Nicholas Brendon

  1. Nathan Fillon, Firefly, TV, 2002-2003.     Joss Whedon created the series – and the main man, Mal Reynolds, captain of the 2517 AD spaceship, Serenity – for Brendon. However, he was still stuck in Whedon’s far more successful creation, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, 1996-2003. With Brandon aboard, the seies would have have fireflown into a longer run. He had more going for him than the stodgy (and soon after in Castle) podgy Fillon.
  2. J August Richards, The Agents of SHIELD, TV,  2013-2015.    Brendon let slip during a panel at the  Albuquerque Comic Expo that he and Richards were the last two for Mike Peterson, the first live-action portrayal of Deathlok the Demolisher.  Both Brendon and Richards had previously worked for  the show’s creator, writer, exec producer Joss Whedon in, respectively,  Buffy The Vampire Slayer, 1996-2003, and Angel, 2000-2004.
