This is definitely the coolest news I’ve heard all day. Well, maybe except for seeing the new Kimya baby. She’s adorable.
“Revolution” boss Eric Kripke is stacking up some former peeps from “Supernatural.” Jim Beaver, who plays the laid back Bobby Singer – and who usually has the answers the boys are looking for – will appear in season two of the NBC drama “Revolution.”
The actor will guest-star as John Franklin Fry, “a hard-ass, whip smart Texas Ranger who allies with Miles,” describes Kripke. That sounds like the perfect role for Beaver.
Titled “One Riot, One Ranger,” the ep also marks new consulting producer and ex-“Supernatural” scribe Ben Edlund’s first writing credit on the show, alongside co-EP David Rambo. Look for the episode to air in mid-October.
Other “Supernatural” vets who landed on “Revolution” during season one include Mark Pellegrino, Todd Stashwick and Colin Ford.
Don’t worry, though. Beaver will reprise his “Supernatural” role as Bobby this fall. He’s also appeared on “Justified,” “Dexter,” and “Breaking Bad,” among others.
“Revolution” returns on Wednesday, Sept. 25, at 8/7c.
