Rule 5 Saturday - Time to Castle - Stana Katic

Today's lucky Rule 5 loser winner is Stana Katic, Canadian born actress currently playing the woman cop Kate Beckett,, romantic interest, and foil for the title character in Beacon Pictures and ABC Studios "Castle."  It's interesting how on TV cop shows it seems to be nearly mandatory for the immediate supervisor of the police to be women.  The only exception I can think of currently is Tom Selleck on "Blue Bloods", and you know he's a reactionary misogynist.

But I don't blame Stana for that (say, isn't that an anagram for Satan?), a girl in Hollywood has to take the jobs they offer.

Her name is Croatian Serb; her parents emigrated from Yugoslavia to Canada.  She grew up on both sides of the border, graduating High School in Illinois, and going to acting school in

I addition to Castle, she has played in "Heroes", "24", the bond film "Quantum of Solace" and a memorable role (at least to me) as the good, sexy vampire in The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice, a properly campy fantasy type flick.

Buddy TV likes her a lot. In 2009, 2010, 201, 2012 she ranked as their 24th, 39th, 1st, and 8th sexiest women.  Over rated?  I report, you decide.
