Castle - Season 8 - Nick Tarabay & Ellen Woglom to Guest

TVLine has confirmed that Spartacus vet Nick E. Tarabay will guest-star in an upcoming episode as Vasily Zhirov, an agent with the Russian Diplomatic Security Service.

“We get a little Red Heat action,” co-showrunner Alex Hawley told TVLine, referring to the 1988 culture-clash comedy that paired Jim Belushi with Arnold Schwarzenegger. “We have a diplomatic security agent from Russia who comes, because there is the death of a Russian national. He’s a big character.”

Californication alum Ellen Woglom meanwhile will appear in Episode 15, which takes us to “the police academy where Beckett was a star, back before she became a cop,” Hawley says. Woglom plays a cadet with whom Kate forms “a bit of a mentor relationship.”
