CASTLE: Penny Johnson Jerald is the New Captain!

July 13, 2011 by  

There’s a new captain in town.

ABC has confirmed to Give Me My Remote that Penny Johnson Jerald — who is perhaps best known for her role as 24’s Sherry Palmer — has landed the role of Captain Victoria Gates. The casting was first reported by TV Guide.

Gates is described as being “as by-the-book as they come” and has earned the nickname “Iron Gates” — and I can’t wait to see if Castle, Beckett, Esposito and Ryan dare call her that to her face.

What do you think of the casting choice? What you imagined? Or were you hoping for someone else?

    I like her as an actor, so I’m intrigued by this. I’m curious to see how this impacts the dynamic already established on the show.
