Kris Polaha has signed on to recur on CASTLE, a rep for the show has confirmed.

Polaha — who most recently was a series regular on BACKSTROM — will play Caleb Brown, an “idealistic public defender.” Naturally, his line of work will have him butting heads with newly-appointed Captain Beckett, and the rest of the 12th Precinct.

TVLine was first to report the casting.

Are you excited to see Polaha on CASTLE?

One of CASTLE’s biggest — on-screen — changes this season is the addition of Hayley, a private investigator who first interacts with Castle and co. when Beckett goes missing in the season 8 premiere, “XY.”

As I said in my preview of the hour, bringing a new character into an already established show can be a tough challenge, but Hayley instantly fits in. The writers — and her portrayer, Toks Olagundoye — don’t try to echo any character that is already on the canvas. Instead, it just feels like a delightful new figure to explore…which will also allow for our returning favorites to have new energy to bounce off of. (And though she will be sharing some screentime with Castle, as the showrunners said previously, she is not his love interest.)

I spoke with Olagundoye about joining the series, embracing Hayley’s sass, the special relationship between Hayley/Alexis, and more…

CASTLE’s eighth season kicks off in a unique way: when Beckett goes missing, the first hour of the premiere tracks Castle (and the team’s) quest to find out what happened to her. (We’ll see what went down from her point of view in the second episode of the season, “XX.”)

I had the chance to watch the first episode, “XY,” and was able to answer a few of your questions about the hour. As a reminder, the intention of this is never to ruin the viewing experience, so these are more teases than flat-out spoilers.

Here’s what I can say about “XY”…

CASTLE: New Showrunners Alexi Hawley and Terence Paul Winter Tease Season 8

CASTLE is undergoing a good number of changes when the show returns on September 21st.

On-screen, THE NEIGHBORS’ Toks Olagundoye has joined the ABC drama as Hayley, a security specialist; meanwhile, Penny Johnson Jerald (Gates) is off the show, and Beckett is the new captain.

Off-screen, there are some changes at play, too. Season 7 showrunner David Amann has left, as have CASTLE creator Andrew Marlowe and executive producer Terri Edda Miller. Long-time CASTLE writer Terence Paul Winter is now running the series with former CASTLE writer (and recent THE FOLLOWING co-showrunner) Alexi Hawley.

And season 8 is going to be a big one for the show.

“It’s going to be a great year…we have a delightful launch, these wonderful tentpoles where things are changing and evolving,” Winter shared. “And for the whole season, we’re telling a wonderful story from beginning to end that will further the love story of Castle and Beckett.”

I spoke with Winter and Hawley about taking over showrunner responsibilities, what’s in store this season, and more…

Comments Off on CASTLE: THE O.C.’s Kelly Rowan to Guest Star

THE O.C.’s Kelly Rowan (who played Kirsten Cohen on the Fox drama) will guest star on an upcoming episode of CASTLE, a rep for the show has confirmed.

Rowan will play Carla Feller, the dean of a prestigious university. The school gets involved in the CASTLE universe after one of its students has an untimely death.

CASTLE season 8 has already lined up an impressive slate of guest stars: Adam Baldwin and Jack Coleman have booked return trips to the ABC drama, while Ann Cusack will appear in an episode, and Sunkrish Bala has signed on to recur.

EW.com was first to report Rowan’s casting.

CASTLE: Jack Coleman Previews Bracken’s Return

Jack Coleman is going to have a busy, busy fall.

In addition to reprising his role of HRG on NBC’s HEROES REBORN, Coleman will also pop back up on ABC’s CASTLE as Senator Bracken — the man Beckett put away for his role in her mother’s murder — for a mysterious early season guest spot.

“He is a link to a deep dark story that is about to unveil itself,” Coleman teased to reporters after the HEROES REBORN TCA panel. “And he is not in a great place, when we revisit Senator Bracken. He’s a long way from the smug guy in the nice suit.”

And, naturally, his story is tied to Beckett’s once again.

CASTLE: Alexi Hawley and Terence Paul Winter Preview Beckett’s Career Path

CASTLE season 8 will be making some changes to the established team dynamic.

While the season 7 finale had Beckett’s career options up in the air, new co-showrunner Alexi Hawley confirmed that Beckett will indeed be getting promoted when the ABC drama returns this fall.

“At the end of the day, she’s become the captain,” Hawley teased. “But she’s going to be a much more hands-on captain than we’ve seen. She’s still going to be involved in solving cases. What’s great is it changes her relationship with the boys…she’s their boss now. There’s some fun to be had there. We just thought it was a great way to shake things up. Going into season 8 of a show, you need to be able to do that.”

With Beckett’s promotion, she will fill the space that was once occupied by Captain Gates. And while Penny Johnson Jerald (Gates) is off the show as a series regular, Hawley and co-showrunner Terence Paul Winter indicated they’d be open to her returning for a guest spot if the timing could be worked out.

CASTLE’s season is nearly over, but before we can dive into the mysterious finale, there’s a lighter hour: tonight’s “Dead From New York.”

Like the title suggests, the case finds Castle and Beckett investigating the death of a producer of a late night variety show, SATURDAY NIGHT TONIGHT. It’s a fun hour, that includes cute guest spots by Jaleel White and Carly Rae Jepsen.

And after viewing the hour, I have a few teases about the episode…

CASTLE: David Amann Teases Death on ‘Mars,’ Castle’s Missing Time, Beckett Mythology, and More

February 20, 2015 by  
Filed under #1 featured, Castle

castle-logo-featured

CASTLE has (seemingly) said goodbye to its 3XK arc, and now it’s time for the team to get a little bit of a breather…to solve a murder on Mars.

No, the team isn’t going to space (though there are plenty of space/alien/sci-fi jokes in the hour), but the next episode, “The Wrong Stuff,” finds Castle, Beckett, and the team investigating the death of an astronaut who was training for a potential mission to Mars. (It’s as hilarious as you might expect.)

And while there are some lighter hours ahead, the show will also touch back on the mystery of Castle’s wedding day disappearance and subsequent missing months, and Beckett will try to figure out what’s next in her life.

I spoke with CASTLE boss David Amann about those things, and more…

CASTLE: David Amann Teases the ‘Fantastic’ ‘Reckoning’

February 13, 2015 by  
Filed under #1 featured, Castle

castle-logo-featured

3XK/Jerry Tyson returned to the CASTLE scene in a major way with Monday’s episode, “Resurrection”: after being presumed-dead, he resurfaced (along with Dr. Nieman) long enough to claim he was another man who had surgery to look like Tyson…and for Beckett to be drugged and kidnapped, while Tyson and Nieman were at the precinct.

The second hour of the show’s nearly-annual two-parter, “Reckoning,” is perhaps even more intense than “Resurrection” (and maybe ten times as twisted), a fact CASTLE boss David Amann attributed, in part, to the team who helped bring it to life.
