ABC’s hit crime drama CASTLE stars Nathan Fillion as Richard Castle a famous mystery novelist and divorced father raising his teenage daughter. The show has been successful for the past five season and all the cast has gotten along well. That all stopped this season and there is trouble brewing behind the scenes. Nathan who is the main character has been having male diva fits and tantrums. You know those actors and their egos! It seems Nathan is not pleased that his co-star Stana Katic who plays NYPD Detective Kate Beckett is getting too much attention and more importantly too much air time.
In season six of Castle we saw a change from the previous seasons, rather than the show being focused on Castle the show has been focusing on Stana’s character, Beckett. That got Nathan’s panties in a twist and he put the brakes on the situation fast. He knows how out-of-control things can get if you don’t stop them. According to the National Enquirer Nathan tore a strip off producers, had a nuclear meltdown and told them in no uncertain terms, “The name of the show is ‘Castle’ not ‘Beckett,’ now fix it!”
Nathan knows he is the star of the show and he makes sure everyone else knows it too. Nathan has won the war with producers, “He pulled the trump card of there being no series without him, and producers gave in.”
What do you think CDLers, do you think Nathan is a diva? Which character do you prefer on the show Castle or Beckett? Is there a Castle without Nathan? Let us know your thoughts!
