Exclusive: Castle's Life Is In the Hands of Breaking Bad's Dean Norris

One Breaking Bad guy will attempt to thwart a whole band of bad guys when Dean Norris guest stars on ABC’s Castle this season, TVLine has learned exclusively.

As I previously reported in my Inside Line column, one of Season 4’s fall episodes will find Castle (played by Nathan Fillion) and his mother, Martha (Susan Sullivan), trapped inside a bank during a heist pulled off by a group of colorfully named robbers.

Norris will play the hostage negotiator who tries to defuse the situation, and get everyone out alive — while Beckett (Stana Katic) stands close by, wishing there were more she could do to help.

In addition to his compelling role as Breaking Bad‘s Hank, Norris can be seen this fall guest-starring on CSI: NY, as an Internal Affairs snoop looking into a shooting involving a member of Mac’s team.

Castle kicks off its new season this Monday at 10/9c.
