Preview: Firefly’s Gina Torres on Castle


As we reported in December, Castle will soon be host to another Firefly cast reunion. Gina Torres, currently starring on Suits, will always be the Zoe to Nathan Fillion’s Mal. And now she will be guest starring in the Castle episode airing February 11, called Reality Star Struck. A few preview clips have been released that give us a sneak peak at Torres’ character, a fashionista Housewives-esque a reality show personality. And unlike their Firefly days, she may be standing against her captain this time.

This clip from HuffPost TV shows Fillion and Torres’ unexpected meetup.

Another clip shows an interrogation scene between Torres’ Samantha Foster and detective Kate Beckett, played by Stana Katic.

Torres is not the first Firefly cast member to guest star on Castle. The man they call Jayne, Adam Baldwin, had a memorable turn in Season 4. There’s still plenty of the Firefly crew left and they’ve made no secret about the fact that they’d all love to work together again. Who should be the next to pay Captain Tightpants a visit? What type of character and story would you like to see the other cast members take on? Let us know in comments!
