Nathan Fillion has won fans over alternately as Buffy's Caleb, Firefly's dashing Capt. Mal and a hunky Wisteria Lane doctor. Starting Monday, March 9 (at 10 pm/ET), Fillion will appear as Nick Castle, a wise-cracking mystery writer in need of inspiration in ABC's comedic crime drama, Castle.
Fillion and his smoldering costar, Stana Katic, spoke with TVGuide.com just ahead of the show's arrival to dish on their on-screen battle of the wits, what fans will see from Fillion that they haven't seen before, and why they were each drawn to the show.
Plus, will Fillion be teaming up with Joss Whedon again? When the cameras weren't rolling, the actor said he'd sign up for anything the Buffy creator (and current Dollhouse producer) asked him to join.

Thursday's ratings snapshot:
American Idol's lucky number was (Top) 13, as it won the night with an audience of 21.24 million total viewers, a 6 percent dip from Wednesday's results show. Survivor placed a distant second with 11.98 mil (down 300K week-to-week), followed by Ugly Betty (slipping 430 thou, to 6.38 mil).
NBC's Earl (5.55 mil) dropped 17 percent from its last fresh outing, while Kath & Kim (4.16 mil) saw a decent gain.
CSI nipped at Idol's heels for best-of-night honors, surging 17 percent to deliver 20.8 million viewers. That's the procedural's biggest draw since Grissom said goodbye. (Um, thanks, Taylor Swift...?) With Grey's taking a knee (and goosed by Idol's overrun), Hell's Kitchen cooked up a second-place finish with 8.63 mil.
The Office (8.63 mil) dipped 270K, while 30 Rock leaped 17 percent to hit 7.35 mil.
