Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion’s Con Man already had a bit of a twisty turn-y satirical premise—it was a series about actors in another series within it, a Firefly-esque show called Spectrum cancelled before its time. But now Spectrum is going to live on in our world, if not in Con Man’s, as a new comic miniseries.
Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion have mined their collective Firefly experience to launch Con Man, a webseries focusing on the misadventures of Wray Nerely (Tudyk) who was once on a short-lived cult classic science fiction show called Spectrum. Sound familiar? We asked Tudyk and Fillion what about conventions are so…

Firefly stars Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk have rejoined forces on Con Man, a new Indigogo-funded project about a struggling actor living in the science fiction convention world. io9 sat down both actors to discuss the show, their careers, and the Mexican restaurant that first brought them together.
Disney's new film, Big Hero 6, is a celebration of science and the joy of innovation. In the guise of a superhero origin story, it tells a smart, inventive tale about young science geeks who grapple with issues around the responsible use of technology. It's one of the best science-fiction films in ages. Minor spoilers…
Wreck-It Ralph was a revelation: a fairytale for the videogame age about the true meaning of villainy and heroism. Now Ralph's cowriter, Jennifer Lee, has written and co-directed a new film, Frozen, in which one of the all-time great fairytale villains gets a whole new outlook.
We've certainly wondered what other plot lines the Firefly writers had in store for the crew of Serenity, but we had no idea how many plots were spilling out of actor Alan Tudyk's brain. Nathan Fillion shared one of stories Tudyk pitched for Firefly, and it involves two words: dog pheromones.
Alan Tudyk is obviously deeply attached to the character of Firefly's late, great Hoban "Wash" Washburne. He spent a lot of time coming up with his own Wash story ideas — including the big reveal that Wash has tons of tattoos from the Alliance's toughest prisons. In a terrific new interview with SFX, Tudyk talks about…
Yesterday Nathan Fillion tweeted this very interesting picture of Joss Whedon, Adam Baldwin, Alan Tudyk and himself. But what were they meeting for — to talk about reuniting for a new project? Or is Fillion just being a big tease?
V exceeded many people's expectations last night, getting 13.9 million viewers and coming first among adults aged 18-49. But is the show just one big anti-Obama screed, as some have claimed? We'll answer that question... with spoilers.
It's hard to have faith in ABC's remake of alien-Trojan-horse show V. Paradoxically for a show about aliens who inspire unquestioning love and loyalty, it's been questioned constantly. But there's still hope, and you should still tune in tonight.
With Dollhouse coming back on Friday, we'll finally see Paul Ballard's new status quo. We asked Tahmoh Penikett what to expect. He also told us the Battlestar Galactica ending he fought to change. Also, will he be naked in Riverworld?
No matter how you feel about the G.I. Joe movie, at least the exploding-ninja madness has led to some awesome viral videos. The best of which is probably this song, featuring Billy Crudup as Zartan and Zach Galifiankais as Snow-Job.
We're happy to have the first glimpse at our man Alpha, sticking it to the aliens along with fellow resistance leader Elizabeth Mitchell. What will be their greatest challenge? Supergirl's obscene alien cleavage.
Alpha, the multiple-personality villain on Joss Whedon's Dollhouse, believes he's a god, and he wants to raise Echo to his exalted level, Alan Tudyk explained on a conference call with reporters. Minor spoilers ahead.
Good news for Whedon fans: another Firefly cast member has reportedly been cast in the miniseries reboot of V. Rumor has it the adorable (and versatile) Alan Tudyk has been cast as an FBI agent in the new aliens series, which is fine by me because I prefer all my genre shows with a little Tudyk. Also Laura Vandervoort…
Still wondering who's playing the naked peeping Tom on Joss Whedon's Dollhouse? We've got the final (nearly) naked truth, as well as some cool design sketches of the Dollhouse itself. Spoilers below!
Now that the news we posted about Dollhouse's mysterious Alpha is looking more like a rumor, Joss Whedon has let slip another crucial detail: the actor who plays Alpha may, himself, be a huge spoiler.
