Castle's Castle Battles Bones' Booth, Plus Alias vs. Jump Street as 'Cop Crush-Off' Continues

We’ve reached the Round of 16 in our Ultimate Law-Enforcement Crushes Bracket Tournament, where a pair of cheeky-but-dashing crime-solvers square off, and a gray-haired agent goes head-to-head with a babyfaced undercover cop.

No matter your preference, it’s time to sit down and vote in the polls below, then alert your friends and fellow TV junkies to do the same! As part of our single-elimination competition, only eight law-enforcing hunks will advance to the quarterfinals.

‘Cop Crushes’ Round 2 Ends With Dexter vs. Criminal Minds, Cold Case vs. Third Watch

Every afternoon over the next few weeks, we’ll launch another set of faceoffs that will test the strength of your respective character crushes. So make sure the right choice is made by heading down to our polls to vote for your favorites (Round 3 voting will be open for 48 hours), and hit the comments to justify your picks.

Eventually, our battle will boil down to a finale that pits the ultimate old-school crime-fighter against the ultimate modern-day hero. (Their female counterparts will have their later this month.)

Oh, and if you’re interested in the matchups we’ve got planned for the coming weeks, CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT THE ENTIRE 64-PLAYER BRACKET (then click again for a zoomed-in view), and sign up to follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV.

          • Booth! He’s taken bullets for Brennan, killed for her, gotten fired for her. I loved how he dealt with the gang leader who put a hit on Brennan– Aggressive!Booth shoved the barrel of his gun into the guy’s mouth and was prepared to blow his brains out. Such a hot scene.

        • I have to agree it has to be Booth but the baby faced Johnny Depp was a past favorite way before David hit the screen but it’s got to be Booth For all time.

    • OMG, I could never choose between David Boreanaz and Nathan Fillion! My two all-time favorite male actors! They’ve both come such a long way, and are more good-looking than ever, and are both hilarious!

      Comment by Karen – November 10, 2011 07:24 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I couldn’t choose, either… I love them both and they are my two favorite shows… But I’m a little in love with Malcolm Reynolds which tips the scale in Nathan’s favor a little bit… I was never an Angel fan…

      • Hi!
        I am a Braz(s)ilian fan.
        In other seasons, I would vote for a draw.
        But in 2011, I can only say that I vote for Boreanaz, Bones he’s sensational. Deschanel to be overcome.
        I’m hoping that one day all Americans know the sectors of Bras(z)il, in addition to our series, series and soap operas.

          • I had to vote for him…the man sure knows how to kiss!!!! And Detective Beckett, it’s a good thing you’re so transparent about your feelings for him, otherwise I might have made an exception to my “no stealing things that belong to others” rule.

    • I’ve always had a thing for Victor Garber, ever since the early days of Alias. He’s just such a a badass. I like that he and Jennifer Garner are still close. He seems like a great person. Let’s face it Jack Bristow would have broken Johnny Depp’s face without hesitation. I feel like I need to go watch some Alias now.

    Comment by Steph – November 9, 2011 11:18 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Other way around for me… I used to love love love BONES. Then I started watching CASTLE, and even though it took some time to get used to, nothing compares for me <3. To me it's just subtly better in everything… each seperate catergory is close, but CASTLE ends up winning every time, which means in total it end up being exponentially better then BONES.
      (I do love Tamara and TJ… but then again I also love Jon and Seamus)
      Castle is the more likeable charater, IMO, so he gets my vote :)

  • Castle all the way! Booth loses points for loving Bones, whom I can’t stand. Now, if it was Angel, that would be a different story…

    I feel bad for Victor Garber, whom I love. Most people will vote for Depp, not the character he played way back then.

      • Bones has Asperger’s. As someone with this condition, I can attest that it is tough to relate to others, that emotions and jokes aren’t always obvious–and for me, being touched isn’t something I like. Her character is one of the best portrayals of the condition–Reid on Criminal Minds is another Aspie portrayed well.

        • Gretchen, I have it, too, I do believe, although I have never been formally diagnosed. And I do indeed agree with you that those two characters illustrate some of the problems. Sheldon Cooper on The Big Bang Theory is another.

          I have always had a sincere appreciation for Vulcans, Lisa. I have often explained myself to folks — imagine you are talking to Mr. Spock.

