'Castle': Michael Trucco is about to get more fans

Castle-Trucco-StanaImage Credit: Karen Neal/ABCWhatever is happening in this photo, we’re in. It’s a shot from the April 19 episode of Castle in which Battlestar Galactica‘s Michael Trucco joins the show in a recurring role as robbery detective Tom Demming. We’re guessing he and Beckett (Stana Katic) hit it off after beating the crap out of each other. (Anyone else getting a Miss Congeniality flashback?) A second shot after the jump. Can’t wait to see how Castle (Nathan Fillion) handles this. Any guesses? READ FULL STORY

'Castle' recap: The curse of the Mayan king

Castle-Wrapped-DeathImage Credit: Adam Larkey/ABCLast year, I chatted with Nathan Fillion for 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. READ FULL STORY

Style Hunter: Kate Beckett's red dress on 'Castle'

castle-dressHot on the heels of its third season renewal, there’s most definitely love in the air for ABC’s Castle. So to continue the good vibes, Style Hunter has the answer to the question so many of you have been asking: Where can you find Kate Beckett’s sultry red dress? No, not this red dress, but the one-shoulder number the actress wore while investigating the murder of a man who had just returned from vacation. Who says crime-fighting and fashion don’t go together?

Beckett wore a Michael Kors draped dress, which is available for pre-order now and delivery beginning April 22 ($1,295; neimanmarcus.com). But with only one size left, we’ve selected a few similar styles that can help you get your lady in red on. Try La Petite S*****’s three-quarter length dress ($960; yoox.com), Laila Azhar’s cascade dress ($395; barneys.com) or Tadashi Shoji’s ruched jersey dress ($288; bloomingdales.com).

'Castle' renewed! Which show are you championing now?

castle-renewedImage Credit: Michael Desmond/ABCThe news continues to be good for Castle. After hitting a series high with last night’s conclusion of the two-part serial killer event (14.5 million viewers, the Alphabet’s best scripted performance in the time slot in 14 years), word came today that ABC has renewed the show for a 22-episode third season. That’s the power of Rick Castle/Nathan Fillion’s charm (they really are one in the same) and of a smart, sexy woman packing heat (Stana Katic). Let’s also give props to ABC for giving the show time to grow and a solid lead-in. (Cough, Better Off Ted, cough.)

Now the big question: Which show are you still championing for renewal? Make your passionate plea in the comments. And bookmark Michael Ausiello’s updated Renewal Scorecard.

'Castle' recap: Richard to the rescue!

Castle-Boom-DanaImage Credit: Danny Feld/ABCWho cares if the kind of massive blaze we saw at the end of Part 1 makes us sure that Beckett’s apartment would’ve been impenetrably engulfed in flames and that there’d be no wayshe would’ve survived the blast by running into her bathroom, closing the door, and jumping into her tub. We’re suckers for serial killer storylines, for Castle breaking down doors (I may actually have yelled “Castle!” at that moment), and for all the banter that followed. “It’s killing you, isn’t it?…. Having to wait this long to tell me how you banged down the door?” “You want me to start from the beginning?” READ FULL STORY

Nathan Fillion answers a Stupid Question about his lightsaber

Nathan-FillionImage Credit: Bob D'Amico/ABCFor the current issue of Entertainment Weekly, Castle star Nathan Fillion submitted to a round of Stupid Questions. Sample: Speaking about you, Joss Whedon once told EW, “I honestly believe he’s Harrison Ford, if given a shot.” What then, if I may ask, is in that shot glass? Answer: “I’m more of a girl shot — if it has the name of a soda pop or a slippery body part, that’s more of a shot for me.”

Due to space, we were unable to use our favorite of Fillion’s responses. Enjoy it below. Tune in tonight for the conclusion of the two-part “Castle event” (ABC, 10 p.m. EST). There’s still a serial killer on the loose.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You once admitted to keeping a lightsaber by your front door for home security. Who exactly were you expecting to break in — Jawas?

