Tag: Castle (79-91 of 195)
Nathan Fillion is in for some “sweet, sweet revenge,” as his former Firefly costar Adam Baldwin calls it.
“It was great to be able to turn the tables on him finally. I was playing the subservient Jayne Cobb to his Mal Reynolds for a while and to get a chance to be a character who was a bit over his rank and be able to push him around a bit was just liberating,” he says. “Plus, the opportunity to work with Nathan again — he’s such a loving and giving actor for anybody that he works with and especially for the old [Firefly] crew.”
On tonight’s Castle, Fillion’s Richard Castle meets Baldwin’s Detective Nathan Slaughter, a no-nonsense badge from the gang unit who takes the writer along for a few adventures, acting as a pseudo-muse in place of Beckett. (She and Castle are still on the outs.) But Beckett he is not. “[Slaughter] uses unorthodox methodology to get results,” teases Baldwin. (See a preview below.) “When he’s given the opportunity to bring Castle along and show him the ropes — for selfish reasons, of course — Castle finds it a bit repulsive but also a bit attractive. There’s that thrilling heroics that he gets to be a part of.” READ FULL STORY
'Castle,' 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Hawaii Five-0,' 'Once Upon a Time': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room
I had a revelation recently when chatting with my colleague Mandi Bierly about her sharing a dish of lobster mac and cheese with Pauly Shore during a recent interview. (You could ask her for details on that story, but that’s really all there is to it.): My life is weird.
In the past week, I’ve party-stalked Charlie Sheen (with no luck getting two minutes alone for an interview), talked about Titanic with Ringer‘s Ioan Gruffudd (he’s in it!), watched Megan Mullally steal from my colleagues, and hung out with the cast of the fantastic new drama Scandal. Yes, life is strange. But also wonderful. I guess this is my long-winded way of saying thanks for being part of my wonderful, strange life, Roomies.
And let me return the favor by seeking out some scoop for you. E-mail all requests to email@example.com or ask me on Twitter. See you next week!
Richard Castle’s hurting — and it’s not easy to watch. In fact, it’s downright heartbreaking.
After learning in last week’s episode that Beckett (Stana Katic) remembered everything about being shot (including, you’ll recall, Castle’s confession of love), Castle (Nathan Fillion) is looking for a way to deal with an influx of disappointment. His solution? Apparently flaunting a blonde in front of Beckett in tonight’s episode! But there’s so much more underneath his playboy guise, says executive producer and creator Andrew Marlowe.
“I think he feels like if he confronts her, it’s just gonna be a big ego blow, so it’s better for him to swallow it at this point, which gives us a little bit of drama in the next couple episodes,” he says. And with only four episodes (including tonight’s) left in the rest of the season, the drama will come fast and furious, stemming first from the fact that poor Beckett has no idea why Castle is giving her the cold shoulder. But her confusion and — in a way — her sense of loss from his apparent “drifting away” could prompt Beckett to make some bold actions. “She’s wondering if she needs to declare herself, and she’s feeling ready…but then he’s acting out. So his behavior is going to be a little challenging to her, and it puts us in an interesting place for the next couple episodes,” Marlowe says.

Stars from 'Vampire Diaries,' 'Castle,' and 'Revenge' talk what's next in Spoiler Room: Video Edition
While on the set of The Vampire Diaries about six weeks ago, I took note of a familiar face walking around set: Robert Ri’chard, who plays Jaime.
Now, at the time, we’d only recently been introduced to the boy, who is the adoptive son of Bonnie’s (Kat Graham) mom, Abby (Persia White). But seeing him lurk around set was a pretty good indication he’d be back. And he is!
This Thursday, in fact, and from what Kat Graham indicates, it’s to connect on a new, romantic level. (They’re not blood, so we’re OK with that, right?) But that’s just one of the things in store for the Bennett family. Candice Accola was also nice enough to share some details on that in the latest Spoiler Room: Video Edition, which you can check out below.
Also in store? Some scoop from Tamala Jones on the upcoming Castle episode, “The Limey.” (Hint: Lainey’s as ready as we are for some Caskett!) and Gabriel Mann teases a big twist with Nolan on Revenge that we won’t see coming. (Could it be revealed in the much-hyped flashback episode? Could be, could be.)
