Consider this some major ABC synergy: TV Line reports that CASTLE — the net’s hit primetime crime drama starring Nathan Fillion (ex-Joey, ONE LIFE TO LIVE) as mystery novelist Richard Castle and Stana Katik as NYPD detective Kate Beckett — is planning an soap star-studded wink to Fillion’s daytime roots!
In the episode titled “One Life To Lose,” Castle and Beckett investigate the murder of a soap opera scribe. According to TV Line, multiple stars from ABC’s own daytime lineup will make appearances, likely as fictional actors on the soap-within-the-show. And Fillion fans can expect the star to make at least one nod to his run as OLTL’s Joey!
This new slew of guest stars will join a long list of current and former daytimers who have already stopped by CASTLE, including GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Andrea Bogart (Abby), who appears on the Monday, February 14 episode. Past guests have included Carrie Genzel (ex-Skye, AMC), Sarah Joy Brown (Aggie, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL; ex-Claudia, GH), Rick Hearst (Whip, B&B; ex-Ric, GH), Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) and A Martinez (Ramon, B&B; ex-Ray, OLTL; ex-Roy, GH).
“One Life To Lose” is tentatively scheduled to air on Monday, March 21, at 10:01 EST. Which ABC Daytime stars are you hoping to see on the episode? Tell us below!
