Another ’24’ Alum to Guest-Star on ‘Castle’

Following Annie Wersching’s turn as the chilling Dr. Nieman, another familiar face from 24 will appear on an upcoming episode of the show.

TVLine reports that Reiko Aylesworth, best known as 24‘s Michelle Dessler, will be guest-starring on Castle in episode 18 of this season. She’ll be on the show with Desperate Housewives‘ Ricardo Chavira. Some minor plot spoilers for the episode follow:


According to TV Line,

Chavira will play Alex Lopez, a popular congressman whose life may in danger, while Aylesworth is playing his astute wife, Mia.

They both appear in Episode 18, when Detective Ryan — who it was established has been working side jobs — pulls some hours at his brother-in-law Frank’s private security company, which has been charged with protective Congressman Lopez.

The episode will be Ryan-centric.

Since Michelle Dessler was one of my favorite characters on 24, I’m always thrilled to see Reiko Aylesworth pop up on any show I watch. Sadly, it’s unlikely her on-screen husband Carlos Bernard, who was a memorable guest star in Castle‘s season 5, will recur in the ep as well.

Castle returns with new episodes starting March 16.
