In the episode, Fischler plays Leo Conrad, a mild mannered witness to a murder who Castle and Beckett take on the run to protect him from a 
team of ruthless gangsters who want him silenced.

Denison’s character, Mickey Dolan, is an enforcer with the McElroy 
crime family who was friends with the victim until recently when they
 had a falling out.

The ep, cheekily titled “After Hours,” is set to air on Nov. 19.

  • I’m a little tired of seeing these bit part Lost “vets”. If they didn’t crash in the pilot episode, they aren’t a “vet.” ;)

      • And I love Tony Denison by the way. It was fun to see him with Michael Weatherly on Major Crimes and now he’ll be on Castle with Nathan Fillion. 3 of my favorites, great :)

        • It will be fun to watch Tony Denison other than Lt. Flynn (The Closer, Major Crimes)
          I enjoy wayching him in action!

    • I keep saying the same thing about “vets” from other shows. Especially when it comes to movie casting for things like Hunger Games, Twilight and all things super heroes related. I’m all for giving viewers a frame of reference as to were they might have seen a particular actor but the media needs to knock it off.Especially shows that haven’t been on in this century. And if I have to hear one more comparasion to anything Seinfeld, Friends or Grey Anatomy related, that noise you hear in the background is the sound of tv crashing out the second story window.

  • I had to look up his character name from LA Noire (Micky Cohen) – made me do a double take!

  • I was totally hoping the person they took on the run was going to be a little kid. But this sounds good too!

  • When I saw Patrick Fischler’s photo
    I remembered him from Nash Bridges years ago. :-)

  • Patrick Fischler is the ugliest man on TV. I cringe every time I watch an episode of Lost or Mad Men that has him in it.

    • That is so completely inappropriate and downright nasty.

    • And I’m sure you’re a real looker.

      • Again. That is totally inappropriate and horrendously nasty.
