Kate Meets Castle's Dad
James Brolin returns as Jackson Hunt, the estranged dad of Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion), on the Jan. 13 episode of ABC's Castle. He meets his son's fiancée, Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), but for most of the episode, she's unaware that the CIA operative is her future father-in-law (he keeps his identity secret to protect his undercover work). "That introduction comes later and is far more awkward," says Fillion.
While Modern Family is still contemplating an offer from Australia to come film an episode Down Under, the ABC comedy is planning a trip closer to its L.A. home base.

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland
Here's an exclusive clip from Thursday's episode of Once Upon A Time in Wonderland, which finds Alice and Will, the Knave, confronting a fire-breathing dragon. The scene was shot on location outside Vancouver at Alouette Lake in Golden Ears National Park. "I love being out here," the show's Alice, Sophie Lowe, told me on set. "We had to start out here at 4 a.m. when it was still pitch dark, but when the sun came out we discovered how beautiful it is. Even though we have to deal with rain and planes, I definitely enjoy location shoots more than our green screen scenes."
During breaks in filming, the cast set out on their own to explore the park's wonders. "I'm from the middle of England with grey skies and no water or sun, so I'm always wandering off into Vancouver's forests," says Michael Socha (Knave Will). "I'm just glad I haven't bumped into one of those bloody bears yet!"
Once Upon a Time in Wonderland airs Thursdays at 8/7c on ABC.
