Firefly: Where Are They Now? - Featured

The Firefly cast members have popped up on Desperate Housewives, Chuck, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and more! Find out where else we've seen them since their space cowboy days.


Nathan Fillion - Mal Reynolds

Nathan Fillion has popped up on various shows and movies since his days as captain of the Serenity, including roles in of course Serenity like the rest of the Firefly cast, plus Slither, Waitress, Desperate Housewives, and Lost. He's also starring in an upcoming midseason newbie, Castle, which we fear may already be falling into the Cancellation Danger Zone even before it premieres!


Adam Baldwin - Jayne Cobb

It's hard to follow a role like Jayne, but Adam Baldwin has found another excellent muscleman role for himself on the beloved Chuck as NSA Agent, John Casey. Other than Chuck, Baldwin appeared in a few films including Drillbit Taylor, had roles on Day Break, Stargate SG-1, NCIS, CSI: NY, and a few other shows.


Gina Torres - Zoe Alleyne Washburne

Gina Torres has shown up in a variety of films including reprising her tough-gal role in The Matrix films, then appeared opposite Chris Rock in I Think I Love My Wife, and took part in other films as well. On a personal note, Torres had her first child with husband and Matrix co-star Laurence Fishburne in 2007.


Alan Tudyk - Hoban "Wash" Washburne

Alan Tudyk has been busy with films and plenty more since Firefly, appearing as Steve the Pirate in Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, plus taking part in I, Robot, Knocked Up, Death at a Funeral, and 3:10 to Yuma.


Jewel Staite - Kaylee Frye

Jewel Staite is currently playing Dr. Jennifer Keller on Stargate Atlantis (which according to Wikipedia makes her the third Firefly cast member to appear in a Stargate series). She also starred in the brief Fox series Wonderfalls in 2004.


Summer Glau - River Tam

Summer Glau has become one of the most successful Firefly alums with her role on the so far successful Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. She also had short runs on The 4400 and The Unit, and will soon make an appearance as herself on The Big Bang Theory.


Sean Maher - Dr. Simon Tam

Sean Maher appeared on CSI: Miami in 2004, then took part in various movies and shows since including Ghost Whisperer, Serenity, and Wedding Wars.



Morena Baccarin - Inara Serra

Since her Firefly days, Morena Baccarin took part in Serenity and Justice League Unlimited, then various TV roles including on How I Met Your Mother, The O.C., Las Vegas, Stargate SG-1, and Dirt.

Adam Baldwin was also in an episode of Bones. And I hate to say it, since I'm an old school fan of The Shadow, but I think Adam is my new favorite Baldwin. He's pretty much a registered bamf.After Jayne on Firefly and Serenity, and John Casey on Chuck, he's pretty much taken over the action genre for the Baldwins.
And lest I forget, Nathan Fillion was Captain Hammer (corporate tool) in the hugely internet-famous Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog and co-starred with Neil Patrick Harris.

Tokubei, I hate to break this to you...although Adam's last name is 'Baldwin', he's not 'a Baldwin'. That's right, no relation to the movie star family out of New York. I thought so too, but I looked it up when my wife called me on it.You're right tho, Adam rocks.

The first what was in Dollhouse viverl? Joss Whedon normally uses the same actors over and over again so wouldn't be suprise if some of the crew of Serenity pop up in it. I mean half of them were in Buffy/Angel before Firefly. Alan Tudyk is an awesome actor and hope we see more of him in the future in other shows or movies.

I love Alan Tudyk so it's really good to hear he's going to be on Dollhouse!! On a side note, he's in a really funny Dish Direct commercial..."Dude, don't be a hero!"

Adam Baldwin and Gina Torres both starred as villains on Angel. Adam was one of the big time employees for Wolfram and Hart, and Gina was some weird mythic goddess who everyone was in love with. Summer Glau was a ballerina in one of the nominated episodes of Angel, that I can't quite remember the name of. And Nathan Fillion was the evil priest on the last season of Buffy.Oh, and one of the guest stars on Firefly (the guy who pretended to be dead and shipped himself to Malcolm and Zoey) he was also on Angel. He played Fred's lab assistant and, no big surprise, also turned out to be evil. It seems as if Joss Whedon took all the villains from his other shows and mixed them together as misfit heroes on Firefly.

Wasn't the the guy who pretended to be dead on Firefly also the guy who was sired by Spike and had a long conversation with Buffy before she staked him?
