A fave of gay gamers, Nathan Fillion reveals his own man crushes

It’s no secret that Nathan Fillion is a crush for many gay fans.

The Castle star has long been a favorite of geeks – gay and straight alike – since his role as Captain Malcolm Reynolds on the 2002-03 cult hit Firefly and its feature film continuation, Serenity.

So does he have any man crushes?

It turns out he does.

‘Umm, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jeremy Renner, Bradley Cooper,’ he tells The Advocate.

‘Who else do I think is really great? Both of the Wilson brothers (Owen and Luke). Who else? There was somebody I was just watching the other day and they were amazing. Tom Hiddleston! Tom Hiddleston! That was the one! Did I mention him?’

Although he has many gay fans, they don’t get too aggressive with the handsome 44-year-old actor.

‘I don’t get hit on often by any fans. A flirt now and again,’ Fillion says. ‘But I have had some very nice compliments from gay male fans.

‘A compliment is a compliment. I take ‘em where I can get ‘em.’

Asked what he would like to say to his legions of gay fans Fillion says: ‘Say it loud, say it proud.’
