Where Are They Now? The Maincast of Firefly Edition

Since Serenity we haven’t seen the cast of Firefly back in the ‘verse, so just what has the crew been up to? Let’s start with The Captain. Most of you probably know about Fillion’s role in Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, but he also had a cameo in another hit web series  starring Felicia Day called The Guild.

Fillion has done voice acting as Gunnery Sergeant Buck in Halo 3, Halo 3:ODST, and Halo: Reach. At the moment plays the titular character in the show Castle, a show with a great deal of Firefly references, and he was in Joss Whedon’s new film Much Ado About Nothing, a movie based the Shakespeare play of the same name.

Next on the chain of command, we’ve got Gina Torres. In addition to playing Maronda The Witch in Hotel Transylvania, Torres has had a galaxy of cameos in many tv shows. Alan Tudyk has also had a good amount of work. He co-starred in the film Tucker and Dale VS. Evil, he made Transformers: Dark of the Moon watchable by playing the role of Dutch, and more recently was in Wreck-It Ralph and Abraham Lincoln Vampire Slayer. He’s currently a regular member of the cast of Suburgatory.

Another member of the cast whose finding good work in television is Morena Baccarin,  who went on to play Anna in V,  and currently stars in the show Homeland. Adam Baldwin has also been doing quite well, with a large role in the show Chuck, a lot of video game voice acting, and a cameo in Browncoats: Redemption. Jewel Staite got a part as a regular character in Stargate Atlantis, and the role of Raquel Westbrook in the The L.A Complex. She’s also gotten cameos in multiple television shows, and movies.

Unfortunately, I’m sure Kaylee would be disappointed that Sean Maher’s only got only a few movie, and two recurring television roles since Serenity, and one of those television roles was on The Playboy Club, a show that lasted only 7 episodes, with little hope of being brought back any time soon. Summer Glau’s career has fared a lot better with her roles in Dollhouse aka the other Joss Whedon show Fox messed up, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Alphas, and The Cape. She was also in an episode of The Big Bang Theory, a show only one with an excessive amount of nerd cred can be in. And last but not least, we have the final member of the crew, Ron Glass. Glass’s most notable roles are voicing Garth in Fable II, and a small part alongside Tudyk in Strange Frame, a must-see for it’s incredible cast of numerous sci-fi stars. What else has the crew been up to? Let us know in the comments.

    Yeah, all I have to say is that you should have done more research before doing this article. There are so many shows that got missed and all the comments before mine covered most of them.
