    Jim’s super busy these days, which is fine by me. guy’s a great character actor.

  2. He is in such high demand! Go Jim!

  3. Talk about a mini-Supernatural reunion. BTW, is Eric Kripke still pulling double duty on Revolution and Supernatural as producer?

    • Courtney says:

      Jack, Kripke isn’t an executive producter on Supernatural any more. He hasn’t been since the end of Season 5, when his contract with the network expired and he opted not to renew it. He is billed as “created by” in the credits and IMDB says he is an “executive consultant” on the show.

  4. Katiki says:

    Okay, Kripke, you can borrow Bobby but you have to give him back. And give Edlund back too!

  5. Dean Grimly says:

    Don’t leave out Jim Beaver’s awesome performance in the HBO megahit “Deadwood” as Ellsworth; or miss out on Timothy Olyphant (“Justified”); and Ian McShane (most recently as Blackbeard on “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”), who also starred in “Deadwood.”

    Leave it to Beaver to have a guest role.

  7. Ruby says:

    He is SO MUCH BETTER than this crap show.

  8. Drew says:

    Wait… when did Edlund leave Supernatural?!

    Well, maybe he can make Revolution not suck anymore.
