Ringer Books Supernatural's Misha Collins

Get More: Casting News, Scoop

Supernatural‘s heavenly angel has returned to Earth.

Misha Collins — aka the Winchesters’ ally-turned-foe Castiel on the spooktacular CW series — will guest-star on the network’s rookie drama Ringer.

Ringer Scoop: Ex Marks the Spot for Andrea Roth

Per TVGuide.com, Collins will appear in Episode 14 as Dylan, a man that both Bridget and Siobhan have a past with and who is partly responsible for the wedge between them.

Collins’ fan favorite character on Supernatural was seemingly killed off in this season’s second episode, but showrunner Sera Gamble has said she hopes to bring back the actor in some form.

  • Dammit. I HATE Castiel, so I am not thrilled to have to put up with him on Ringer now.

    • My response was the opposite: “Man, I really have no desire to watch this show, but I LOVE Misha. I guess I’m in.” (Heck, I sat through that horrible Stonehenge Apocalypse Syfy movie for the guy. I can handle watching whole bunch of actors I like doing stuff I really don’t care about for an hour.)

      • The guy ruined Supernatural and now he’s out to ruin Ringer. Ugh!

        • To each his own, I suppose. Castiel is the reason I became interested in the show in the first place, though I’m certainly still watching without him.

          • And from someone who’s been loyal to Supernatural since the very first episode back in September 2005, I can tell you Castiel and all that angel bullsh!t baggage is the worst thing that ever happened to Supernatural.

          • I wouldn’t say it’s being disloyal to have never heard of the show. After I’d seen the first half of S4, I watched all of the first three seasons over the Winter hellatus. I’m just saying that we both have a right to our opinions. (And I’d like to suggest that we keep things civil here, so as not to lend credence to SPN fans’ unfortunate reputation.) Personally, as much as I do love Cas, I also love the show when it’s just Sam and Dean against the world.

          • (@Snapy) And from someone else who’s been loyal to the show since the pilot, I love what Cas & the angel mythology brought to the show. That doesn’t make 1-3 any less entertaining. Although I do love the logic behind ‘time watching show = level of authority’ in your comment. Get over yourself, if you don’t like Cas, don’t watch seasons 4+. Instead just keep watching the same 3 seasons over, and over, and over…

        • Umm, Okay. If you didn’t like Castiel, that’s cool each too their own but unless you didn’t like Castiel’s performance a.k.a Misha’s performance then their is no reason you should dislike Misha. If you think Castiel ruined Supernatural that’s cool but blame the writers. Misha didn’t create Cas he just portrayed him on scree.n

          • Misha brought Castiel to life in the most annoying of ways. It’s the actor’s fault for making the character unlikable.

            Comment by Snapy – November 11, 2011 06:18 AM PDT  
          • Snapy – Writers play a big hand in making characters unlikable, not actors, dear. ;) It’s one thing to agree to disagree, but stop trying to shove your opinion down other people’s throats. It’s sad.

            Comment by Logan – November 11, 2011 02:07 PM PDT  
        • He was great on SPN, s6 sucked but I blame Sera. Ringer has gotten much better, still not my fave, but I like the guest stars they have, Jason Dohring, soon to be Amber Benson, and now Misha!

        • Sera, stop posting on TV websites and save your damn show!

        • No no, my dear. FIRING Misha and destroying Castiel ruined Supernatural. Well, that and the crap writing that’s creeped into a once great show these past two seasons. Sad.

          I might have to check out Ringer. I miss Misha on my TV.

      • I too sat throught Stonehenge Apocalypse for him!!!! But I’m lucky as I love BOTH Misha AND the Ringer, so it’s win-win for me!!

        Comment by Katy – November 11, 2011 02:23 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Well, the actor’s not going to be portraying Castiel on Ringer, so I think you’re in luck. . .

      • He’s annoying either way!!

        Comment by Snapy – November 10, 2011 03:24 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • @Snapy

          Wow, it seems really important to you that people know you think Misha Collins/Castiel is annoying. You really haven’t explained why that’s your opinion or supported it.

          My own opinion (as someone with SPN since pilot lol): Cas’ angel plotline was great. If the show had tried to be what it was for the first three seasons, I’m not sure it would still be here today, and I loved 1-3. Shows have to evolve, change, and take risks to survive. And really, don’t blame an actor for making a character annoying unless you explain what you found annoying.

        • For someone who started watching from the beginning. I loved when they added Castiel and the whole Angel story line. But hey it’s your choice to hate on an amazing actor.

          Comment by Catherine – November 10, 2011 07:38 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • From someone who watched SPN from the begining, absolutely loved Cas/Misha. We need him back big time on the show.

