Emmy winner John Larroquette, who wraps his three-episode CSI:NY arc Friday, says the same is definitely true for his character. Larroquette plays Manhattan Chief of Detectives Ted Carver, who first butted heads with Mac Taylor (Gary Sinise) over how to handle the media during a sniper case.

Is Castle's Latest Case Out of This World?

Castle

For once, Richard Castle might not be the nerdiest person at a crime scene.

On Monday's Castle, Beckett (Stana Katic) and Castle (Nathan Fillion) investigate a murder that could be out of this world. "We have a couple [crew members] on the show ... who are from The X-Files, and so in a lot of ways this was our chance to do our Castle version of an X-Files episode," creator-executive producer Andrew W. Marlowe tells TVGuide.com.

It all starts when the coroner determines that the victim died in a rare way. "We find a woman who's been killed due to explosive decompression," Marlowe says.

Oddly enough, each turn in the case lends some credence to Castle's theory.... read more

Michael Weatherly, NCIS

Michael Weatherly shares plenty of similarities with Tony DiNozzo, the character he has played for eight seasons on NCIS.
