and Castle, he didn’t sleep with every woman who walked by. “You have no idea how hard it is to love someone knowing they’re gonna break your heart,” she told Beckett and Castle. Castle thought she should have gone with the chef — the heart wants what it wants. Beckett said she understood why she played it safe: Some men make you feel alive, but if you know they’re gonna let you down in the end, why risk it? READ FULL STORYBy now, we all know that Beckett is going to have to make a decision between Castle and Demming (recurring guest star Michael Trucco), so I appreciate Castle‘s writers not playing coy. In between our usual moments of Rick adorableness (i.e. using liquid nitrogen to freeze fruits and vegetables, then dropping them to watch them shatter), the lines were drawn: The victim was a playboy chef who was trying to grow up so he could propose to his foster brother’s girlfriend, who was carrying his child. The girlfriend stayed with her boyfriend because unlike the chef
Variety, the plot centers on a journalist (Katic), who ends up on the run with a former lover across France. “Both characters experience long periods of carefree bliss and joy punctuated by brief moments of guilt and confusion with the final outcome left open to interpretation,” the trade reports.Hit TV shows do come with perks, like getting the chance to land starring movie roles during the hiatus. Castle‘s Stana Katic has nabbed the lead in For Lovers Only, a romance written by and co-starring Mark Polish and directed by his brother, Michael Polish (Twin Falls Idaho, Stay Cool). According to
Despite my problems with the Polish Brothers’ film The Astronaut Farmer (and an irrational distrust of movies with ambiguous endings — I feel cheated, and like the writer/director didn’t have the balls to make a decision), this news is happy. It sounds like another smart role for Katic. After getting to know her as Castle‘s homicide detective Kate Beckett, it would hurt if we were to see her play dumb. Or blonde. (I said it.) I want her strong, sexy, and brunette. Who’s with me?
confirmed to E! Online what Michael Trucco — who’s recurring as robbery detective Tom Demming, wooing Beckett, and making Castle realize his feelings for her — hinted to us last week: The second season of Castle will end on an emotional cliffhanger. “I would say it’s left open. There’s no indication either way,” Trucco said when asked if there was a chance of him returning in the fall. “What I can tell you is that obviously, there’s some decisions to be made in terms of these relationships. Things start to ramp up, get heightened, and a major wrench gets thrown into the works… Hearts will be aching, that’s all I can say.”Nathan Fillion has
Fillion seemed to give a more straight forward response when E! asked if Beckett and Castle will get together: “I believe that’s called jumping the shark. Moonlighting did a very valuable lesson there.”
I agree that Season 3 is too soon for Beckett and Castle to become a couple. I vote they give us a kiss, and she pulls back. That seems to be the MO lately: The Good Wife, Bones… You give us little something to get our hearts racing, but nothing that releases the sexual tension, nothing from which the characters can’t recover. Win-win.
What’s your vote? How far should Castle and Beckett go?
Castle returns with a new episode on May 3. To tide us over, we phoned Michael Trucco (Battlestar Galactica), who has the enviable/unenviable job of guest-starring as robbery detective Tom Demming, Beckett’s new love interest, for the remainder of the season before he heads to Vancouver to shoot his own series, USA’s new dramedy Facing Kate with Sarah Shahi (NBC’s Life, Showtime’s The L Word), in June. Note to future Castle guest stars: He reveals Nathan Fillion’s prank of choice.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Why did producers think you were the right man for the role?
Michael Trucco: I wasn’t totally familiar with the show, but I know in a situation like this, the dynamic between the two leads is very important. It’s not unlike the situation when I came in to Battlestar Galactica. There’s a lot of parallels there because my character [Anders] also came in to thwart the relationship between the two leads on that show, much in the same way this one is designed to throw a wrench in the works. It’s a tightrope for a character to come into a show, especially one that has such a strong fanbase as Castle, one that is gaining such traction, one that is based heavily on the potential relationship between Castle and Beckett. So I tried to make this character really likable, really believable, so that the audience can relate to Beckett and her potential attraction. If you come off as smarmy or sleazy, you end up being the bad guy in the end, then it just feels like the audience gets cheated. So, I wanted to put a real challenge in front of the characters and say, “We kinda like this guy.” At least that’s what I’m hoping for. READ FULL STORY
told EW. Good news for those of us who love seeing the 70-year-old actor, best known as a member of Christopher Guest’s movie troupe, in action — it’s the former these days. He guest stars on ABC’s Castle tonight (ABC, 10 p.m. EST), returns to ABC’s Modern Family on April 28, and drops by NBC’s Chuck on May 3.“I’ve found over the years that for some reason, people either are big fans and have to use me, or they don’t quite understand what I’m doing,” Fred Willard once
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: On Castle, you play the sidekick to a murdered late night host (Tom Bergeron). It’s actually a more serious role than we’re used to seeing you in. Looking back at your career, have there been other serious roles you’ve wanted, didn’t get, and still think you’d have done a great job with?
FRED WILLARD: No… I did a show called Lois & Clark, it was about Superman, years ago. They wanted someone to play the president of the United States. The plot was the president got kidnapped by a group, and they made a clone of him who was very irresponsible and silly. And they said, “We know Fred can do that. We’re not sure he can play the president.” So, I insisted on them letting me come in and read, and I knew I was the only one in my category who could do both parts. And of course, I did it well.

an EW Pop Culture Personality Test and asked him what piece of pop culture memorabilia from his childhood he wished he still had. His answer: “I had an Indiana Jones fedora that I loved. I don’t know what happened to it. I don’t know where it went. Wish I had it back. Whoever’s got it, you suck.” This episode should be a nice consolation.
