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.

On your mark, get set, vote!

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

  17. Chez says:

    asking me to pick between Castle and Booth is like asking a mother to choose between her children. Let me see ruggedly handsome but wickedly naughty Castle, or ruggedly handsome but sweet Booth, I wouldn’t kick either of them out of bed for :), what the hell I’ll vote twice, or will I be a good girl and choose, no sorry I’ve never been a good anything.

  38. scifisiren says:

    I’m a lady who likes ladies, but even I would make an exception for ever-so-charming Castle.

  39. Sarah says:

    Castle or Booth!!!? So hard to choose. In the end I had to vote for Booth because of his military experience and super strong moral code. Can’t they take turns like they do on my TV?

  40. Larissa says:

    Booth I vote for booth

  41. caprica says:

    Booth is braver, more charming, more handsome and in better shape than Castle.
    Boreanaz is more accomplished, more versatile as an actor, director, producer, more charming, more handsome, in better shape than Fillion.
    As to Boreanaz cheating, just ask Tricia Cast (Battlestar Galactica) why she broke up with Fillion. You’ll find out Fillion is a cheater also, he just didn’t admit it publicly.

    • miro says:

      Sounds really objective, thanks for providing this insight.

      And by that Cast person you probably mean Tricia Helfer. I doubt either one of them ever spoke publicly about their break-up, and they’re still friends and talk about each other with great warmth. So I think you’re just fishing for dirt here with no info.

      Not to say that I am one of those who kick Boreanaz for his RL stuff, it’s nobody’s business and look at yourself, peeps! But trying to make Nathan Fillion look bad for the equality and out of spite is not nice of you…

  42. Arlene says:

    Can’t choose between David or Nathan. Both are HOT! Johnny Depp beats Victor. Victor does not come close to being a hottie! You should have picked someone else as competition.

  43. Helen says:

    Hard choice since they are both handsome. I vote for………………..

  44. Rashid Rasheed says:


  45. Tamara says:

    BOOTH BOOTH BOOTH! Love that man! No one can hold a candle to his sexiness!

  46. Ashley says:

    Booth all the way!

  47. Sharon says:

    Booth! Always!

  48. Dr HorrIble says:

    I vote for Captain Hammer corporate tool, umm I mean Rick Castle.

  49. Serena Kaye says:

    Well, Kate. Like I said, I don’t steal things that belong to someone else. I voted for Rick.
