Exclusive: Castle Hit Man Max Martini Exacts Revenge at ABC

Late Castle assassin Max Martini is being reborn as a private eye.

The actor, whose arc as Castle hit man Hal Lockwood came to a permanent end in the show’s May finale, is joining the cast of ABC’s new fall drama Revenge in a recurring role, sources confirm to TVLine exclusively.

Martini — best known to TV audiences as Master Sergeant MacDonald James “Mack” Gerhardt on CBS’ The Unit — will play Frank Saunders, a rugged, pragmatic private investigator hired by the show’s wealthy patriarch, Conrad Grayson (The Tudors‘ Henry Czerny).

Revenge stars Brothers & Sisters‘ Emily VanCamp as a mysterious woman who moves to the Hamptons to ruin the Grayson clan for past misdeeds. It premieres Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 10/9c.

    Max will also guest star on this Monday night’s episode of “Rizzoli and Isles” as a cop who’s daughter is kidnapped.

    He was great on “Castle” by the way!

  2. Jason says:

    Good actor…macho guy to the max!

  3. Tego Livi says:

    Really sexy (in a “real man” way), plus he holds citizenship in 3 countries, and “Angel” from the Rockford Files is his stepfather–you’d think he’d be more famous than he is.

  4. Meri says:

    He was terrific on Castle, so I think I will check him out on Revenge!

  5. Andrea says:

    This is definitely going on my TV schedule! Yay for Max! Loved him on The Unit.

  6. Cosimab says:

    First saw him on DaVinci’s Inquest.

  7. GeekGirl13 says:

    I just got done saying I wanted him cast in something for this fall! Revenge wouldn’t have been my first choice but now I’ll actually be checking it out.

  8. Lyn says:

    He was riveting on “The Unit” — or I should say IS, because I still watch the reruns. Not sure this new show sounds interesting, but at least it’s not about cops, doctors or lawyers. . . .

  9. George says:

    He was in the “Exit Strategy” pilot. After not getting picked up. Fox allowed the pilot to be retooled for a mid season replacement. The Retooled pilot was also rejected by Fox and is now officially dead.

    I don’t think there is a lot to be optimistic about Revenge. Who know ABC core audience is supposedly filled affluent women and Revenge has a female lead. So it possible it could gain a following.

    Hey, he was good in “The Great Raid” as well!

  11. GeeMa says:

    Loved him in The Unit. Got tired of him playing “the bad guy”, even though I thought he did a great job in Castle. Loved him in FlashPoint. Glad he’s going to be on TV on a fairly regular basis.

  12. H says:

    Loved him on the Unit! Still sad about that show being cancelled.
    And then he showed up on Lie to Me! Which was a pleasant surprise. And then he was on Castle, which I LOVED. And then he was on an episode of Flashpoint where he was also great.
    Nice to see him on TV again!

    This is GOOD NEWS for fans of this naturally talented artist. No one deserves a good shot like this better than Max Martini. He is one of the hardest working professionals in the industry.

    I am still upset that The Unit was cancelled! Max excelled in the role of Mack! I will check out this new show, just to see Max of course!!
