Heroes Alum Jack Coleman to Appear on ‘Castle’


Actor Jack Coleman, best known for his role of Noah “Horn-Rimmed Glasses” Bennet on ‘Heroes’, will be making a showing up on Castle this fall.

According to a report at TV Line, Coleman will play a “well-liked U.S. Senator who finds himself in conflict with Det. Kate Beckett (series regular Stana Katic). The report doesn’t state how many episodes for which Coleman will appear, though.

Among his recent credits are a recurring role on ‘The Office’ as well as playing Caroline’s now deceased dad on ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and the short-lived ‘Kingdom Hospital’. He also appeared in the made-for-TV movies ‘Rock the House’, ‘Polar Storm’ and ‘Cow Belles’. His big claim to fame, of course, comes from his role in the perennial classic 80’s TV soap opera ‘Dynasty’.

‘Castle’ will be back on ABC for its fifth season this fall, returning to its Monday timeslot of 10/9c.