Anyway, enjoy, folks. See you back here on Friday for your regular column. In the meantime, send me an e-mail if you have a scoop request — or if you want to play Draw Something with me! (I wish I was kidding… but, tragically, I’m just that sad.) READ FULL STORY
'Pretty Little Liars,' 'The Vampire Diaries,' 'Secret Circle,' 'Revenge': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room
It’s that time of the week again, so I hope you enjoy some of the juicy tidbits in this week’s installment. And with finales just around the corner, I imagine it’s all just going to get juicier as the weeks tick by.
But on that note, if there’s something I’m missing, don’t hesitate to put in a scoop request! (firstname.lastname@example.org) And a million thank yous to those who already write in! Wait, let’s make that a thousand. We’re in a recession after all. I have to be prudent.
‘PRETTY LITTLE LIARS': THREE BURNING QUESTIONS ANSWERED!
What’s better than an in-office visit from a Pretty Little Liar? If I may douchily answer myself: A visit from TWO Pretty Little Liars. And that’s exactly what happened to me yesterday when Lucy Hale and Troian Bellisario stopped in to film a quick video (which I’ll share with you Monday!), make me laugh (you’ll see…), and answer some of your burning questions!

'Castle' star Stana Katic: 'Caskett fans will be very pleased by the end of the season.' Plus, more scoop! -- EW VIDEO
The March 19 episode of Castle, screened tonight for a packed theater during PaleyFest in Los Angeles, has all the things that make a great standalone hour.
There’s a mind-bending case (involving a murder at a Dancing With the Stars-esque show), some hilarious interactions between Ryan (Seamus Dever) and Esposito (Jon Huertas), a few great scenes involving Martha (Susan Sullivan) and a rival from her past, and, of course, a revealing moment or two between one of TV’s best sort-of couples, Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic). But executive producer and creator Andrew Marlowe had a warning for the crowd before he showed the episode: Take some time to bask in the familiar lightness of the episode — because things are going to get heavy. “[It’s] the last normal episode before the story weather hits,” he said during his introduction. Gulp.
Of course, that’s pretty much how Castle operates every year, but this season, more than ever, has played with the build up between Castle and Beckett. At the end of last season, Castle whispered to injured Kate that he loved her and neither party has addressed it since. (Castle is under the impression she didn’t hear it, but the audience knows that is not true.)
So will the end of the season bring around the payoff fans have been seeking? You bet, says Marlowe. “This has been a season of secrets. Castle and Beckett are both keeping significant secrets from each other…and they start to come out. And both characters — and all the characters around them — will have to deal with the emotional consequences of it,” he said. “We’re really looking forward to bringing those episodes to life. We think it will be a lot of fun for loyal fans of the show to see these characters tested.”
In fact, before the event, Stana Katic confidently said that fans of the pairing won’t be disappointed with the outcome the show has in store. “Caskett fans will be very pleased by the end of the season,” she said coyly. And for anyone that follows casting news, that promise holds even greater value now that we know Spartacus hottie Brett Tucker, who will come on board for an episode, won’t pose a serious threat. (But for more on his guest spot, see our chat with Katic below:) READ FULL STORY
Castle and Beckett are getting a visit from Scotland Yard!
Spartacus: Vengeance actor Brett Tucker is set to team up with the pair for an upcoming episode this season, playing Simon Hunt, a hottie detective from Scotland Yard who is trying to find the murderer who killed his friend’s daughter. He will appear in episode 20 of this season, set to air some time in April.
Tucker currently appears in Starz’s swords-and-sandals action series as Varinius and last year appeared in two episodes of jungle drama Off the Map.
Castle airs Mondays on ABC, with last night’s episode drawing around 9.1 million viewers.
Sophia Turner (Jennifer Beals) has been tasked with saving the United States from going to war, and she intends to fulfill her mission. But she’ll have to do so alongside a very important person from her past: Richard Castle.
