Supernatural Scoop: Memphis Man Is Sam Colt!

Supernatural‘s oft-referred-to-but-never-seen Samuel Colt finally has a face.

Sources confirm to me exclusively that Memphis Beat detective Sam Hennings has been cast as the legendary hunter. Sam and Dean come face-to-face with the man behind the Colt revolver when they travel back to the Old West later this season.

“He’s an iconic character for the show, and has been since season one,” explains exec producer Sera Gamble. “We’ll be meeting him later in his life, after many years of fighting demons and tinkering with magical weapons and Devil’s Gates and such. Time hasn’t been too kind to the guy — which is pretty par for the course, for a hunter.”
