Trivia

The actress that plays Ryan's wife in the show, Juliana Dever, is Ryan's (Seamus Dever) real life wife.
Detective Kevin Ryan (Seamus Dever) can be seen carrying a copy of one of Castle's books at least once in every episode.
When Stana Katic first met Nathan Fillion, she had just gotten out of hair and makeup for the final callback between her and one other actress, and realized she was wearing a blouse that was too long. She asked for a pair of scissors, saw Nathan Fillion getting coffee, and greeted him. He asked if she wanted to run lines, and she replied, "No, but speaking of lines, can you cut a straight line?" To which he replied "I can try." And so he cut her blouse shorter for her. The producers saw this and she got the part.
According to Andrew W. Marlowe, Nathan Fillion read with 125 actresses to find the perfect Beckett.
In the Nikki Heat novels, Richard Castle writes about the shadowing of Detective Heat by a writer by the name of Jameson Rook. In chess, "castle" and "rook" are interchangeable names for the same piece. To begin with, Castle's name was a parody of the name of the real best-selling novelist 'Stephen King', whose surname is also a chess piece.
Often, Detective Beckett can be seen drinking from a coffee mug that reads "Innocent Bystander".
This show has a close association with the Whedonverse in that many actors from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997) have been featured (including Marc Blucas, Ethan Erickson, Leonard Roberts, Bailey Chase and D.B. Woodside). The creators also insert several allusions to the TV series Firefly (2002) via in-jokes and other references. In the episode "Vampire Weekend", Nathan Fillion starts the episode by appearing in his "Firefly" costume.
Most people notice the prominent in-jokes/references to Nathan Fillion's previous TV series Firefly (2002) however, there is another, lesser known recurring reference: Whenever the subject of comic books comes up, Beckett expresses an admiration for the works of comic book writer/artist Frank Miller. This is most likely a subtle recurring in-joke/reference to the fact that Stana Katic, who plays Beckett, previously appeared in Frank Miller's directorial debut The Spirit (2008).
In the recurring intro Castle compares his and Beckett's relationship to "Turner & Hooch". Scott Paulin, who plays Jim Beckett (Kate Beckett's father) plays a role in "Turner & Hooch".
Richard Castle's apartment is the same set as was used for the main character's (Mick's) apartment in the short lived series Moonlight (2007).
Martha's beau Chet has only been seen in one outdated photograph. He has never been on screen as an adult.
