The veteran actor will make appearances on both halves of Castle's annual two-parter (airing this year on February 18 and February 25 and guest-starring Dylan Walsh as an FBI agent), which will center on Rick and Kate looking into a plot to kidnap a businessman's daughter.

How will Castle's dad play into this storyline? It's unclear at the moment.

Will we be tuning in to this special Castle Season 5 episode to find out? What do you think?!?

Brolin has recently appeared on The Defenders, Psych and Law & Order: SVU and won an Emmy Award in 1970.

Great casting! I am looking forward to it! I hope it will be a two-part episode or that he becomes a recurring character.


wow! Kate might get a crush on dad!! what a handsome guy!


Great choice. I like both of these men and wish I could be in that show myself just to be with both of them.


Excellent casting. Going to be a fun ride. In Marlowe & Co we believe.


Yes, great casting, hope Kellu Hu return also...


Perfect Casting...Great Show!!!


great choice. He looks like the type of strong, attractive man that Martha would have liked. It will certainly be an interesting threesome, and I am looking forward to seeing how the writers incorporate his character.
