Actress Jennifer Beals to Flash(dance) Her Badge on ‘Castle’

Jennifer Beals, best known for her breakout role in the 80’s classic film Flashdance, will guest star in an upcoming two-part February episode of Castle.

She will appear as Sophia Conrad, who, according to an exclusive at TV Guide, is “a smart, commanding and sexy CIA operative who will join Castle and Beckett in the search for a fellow CIA agent who has gone rogue and is now the key suspect in Castle and Beckett’s murder case”. But, it seems that Beckett will soon become distracted by a complicated history between her and Castle.

Beals is also known for her work on the Showtime series ‘The L Word’, a recurring role on the now defunct FOX series ‘Lie to Me’ and the recently cancelled ‘The Chicago Code’.

‘Castle’ will return with all new episodes of its fourth season on ABC starting on January 9 at 10/9c.
