'Castle' Welcomes Frances Fisher as Fashion Guru


Frances Fisher


'Castle' may be well into its winter hiatus, but come 2014, fans can look forward to getting a glimpse into Kate Beckett's past long before she became an upstanding member of the NYPD. TVGuide reports that the ABC drama has cast Frances Fisher in a very 'Devil Wears Prada'-themed episode that will revisit Beckett's brief stint as a model.

"The episode has a little 'Devil Wears Prada' feel to it with an Anna Wintour type character," reveals executive producer Andrew Marlowe. "In investigating the case, we discover that the Anna Wintour character, Matilda King, who runs this magazine, 'Modern Fashion,' crossed paths with Beckett when she briefly flirted with a career as a model."

Marlowe also revealed the main reason he wanted Fisher for the part, stating, "she brings a regality to everything she does." This, as we know, is a very important quality to have when emulating a highly powerful fashion mogul. (We're looking at you, Miranda Priestly!)

The episode is slated to air on Jan. 27. Are you as excited as we suspect Rick Castle is to learn all about Beckett's modeling days? Will this Matilda King rival the many other fashion ice queens we've come to love/loathe throughout the years? Sound off on your thoughts in the comments below!

'Castle' airs Mondays at 10/9c on ABC.
