Exclusive First Look: Meet Castle's New Beckett!

ABC’s Castle will turn up the Heat this winter when viewers meet the star of the movie version of Rick’s Heat Wave novel — and we’ve got your first look at the new brunette beauty on the crime scene.

Starting January 3, That ’70s Show alumna Laura Prepon will be guest-starring as Natalie Rhodes, the actress bringing Nikki Heat to the big screen.

Seeing as how the fictional Nikki is modeled on Beckett, it will be interesting to see if Miss Rhodes’ mimicry of Castle’s muse might stir a little something within the handsome mystery writer.

For anyone missing Prepon’s blonde locks, here’s a pic of her Castle character arriving for her first meeting with Rick and Kate, pre-“transformation”:

    Castle and becket should get married their love and care appears tobe pure. If u need a twist beckett is pregnant and one of his old flings pop up with allegations of him being a father of another child.

    What have I missed? Where will the “old” Beckett be????? I saw this person play her part following Kate around and did a good job for what she was doing……getting a feel of the real Beckett ….. I do hope you are kidding about this becoming a regular? Just an actress play like as a regular….. Sorry doesn’t’ seem worth watching.

    I won’t watch this movie – I have grown too fond of the TV Castle cast.
