Nathan Fillion character cast in Castle’s Firefly episode

In the upcoming season of the ABC drama, the mystery writer heads off to a Comic-Con-style fan convention. There he meets the former star of a sci-fi cult-favorite TV show whose career and personal life has gone down the tubes since the show was cancelled. That character, Captain Max Richards will be played by Eureka actor Ed Quinn.

Meanwhile, we’re told you can expect plenty of Firefly winks in the hour, just as you might expect. Between the fan convention setting and the washed-up sci-fi actor character, there’s plenty of opportunity for Castle to have some fun with this setup.
