Nathan Fillion talks about Trucker and Doctor Horrible

Nathan Fillion was in Australia this weekend.
He was there with Ron Glass (veteran actor who starred as Book in Firefly/Serenity) and Jason Palmer (artist for Serenity) taking part in Hub Productions Serenity conventions in Sydney and Melbourne. He latest film, 'Trucker' was released recently and the 'TruckerMovie.net' website caught up with him to ask him some questions. As usual, Nathan was his honest and cheery self and you can read the whole interview here.

What does he think of Doctor Horrible?
At the end of the interview Nathan was asked about what he could say about Doctor Horrible. It appears that Nathan thinks it's going to be good: "It’s gonna rock....this incredible music that we were singing, these incredible lyrics, these wonderful songs.. I saw a rough cut of this thing and it’s frickin’ great. It’s changed my opinion as to how things are going to work in the future as far as taking the producers out of the equation and the internet is now your distribution. I think everything’s going to change and I think this is certainly my first experience in the direction things are going." Nathan singing. Now that's certainly something to look forward to!

Nathan Fillion: star of the future?
Mr Fillion has starred and worked on some fantastic TV shows and movies but he hasn't, apparently, made it 'big' yet. Of course, that is all relative and most people would agree that whatever they have seen him in, he has always stood out as a great actor. His IMDb entry is packed, and he has written a new show for ABC, Repo Brothers, so we should be seeing more of him in the future. Now he has a taste of how an Internet show can be done and it just makes me wonder. My bet is that it won't be long before we see Mr Fillion taking on Felicia Day for title of 'Most Internet-Savvy Whedon Alum'. He just needs to learn how to turn his computer on....!
