Reviews & Comments
Feb 28, 2008 - ricarox on Nathan Fillion
Big Damn Hero

Malcolm Reynolds is probably the best anti-hero ever. I'll give you the writing on "Firefly" was great, but try to imagine any other actor filling those tight pants. Wait, that came out wrong.

But Nathan Fillion was born to play this role.
