ABC's Castle will be seeing a visit from an ex-One Tree Hill star who will play a rather familiar sounding role. Hilarie Burton will join the cast as a reality TV star who has reached great heights of fame thanks in large part to her looks and bubbly personality. Sound like any recently divorced reality TV stars whose name starts with “K” you can think of?<
Now you know him as DEA Agent and Brother-in-Law, Hank Schrader on AMC's Breaking Bad. If you don't know Dean Norris from one of the best series on television than you'll probably recognize him as 'that guy' from many projects, whether as a State Trooper in Little Miss Sunshine, a SWAT Team Leader in Terminator 2 or a sweet but overprotective father in Disney's PROM (yep). Now he's going to be 'that guy' again in an upcoming episode of Castle.
Two lovely ladies will be appearing on a special episode of ABC's light-hearted, police procedural Castle, and it just so happens, oddly enough, that they both have a history working with lead Nathan Fillion. On the series Fillion plays the titular crime-novelist who is paired with an actual detective, played by the lovely Stana Katic, in order to alleviate a block and find more material.
It happened! Nathan Fillion will be in a comic book adaptation... well, in a way. Yes, his character's character is getting his own comic book. Marvel and ABC are collaborating on a comic book adaptation NOT of the show Castle, but of Derrick Storm, the character that made Fillion's Castle famous.
Since they’re the network’s top drama and comedy respectively among the younger, money-making crowd, there would have been quite an uproar among fans if ABC even waited the whole season to renew, let along actually passed
Billy Baldwin, who recently appeared in a recurring role on NBC’s Parenthood, is sticking around the small screen as he’s set to appear in The CW’s Gossip Girl for a couple of episodes.
We’re at the midway point of August and while that might mean the countdown to cooler weather and the return to school or work has already begun for some, it also means we’re just a few weeks away from the start of the new TV season. Up ahead is the primetime schedule for the Fall 2010 season.
Nathan Fillion probably had a handful of reasons to be at Comic Con. Among them was certainly the appearance he made at the Castle panel. Check out this video, which features clips from the panel, as well as some brief interviews with the cast of the series.
Just a few weeks ago, the fate of ABC's Nathan Fillion-lead series was in doubt. Suddenly, ratings surged and now the network has given the nod for a third season of Castle. A lot of that momentum can be handed to its much more impressive lead-in these past two weeks: Dancing with the Stars
Upfront week continues with ABC’s announcement of their Fall 2009 primetime schedule. I sat looking at the release ABC sent out, preparing myself for the onslaught of vids and pics we’ll be getting to you as the day goes on, and wondered if I cared about anything.
It looks like ABC is set to add a handful of new series to their midseason primetime line-up. The network has just greenlit three dramas and two comedies, including a series that will star Nathan “Captain Hammer” Fillion as well as Rob Thomas’ latest TV project (Veronica Mars fans rejoice!).
With the big network upfronts headed this way, we should expect to hear some pilot news over the next couple of weeks. This includes casting rumors. The latest news is that Nathan Fillion and Alyssa Milano are both in negotiations for new ABC pilots.
