Rick got to live his boyhood dream on Castle Season 7 Episode 9 - even if his hero turned out to be a goat herder.
There was lots of fun to be found in "Last Action Hero" but much of the joy was in seeing it all through Castle's eyes. He loved cheesy, '80s action movies and Lance DeLorca was his hero as he explained to Ryan and Esposito in this Castle quote…
Castle: I was raised by a single mother. Hard Kill was how I got my bro time.
Ryan: That explains so much.
