'Firefly', 'Castle' Costume Designers Are on Twitter

Shawna Trpcic and Luke Reichle, who have both worked as costume designers on various TV shows of the past few years, have something else very important in common: They’ve both made Nathan Fillion look good. Trpcic was responsible for the gritty and romantic clothing on Joss Whedon‘s Firefly, where she squeezed Fillion into a pair of famously tight pants. As Castle‘s costume designer from the start, Reichle now outfits Fillion in more expensive suits. More »

Crushable Book Review: ‘Naked Heat’ by Rick Castle from ‘Castle’

Crushable Book Review: 'Naked Heat' by Rick Castle from 'Castle'

I have to admit: I’m still shocked that ABC would go to such lengths for their promotional material that they would have someone ghostwrite two entire books — Naked Heat and Heat Wave –so they could be “authored” by the fictional character, Rick Castle.

Yes that’s right: In preparation for the new season of Castle, ABC has released two crime novels, Heat Wave and Naked Heat, written by the protagonist of the show, Rick Castle (played by the extremely hunky Nathan Fillion.) That seems a little…excessive, don’t you think? Who wants to read a whole book written by an imaginary person? And we pity the poor ghostwriter whose job it was to make a shitty crime novel written by said imaginary person, just to have it distributed as swag to entertainment outlets. More »
