Castle Exclusive: Adrian Pasdar Plays FBI Hero

When an elusive terrorist cell threatens to “send a message” to New York City, ABC’s Castle will call in for backup from the Department of Homeland Security. And heading up that effort will be Adrian Pasdar, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Casting Scoop: Third Watch Vet Is Castle‘s Old Pal

Heroes‘ flying man will swoop in for sweeps as Eric Fallon, an FBI agent tasked with trying to track down and neutralize the threat that has the NYPD at full alert.

Akin to Dana Delany‘s own March 2010 Castle arc as a visiting FBI agent, Pasdar will be around for multiple episodes, appearing in an intense two-parter airing February 21 and 28. The obvious diff is that whereas Delany gave us a beautiful and tough-as-nails G-Woman, Pasdar’s fed will offer up a very special kind of handsome.

Soon after her Castle gig, Delany went on to land the lead in the new ABC drama Body Of Proof, premiering March 29.

Castle marks Pasdar’s first major TV role since Nathan Petrelli was truly and sincerely killed off of Heroes about a year ago, as the NBC series neared its finale.

So, Castle fans: Can Adrian Pasdar be your hero, baby?

  • I love Adrian Pasdar and Castle is sure to give him far better material then he was given on Heroes.

  • Heroes was the poorer after Nathan was killed by Sylar, so it will be great to see Adrian Pasdar on Castle. Also good he’s got a multiple episode arc too.

  • So I’m guessing this is what they meant when they said it would be an “exsplosive” spring.

  • Can’t stand Adrian Pasdar. ThinksCastle is too good for him, but as long as he doesn’t stay long, it will be OK…

  • I’ve never really watched “Castle” but will check it out now just to see Pasdar again. He was by far the best element on “Heroes.”

  • I’m kind of excited to see this. I also hope this might prompt ABC to sign Pasdar to an overall deal and offer him a drama series, or even an FBI spin-off.

  • Awesome News! Those episodes with Adrian will double Castle’s viewership, I’m sure – or maybe even triple :D

  • These episodes of Castle sound like it will much more serious than previous ones I’ve seen. For anyone who has NOT watched Castle, let me tell you, you are missing a real treat. The chemistry between Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic jumps off the screen; their characters have grown and gotten much closer than when they first started. If you don’t like getting into a series in the middle, you can go to go.abc.com, and click for the Castle site, where you watch episodes from the first season. I heartily recommend it!

  • This is fabulous news! I’ve been a big fan of the handsome Mr. Pasdar for a long long time. I’m also a huge fan of the Castle show so can’t wait to see the addition of this new character. Should make for some exciting viewing.

  • I really hope there’s a little spark between him and Beckett. That would be perfect. Love this guy. Anyone remember Mysterious Ways? He was awesome in that.
