Castle, of course, based Heat on his crime-fighting partner, Kate Beckett. So it should be interesting to see how he responds to the woman who will be playing the woman that is based on the woman he loves. Know what we mean?

Prepon most recently appeared on episodes of How I Met Your Mother and House.

Castle Quotes

I can't help it if you got off by putting things in my mouth.

Beckett

Castle: They're going to kill you Kate, and if you don't care about that, please think about how that's going to affect the people who love you. You really want to put your dad through that? What about Josh?
Beckett: And what about you Rick?
Castle: Well of course I don't want anything to happen to you. I'm your partner, I'm your friend.
Beckett: Is that what we are?
Castle: You know what? I don't know what we are. We kiss and then we never talk about it. We nearly die frozen in each others arms, but we never talk about it. So no, I got no clue what we are. I know I don't want to see you throw your life away.
