Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan are an inseparable pair, but that wasn’t always the case. From the moment these two mismatched monsters met they couldn’t stand each other. ‘Monsters University’ unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends. Screaming with laughter and fun, ‘Monsters University’ is directed by Dan Scanlon and stars the likes of John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Dave Foley, Julia Sweeney, Joel Murray, Helen Mirren, Ben Kingsley, Peter Sohn, Nathan Fillion, John Krasinski, Bonnie Hunt, Sean P. Hayes, Charlie Day, Aubrey Plaza and Alfred Molina. ‘Monsters University’ arrives in cinemas on June 21th in the US and July 12th in the UK.
Check out my brief interview with Nathan Fillion here.
Nathan Fillion, star of ABC’s Castle, has a way of popping up in unexpected places, from Saving Private Ryan (as the wrong Ryan) to Buffy the Vampire Slayer (as a defrocked priest and serial killer), King of the Hill (as a Frisbee guy), Lost (as Kate’s ex-husband), Desperate Housewives (as Katherine Mayfair’s ex-husband) and a Marine sergeant in Xbox 360’s Halo 3.
But he’s never played a monster before now. On Friday, he makes his debut as Johnny in Disney/Pixar’s new animated adventure, Monsters University.
And he loves it.

Fear not, Browncoats and others fond of Nathan Fillion! One of the reigning kings of the Con has confirmed that he will be in attendance at the San Diego Comic-Con this July.
The admission that the actor would be heading to SDCC in the summer of 2013 came up in an interview with Collider. After spending precious seconds talking about his many film roles this summer — Fillion has roles in “Monsters University,” “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters” and “Much Ado About Nothing” — he mentions all-too-briefly that Comic-Con is in the cards.
To hear Nathan Fillion tell it, when Joss Whedon recruited him to play Dogberry in an adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing,” Fillion was expecting a much more … modest production.
It was a reasonable expectation.
After all, the plan was to shoot the movie digitally over 12 days at Whedon’s house, while Whedon was on a two-week break in the middle of directing “The Avengers.” And the idea grew out of a series of low-key “Shakespeare brunches” Whedon held at his house, where his actor friends would come over and read aloud from the Bard’s plays. Fillion had attended a couple of them.
Joss Whedon knows how to build an ensemble. Whether it’s a blockbuster franchise like “The Avengers” or any of his beloved television series, the writer-director specializes in matching his stable of great actors to the right material. So when he decided to tackle Shakespeare’s classic tale of sparring lovers, “Much Ado About Nothing,” he gave it a distinctly Whedonesque spin. Whedon shot the film in black and white in only 12 days at his Santa Monica home, using an ensemble of actors with whom he was already familiar. Many had performed the Bard’s words for Whedon as part of his legendary Shakespeare brunches, where he gathers actors at his home to read plays. His “Ado” film cast includes “Angel” stars Amy Acker and Alexis Denisof, who play soul mates Beatrice and Benedick; “Dollhouse” genius Fran Kranz as young lover Claudio; “Avengers” agent Clark Gregg as Leonato; and “Firefly” captain Nathan Fillion as the comically inept constable Dogberry.

“I know the answer, and I’m not telling you,” she teased EW last night at a gala sponsored by Women in Film. But while she couldn’t reveal any secrets, Katic said she was quite happy with the answer Beckett gives. “I think that her answer is the perfect one for the character and for the show,” she says. Moreover, she doesn’t feel like Castle jumped the gun with his question at all because even though they’ve only been officially dating about a year, “I think it has been long enough for a yes or no answer. I figure the intense situations they’ve gone through together has sped up their bond.”
Proposals aside, there are professional questions also lingering as Beckett still has a big D.C. job offer hanging over her head. Katic says she is in favor of Beckett’s possible relocation. “It’s New York City and D.C. It’s not that far,” she says. “It also helps that he is a millionaire and a writer, which he can do anywhere. So how rough is that? He can afford to hire a private plane or two on her days off.” In Katic’s view, Beckett “has worked really hard to get to this point in her career, and there is a part of me that feels like she shouldn’t have to give up success in her professional life to keep her relationship happy, and vice versa. In real life, woman balance family, relationships, and careers all the time. Why should Beckett be any different?” she says.
During the recent L.A. press day, I landed an extended video interview with Fillion. He talked about making Much Ado, the complicated dialogue, if he agrees to whatever Joss Whedon asks of him, Twitter, what he geeks out over, his thoughts on the Star Wars sequels, the idea of appearing as Captain Malcolm Reynolds in another movie as a cameo, and more. In addition, he talks about his voice role for Monsters University and his Pixar fandom, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters and his appreciation for star Logan Lerman, Justice Leage: The Flashpoint Paradox, and reveals he’ll be at Comic-Con next month for Nerd Machine.
