TVLine Exclusive: How Does This New Series Regular Fit In?

ABC’s Castle — if not the 12th precinct — will be adding to its ranks for Season 8.
TVLine has learned that the stalwart procedural is casting the role of Hayley, a quick-witted, free-spirited former LAPD cop who now works as a security specialist and is not afraid to cross lines to get things done.
The role being cast is a fractional series regular, meaning she would by no means appear in every episode. Specifically, Castle is eying African-American or Hispanic actresses in their late 20s to play the part.
For the full story on this new character, and another new character being added to the mix, visit TVLine.
