'Firefly' Reunion Alert! Gina Torres Is Headed To 'Castle' And More Casting News

Posted: Updated:

Another "Firefly" reunion is happening: Gina Torres is joining Nathan Fillion on "Castle" at last!

According to TVLine, Torres is headed to the ABC drama as Samantha Foster, a "ruthless fashion mogul." On "Firefly," Torres played second-in-command to Fillion's Captain Mal Reynolds, and the reunion will likely be a treat for fans, since Torres wasn't on hand when the "Firefly" cast celebrated its 10th anniversary at Comic-Con this summer.

Torres, who has guest starred on "24" and "Alias," will appear in a February episode of the ABC series.
