"I'm actually reading 'World War Z' again! It's incredibly realistic and it's written as an oral history through interviews with different characters.

"I'm constantly pitching one episode where we see life through Castle's eyes. I think Castle's just a little off as far as his perception goes. A very, very clever man, but I want to see the world as Castle sees it - kind of a rose-colored glasses, all the women find him irresistible, all the guys find him super cool and do whatever he says."
