Monday, March 9th, 2009 • 7 Comments on C is for Candy, Castle and Cupid
It’s Man Candy Monday, so I thought I’d do my part in sharing the candy by featuring two new television shows I’m excited about. (And I rarely get excited by television shows, believe me.)
First up is Castle, starring Nathan Fillion. Why am I excited? Well, it’s a show about a writer! Fillion plays mystery writer Richard Castle, who learns a copycat killer is staging murder scenes from his novels. Drama, humor, sexual tension—I love it. From the teasers, it looks like it’s going to be a fun show. And isn’t Nathan Fillion is positively delicious in that All American, wouldn’t-you-like-to-corrupt him kind of way? Yum.
Castle debuts tonight!
Next up is Cupid, starring Bobby Cannavale—who may or may not be the Roman god of love. This is actually a remake of the 1998 Cupid series starring Jeremy Piven as Trevor Pierce. It only lasted one season (and no one even seems to remember it), but I thought it was well written and Jeremy Piven was brilliant. Here we are, ten years later, with the same concept and a new actor. I hope it’s as good as the first incarnation.
Cupid debuts Tuesday, March 24.
(A bit of trivia: I went to high school with Bobby Cannavale. He was two years behind me (despite what his bio says about being born in 1971. Hmph.) and I remember him as a scrawny kid who was a bit of a smart ass. So it’s hard for me to look at him and think he’s as scrumptious as Nathan.)
