TV Line reports that Hilarie Burton (White Collar, One Tree Hill) has signed for a guest appearance as Kay Cappuccio, who's "achieved significant fame and fortune without possessing any discernible skill or talent” and “is famous mostly for being famous" (cough, Kim Kardashian).
But as the original casting notice said, Kay is a much more complex woman than she seems on the surface. Is Castle trying to redeem the Kim K's of the world?
Burton will show up on screen in Episode 13, “An Embarrassment of Bitches,” set to air this Monday, January 23, 2012 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC. Are you excited to see her on the show? And do you think Castle is ripping from the gossip headlines? Tell us on our Castle Facebook page.
