The 'Firefly' and 'Serenity' star talks about voicing Steve Trevor in the upcoming animated flick
Nathan Fillion, star of Joss Whedon's "Firefly" and "Serenity," will do double duty this March as the title character in ABC's upcoming series "Castle" and the voice of Steve Trevor in "Wonder Woman," the next entry in the popular series of DC Universe animated original PG-13 movies due from Warner Premiere, DC Comics and Warner Bros. Animation on March 3, 2009.

Trevor is voiced by Nathan Fillion, while Hippolyta and Artemis are voiced by Virginia Madsen and Rosario Dawson, respectively. "Wonder Woman," the all-new DC Universe animated original movie set for distribution March 3, 2009 by Warner Home Video.

Prior to recording this film, were you familiar with Greek mythology?
FILLION: My brain is like a hard drive. Once you start adding new information, you start cutting off old information. About four years ago is when my university art history lessons starting getting deleted for new and more exciting information. Well, I don't even know if it's really more exciting. But it sure is new.

You've been involved in a lot of primetime television and feature films in recent years. What prompted you to accept a voiceover role?
FILLION: I find that I'm in a spot in my career right now where a lot of my jobs come around from people I've worked with already. People keep inviting me back. It's nice to work with the same people when you've had a good time previously, and this is one of those cases. So when you get a phone call saying, 'How would you like to be Steve Trevor in the new Wonder Woman animated movie?' you naturally answer 'That would be great.' And you smile all day.
