    I have to agree Klover .. :) can’t help but laugh when she tells the audience in the studio so applaud for castle and how she was reluctant to approach Stana on the awards show… CLASSIC Caskett fan when she says she’s rooting for Castle and Beckett.

    I love when people from the show business say they love the show ! I want to hear more of that kind of stuff !

  7. She’s always adorable – she’d be a great foil for Castle! Do it! Do it!

  8. Do we think there could be a potential “guest appearance” in the future??? grin

  9. Thanks for posting the video clip, Admin.  That was adorable.  Stana thought so too:

  10. I love that she’s such a shipper! :D (Too bad she didn’t pronounce Stana’s name correctly… oh well…)

    Thanks Admin. That was funny! grin Always nice to see that someone loves Castle (and promotes it through that!)

    I vote for a guest appearance of Christina Applegate on Castle, too. grin

    And the NBC/Leno people put it up on their own YouTube account… Secret Castle fan at NBC Studios, perhaps? Or maybe it was just too cute to not put up? lol

  15. For those of you in the US (it’s probably restricted) both parts of the interview are up.

    Or maybe they know that Castle fans will come and see it and they will get more visits on their website.

    I just looked at the interview clips, and they edited out the Castle portion…

    Here’s the missing piece: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v…..sCT80DbedI

  18. hmm… weird the video didn’t post in the first post, it should have, it’s in the article that’s linked to the first post though

  19. I’d bet C.Applegate has her twitter account full of Castle’s fans feedbacks !! smile

  20. I’m not sure if people have seen this clip, but Jay Leno ask Christina Applegate what her favorite TV show is and she turned into a babbling fangirl over “Castle”
    http://youtu.be/ysCT80DbedI

  21. That’s a really good segment and I’d certainly go along with a guest spot for Christina. I love seeing anyone gush over Castle and it’s great to see celebrities talking about the show in the same way we do! grin

    I didn’t know that so I just googled Kelly Clarkson and Castle and read some of her previous tweets about Castle! What else can be said but the girl has excellent taste!! grin

  24. Christina Applegate is too cute for words! I can’t believe how much she gushed about loving Castle. She loves the show. She loves Stana Katic. She loves Caskett. bow

  25. musiclover says:

    I love how she said she was nervous about meeting Stana and then told her I really ship you and Castle. Like others have said she should guest star on Castle maybe playing a childhood friend for Beckett perhaps or a family member, like a cousin,

  26. She’s got great taste! fangirl

  27. catluver aka Donna says:

    I don’t remember the exact words but my favorite part is right at the end when Jay said, ‘You know they aren’t real don’t you” and she said ” It is, Jay”.

  28. That was so cute! Katic’s right, she is adorable. I remember Stana tweeting about that (women in film/tv??) awards night around the time it happened – earlier this year? It seemed like it was mutual admiration and that they were both appreciative of the chance to meet and network.
    It was a little disconcerting when Christina A used the word ‘root’ as it can have a completely different meaning in Australia, which makes the discussion on the post 5.02 thread about sexual innuendo even funnier.

  29. Sirpostalot says:

    That was great!

     

    Would be a bit funny if she did get a guest appearance as a huge Castle/Heat fan girl.

  30. Okay, I’ve always like Christina but now I LOVE HER!! Okay? If she raises a flag I will go to battle with her. :D
    How cool was that? Talking up an actress and a show on another network, heee. I would have loved to have seen the looks on the NBC executives. LOL.

    YES. She should be on the show and be a big time Rook/Heat shipper. grin

    I sent a Tweet to Andrew and Terri suggesting this idea.  If it happens, you can claim the source of inspiration! thumbsup

  33. Awesome clip! I knew there was a reason why I liked her. Caskett shipper all the way! love

    Umm… We gotta be careful about sending show ideas to the writers. I, too, wouldn’t mind seeing Christina A. do a guest spot, but… If I remember right, they cannot take suggestions from fans, no matter how good they are.

