Richard Castle Cameo in ‘MISSING”

RichardCastle's name made a cameo in Thursday nights episode of ABCs "Missing".

When Becca Winstone (Ashley Judd) and Dax Miller (Cliff Curtis) travel to Berlin, Germany to see Martin Newman we see Dax pick up Martin Newman's novel' Hall Of Mirrors and we see a comment from 'RichardCastle' on the back cover of it that says "The impresario of espionage has done it again. This is Newman at his finest!".

    I caught a glimpse of that when I first saw it, had to rerun it to make sure. Would you call that a ‘product placement’?

        ABC shows often reference other TV shows on the same network.
        I assume they do this both to keep the network happy, and also to be nice to their colleagues working on other shows, since its essentially a form of free advertising.

        I actually like it when they do this, since I find it amusing to imagine that several of their shows take place in the same fictional universe. (Especially since the plot of “Missing” seems like the kind of story Richard Castle would like.)

        Both directly & indirectly, Castle has referenced a bunch of ABC shows, like Dancing with the Stars, Once Upon a Time, and Pan Am at various moments on the show.

    I’m confused… lol It hasn’t aired yet, has it? Did it air in Canada already or something? :) Lucky devils!

    It’d be cool if they decided to connect the two shows. In a recent episode Castle was told that his dad was in the CIA and Newman is a former CIA agent and now an author of spy novels. It’d be interesting if it was revealed that Newman is Castle’s father. Over on CBS, they have had characters crossover into different series, most recently characters from NCIS: Los Angeles crossing over to Hawaii Five-0. In the past they’ve also had CSI crossover with different series, including Two and a Half Men. And Richard Belzer’s detective character has appeared in shows on all different networks. A crossover between Castle and Missing wouldn’t be too much of a stretch.

    Andrew and Terri know the producers of Missing. I think they’re friends. So I’d say that’s why there’s a little cross-promotion going on 😉 I like it hehe.