      • I’m glad I’m not the only one who sees very big similarities between a Bones and Castle storylines but anything to do with Bones will always get my vote hands down. Booth no contest.

        I enjoy Castle for what it is and because I love Nathan (still sad about firefly) but to me it doesn’t compare.

        Comment by Louise – November 9, 2011 08:29 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • That’s funny because I love Bones (the character). Now Beckett on the other hand, she drives me nuts. I love Castle, but Beckett is just annoying.

        As for Castle-Booth matchup, in the end my vote went to Booth. How I made my decision: in the most recent episodes of both shows I found myself crushing on Booth much more than Castle. Now, if this poll had been taken last year…. perhaps I would have voted differently. What can I say?

        Apparently I’m fickle, or they’re just both great crush-worthy characters.

        • omg i feel the exact same way; you think bones would annoy me because she is like socially awkward but that is what makes it funny but yeah Beckett just annoys me; i like castle but darn beckett, and i voted for booth

          • Bones is a woman whose lack of social savvy is fascinating, and it is cute to watch her. I like the way dear Booth deals with her.

            Becket is arrogant and often treats Castle mean. Why does Best-Guy-Ever Castle like her? He deserves someone who is yes confident and yes smart, but also KIND.

        • Hey, this poll is between Castle and Booth. NOT Beckett and Bones. So stop freaking pulling the ladies into this. They do NOT deserve it. I’m just saying…

      • There’s NO similarities between Castle and Bones. They’re two different shows and I can say that as a former die-hard fan of Bones, I KNOW both shows.
        I got tired of Bones because of how Hart Hanson began to treat everything as rubbish and the mistake of bringing in Hannah, while B&B’s year apart was to be alone and then for B&B to come back and get toegether then. Plus I hate the whole ‘coma dream’. Ugh!
        I adore how Castle is managed, because the creators will never mess with the fans and the show.
        That’s just me and my opinions. Deal with it.

      • Have you even watched Castle? I am a fan of both Bones and Castle; I can assure you Castle is NOT a copy of Bones (thanks God; speak about how to ruin the show). And, for the record, Castle is way better show than Bones. Which you would agree if you’d watched both of the shows. I’m sick of people who watch only one of the two mentioned shows and then judge the other.

        Comment by mtb – November 11, 2011 10:55 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • That is ridiculous. They’re completely different shows. Have you actually watched Castle? Following your reasoning if Castle is a copy of Bones then Bones is a copy of X-Files, which is ALSO not true… ¬¬
        They have the similarities most crime procedural shows with a female and male leads have, that’s all.

  • Seriously!? Spy Daddy against Johnny Depp?! I mean Depp is one of the hottest men ever, but Spy Daddy just KILLS it as a character. Gotta go with Alias on this one.

    And I’m sorry, but Mal will kick Angel’s whiny ass every time, whether they have moved on to other shows or not.

    Comment by LB – November 9, 2011 11:21 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I agree with you on so many levels on both counts. First of all, Mal was a true hero, Angel was forced into heroism (I was always a Spike girl and will always defend that he was the real interesting vampire in Buffy/Angel). Could you imagine Jack Bristow vs Tommy Hanson in a fight? It would last about three seconds, two of which were Jack getting ready to kick some ass.

      • Angel beat up Fillion’s character in “Buffy”. HA!
        Ergo, Boreanaz for the win.

        • Technically Buffy beat up Nathan Fillion’s character and Angel hit him once or twice. That fight was all Buffy. Angel just stood by and said smarmy things.

      • Nobody forced Angel to do anything! He chose to help Buffy just like he chose to go to LA and continued to fight on his own. He was helping the hopeless (for free, at that) months before Doyle, and later Cordelia, became his link to the PTB. Angel fought for his redemption and he fought for his soul in far more interesting ways than Spike ever did. He made hard choices, had to live with the consequences of his decisions/actions, and he made plenty of sacrifices. Only someone completely biased against his character could say Angel was anything but a true hero.

        As for who’s better, Angel or Mal, I can’t really comment on that because I never watched Firefly, nor do I want to. This doesn’t matter at all, however, seeing as how this is a poll about Castle and Booth and just like I didn’t watch Firefly, I don’t watch Castle, so my vote was for Booth all the way.

