Welcome to The Yo Brigade, the only fansite dedicated to the talented American actor and singer Jon Huertas. Best known for his role in mini series 'Generation Kill' as Sergeant Antonio "Poke" Espera, Jon is now portraying Detective Javier Esposito in ABC's 'Castle'. Lately, Jon appeared in movies such as 'Stash House' and 'Miss Dial'. He also released his own webseries last year El Gato Blanco, and is currently working on his new short movie "The Box". In paralel to his acting carreer, Jon is also an amazing singer and will release his first album "Grown and Sexy Music" June 11th.

We had a great opportunity a few weeks back to participate in an event that the Naval Special Warfare Family Foundation organized at the home of Craig and Rebeccca Irving. Their Annual Point Loma Dinner (and auction) raises funds for Naval Special Warfare personnel and their families. (Please feel free to donate here.)
If Castle and Beckett got a lot closer in the season 4 finale, the other ‘couple’ of the famous cop show ended differently, angry with each other. Will Ryan and Esposito save their friendship despite of the strife opposing them in the season finale? This is certainly the wish of Jon Huertas :
“I really want to see their argument resolved soon so they can quickly return to the field together, then to solve crimes again, giving Beckett and Castle all the credit as usual,” jokes the actor who plays Esposito in Castle. “That said, I would love to see the writers extend and expand their fight a bit – but not too long…”
“I hope in the first episode of the 5th season, we won’t see them being friend again and act as if nothing happened. I think there will always be a kind of latent distrust between them now …”
Moreover, the Castle actor says he also wants to see the character played by Tamala Jones (Lanie), lying completely naked next to Esposito.
The 5th season of Castle will premiere next fall on ABC.

Castle season 4 ended with Castle and Beckett finally hooking up, Beckett resigning, and the bromance of the show—Ryan and Esposito—strained. Gather.com had the opportunity to talk to Jon Huertas about flying backseat with the Blue Angels and used the chance to ask some questions about Castle.

Castle’s Jon Huertas has been working closely with the military, doing charity work (he has his own cause called Puppies Behind Bars), and generally spreading awareness and the positive word, as well as bringing “military realism” to TV and films. But to celebrate this Memorial Day weekend, Huertas is lending his fame to the Navy to participate in a Blue Angels flight in New York.
“They asked me to come and raise awareness on what the Navy does and how the Navy helps the public,” Huertas told LA TV Insider Examiner over the phone from the east coast on the eve before his flight.
Last week, we unveiled our Castle Season 5 wish list, which contains everything from more Caskett canoodling to an Alexis and Beckett friendship, and, of course, some much-needed Lanie/Esposito hookup action.
When we caught up with Jon Huertas last week to discuss his latest adventure — flying sky high with the famous Blue Angels pilots for Memorial Day — we couldn’t help but ask what’s on his Season 5 wish list. Would he like to see Detective Esposito rekindle the flame with medical examiner Lanie Parish? You might be surprised by his answer!
Keep reading for the hilarious conversation that ensued when we asked the one and only Jon Huertas what he’d like to see next season on Castle.
Castle star Jon Huertas has a big Memorial Day weekend ahead of him! The former member of the U.S. Air Force will be flying backseat with the Blue Angels in the 2012 Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach State Park in New York on Saturday, May 26.
It’s been over 20 years since he’s set foot in a fighter jet, so naturally, there’s a bit of trepidation.
“I don’t like roller coasters. And I think this is basically like a roller coaster on steroids, and HGH, and any other enhancement drug, so I feel like it’s just going to be crazy,” he admitted.
