Nathan Fillion Guest Starring on Web Series The Guild!
Nathan Fillion’s (Castle) latest foray into geekdom will soon be available for our viewing pleasure! The King of Nerd is a guest star in this week’s The Guild, season 5, episode 6, “Revolving Doors.”
WTF is The Guild, you ask? It's is a web-only series about a group of nerds obsessed with the same video game. While the misfits can spend countless hours banging out demands on their keyboards to one another, when they meet in real life — and have no clue how to relate to each other — oh, the comedy begins!
Obviously, a show about gamers may not appeal to everyone, but the online series has accumulated over 100 million views in its five seasons, so it definitely has a strong following. The Guild's creator and writer is Felicia Day, and Joss Whedon has said the web series inspired him to make Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog (which Felicia and Nathan both starred in).
BuddyTV also calls it a “Mecca for nerd-loving guest stars,” citing The Big Big Bang Theory’s Simon Helberg and Eureka’s Wil Wheaton’s appearances on the show as examples. Sounds like Nathan will fit right in!
Season 5 follows the oddballs to Mega Game-O-Rama Con, where the guest stars start flooding in. Nathan will play a “big star seeking advice from unlikely sources within the Guild's ranks,” according to Buddy TV, which sounds like real life to us. He will star alongside other geeky guest stars Doug Jones (Hellboy I, Hellboy II and Pan's Labyrinth) and Maurissa Tancharoen (Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog).
