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!
