It sounds like Jewel Staite, who portrayed Kaylee Frye in Firefly, will play an important part in Castle Season 8: Episode 20! She’s going to be playing a frustrated director!
Castle is famous for featuring cameos from a number of actors who appeared alongside Nathan Fillion’s Captain Malcolm Reynolds in Joss Whedon’s cult sci-fi TV show Firefly. We all know that the show was cancelled way before its time, and it’s still a source of much pain for many of us Firefly fans out there, but there’s always Castle. Thankfully Nathan Fillion has kept close ties with all of his co-stars and loves having them cameo on his ABC crime drama show. A few months ago we learned that Jewel Staite, a.k.a. Kaylee from Firefly, is going to get to cameo on the show. She now joins an impressive list of Serenity crew members who have appeared on Castle. Adam Baldwin, Gina Torres, and most recently Summer Glau, have all cameoed on Castle, and now it’s Staite’s turn and we’re sure that she’ll knock it out of the park.
According to TVLine, in Episode 20, titled “Much Ado About Murder”: “A mediocre Hollywood actor headlining a Broadway play turns up dead; Jewel Staite (Firefly) plays the frustrated director and Castle’s mom Martha is featured heavily.” That all sounds very promising indeed, and more of Martha is always a good thing. Yet it has to be said that Staite’s cameo is the most exciting aspect of this episode. Castle’s been going through some tough times recently: with Stana Katic and Tamala Jones’ contracts not being renewed for Season 9, and the constant rumors that ABC will cancel Castle… However, we still hold out hope for a ninth season, and we really would love to see Alan Tudyk get a chance to appear alongside Nathan Fillion’s Castle. Our dream would be that the whole Firefly gang comes back together for one final incredible episode of Castle and just lets it all unfold. Now that would be the ending Castle deserves, a big celebration. Are you looking forward to seeing Jewel Staite’s Castle cameo?
