What do you get when you have Nathan Fillion talking about his Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters character? You get epic awesomeness, of course.

The geektastic Fillion (Firefly, Castle) is playing the Greek messenger God Hermes. So it’s fittingly hilarious that he works in a UPS store (which becomes an OPS store), now, isn't it?

The new, more than two-minute-long action-and-myth-packed video featurette also has interviews with the upcoming fantasy film’s main stars, including the great Anthony Stewart Head (Buffy, Merlin), who plays Charon, the ferryman to Hades.

Directed by Thor Freudenthal, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters will hit theaters on Aug. 7.