            Comment by RJ – November 10, 2011 08:09 PM PDT  
          • No you don’t. Season 7 is proving Supernatural is better off without Castiel. The first 3 seasons are the best. Those are the seasons that defined the show and made it so good. Cas ruined it all.

            Comment by Snapy – November 10, 2011 08:15 PM PDT  
          • I think all the seasons of Spnl are great, except season 6. Season 5 was the best because of the Lucifer arc. Castiel’s addition to the show in season 4 was brilliant and I had goosebumps when they introduced him. I miss Castiel, but Misha will come back to the show as Levi-Cas in future episodes. And Misha is a fine actor!

            Comment by James – November 11, 2011 12:24 AM PDT  
          • Cas simply makes the show better–he a great support along with Bobby for the boys.

            Comment by RJ – November 11, 2011 07:59 AM PDT  
    • I don’t like Castiel either, but I was happy for Misha to be on Ringer, since that would mean he gets to show his talent, yet we won’t see him on SPN anymore – happy until I read that it’s only a guest star role. :(

      I really like that SPN is taking a break from the angel plot, though.

    • STFU Snapy! I loved Castiel’s character. When they killed him, I was sad, but I knew it was necessary to make the fans more invested in the show. I still love Spnl. Misha Collins is a great actor, don’t badmouth him! I don’t watch Ringer, but I’ll watch this episode just to see how he does on the show.

  • Apparently I’ll be watching an episode of The Ringer. Vlada, do you know the air date for this ep?

    Comment by Ace – November 10, 2011 02:35 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Can’t wait to see this, Ringer needed something of a boost and it doesn’t come better than Misha!

    Comment by Rhian – November 10, 2011 02:38 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I am ecstatic to see Misha on another show and in another role, AND WITH DIFFERENT CLOTHES!

    I hope this is just the beginning. Misha needs to start guest starring on the bigger networks.

    Comment by Kay – November 10, 2011 02:41 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • It’d be kinda hilarious if he showed up on Ringer with a trench coat and a blue tie.

      Comment by Ace – November 10, 2011 03:44 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Really excited for this! Have watched Ringer now and then but to hear Misha’s gonna be on it is great. Can’t wait to see this episode.

    Comment by Renee – November 10, 2011 02:43 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Please keep him on Ringer, then we won’t have him back on Supernatural, his character ran its course but I wish him lots of luck with his career and hope he gets a good role on another show, just not back to Supe. Keep him recurring on Ringer please.

    Comment by Stevo – November 10, 2011 02:44 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • That is a good point. I’d rather have him on Ringer if it means keeping Castiel the HELL away from my Supernatural!

  • This is FANTASTIC news. I can’t wait to see Misha on Ringer.

  • I don’t understand people who don’t like Misha (or Castiel). I am a HUGE fan. Not only did I love his character on Supernatural, but he is such an inspiring person as well and I follow the work he does with Random Acts. I’m excited to see him on Ringer, a show I am already enjoying tremendously. :)

    • I like your attitude, Mikaylah! Even if you don’t like his character or his acting, you have to acknowledge that he’s a pretty awesome human being.

      Comment by Ace – November 10, 2011 03:48 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Team you guys! I totally agree. I had ups and downs with Castiel, but I love Misha. He is hilarious, sincere and does a lot of good work for worthy causes. Seems like he’ll be a pretty pivotal character on Ringer too.

      Comment by Kat – November 10, 2011 05:15 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Too bad Ringer is such an awful show, Misha deserves better like maybe a big reoccurring arc on NCIS or even Law and Order SVU =) anything is better than Ringer.

    I might not have liked the character on SPN but I think Misha is a great actor ;)

    Comment by Freedomwatcher38 – November 10, 2011 03:54 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Misha was on NCIS during one of the prior seasons. He played a carjacker and was a very convincing jerk.

    • I’d like to see him on True Blood, maybe as part of the fairy storyline?

  • I’ve never been interested in Ringer but I love Misha Collins. He was great on Supernatural. So I’ll be checking out this episode.

  • Is it possible for a show to have too many hot men?

    • I’m in favor of trying to find out!

    • I know what you mean! SMG sure has surrounded herself with a lot of good-looking guys. I love “Supernatural” and I’m really enjoying “Ringer”, so this is exciting news for me!

  • Go back to supernatural where I can actually watch you

    Comment by aaron – November 10, 2011 04:31 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Sera ‘hopes’ to bring him back? Why not just do so, she’s the show runner! So much can be done with this character! He can fall, we can watch him and the Winchesters fix their friendship, he can become part of the family, learn to be human, deal with everything that goes with facing the consequences of his actions (though I still don’t think he did anything wrong. Dean needs to realize that). I think they completely wasted the land mine of potential Cas’ character offered the show. If I wanted to have the old supernatural back, I’d pop in a DVD.

