Castle Guest Star Adam Baldwin on Reuniting With Firefly Co-Star Nathan Fillion: It Was Like Slipping Into an Old Brown Coat
Tonight, Firefly alum Adam Baldwin will take on new form as gang unit cop Detective Ethan Slaughter on Castle. Since this will be the first time Baldwin and old crony Nathan Fillion (Castle) will reunite on-screen in eight years, everybody’s excited — especially the stars themselves!
Baldwin’s been on the press circuit the last few days, and in honor of his visit to the 12th tonight, we’ve rounded up a few of Baldwin’s best quotes — and juiciest spoilers — from his various interviews. Prepare to be entertained — or else!
“More serendipity I think. Castle is in a bit of a transitional phase with Beckett, figuring things out, and this was an opportunity to see another side of law enforcement, and Slaughter is in turn using Castle for selfish reasons. It’s a partnership of convenience for both,” he tells The TV Addict.
As long as Castle comes out alive, we're OK with him seeing things from the other side. If anything, he'll come to realize that the grass isn't always greener, and run right back into Beckett's loving embrace. Or, you know, the empty chair beside her desk.
“It was returning the favor from the old days of Firefly and Serenity, when [Nathan] would kick my ass," Baldwin dishes to BuddyTV. "[Fillion] just loved being able to be put in that position too."
