Nathan Fillion Talks About Becoming The Greatest American Hero
In an interview with MTV, the man who should have been Hal Jordan talks about his desire to star in the old TV show remake as well as comparing it with his own cancelled far-too-soon show, Firefly...
We already know that Fillion wants to put the malfunctioning tights on, find out below why exactly he feels so passionate about it...
"I think The Greatest American Hero is ripe for a comeback," Fillion told MTV News. "I know I'm Canadian, but I think I could put my hat in for that one."
"I just finished watching the DVD collection of it and thought it had some really great direction and I think it kind of slipped and slid around a little bit," he explained. "They changed the main character's name a couple times ... It seemed to be suffering from the same kind of mistreatment that Firefly suffered from—episodes being shown out of order, never for more than two weeks consecutively, [and] being preempted for different things."
Firefly was granted the chance to tie up loose ends and get the swan song it deserved with the excellent Serenity, But no such luck for Hero...
"It's too bad they just didn't just let it continue in this very strong direction and just let it become its own thing and let it grow and let it be incredibly strong," he said. "What better way to pay homage to something I enjoyed as a younger man than to do it again."
