Percy Jackson 2 casts Nathan Fillion and Anthony Stewart Head

Following swiftly on the heels of Nathan Fillion's casting as the swift-heeled Hermes, Anthony Stewart Head has been cast as Chrion in Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Sea of Monsters. Yes, the man who played Giles in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and King Uther Pendragon in Merlin is returning to the fantasy genre once again. This makes two Whedonverse actors cast in the movie so far, both in roles recast from the first movie. Nathan Fillion is replacing Dylan Neal, and Anthony Stewart Head is replacing Pierce Brosnan, arguably proving once and for all that Rupert Giles beats James Bond. (By the way, if Judi Dench ever retires from the role: Anthony Stewart Head for M. Just saying.)

Of course, there could be any number of reasons for Percy Jackson 2’s recasting, including scheduling, budget, and cast chemistry. Or maybe the filmmakers are just toying with us. Awesomely.
