Adrian Pasdar has revealed details of his guest role on Castle.

The former Heroes star will appear in the show as a Homeland Security Agent who has to deal with a terrorist threat.

"We have to head off at the pass of what could be a detrimental, nasty echo of 9/11 to NYC," he told Entertainment Weekly.

"When you're dealing with such weighty subject matter - and some of my best friends are former FBI agents and first responders, so I have a responsibility, as do all Americans or any concerned citizen of the world - to protect the memory of the victims. That is, sort of in a nutshell, what the second episode is about."

Pasdar also revealed that his character not particularly pleasant but teased that viewers will find out why.

"There's a reveal that makes it all come together, why he is the way he is," he said. "The reveal in the second episode is one of the best-written reveals I've ever been a part of, and I've been a part of a few good ones. From Prophet to Heroes, there have been a few. But this ranks among them."

Castle airs on Mondays at 10/9c on ABC.
