Just how much did Adrian Pasdar relish his role as no-nonsense FBI Agent Mark Fallon on the two-part CASTLE event kicking off this Monday? So much that he’d love nothing more than to reprise the part on a weekly basis!
“I got a very nice letter back from [CASTLE creator] Andrew Marlowe the other day. I said, ‘Hey how about we do a season ender with Fallon, sort of a backdoor pilot spinoff?” reveals the actor. “Just kind of as a joke, I sent it off saying what a great time I had, and I got a very nice letter saying, ‘Well it’s not too far off from what we’re thinking about’.”
But could the former HEROES star who first grabbed our attention for his starring role in the dark-before-dark-was-cool drama PROFIT soon be king of his own proverbial CASTLE?
“Who knows where these things go?” he says. “You never know! I was very happy to have been a part of what happened on that show, and I would be the first one in line to say yes to working with those people again.”
Not surprisingly, the feeling is mutual. Added executive producer Andrew Marlowe when asked to comment on the potential of a CASTLE spin-off, “We here at Castle were very impressed by Adrian’s tremendous presence both on and off the screen, and feel the character of Agent Fallon could easily become the centerpiece of a terrific series. I leave any further decisions to the network, but, regardless, I would do a show with Adrian in a heartbeat.”
