Nathan Fillion is right at home at Comic-Con

Among TV stars, no one (with the possible exception of "Dexter's" Michael C. Hall) has a more devoted following at San Diego Comic-Con each year than Nathan Fillion.

His popularity has grown by leaps and bounds among fanboys and fangirls ever since the cult series "Firefly," and within the past year, he's broken into the mainstream with the ABC detective show, "Castle."

"Castle" was not the only cop show at Comic-Con (see "Hawaii Five-O"), but if it didn't star Fillion, it probably wouldn't be there.

Fillion freely admits to loving the Comic-Con experience as much as the fans there love him. "I'm a fan, I'm a geek," he said, speaking to the media. "I'll wear my Spider-Man Marvel t-shirt, I'm having a good time. I'm so happy to be a part of the things I'm a fan of."

As for his hit show, "Castle," creator Andrew Marlowe revealed that Castle will soon be forced to undergo police training, in order to keep working with Detective Beckett, and will soon face a new serial killer adversary.

Fillion, who gleefully took part in "double rainbows" mania earlier this month on Twitter, had one succinct way to describe the show if it were a rainbow: "I would have to say it is vivid, intense, and full-on, all the way across the sky."

    Nathan Fillion seems like such a good catch – why is this man not married? Total package!

    Hey-my long detailed e-mail about the lameness of Castle and its ilk has disappeared! Suffice it to say -Nathan Fillion, good-Firefly, good. David Boreanaz, good-Angel/Buffy, good. Castle & Bones, very, very, very bad.

    MMMMMMMM – Nathan Fillion (and I've been a LONG TIME fan of Brucie – loved Brisco, Xena and Jack...) I second om noms. Check out Nathan's interviews – they are hysterical, on being typecast as an OB/GYN and also about his cat...LOL.

    I was saying what he was known for specifically. lol. I'm a big fan of Nathan Fillion. In fact, I've been watching Firefly lately. Glad he got another TV show. Also, READ THE FIREFLY GRAPHIC NOVELS! They are awesome!

    Bruce Campbell didn't become a star because of Burn Notice. He became a star over the Evil Dead movies, as well as Army of Darkness. He was in the Hercules/Xena series as a minor character as well as had 2 of his own tv shows: Brisco and Jack of all Trades! *grumbles* My fave movie of his was Bubba Hotep though. I have a room mate that is a big fan of his and also got to meet him at Comicpalooza. So yeah...

    Nathan is huge at Comic-con, but there is one other person bigger than him at Comic-Con.....Bruce Campbell of Burn Notice.
