News broke today that former One Life to Live favorite Nathan Fillion now the star of ABC’s popular primetime drama, Castle, was a no-show last Friday and halted production of the crime series!

According to Deadline.com  “The set of the ABC crime drama came to a standstill when lead Nathan Fillion didn’t show up Friday. I’ve learned the actor is in the midst of a contract dispute with producers ABC Studios over his desire for a four-day workweek on Castle, which is in production on its sixth season. It looks like the absence was his way of sending a message. ABC reps say the show continues to shoot this week, and Fillion is on set. The actor plays crime novelist Richard Castle on the show, which debuted in 2009 and sees Fillion partnered with NYPD Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic). After a couple of tenuous seasons ratings-wise, Castle ranks as the network’s most-watched drama series.”

So are you glad that Nathan is back on set? Will you be watching the new season of Castle? And, the big question, do you hope Nathan might someday return to the revival of One Life to Live for a guest visit to see his mom, Viki again, played by Erika Slezak? Comment below!

A FOUR DAY WORK WEEK? Does he think he’s Johnny Carson in his 15th season on “Tonight Show”? It takes eight days to film an hour long network drama. So basically Mr. Fillion wants them to take two weeks to film one episode? I don’t think thats even possible with the tight editing schedule a network show has. I worked on a 1/2 hour single camera FOX comedy where one of our main actors pulled a “sick-in” and didn’t really show up for like three weeks. It was a nightmare and really sent production into a tailspin. Luckily there were… Read more »

I like Castle and will watch this next season too! I don’t like hearing he is pulling that kind of stuff… not fair to the cast and crew and the show.

This seems a little silly and unrealistic to demand a 4-day work week. Hope they settle things soon.
Love the show!

I wonder how many unemployed actors would love the five day work week that Fillion is complaining about…I know at least one former daytime actor who would jump at the chance of a regular acting job like this one.

well if they can work smarter, not harder, and can do a 4 day work week, as many american office workers do, why not. the network might even save money on production costs… and you know how they love to save money.

More bad press for fillion. It’s awful that he was on firefly w/c was a futuristic storyline based on Asian american cultures yet there were no Asian american actors and Asian american chars were whitewashed. Now he halts production of his abc tv show. It’s horrid how actors get paid too much to basically say lines written for them. What would be entertainment media’s reaction to this if he was a racial minority? Probably he’d immediately be labeled by the entertainment media as difficult.

What a baby! Give me a break, honor your contract dude! Doing a no-show on the first day of filming your show’s new season is totally unprofessional & will definitely not endear you to the cast & crew who come in prepared & ready to work 5 days a week even coming to work earlier than you do. You can’t cut your work hours & not let the show suffer somehow. It’s a well-oiled running machine & to disrupt it by your whiny demand is pathetic! This is your first hit TV show because of the fantastic cast’s chemistry. Your… Read more »

he may have had a whooper of a hangover. Lately, he has been looking the worst for wear. His appearance tends to resemble the bloated, puffiness of an alcoholic. Or he maybe concealing another medical problem. Does he agree that if he is granted a 4 day work the same should be allowed for the other actors on this show?

I really love the show Castle and watch it ever week! I’ m really disappointed to read the rumors that the Beckett actor is leaving the show! I agree that Fillion is looking heavy and looking rough with bags under his eyes and he is a great looking man so he needs to work on whatever is going on!

Corbin Bernsen to Reprise His Role of Arnie Becker in ‘LA Law’ Revival Pilot

Corbin Bernsen (Father Todd, The Young and the Restless) and the son of Y&R’s late great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) has signed on to reprise his signature primetime television role of womanizing lawyer Arnie Becker in the upcoming LA Law revival pilot.

This makes Corbin the co-lead of the series alongside Blair Underwood (Ex-OLTL) who previously signed on to the pilot to reprise his role of Jonathan Rollins.  ABC has greenlit the pilot.

According to Deadline, it is believed that Bernsen and Underwood will be the only original members of the mid 80’s-90’s legal drama on NBC in the pilot, but more may guest-star if the show gets picked up for a full-season order.

In the premise of the reboot, the law firm of McKenzie Brackman, now named Becker Rollins, reinvents itself as a litigation firm specializing in only the most high profile, boundary pushing and incendiary cases.  The show will feature familiar characters working alongside new ones on the most hot button issues of the day.  As for Bernsen’s Becker, now in his 60’s, look for him to struggle with a rapidly shifting sexual and political landscape.

The original LA Law ran for eight seasons from September 15, 1986 to May 19, 1994 on NBC.

So, what do you think of Corbin taking on the role of Arnie Becket in a revival of LA Law? Would you be intrigued to check out the show if it makes it to series? Comment below.

Justin Hartley Voices ‘Superman’ In New Animated Feature ‘Injustice’

Here’s yet another role that Justin Hartley was born to play, but this time he’s doing it with a twist! Hartley is playing the man of steel, Superman, in the new animated feature from DC Comic and Warner Brothers titled Injustice.

However, being that it’s animated, fans can hear Justin’s voice as Superman.  This is the third superhero role in Hartley’s career having played Green Arrow on Smallville and then Aquaman for a proposed series from the same team.  Of course, soap fans love him for his roles on Passions (Fox Crane) and The Young and the Restless (Adam Newman), while primetime audiences continue to love his portrayal of Kevin Pearson on This Is Us.

In this new animated featured inspired by the popular video game, things go very wrong for Superman, when The Joker tricks him into murdering Lois Lane!

Justin spoke to TV Insider about taking on the legendary super hero via voice-over and shared what was the appeal for him to do. Hartley expressed: “I loved the arc of the character. I love the way it started and how you get behind him. You go, ‘This is very cool to see him at home and nesting and having a good time.’ And then all hell breaks out and I loved the idea that they wrote this guy flawed and this idea of Superman not having all of the answers… and sometimes, the answers that he has are outrageous. That’s a fun character to play.”

Injustice is out tomorrow on October 19th on 4K, Ultra-HD Blu-ray Combo Pack,Blu-ray, and Digital.  Check out a trailer for it below.

So what do you think of Justin as Superman? Comment below.
