Mal and Wash are together again!
Nathan Fillion and fellow Firefly alum Alan Tudyk have teamed up again to bring on the funny for a new nerd-tastic project after almost 10 years.
The Fox show, which debuted in 2002 and was canceled after one season, starred Fillion, now known for his leading role in ABC's Castle, as Captain Malcolm Reynolds, or Mal, while Tudyk played Hoban Washburne, aka Wash, the pilot of their spaceship Serenity. The two reprised their roles in a 2005 movie, Serenity. Over the years, they and other cast members have often attended fan conventions.
This week, Fillion and Tudyk announced they are working a comedy series titled Con Man, which is about...wait for it...two men who played a captain and pilot of a spaceship on a cult TV show that's no longer airing, and frequent fan conventions. They launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding page to raise money for the project and as of Thursday, have received more than $640,000 in donations—way past their $425,000 goal.
