Another ‘Firefly’ Alum to Appear on ‘Castle’

It wasn’t that long ago that actor Adam Baldwin (‘Chuck’) made an appearance on Castle, joining his former ‘Firefly’ castmate Nathan Fillion on the hit ABC series.

Now news comes from the folks at TV Line that actress Gina Torres, who appeared as Fillion’s right-hand woman Zoe on the little Joss Whedon show that could, will be the next ‘Firefly’ alum to guest star on the ‘Castle’.

It is being reported that Torres will appear as Samantha Foster, a successful fashion mogul who “comes off as ruthless and fierce on a Real Housewives-esque reality show”. The kicker? She just might be even more “devious when the cameras aren’t rolling”. That should be a lot of fun, right?

The episode for which Torres will appear is entitled “Reality Star Struck” and is expected to air during February sweeps.

Since her days on ‘Firefly’, Torres has appeared in the short-lived shows ‘Huge’ and ‘Standoff’ and has made guest appearances on ‘Angel’, ’24’, ‘Alias’, ‘Pushing Daisies’, ‘FlashForward’, ‘Drop Dead Diva’, ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and ‘Gossip Girl’. She is currently a series regular on the USA Network series ‘Suits’.

‘Castle’, which is now in its 5th season, will return to ABC on Monday, January 7 at 10/9c.
