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?
