Michelle Monaghan Interviews Nathan Fillion – JustJared.com Exclusive
Michelle Monaghan: You and I collaborated with Tyler Shields on his latest photographic exhibition titled, Historical Fiction. I imagine you had as much fun as I did….
Nathan Fillion: You imagine correctly, Michelle.
MM: What was it about this particular project that made you want to be a part of it?
NF: I admit I jumped at any chance to work with Tyler. It was more about him than the project. I’ve known him for a while, and wanted to do some piece with him, any piece. Then this came up and it was perfect!
MM: What was your “headline” and what did it mean to you personally?
NF: MEN WALK ON THE MOON. To me, this speaks of a time when America wasn’t just about the almighty buck. The Russians had put up Sputnik, and the U.S. would not be outdone. I admire that about the American spirit. There’s only one spot in history for the first ever of anything.
MM: Tyler is adamant that his set design, props, wardrobe, hair
and makeup are all authentic to the time period he is shooting. Can you
share a little about your experience with that?
NF: When you slick back your hair, you get a really good idea of just how melon-like your head actually is.
MM: You look pretty dapper as a man from the 60′s. Have you ever played a character from that era?
NF: No, but my friend was on Mad Men… so, there’s that.
MM: The video you shot in conjunction with the photo is priceless. Can you set up the story for us?
NF: A secret tryst in the galley causes some “bumpy air” for the passengers. Which, if your trysts are ever described as “bumpy air”, you’re doing it wrong.
MM: Well then, I guess I have to ask – not that I expect an answer – have you joined the “mile-high club” or only in the Historical Fiction sense?
NF: I am not a member, but I read there’s a plane you can charter for just that reason. So, maybe the next time you see me I’ll have my card. Is that a punch card thing? Can I use air miles?
MM: Thanks for your time my friend! (kiss)
NF: Thank you. See you Sunday. Get your game face on!