NATHAN FILLION: You know, you never know who’s going to break into your home when you have a lightsaber handy… I had a party one night, and I was escorting the last of my guests to her car, and I looked down the street, and about four or five houses down, somebody was outside whippin’ a lightsaber around, a purple one. I said, Ohmygod, this is perfect. So I ran back into my house, got my lightsaber, it’s blue, hid it behind my back, and casually walked down the street. This kid, I’d put him in, like, his early 20s, sees me, and tries to act cool playing with the lightsaber. I said, “Hey, how you doin’?” He’s like, “Oh, hey. Good, good.” I said, “Oh, matter of fact, I’ve been looking for you.” [Lightsaber noise] And I whip out my lightsaber, and he doesn’t even laugh. I’m like, “Man, I walked down the whole block for this bit. It’s funnier than that.” I did scare the crap out of a couple that was standing on the sidewalk chatting right there. Then it was worth it.

'Castle': The 'event' is worth the hype!

castleImage Credit: Richard Cartwright/ABCCastle has a lot to live up to after the way ABC has been promoting the two-part “event” that finds Beckett, Castle, and Federal Agent Jordan Shaw (guest star Dana Delany) chasing a serial killer who’s obsessed with Nikki Heat. Last night, Part 1 did.

Just as Castle got word that Heat Wave had been optioned for a film — James McAvoy would make a great Kevin Ryan — Beckett got a phone call from a man reporting a murder. One that he’d committed. They traced the call to Grand Central Station, where they found a dead man in a phone booth. Five shots to the chest. The bullets had letters pressed into them. Castle thought they spelled “Kinki,” but Beckett reordered them to “Nikki.” Another call: The man wanted Nikki to know the next part of his message was waiting at the Central Park Carousel. Another four slugs spelling “Will.” Enter the Feds led by Delany, looking younger than she gets to on Desperate Housewives. Castle was starstruck — she’s good at her job and has cool toys that he naturally wants to touch. Watching Beckett get jealous over losing Castle’s professional interest brought humor to the episode, as did everyone finding out that Nikki and the writer tailing her in Heat Wave have sex in Chapter 11. (Note to self: Next time I’m in the book store, find Heat Wave and skim Chapter 11.) READ FULL STORY

If you're not watching Nathan Fillion on 'Castle,' my Must List is superior to yours

I’m hopping on the Castle train. Make room!

I hadn’t been avoiding it on purpose; it just fell through the TV cracks. For that, I’m slightly ashamed. Thankfully, I don’t think I’m the only one late to the party. The last new episode attracted more than 10 million viewers, a commendable increase from the last few recent episodes. The cause? Not sure. But my non-scientific answer is Nathan Fillion.

”But Sandra,” you say, ”he’s been on Castle since the beginning.” Right you are, and we’ve always loved him here on PopWatch. But quite honestly, I’m experiencing a Nathan Fillion revival. Gone are the days I TV crushed on Johnny Donnelly (Fillion’s character on Two Guys a Girl and a Pizza Place), and I just stopped scribbling ”I <3 Captain Hammer” in my spiral notebook at EW.com meetings. Now, it’s all about Richard Castle. Fillion’s portrayal of a famous mystery novelist-turned-crime-solver is equal parts humor, adorable and charm. And my reaction is all parts love. It also helps that Fillion’s Twitter (@NathanFillion) keeps me entertained in between new episodes (as do Ausiello SPOILERS).

I have a long weekend of marathon-ing ahead of me before the new episode on Monday (check out a preview below), but in the meantime, tell me which underappreciated star is on your Must List this week. Is someone killing it on TV without proper kudos? What other books/movies/web sites are you loving?

Nathan Fillion is 'Super': Hey, you don't need to tell us!

Here at EW we can’t get enough of Nathan Fillion, star of Castle, and one of the nicest people ever to pop into our offices to just say hi (well, okay, to just say hi and pimp his show). Another big Fillion fan is writer-director James Gunn who cast the actor in his wildly underappreciated gorefest Slither and in the fantastic debut edition of his NSFW web series PG Porn (see video after the jump).

It now turns out that Gunn has recruited Fillion for his new movie, Super, a comedic take on the superhero film. The actor joins Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Liv Tyler, and Kevin Bacon. In addition, Gunn has cast Linda Cardellini, star of the also wildly underappreciated Grandma’s Boy (her character’s drunken, lewd, rendition of “Push It” is one of the marvels of the modern age — or the age of great dumb comedies anyhoo).
