Jon Huertas: "Castle's" Secret Weapon

You have to watch those quiet ones. If most of what you know about Jon Huertas is his work on ABC's "Castle" as one of the hard-working and often pretty funny detectives on Kate Beckett's (Stana Katic's) team‘«Űand one of Rick Castle's (Nathan Fillion's) greatest fans‘«Űthen you have no idea just how talented this guy is.

He's an actor, a musician, a producer, and a Tweet monster. In fact, he had an online musical performance on StageIt "from a secret location" just last Sunday, and if we at "Se Fija!" had been on top of it, we would have let you know about it in advance (next time for sure‘«™and if anybody's got reviews or footage of the show, let us know!).

And still, we're just scratching the surface. His bio on StageIt gets it all right: "Huertas is a multifaceted actor and performer whose career spans television, film and music. His stand-out performance in the critically acclaimed HBO miniseries "Generation Kill" as Sgt. Tony "Poke" Espera offered a streetwise view of the U.S. Marines' 1st Recon Battalion in the first five weeks of the invasion on Iraq.

Huertas [has] kept busy during hiatus from Castle, filming the independent feature, "Stash House," [to be released in 2012]‘«™and found time to produce a top-notch short film, "After-School Special," by writer/director Neil LaBute, which premiered at the Palm Springs Film Festival. Recently he made his debut into the world of music with his single and video, "Sex is the Word‘«™" from the upcoming album Sex Tape."
