ABC’s Castle continues to fortify its ranks for a rousing Season 6 launch.
TVLine has learned exclusively that TV vet Yancey Arias has been cast as Carl Villante, the head of an elite investigative unit who clashes with both Beckett and Castle during the working of a high-stakes case.
Arias will appear in the first two episodes of Season 6, which premieres Monday, Sept. 23 at 10/9c.
Earlier this month, House alum Lisa Edelstein booked a multi-episode arc as Rachel McCord, a tough and highly skilled Federal Investigator who plays a vital role in Beckett’s decisions about her future.
Arias, after cut his teeth on One Life to Live back in the day, has since guested or costarred on series such as Charmed, Kingpin, The Division, Thief, NBC’s short-lived Knight Rider reboot and Revenge (playing Senator Tom Kingsly).
