Castle alum Jon Huertas has booked a recurring role on Dan Fogelman’s NBC dramedy series This Is Us.

Starring Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia and Sterling K. Brown, This Is Us follows an ensemble — some of them sharing the same birthday — whose life stories intertwine in curious ways.

Huertas will play Mike, Jack’s (Ventimiglia) co-worker and best friend.

Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Chris Sullivan, Susan Kelechi Watson and Ron Cephas Jones also star.

Huertas starred as Detective Javier Esposito on ABC’s long-running hit drama series Castle, a role which earned him an Imagen Award, Alma Award and Prism Award. Huertas also starred in Generation Kill and The Shield for FX. He can also be seen in the indie film Reparation.

Fogelman, Donald Todd, John Requa, Glenn Ficarra, Ken Olin, Charlie Gogolak and Jess Rosenthal executive produce. This Is Us is produced by 20th Century Fox Television.

Huertas is repped by Innovative Artists, Marsh Entertainment, and Meyer & Downs, LLP
