CASTLE: Meet Castle’s Dad!

January 22, 2013 by  

At long last, Castle’s father will be introduced — ABC has confirmed that James Brolin will play the role of Rick’s MIA dad. (According to, he’ll make his debut in the second part of CASTLE’s annual two-part arc, which is set to air February 25th.)

Introducing Castle’s father — who may or may not be involved with the CIA — was a priority for the ABC series…but something they had been willing to hold off on doing to ensure they did it correctly.

“I’m hoping so, but for me, I have to get the right story off the ground,” CASTLE creator Andrew Marlowe told me earlier this season about the prospect of meeting Rick’s dad in the foreseeable future. (They had previously pushed back the storyline the year before.) “It’s gotta be something that is great. We’ve been talking about it here, and we haven’t come up with a version that as great as I want it to be. So, until that happens, I’m willing to be patient. But I’d like to get that story off the ground this year. I have some ideas, but it’s a matter of executing it the right way, and having the right person available for that, you know?”

And now they’ve found the right person.

What are you hoping to see from Castle’s reunion with his father? (And just think about when you add Martha to that mix…)
