Celebrity Watchlist: Writer Michael Connelly's Love of Castle, Justified Is No Mystery

After appearing on Castle twice, it may not be that surprising that The Lincoln Lawyer writer Michael Connelly names the ABC drama as one of his favorite shows. But there's more to his love for the series than a recurring gig.

"It's a fantasy version of what I do!" Connelly tells TVGuide.com.

Indeed, the mystery author's most well-known work is his series featuring Detective Hieronymus "Harry" Bosch — not unlike Castle's Nikki Heat series.

Premise: Viewers were suckers for the tenacious, lollipop-loving bald Manhattan detective who had been introduced in the acclaimed 1973 TV-movie `The Marcus-Nelson Murders.' Filmed in New York, the series was gritty and authentic in its portrayal of cops and crime. Still charismatic and unconventional, with his cynicism and `Who loves ya, baby?' catchphrase intact, Kojak returned years later in a series of TV-movies. In 2005, Kojak was revived again, this time for a USA series starring Ving Rhames.
