A television fixture since the early ’90s, the 50-year-old actress is probably best known for playing Beverly Barnes on HBO’s “The Larry Sanders Show” and the ex-wife to “24” president David Palmer (Dennis Haysbert).
Jerald will play Victoria “Iron” Gates, a by-the-book, career-minded cop who has little experience actually working in the field. Her desire to move up the chain of command will see her being harsher on the team than Montgomery — and likely not thinking too fondly of the special Castle/Beckett relationship.
We’ll see exactly how that plays out when “Castle” returns to ABC, Monday, Sept. 19, at 10:00 p.m. ET.
