A rep for ABC has confirmed that Joshua Bitton has will have a multi-episode arc in Season 6 as Grant “Sully” Sullivan, a new detective trying to prove himself at the 12th Precinct, as first reported by TVLine.
Bitton, who's appeared on "Private Practice," "Justified" and many more primetime hits, joins a long list of new faces in the expanding "Castle" cast: Former soap star Antonio Sabato Jr. will play Ramon Russo, an actor best known for his role on the fictional "Saved By The Bell"-esque '90s sitcom "2 Cool For School"; Yancey Arias will appear in the first two episodes of Season 6 as Carl Villante, the head of an elite investigative unit who butts heads with both Beckett (Stana Katic) and Castle (Nathan Fillion); "24" alum Glenn Morshower will play Michael Reed, a former general who's determined to protect the secrets of »

"Castle" Season 6 is still many weeks away, but news of upcoming episodes has begun to leak out. In addition to guest-star Lisa Edelstein ("House"), another guest plus an episode plot -- involving "Saved by the Bell"? -- have been revealed.
A troublesome reporter?
In episode 2 of the new season, Warren Christie will appear in the role of a reporter named Brad Parker, according to EW.com. Since Christie's character is described as being interested in uncovering scandals that might affect national security, does that mean that Beckett (Stana Katic) will be taking that new job in DC after all?

The ABC hit has added former "24" star Glenn Morshower for the second episode of the new season, TV Guide reports.

Alphas, Syfy’s two-season-old series about people with mental superpowers that doubled as a sneaky examination of mental illness, has been canceled. The news was first reported via tweets from Azita Ghanizada, Ryan Cartwright, and Warren Christie, who all starred in the show. It was confirmed later via a statement from Syfy itself. As recently as last week, the network was still in negotiations to bring back the show, presumably at a reduced budget, but it would seem those negotiations fell through (or were, perhaps, never all that serious to begin with). The show’s ratings fell 30 percent in »
I am disappointed. Today Syfy executives decided to not renew Alphas for a third season. It was a great show about people with different extraordinary abilities. Even I can say that it had its ups and downs, and that was reflected in its ratings as well, but at its core, the idea and the characters were great and the actors all really worked well together.
Here is the statement from Syfy:
“Syfy has decided not to renew Alphas for a third season. We’ve been proud to present this entertaining, high-quality series for two seasons and to work with an incredible ensemble of talented actors, producers and creatives as well as our partners at BermanBraun Television. We’d like to thank the show’s dedicated regular viewers for their tremendous support.”

Syfy's "Alphas" have officially solved their final case.

Starring David Strathairn, Ryan Cartwright, Warren Christie, Azita Ghanizada, Laura Mennell, Malik Yoba and Erin Way, "Alphas" followed a group of ordinary humans with extraordinary abilities as they solved high-level crimes thought to be perpetrated by others of their kind.
