This week on ABC’s Castle, it was a race against time as Beckett and McCord scrambled to track down the toxin thief also in possession of the antidote needed to save Rick. In the end, would Castle have any strength to help crack the case?
“Dreamworld” – Continuing from the season premiere episode, Beckett races against time to find a stolen toxin capable of killing tens of thousands of people. To make matters worse, Castle was exposed, leaving him with less than 24 hours to live.
24 alum Glenn Morshower has been tapped to guest-star in the second episode of Castle’s new season, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
Morshower will play Michael Reed, a former general who will stop at nothing to protect the secrets of his past. With Reed’s military connection, could he be involved in Washington, where Beckett (Stana Katic) was offered a job in the Season 5 finale?
Morshower, who recurred on 24 as Secret Service agent Aaron Pierce, most recently had a multi-episode arc on NBC’s Revolution.
Warren Christie won’t need special powers for his upcoming role on Castle, but they’d probably come in handy.
Christie, who last starred as hyperkinetic Cameron Hicks on Syfy’s Alphas, is set to guest star on the second episode of Castle‘s upcoming sixth season. He will play Brad Parker, a reporter with a penchant for uncovering stories that are deterimental to national security.
Christie, who was on Alphas until its cancellation in January, also recently made guest appearances on Arrow and King & Maxwell.
