8:00pm – Tuesday, July 27 on CTV

When an up-and-coming rock star’s dead body is found staged in a scene straight out of her hit music video, Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) delve into the world of obsessed fans, sleazy managers and jealous band members. But it’s only when Alexis (Molly Quinn) uncovers the true meaning behind the lyrics of the final song that clues to the killer’s identity begin to surface.

Canadian actor Maury Chaykin has died, aged 61.

Chaykin is best known for his role in HBO series Entourage where he played over-the-top producer Harvey Weingard, a take on real life producer Harvey Weinstein.

His manager Paul Hemrend has confirmed that the actor passed away at a Toronto hospital surrounded by his family on early Tuesday morning, which was his birthday.

Chaykin had been battling kidney problems for some time.

Chaykin appeared on HBO series Less Than Kind in recent times and series producer Mark McKinney had this to say of the veteran actor: “He was one of our greatest actors.

“Maury’s an actor of unparalleled gifts, you cannot learn what he had in spades – you could study for 1000 years. He had an incredible gift, an instant quickness.”

Chaykin has appeared in the likes of Dances With Wolves, The Postman, Owning Mahoney, Mystery, Alaska, A Life Less Ordinary, and The Adjuster over the years as well as various TV series including  CSI, and Boston Legal.