  • Castle vs. Booth – I had to go with Booth but it was close.

    If it was David Boreanaz vs Nathan Fillion – It would have been Fillion.

    • hahaha I completely agree with this comment. so true.

      booth > castle
      boreanaz < fillion

    • I was torn but ultimately my vote had to go to be Booth. Now if we were voting for people instead of characters then I would have chosen Nathan Fillon.

  • Don’t get me wrong, I do love Nathan Fillion, but I have loved David Boreanaz for 14 years now. And Seeley Booth is the ultimate representation to me of a MAN. He wins hands down in my book.

  • I’m impressed… no one made an Angel vs. Caleb comment? Well, except me (sorry about that)

    Comment by MV – November 9, 2011 11:29 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I think Caleb won the fight against Angel. Angel had to hide behind Buffy so he wouldn’t get his head ripped off. Caleb was a great bad guy. Stone cold, are you ready to finish this? BIT**?!

      Comment by Well – November 9, 2011 11:42 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Angel beat up Caleb. Go watch the episode. Don’t twist it to your own liking. Like it or not, Angel than Buffy kicked Caleb’s ass: FACT!

        Comment by jack – November 9, 2011 03:05 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Angel didn’t hide behind Buffy. He let Buffy take care of Caleb herself because he understood it was her fight. It was out of respect for her that he stepped back, not fear or the lack of strength/ability to take care of Caleb himself. If you watch the episode again, maybe without any bias, you’ll notice that.

And Alyssa, me too with the 14 years of loving – I can still remember swooning the first time I saw the glorious Angel fill my screen watching the pilot to Buffy when I was a wee 12 year old!! Now I am 25 and he still makes me swoon, as Booth!!!! No contest for me, I love Castle but David B is my longest ever crush!!! lol. And the second bracket is so easy – Spy Daddy!!! Depp just doesn’t do it for me, and I don’t even remember what ever show he was in, never heard of it til this tourney hahaha xxxxx

      • Thank you. Someone sane in this world. I hope girls grow to learn that it’s not all about the looks. And I would choose Castle on that matter too. More to love and hug and be swept off your feet.
        And for those saying he’s not a cop, I believe he’ll get one someday. At least some training.

        Comment by Jolie – November 11, 2011 02:49 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I completely agree. Nathan Fillion is a much better actor then David Boreanaz. And in my opinion, Castle is a more interesting character then Booth and has developed very nicely as a character over the span of the show.

      • Why do we always need a fandom war?
        Now, please don’t tell me that Booth doesn’t have IQ!
        This poll is totally unfair. Castle’s not a cop at all…

        Comment by sassy – November 9, 2011 02:58 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I never claimed Booth doesn’t have IQ, but there can’t be any debate that Castle is bit smarter, and more original, heck Booth’s funky socks was Bone’s idea, because up to that point he was a plain ol’ G-man. As for Castle not being a cop, neither is Victor Garbor, but these characters are all vaguely in the same genre.

          Comment by seattlemary – November 10, 2011 08:22 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • PEOPLE PEOPLE PEOPLE! Don’t you realize that Booth’s not a cop either? There is a difference between police and FBI, and Booth is on the government side of things.

      Comment by Emily – November 11, 2011 10:29 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • The poll says CRIME FIGHTER, not COP. So if this competition was between Beckett and Brennan then Brennan would be the only possible winner? :P Brennan is a crime fighter too and she’s not a cop. The same goes for Castle.

  • I adore me some Castle but c’mon guys it’s ANGEL! The original and ONLY vampire with a soul.

    ((Spike doesn’t count, he’s the same with or without a soul.))

    If it were Captain Mal VS Angel. Now that would be even harder!

      Comment by gah – November 9, 2011 03:16 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • What does “fat” Angel have to do with anything? This isn’t a poll about Angel. And BTW, Angel was “fat” because DB had a busted knee and then had to have knee surgery. Have you seen the man lately? His body is just as good as it was during his early Buffy days and that was almost 15 years ago. Hell, his body might even be better now. The man is sexy.

      And either way, this is a poll about Booth, who is an awesome character. He’s sweet, charming, funny, handsome and a complete bad ass on top of all that. The guy is practically perfect.
