Nathan Fillion says he would work with Joss Whedon again "in a second"

Brave white man Nathan Fillion has come forward and said he would be back working with colleague Joss Whedon "in a second". However, he probably loves any work that doesn't involve playing a rookie cop in 2022...

"I mean, listen to him admit himself that this guy is a work in progress and I appreciate that...I'd work with Joss again in a heartbeat. I would work with him again in a heartbeat," Fillion says during an episode of the Inside Of You podcast, as reported by Variety.
Fillion is best known for playing Captain Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds on Whedon's space western show Firefly. When the show was canceled after one season, Fillion starred in the spin-off film Serenity. He also worked with Whedon on Much Ado About Nothing, Dr. Horrible's sing-along blog, and appeared in Buffy The Vampire Slayer season 7 as a frighteningly misogynistic preacher named Caleb.

Fillion joins the notorious director in saying he didn't witness Whedon being abused on set while they worked together. “I read that article and nowhere in it did he mention Firefly at any point. I had quite a — that wasn't my experience with this man," says Fillion. In the podcast, he describes Whedon as "funny, self-deprecating, incredibly talented" and "maybe a little haunted."

Of course, two of Whedon's most outspoken critics/accusers are Buffy and Angel's charisma Carpenter and Justice League's Ray Fisher, so Fillion - who is neither a woman nor a person of color - was probably exposed to a different side of Whedon.
Fillion points to the profile published in New York Magazine earlier this year, in which Whedon defends himself against the long list of allegations against him regarding his on-set behavior, dating back to the Buffy days.

Allegations against Whedon include Fisher calling his conduct on set "rude, abusive, unprofessional and totally unacceptable." And Carpenter later detailed the alleged emotional abuse she suffered at the hands of Whedon, which centered on her pregnancy during Angel's third season.

Justice League's Gal Gadot also shared an alleged incident in which she says Whedon threatened her career. In the New York article, Whedon replied, "I don't threaten people. Who does that? English isn't their first language and I tend to be annoyingly flowery in my language."
