Ruben Santiago-Hudson, an Image Award nominee for his role in TV's Their Eyes Were Watching God, has joined ABC's drama pilot Castle, says the Reporter.

A "comedic procedural" (proceduromedy?) about a mystery novelist ( Firefly's Nathan Fillion) who helps the cops solve crimes, Castle finds Santiago-Hudson playing a police chief infuriated every step of the way as that dang mystery novelist sticks his nose in police business and solves crimes for them. - MWM
