Polaha’s recurring character is described as a foil for Beckett. He will be playing Caleb Brown, “an idealistic public defender whose criminal clients put him at odds with Beckett and the 12th Precinct.”

As TV Line points out, this lawyer character arrives at a time when Beckett is already dealing with a lot of tumult in her life – as she faces both her split with Castle as well as her dangerous search for the shadowy figure behind Bracken.

You may be familiar with Polaha from his stints on Backstrom, Stalker, Life Unexpected, or Ringer. It should be interesting to see his character interact with Captain Beckett and company later this season (assuming the show is still worth watching by then!).

Castle airs Monday nights at 10pm on ABC.
