Nathan Fillion Was A Long-Haired, Flannel Loving Nerd In The '90s (PHOTOS)

We already know that Nathan Fillion is a total babe but we weren't prepared for what we saw when we stumbled upon a photo of him from the 1990s.

The hilarious photo collage, which is making the rounds on Reddit, shows the young budding actor wearing a blue and white sleeveless flannel shirt tucked into baggy jeans (with a belt, no less) and sporting a long shaggy 'do a la Jonathan Taylor Thomas.

The former "Firefly" star poses in four photos that make up the collage, and, save for a pic that shows the "Castle" actor getting cozy with a giant gumball machine, the Edmonton, Alta. native shows off his heartthrob quality the way only Tiger Beat cover stars can (aka the crouching-arm-resting-on-one-leg position).

Funnily enough, it was former "Star Trek: The Next Generation" star Will Wheaton who first shared this insightful photo with the world, on Twitter no less.

Thank you Wesley Crusher Will Wheaton for this gift that keeps on giving.