    • She ‘hopes’ to have him back because he may not be available. I’m sure he’ll booked other acting jobs.

  • I love Ringer!! This character sounds great. I’ve been wondering when they’d address the nature of the origins of the twins rift.

  • Do you not know the difference between a character and an actor????? Also, Ringer is already ruined because of the suckiness.

    • Ringer is actually the best new show of the fall season.

      • As much as I love Ringer, I disagree, Revenge is much better.

        Comment by lorna – November 11, 2011 03:34 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Well, I’m going to start watching Ringer now! Still holding out hope that Castiel returns to Supernatural though.

  • I personally love both Misha and Ringer so this is a match made in heaven (pun intended). I was legitimately frightened by his character in Lifetime’s Karla and to me that just shows how versatile and talented Misha is. I’m excited to see him do more as an actor.

    Comment by alyssa – November 10, 2011 07:52 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Funny you should mention Karla. The events of that movie took place in my neighbourhood—one of the girls was taken at the corner store at the end of my street.

      Comment by Snapy – November 10, 2011 08:16 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Perhaps this is why you have such a hate on for Misha/Castiel. You are subconsciously associating him with Paul Bernardo.

        Comment by Wicked – November 23, 2011 09:41 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I love this show but there are way too many characters and storylines to keep track of at this point. Also – too many vanilla, clean cut, pretty boys on this show. Love Malcom to give us some diversity – couldn’t we have a little more with this person? Do we realllllllly need another boy toy on this show???!!!!!!!!!

    Comment by Joline – November 10, 2011 09:11 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Yeah, let’s put an Asian, a Mexican and an Eskimo on there. There isn’t enough diversity!!! Also a lesbian cat.

  • Mishaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! How anyone can NOT love him is beyond me. I really miss Castiel like my insides but can’t wait to see him on TV again.

    Comment by Ella – November 10, 2011 10:48 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Misha was cast on Ringer, not Castiel. Who cares if you hate Castiel? It still doesn’t change the fact that there are others that are more of a fan than a hater like you.

  • I have been a Supernatural fan since DAY ONE and I LOVE Castiel!!!!! He has been one of the best additions to the show and I hope to see him back soon!!! Misha is such an awesome guy…but Cas is the man!!!!!

  • The fact is your opinion will not change how his fans feel about Misha. So who are YOU trying to convince with your self loathing?

  • Glad we will see Misha again, but I still want him back on SPN.

    And if the show is better without him how come the ratings are lower then they have ever been? 1.7 millon viewers last week when they where above 2 millon last season

  • Will Misha be back on Supernatural? where did all the angels go?

    Comment by john b – November 11, 2011 01:46 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • The only thing that kept my interest in Supernatural was Castiel. I loved the show before he was on it, but 3 seasons of the same thing was getting boring, until Castiel came and gave the show a new lease of life. I think it’s insane that not only are they not giving him more screen time but they took him away. Insanity. Now the Ringer has him, but I couldn’t care less because that show sucks. We need Misha back on Supernatural.

  • How can u say dat???? Castiel aka Misha is the best thing about Supernatural , hell I pretty much got obsessed with Supernatural because of him … : ( , don’t worry Misha , don’t listen to the haters

  • I agree with you , don’t hate Misha ( his just a innocent hot babe) blame the writers , n plus I’m not saying that i am not happy for seeing an angel on the show , I’m actually really thrilled , I was jus saying this opinion to those haters der!!

    Comment by Maheen – November 12, 2011 08:30 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Never watched ringer but I guess I’m going have to start watching it because of Misha , Love u Misha!! May god bless u n ur family n the work that u do!!! Keep up the good work!! :)

    Comment by Maheen – November 12, 2011 08:41 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Has anyone ever thought that Misha could come back as Jimmy? Castiel’s vessel? Sure I miss Castiel, but I do agree with some when they say he had a good run – unless the Supernatural crew comes up with an awesome and believable way to bring Castiel back, I’m fine with not seeing Cas. But if they do bring Misha back, I’d like to see Jimmy and what 2 years has been for him with an angel riding. Maybe he would be a hunter?

    Comment by Ryan – November 14, 2011 11:28 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I started watching Supernatural with the highest of hopes. Got bored by early season 3. Gave up just as the angels were being introduced. Came back to the show after discovering Casteil late in season 6 and had to back track to catch up on the story line. Then Cas was gone. I also watched a lot of the interviews and videos of the various cons Misha attended but compressed into just a few weeks. He turned out to be much more interesting as a person ie. funny, quirky, obviously intelligent and a humanitarian. I also noticed he was becoming ” creeped out” by his fans and referring to the behavior as being “F’d up”. Perhaps it was Misha himself who wanted “out” and Sera is just taking the heat for him. Just a thought. Discussion, please.
