Nathan Fillion Wants In on Halo: Reach

Firefly actor Nathan Fillion has seen an early version of Halo: Reach, and says it was awesome enough to convince him to enter the voice actor's studio again, should Bungie wish it.

[mtv=439556]

What we learn in the above video from MTV Multiplayer [http://multiplayerblog.mtv.com/2009/09/24/video-nathan-fillion-has-seen-halo-reach-wants-in/]:

1.) Nathan Fillion went to Bungie and saw "fun time," which in the context in the video apparently refers to part of the process of making Halo: Reach - he "watched them build it."

2.) Bungie knows that Fillion is "in, for whatever they've got going on."

3.) There's something going on between Fillion and Bungie staff composer Marty O'Donnell [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_O%27Donnell], seriously. Flirting? Third dates? Ah Nathan, you're breaking the heart of every nerd from here to Tokyo.

In any case, Fillion's voice work as ODST protagonist Buck is one of the things that even its detractors can't really complain about, so I'd be surprised if people greeted this news with dismay. More Nathan Fillion? How can anybody say no to that?

"Lets not play this game...lets not play this game...they know...their liking it..." I laughed at that part...thought it was very smug...

So whats up with this guy? Didn't he already have a role on ODST? Why would Reach be a problem? (aside from the fact that it would not make sense...like having the same voice actor starring as the main character in all the Silent Hill games...)

Also...what happened to this guys dream? [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/93572-Superman-Wants-to-Be-in-Warcraft-Movie]

According to Halo 3: ODST, both Dare and Buck were on Reach and were able to escape. So he could be reprising his roll as Buck in Halo: Reach.

HELL YES. Its kind of funny though how in ODST his game counter part looks almost exactly like he does in real life.

I'm assuming that he still expects them to pay him for his voice acting.

So, officially, Bungie, I'm also willing to be in on that gravy train too.

Awesomeness. That's pretty much all I have to say. Now if only I knew what Reach is (is it going to be like Section 8 only Halo-i-tized? Is it an RTS? Is it a standard Halo game centered around the Fall of Reach?)

Haven't watched one episode of Firefly. Still, good for him, I guess? He looks like a cool dude.

Ah, my mistake then...I'm not all that well versed in Halo lore...

I heard Megan Fox would play Tyrande Whisperwind, the night elf!

And that Michael Moore would play a paladin!

Awesome. He's a good voice actor, haven't seen Firefly though.

Additionally-I want his suit and shirt. They even put my professionally handmade pinstripe suit/trousers/waistcoat and purple shirt to shame.
