'Off the Map' doc heading to 'Castle' -- EXCLUSIVE

Jason-GeorgeImage Credit: Mario Perez/ABC Hottie doctor Jason George is ditching the South American jungle and heading stateside for a guest spot on Castle.

In the episode, titled “To Love and Die in L.A.,” Beckett heads to Los Angeles to track down the killer of her former mentor on the force. Meanwhile, Castle tags along to help his partner and also takes the opportunity to stop by the set of Heat Wave.

George plays an entrepreneur who meets the pair along the way, and he proves “to be a key character in solving their new case,” a source reveals. Previously announced guest star Dominic Purcell (Prison Break) will also appear, playing a movie producer.

Happy about this sorta-not-really crossover news, Castle/OTM fans?
