the role of Mark Devereaux. Fillion will appear on the episode titled Serve & Protect.

Nathan Fillion As Mark Devereaux In Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Mark Devereaux will be seen helping Jake (Andy Samberg) and Rosa (Stephanie Beatriz) solve a crime on Serve & Protect set. Also making an appearance will be Greg Germann playing the role of Gary Lurmax, an executive producer of S&P. Germann is seen in famous projects like Ally McBeal and Once Upon a Time.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is an American police sitcom with the premise of New York City Police Department in Brooklyn. Last year, the show was renewed for a fourth season. The show has been nominated for GLAAD Media Awards for Outstanding Comedy Series category.

Fillion In Modern Family

Nathan Fillion seems to be ruling the guest star segment. Other than Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the actor will be also seen in The Modern Family. Seeing him back on screens will be a welcome change. He plays the role of a weatherman Rainer Shine.

In an interesting twist, Rainer Shine will be seen hitting on Phil Dunphy’s oldest daughter. Ty Burrell’s character is seen in a fix when the weatherman he adores starts wooing his daughter (Sarah Hyland). Fillion speaks about his guest role in The Modern Family, “He (Phil) is shocked and horrified but the reality is, he kind of set us up accidentally. He hates it but it’s also all his fault,” reports The NY Post.

Phil Dunphy is in a fix as he sees Shine and Hayley kissing on the porch. By the end of the episode, Phil accepts the fact that his daughter is old enough to choose whoever she wants to date. He comes to peace about the fact that Rainer Shine (Fillion) is going to be romantically linked with his daughter.

Nathan Fillion is ecstatic to join the Modern Family crew. He says, “It’s kind of a niche for me to play characters who are vain but don’t know that they’re vain. It’s something I’m practiced at.” The 45-year-old actor also says that a character as stupid (as he is going to play) makes people laugh. Fillion adds, “He’s kind, he’s nice, he’s sort of charming, but he’s just so cheesy and so flawed.”
