Has Beckett met her match on Castle?

Life UneXpected and Ringer alum Kris Polaha has landed a recurring role on the drama this season, TVLine reports. The actor will play Caleb Brown, a public defender who will go toe-to-toe with Captain Beckett (Stana Katic) by mere virtue of his job and the criminals he represents.

But might their clashing lead to something more? Beckett is separated from Castle (Nathan Fillion) now and she sure could use some help tracking down Bracken's partner, no?

Polaha, who starred on Backstrom last season, will make his debut later this fall. Castle airs Mondays at 10/9c on ABC.
