It was one of those bits that may have “looked good on paper,” as the old cliche goes, but in actual execution, it was a different story.
You can form your own opinion of this “duel” — waged with elaborate protective, plexiglass armor and suction-cup “arrows” — by watching the clip, above. For us, though, the interview segments between Fallon and Fillion were much more engaging.
In Part 1, Fillion, 41, reminisced about his days as a young actor in New York, where he starred on “One Life to Live.” He also gave instructions on how to comport oneself on a celebrity red carpet, advice we hope might come in handy someday.
In Part 2, Fillion shed some light on his private life in L.A., telling Jimmy a yarn about a backyard barbecue he held in which he accidentally served veggie burgers dripping with pork fat to some vegetarian guests.
He also teased the upcoming season finale of “Castle” — airing Monday (May 7) at 10/9c on ABC. The big question on this show always seems to center on the sexual chemistry between its two leading characters — Richard Castle (Fillion) and Det. Kate Beckett (Stana Katic). Fillion was careful enough not to reveal what happens between these two as the season comes to a close.
