‘Castle’ Episode Guide (Dec. 1): Beloved 1980s Movie Star Found Murdered

“Last Action Hero” (12/01/14) – When the star of Castle’s favorite ’80’s action movie is mysteriously murdered, Castle and Beckett delve into the victim’s secret past and pursue his killer with help from a team of aging action heroes.

Guest starring in this episode are Krista Allen as Naomi Duvray, Ted McGinley as Brock Harmon.

“Last Action Hero” was written by Christine Roum and directed by Paul Holahan.

When viewers first met famous mystery novelist Richard Castle he was creatively blocked. But when the NYPD questioned him in connection with a series of murders staged to imitate crime scenes from his books, Castle found inspiration in NYPD Detective Kate Beckett.

Once that initial case was solved, Castle and Beckett continued to investigate strange homicides in New York, combining Castle’s writer intuition and Beckett’s creative detective work. Over the years they did more than just solve crimes though — they fell in love, started dating and then finally decided to get married.

“Castle” stars Nathan Fillion as Richard Castle, Stana Katic as NYPD Detective Kate Beckett, Tamala Jones as Medical Examiner Lanie Parish, Jon Huertas as NYPD Detective Javier Esposito, Seamus Dever as NYPD Detective Kevin Ryan, Penny Johnson Jerald as NYPD Captain Victoria Gates, Molly Quinn as Alexis Castle with Susan Sullivan as Martha Rodgers.

“Castle” is produced by ABC Studios. The executive producers are Andrew Marlowe (creator), David Amann (showrunner), Rob Bowman, Armyan Bernstein, Rob Hanning and Terri Edda Miller.
