Move over Dr. Lanie Parish (Tamala Jones) as there seems to be a new girl catching the eye of Detective Javier Esposito (Jon Huertas) on Castle. Asian beauty Kelly Hu, who just guest starred in an episode of the new CW hit series ‘Arrow’, will be making an appearance in the popular ABC drama.
According to a report at Zap2It, Hu will appear in the January 14 episode entitled “Death Gone Crazy” as Scarlet Jones, the bodyguard of a notorious adult video kingpin named Beau Randolph. It would seem she fails at her job as her employer ends up murdered, bringing Castle and Beckett into the investigation, and attracting Esposito’s attention.
Among Hu’s TV credits include ‘Nash Bridges’, ‘Martial Law’, ‘CSI: NY’, ‘Army Wives’, ‘Hawaii Five-0′ and ‘The Vampire Diaries’. She has also appeared in the box office films ‘The Scorpion King’, ‘Cradle to the Grave’ and ‘X2′. In addition, she has lent her voice to animated series such as ‘Phineas and Ferb’ as well as ‘Young Justice’.
The next new episode of ‘Castle’ will air tonight Monday, November 12 on ABC at 10/9c.
