Now here is what we are talking about! Clever, Clever  News out today from TVLine.com is that ABC’s hit primetime series, Castle starring former One Life to Live star, Nathan Fillion is planning a  special episode in homage to Fillion’s daytime roots.

In an episode titled, “One Life to Lose,” Beckett and Castle will delve into the murder of a soap opera scribe. According to  TVLine, “ As they work the case, watch for multiple stars from ABC’s own sudsers to make appearances (though probably not as themselves but fictional thespians). ”  

Also as part of the episode, fans of Fillion’s days as Joey Buchanan on OLTL are said to expect at least one nod in reference to his time on Llanview.  March 21st is the tentative airdate for the soap-related story.

Castle has boasted many a soap star on its guest-star roster including:  A Martinez, Sarah Joy Brown, Melody Thomas Scott  and Rick Hearst.  Castle has also recently been picked for renewal by the network.

So what ABC Daytime stars would you like to see cross paths with Beckett and Castle?  Let us know.

    I hope Erika Slezak shows up, since she played Nathan Fillion’s mother on OLTL. That would be a great way to celebrate her 40th anniversary on OLTL.
