Electric Dreams’ slot cars hit Prime Time TV! We’re very excited to have had our slot cars featured on the hit show “Castle” on ABC TV. Most of this show’s episode weaves around our slot cars, and they are seen up front and center!
Here a bit of the plot:
This episode, “Last Action Hero,”
After the star of Castle’s favorite ‘80s action movie is inexplicably murdered, he and Beckett investigate the victim’s secret past with help from a team of aging action heroes.
The case of the week is the murder, as mentioned above, of an aging 1980s action movie star, Lance DeLorca of the films “Hard Kill”. This gets Castle as giddy as a schoolgirl, as he grew up watching them. It was his chance to get in some bro time, he admits, since he was raised by a single mother.
Castle even gets to go on set as he and Beckett interview the dead action star’s old co-stars reunited for an Expendables style film. Castle shows off the films to Ryan and Esposito, introducing them to all the characters – including the man who played the villain in the big film starring the murder victim.
As he, Beckett, Ryan and Esposito weave their way through the case, Castle has some of his beliefs shattered as the murder victim is revealed to not have as much of a black ops background as he claimed – he was not former Spanish intelligence – he was a goat herder before coming to the U.S. to become a movie star.
The leads bring Castle and Beckett to the actor who played the villain in the murder victim’s films. It seems he got so into his role, when he was done with acting, he bought a club and started selling drugs just like his role. Only problem for New York’s finest narcotics’ cops is they can’t pin anything on him.
But it seems the murder victim wants to pin something on him as he bought a listening device and a USB drive. When Beckett and Castle interview the former movie villain, Beckett shocks Castle when she takes the man for his word he knew nothing about how the former action hero was murdered. Later, Beckett tells Castle she has realized the listening device used by DeLorca was placed in a slot car that was behind the suspect’s desk.
Yes indeed, slot cars, front and center!
