BUFFY VILLAIN JOINS SLITHER
CHUD reports that Nathan Fillion has joined the cast of SLITHER, writer/director James Gunn?s graphic horror film that rolls soon in Vancouver for Universal release. He?ll play a small-town resident who battles an alien-infected man (Michael Rooker) and other gruesome manifestations of an extraterrestrial plague; the cast also includes Elizabeth Banks, Gregg (BODY DOUBLE) Henry and Rheagan Wallace. Fillion played the memorably nasty Caleb in the final season of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, but is best-known for his lead role in BUFFY creator Joss Whedon?s sci-fi series FIREFLY; he also stars in that show?s feature-film spinoff SERENITY, coming from Universal this fall.