Tonight’s episode of Castle finds Castle (Nathan Fillion) coming face-to-face with his former flame as the team works to stop an event from occurring that would “plunge the U.S. into world war,” says Beals. But her arrival also stirs up emotions for Beckett (Stana Katic) after she learns that Turner was Castle’s first muse and he shadowed her while creating another character, Clara Strike. The distinction, however, is that Castle has gone through significant changes in the years since they were in a relationship, shares Beals.
“You will see how he’s changed since his time with Sophia and his time with Beckett,” she says. “You also get more information about this past…[but] there’s definitely a ticking clock. It’s about getting the work done.”
And prepping for the role required a bit of work on Beals’s part as well, but she was coy about the details. “There were other things I had to prepare for that I can’t reveal to you because they have to do with the plot and what happens later. But I had to study international conspiracy theory. I was like ‘Wow. I guess that’s where Google comes in.'”
Overall, she says, “It was fun to bring something to the show that would maybe complicate the Becket-Castle relationship a little bit and give Beckett more information and give the audience more information about Castle.”
The two-part episode begins tonight and the conclusion will air next week. Beals warns, “The second episode is out of control…My apologies to all the fans who are huge Beckett fans. I apologize for any type of anxiety the character might cause you.”
Happy Friday, roomies.
It’s that time of the week again, and by that, I mean it’s time for you to feast your eyes on the last important task I do before spending 48 hours eating various cereals on my couch. (I’m so glamorous.)
Hope everyone finds a little something in here they like but if you don’t, make sure you’re sending me your questions. Address is same as always: email@example.com. I also except them on Twitter. (Click the button below to join the party.) See you next week!
‘NCIS': A LOOK AHEAD WITH EP GARY GLASBERG
There’s been a lot of self-reflection happening on NCIS as of late. (In fact, the show’s entire 200th episode was dedicated to a storyline that found Gibbs on a personal journey unlike any we’d ever seen.) And as you may have guessed, this is all no coincidence. In fact, EP Gary Glasberg tells me that all the threads we’ve seen thus far will weave together for this year’s season finale. Vague enough for you? Maybe he can help elaborate: “There’s definitely a theme to this season about decisions and [about] the roads that people have taken and choices in their lives,” he says. “I hope that has come through; it certainly did in the 200th, But I think that’s been the case — whether we’re talking about realizations, like Abby and her brother or a lot of the things that have come up with Tony and Ziva as well.” READ FULL STORY
EW has already shared a few details about this week’s episode of Castle, which finds Castle and Beckett investigating the death of a famous dog trainer, and as a result, stuck babysitting a homeless pooch. (The episode also guest-stars White Collar-One Tree Hill alum Hilarie Burton.) And, as this exclusive clip shows, it leads to a bit of a tender moment. (HAND HOLDING!)
I won’t continue because if I say more, I’ll spoil the moment. But click below if your curiosity is piqued. READ FULL STORY
New favorites and cult classics anchor the 2012 PaleyFest lineup, which was announced today.
The annual event, which takes place in Los Angeles, will bring together the casts of Community (who is attending for the third year), American Horror Story, Once Upon a Time, Castle, The Vampire Diaries, Mad Men and Revenge, to name a few.
Last year, the event hosted casts from The Walking Dead, White Collar, and a reunion of the actors from Freaks & Geeks and Undeclared.
A new challenge will unleash new emotions between Castle and Beckett in the second half of ABC’s faultlessly fun crime drama, but it’s probably less romantic than you might think it is. (Or is it?)
While chatting about what Castle fans can expect from the next batch of new episodes, executive producer Andrew Marlowe said the show’s reality TV-themed episode, which will feature a guest spot from White Collar and One Tree Hill alum Hilarie Burton, will find the partners in a situation they’ve never experienced before: sharing custody of a four-legged friend. “There’s some fun to be had with the Castle-Beckett relationship [because] our victim is a celebrity dog-show host and famous dog trainer. And in the aftermath of his death, his beloved golden retriever is left family-less. So Castle and Beckett get to enjoy sharing custody of the dog and I think it brings out stuff in their relationship that’s a lot of fun,” Marlowe said. READ FULL STORY
