Nathan Fillion asked 343 Devs to make him ‘better looking’

Nathan Fillion recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and recalled how he asked 343 to make his character better looking in Halo 5.

Nathan Fillion of Firefly and Castle fame recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote this month’s release of Halo 5: Guardians. Fillion’s character, Edward Buck, who first appeared in Halo 3: ODST, will be making his return in the fifth entry in the series.

Fillion recalled the process he went through in making this year’s game. He talked about how his character used to just look like a “puppet” of himself in past entries, but in Halo 5, they took it to a whole new level. Fillion traveled to Seattle, where his face was photographed at every angle to create an accurate representation of himself in the game. When he was finished, Fillion jokingly asked one of the 343 developers if they could make him better looking in the game. 

“I said, ‘Can you make it look like I’m just a little bit better-looking than I actually am?'”

What Fillion meant to be a joke was taken quite seriously, and 343 made some adjustments to Fillion’s character model. Fans have taken notice of the changes too. Fillion said:

“Now people are on Twitter going, ‘Hey there’s a guy in Halo 5 who looks just like you, only better-looking.”

The new, improved, and now more handsome Edward Buck will be hunting down Master Chief alongside Spartan Locke and the rest of Fireteam Osiris when Halo 5 launches on October 27. Until then, you can watch Fillion’s clip from Jimmy Kimmel Live here and check out Buck’s new look in the header image up top.
