Fall TV Preview
Jon Huertas Castle Season 9

Castle's Jon Huertas Joins This Is Us

And the award for the first Castle cast member to nab a new TV gig since the ABC drama ended in May goes to… Jon Huertas, who will be part of NBC’s This Is Us when it debuts this fall.

The former Det. Javier Esposito will play Mike, co-worker and best friend of Milo Ventimiglia’s Jack, our sister site Deadline reports.

The upcoming drama follows a group of people — including Jack — who share the same birthday and whose paths “intertwine in curious ways” (per the official synopsis). The series also stars Mandy Moore (Red Band Society), Chrissy Metz (American Horror Story), Susan Kelechi Watson (The Blacklist), Sterling K. Brown (The People v. O.J. Simpson), Ron Cephas Jones (Mr. Robot) and Chris Sullivan (The Knick).

In addition to Castle, Huertas’ past TV jobs include roles on Without a Trace; Sabrina, the Teenage WitchThe Shield; Undressed and Moesha.

This Is Us premieres Tuesday, Sept. 20, at 10/9c, before moving to its regular 9 pm time slot starting Oct. 11.

    This is the one new show I’m really looking forward to this fall. As a huge Castle fan, I’m excited he’ll be on it!

  2. Andrea says:

    This premise reminds me of FOX’s Touch. Everything’s connected and all that.

  3. Courtney says:

    This has to be really exciting for Jon considering Castle was cancelled just two months ago. I can’t wait to watch this show

  4. Oceane says:

    I have never found him really good as an actor compared to the three other (NF, SK and SD)

  5. Mary says:

    This show looks fantastic, I can’t wait for it to start. Good job for him landing a part because I think it might be a keeper.

  6. Sarah says:

    Awesome addition! I was going to watch this anyway, but now I’m even more excited.

  7. Sarah Betar says:

    this new show sounds boring….

    This show looks really good. Can’t wait to watch and see what it’s all about.

    I wasn’t originally planning on watching the show but I will follow any and all Castle main cast to any new shows, so this now goes on the watch list.

    So happy to read Jon has a new show. Will be watching. So glad it’s not on ABC. Takes the worry off.
    I’m boycotting ABC theses days.

    “KooBuzz News” NEVER shows who or what they use to advertise a page with.
    So every time I see a page with “KooBuzz News” on it I am changing pages.

  14. DarkDefender says:

    Glad for Huertas, but This Is Us..Sounds like a diluted for network TV version of Sense8.

  15. Bella says:

    Good for Jon!

  16. georgee says:

    I wish you the best. As another huge Castle an you gave us a great 7 seasons, the 8th was just poorly ran and was bad. I hope your new network treats you a lot better than ABC did.I’ll be watching. Again Thank You for being apart of one of the greatest show every.

    It is just so sad hearing about all the Castle cast doing there own projects, which means there is no hope for a revival for Castle fans.

  18. Carol says:

    So happy to hear. i love this new show and look forward to its long run. Enjoyed “Espo” on Castle, my second favorite show ever.