  36. Too cute for words!  What was the problem with the audience?  If I had been there, I would have screamed when she said “Castle”!  kiss

    There’s a sign that flashes “applause” when the producers want the audience to applaud something – Miss Applegate’s spontaneous mention of Castle on a rival network caught everyone by surprise – the audience was waiting for permission.blush

    I’m guessing someone got in trouble after it aired. grin

  40. I would be surprised if NBC deleted it because Castle is not on NBC, it would be more because Christina is not on Castle and Castle is not on NBC. Nathan and Stana have both appeared on talk shows on other networks in the past and they talk about Castle. Also, don’t they go over questions and responses a bit before taping? It shouldn’t have been a surprise. Then again, I know nothing!

  41. Jay didn’t sound suprised with her answer grin

  42. She deserves to guest star on the show :)

  43. Oh… I love Christina now… she was just adorable!!!

  44. Kathy1948 says:

    Castle has this effect on people, even other actors and celebrities. Why didn’t Castle get an Emmy Award? Injustice. Stana Katic has grown so much in the role of Beckett and this once unknown actress has shown that she has some serious acting skills and can play opposite someone like Nathan Fillion and not be overshadowed by him. She is his equal in every way and they are so perfect together. I love it when an unknown actor/actress gets an opportunity like this (similar to Nathan Fillion with Firefly) and the world gets to see a new face with so much talent. Stana Katic is getting her first taste of “being famous”.

  45. Awesome interview. I know how she feels. grin

    They often do a pre-interview before the show goes on air… they get a list of a few stories / interesting things that the guest could talk about and then the host asks the guest about a few of them.  There is no way they didn’t know what her answer was going to be.

    Why not? We are not professional writers claiming some intellectual property on an idea (not that we could because Castle itself is copyrighted) and they do listen to fans and want their reactions.

    They include Firefly references for crying out loud.. if that’s not fan service i don’t know what is.

    Anyway.. it’s always nice to see other celebrities showing glimpses into their real private life and tell what they have in common with us and that they can still get starstruck by colleagues when they enjoy their work.

    Copyright is a lot more complicated than that. If a fans sends in ideas and similar ideas find their way into episodes, they may sue the studio for copyright infringement (to get a cut of the earnings). To avoid a whole lot of messy situations, the studios will forbid any writer from reading fanfics or actively looking at fan suggestions. Every kind of exposure can of course not be averted.

    As far as copyright is concerned, it does not matter if one is a professional or not.

    Also, the fact that the show itself is copyrighted doesn’t make a difference either. You can still make your own copyrighted work using others’ copyrighted works. See here or here (in German), if your interested in the topic. smile

    The Firefly references are a completely different matter. They just allude to scenes from that show without taking any ideas from that show.

    On the other hand, I’m fairly sure casting choices are not copyrightable. (Fun fact, ‘copyrightable’ is one of the longest words in the English language using each letter only once. rolleyes)

    Exactly grin We have so many crazy long words in German crazy I’m afraid we love nouns too much grin

  52. So hilarious! Love her! It’s so sweet that she went all nervous-giddy fan girl for Stana. We all would.

  53. Okay, I feel like I’ve been on another planet! Recently discovered Castle — love, love, love it! Have been Nathan Fillion fan since One Life to Live. Firefly was terrific!
    I’ve not previously purchased boxed sets of any television series, but Castle & Firefly are worth it. The show is not just well acted & well written; I’m with Christine Applegate — it’s real…….
    The only problem with great TV, especially with ‘grass roots’ support like Castle, is that some arbitrary ratings figures dictate the future of shows regardless of an obviously solid fan base, including support in those oh-so-important demogaphic groups.
    Oh, well — please count me among the number of crazy Castle fans hoping for just one more season, one season at a time ;>}

  54. I’ve have previously purchased boxed sets of many television series, but Castle is mine, they are my friends. I have a weekly window into their lives, adventures and passion. I’m with Christina Applegate the show is not just well written the whole crew is committed and the main characters {Nathan & Stana} plus, the excellent actors who are great in their own rights.

    PLUS Christina is right IT’S REAL!

    (Firefly is excellent and I have all episodes on DVD’s. Again Nathan ‘Rocks’ but in the genre of SYFI.)
