ABC’s ‘Castle’ season 5 spoilers: Now with a guest from the soap world

Castle” is racking up the guest stars for its upcoming fifth season, and we now know who else is going to be joining such people as Jack Coleman (“Heroes”) and Caroline Lagerfelt (“Gossip Girl”) on the show at some point moving forward.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, former “All My Children” and “General Hospital” star Tamara Braun will be appearing on fifth episode of the upcoming season as┬áNatalia Roosevelt, a member of the city council in the Hamptons who was seen with a victim in a homicide investigation. Castle and Beckett are going to be in the area trying to have a romantic getaway — but whenever you have two characters trying to do something like this on a murder mystery show, you can pretty much assume that they are going to get saddled trying to solve a case instead.

Outside of the fact that she owns a bar, there’s not much known about Braun’s character just yet — but given that she is being described as “sexy,” you have to wonder whether or not that will cause any friction at all in the new relationship between Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic’s characters. If this does end up being the case, it will end up being the second time this season that we see it happen — after all, Jodi Lyn O’Keefe is going to be playing a similar role in the second episode of the season. However, we have a hard time seeing Castle fooling around on Beckett so soon after they have gotten together.

What do you think bout this casting? Some of Braun’s other recent credits include “Necessary Roughness,” where she has played the sister to Callie Thorne’s Dani.
