On ABC, the first of a special two-part episode of Castle aired on Monday night, featuring guest star Adrian Pasdar as a tough-as-nails Homeland Security officer working with them on a bizarre case of a murdered taxi driver that leads to a potentially catastrophic nuclear weapon that could decimate New York City. As most TV viewers know, Adrian starred as Nathan Petrelli on the NBC series Heroes, but he also starred in the cult favorite series Profit, the show Mysterious Ways as well as appearances on Judging Amy and Desperate Housewives.

Lochlyn Munro

Also in that episode of Castle was actor Lochlyn Munro, who appeared as one of the taxi drivers who worked with the murdered man. Lochlyn has a long resume of TV and movies roles, including appearances on Charmed, CSI: NY, Without a Trace, NCIS, the box office movie Dracula 2000 and the made for TV movie Lucky 7.

In this week’s episode of NCIS, actress Beth Riesgraf – best known for her role in the TNT series Leverage – appeared as the ex-girlfriend of a dead marine for whom the team was investigating his bizarre murder. Her character (Maxine) was a female McGee in the sense that she loves role-playing video games which is why Maxine and McGee hit it off.

Jason Beghe

Also within that same NCIS episode was actor Jason Beghe. He played an employee from a security company working for the Pentagon, who was actually the bad guy. He was after a video game maker who was willing to unleash a massively powerful virus on all of the government’s computer databases. Jason starred in the short-lived series To Have & To Hold and he has also appeared in Everwood, American Dreams and Cane as well as episodes of Ghost Whisperer, Medium, Hawthorne and Castle.

Actor Brad Beyer showed up in the episode of NCIS: Los Angeles as an LAPD cop who was a suspect in the shooting of Officer Marty Deeks. Brad is best known for his role in the fan favorite Jericho, but he also appeared in Third Watch and episodes of CSI: NY, Without a Trace, Criminal Minds and the made for TV movie Backyard Wedding.

Rudolph Martin

Then on Thursday, actor Rudolf Martin appeared in the final episode of the CW series Nikita before the show went on a temporary break. Rudolf starred as one of Nikita’s outside contacts who provides her with perfect-looking yet falsified documents. He has appeared in All My Children, 24, NCIS, the pilot of Moonlight and the box office movies Swordfish and the made-for-TV movie Dark Prince: The True Story of Dracula.

Now that March is right around the corner many of the shows will be going into repeats so there may or may not be a lot of guest stars to highlight next week.
