What is better than a former soap hunk in a crime drama? Very little, I suspect, at least for Daytime Confidential's Tina who must be in heaven with word that the pilot of Nathan Fillion's Castle has been picked up by ABC, according to E! Online.
According to E Online "Castle is the story of a mystery writer who advises the New York City police on particularly difficult cases. (Sort of like how after 9/11 the feds asked screenwriters to come up with the craziest terrorist scenarios they could think of, in hopes of being better equipped to deal with the possibilities.)"

So Joss Whedon, genius behind Buffy, Angel, Firefly and the upcoming Dollhouse. had an idea that he thought would be fun to do. He called his brothers and his friends Nate Fillion and Neil Patrick Harris (Doogie Howser, M.D, How I Met Your Mother) and talked them into doing this short project called "Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog"
From Sci-Fi.com : "Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) wrote the musical series during last year's Writers' Strike. Co-writers for the Internet feature are Whedon's brothers, Zack and Jed, and Jed's fiancee, Maurissa Tancharoen. The story centers on a low-rent supervillain (Neil Patrick Harris), the hero who keeps beating him up (Nathan Fillion) and the cute girl from the laundromat he's too shy to talk to (Felicia Day).
