The summer is a sad place with no new episodes of Castle. Thank Goodness we’ll be getting a double shot of Nathan Fillion this summer in both Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters and Joss Whedon‘s Much Ado about Nothing.
In the latter, Fillion plays Dogberry, an incompetent constable tasked with uncovering the sinister plot of Don John (Sean Maher).
Check out this clip of him that was just released through IGN featuring him and Riki Lindhome.
Joining them in the film are: Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, Fran Kranz, Jillian Morgese, Clark Gregg, Tom Lenk, Ashley Johnson, and Reed Diamond.
Much Ado about Nothing opens in limited release on June 7th.
Synopsis for Much Ado about Nothing:
Leonato, the governor of Messina, is visited by his friend Don Pedro who is returning from a victorious campaign against his rebellious brother Don John. Accompanying Don Pedro are two of his officers: Benedick and Claudio. While in Messina, Claudio falls for Leonato’s daughter Hero, while Benedick verbally spars with Beatrice, the governor’s niece. The budding love between Claudio and Hero prompts Don Pedro to arrange with Leonato for a marriage.
In the days leading up to the ceremony, Don Pedro, with the help of Leonato, Claudio and Hero, attempts to sport with Benedick and Beatrice in an effort to trick the two into falling in love. Meanwhile, the villainous Don John, with the help of his allies: Conrade and Borachio, plots against the happy couple, using his own form of trickery to try to destroy the marriage before it begins.
A series of comic and tragic events continue to keep the two couples from truly finding happiness, but then again perhaps love may prevail.
