Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) seems to be surrounded by women wherever he goes. Aside from his loving wife, mother and daughter, and Toks Olagundoye’s Hayley Vargas, who will be interacting with the main characters during the upcoming eighth season, it seems like another woman is dropping into Castle’s and Detective Kate Beckett’s (Stana Katic), in the person of a character named Rita, who will be portrayed by none other than John and Joan Cusack’s sister, Ann Cusack.
According to an exclusive report on TV Line, Cusack will be portraying a woman named Rita. She is a member of a top-secret organization who crosses paths with Kate. Later, they will learn that she does have a strange connection to Castle himself.
As she works for a top-secret organization, it makes one wonder if she has any connection to Castle’s CIA father, Jackson Hunt (James Brolin).
Also, according to TV Line, it seems like Castle’s daughter, Alexis, portrayed by Molly C. Quinn, is ready to leave the loft. They posted a picture of her shorter new haircut, which according to the report, is part of a “more adult makeover” that they are giving the character.
