Castle – Season 6 – Casting News – Frances Fisher to Guest
Castle has cast Titanic star Frances Fisher in a Devil Wears Prada-themed episode that will revisit Kate Beckett’s (Stana Katic) past as a model.
“The episode has a little Devil Wears Prada feel to it with an Anna Wintour type character,” reveals executive producer Andrew Marlowe, referencing the notorious Vogue editor-in-chief who inspired Meryl Streep’s icy Miranda Priestly film character. “In investigating the case, we discover that the Anna Wintour character, Matilda King, who runs this magazine, Modern Fashion, crossed paths with Beckett when she briefly flirted with a career as a model.”
Marlowe says he cast Fisher (whose credits include Eureka, The Shield and Touch) in the role because “she brings a regality to everything she does.”
The episode is slated to air on Jan. 27.
