Midseason Mania: Top Familiar Faces, Part 1 - Featured

Castle, Nathan Fillion - Premieres March 9th

Our beloved star Nathan Fillion has not been absent from TV since the greatness of Firefly, but he finally returns as a series star in our midseason line-up with the new ABC series, Castle. Fillion plays Rick Castle, a famous crime novelist who teams up with NYPD Detective Kate Beckett to help solve real-life crimes. Clever quips and sexual tension ensue.

The Unusuals, Harold Perrineau - Premieres April 8th

Another new ABC midseason series, The Unusuals features a Lost star who has a little more time on his hands, Harold Perrineau.

The United States of Tara, John Corbett & Toni Collette

This new series has already made a successful Showtime premiere, but is very noteworthy in our list of familiar midseason faces as it welcomes fascinating and lovable movie actress Toni Collette to the small screen and our dear Aden, John Corbett from Sex and the City.
