ABC’s Castle keeps getting it right by constantly keeping it fresh and next week’s brand new film noir episode that takes us back in a time machine to the 1940’s is no exception. Entitled The Blue Butterfly, fans will get to follow novelist Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and NYPD Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), as they investigate the killing of a treasure hunter. In true Castle-style, there is an ominous twist when they discover that the current case is linked to a mysterious homicide from 1947 that involved a hard-nosed private detective. Of course with Castle on the case, all involved are lured into his theory that the only way in which to solve this present-day murder is to solve the mystery from the past. Through stylized flashbacks with Castle as the private eye and Beckett as a femme fatale, the 1947 case is resurrected.
Cast member Tamala Jones (Medical Examiner, Lanie Parish) speaks about her character’s 1947 alter-ego as well as this most special of episodes that she is calling her all-time favorite. “We had the best time ever making this one! This is my personal favorite and everyone is just going to love it!” Excited that Mark Pellegrino (Lost, Supernatural, The Closer) is guest starring as Tom Dempsey, she says of his performance, “He plays a mean gangster that owns the nightclub that my character, Betsy, sings in.” Also guest starring in this episode are Patrick Cassidy as Clyde Belasco, Chad Everett as Jerry Maddox, Ellen Geer as Viola Maddox and Darin Toonder as Frankie.
Finally there is a reason to love Mondays and that reason is ABC’s hit show Castle. With three very successful seasons under their belts, this show simply continues to get better with each passing episode. Monday January 9th is one very special episode, Till Death Do Us Part, which fans have been waiting for since last season because someone in this brilliantly cast ensemble is entering into wedded bliss.
According to Vulture, Spider-Man director Sam Raimi and Bill Block, who produced District 9, are in negotiations with Warner Bros to bring to life a new film tentatively titled EDF (which stands for Earth Defense Force). Raimi, at this point, is not set to direct the picture which still lacks a large portion of it’s staff. Air Force One writer Andrew Marlowe has however already penned a script for the picture, which Blocks‘s QED International is co-financing.
