Revolution Exclusive: Jim Beaver Books Guest Spot, Reunites With Supernatural Producers
Revolution boss Eric Kripke has recruited another one of his former Supernatural colleagues.
Jim Beaver, who plays Bobby Singer on the Kripke-created CW series, will appear on Season 2 of the hit NBC drama, TVLine has learned exclusively.
The actor will guest-star as John Franklin Fry, “a hard-ass, whip smart Texas Ranger who allies with Miles,” describes Kripke.
Beaver’s installment, titled “One Riot, One Ranger,” marks new consulting producer and ex-Supernatural scribe Ben Edlund’s first writing credit on the show (alongside co-EP David Rambo). The episode will air in mid-October.
Among the Supernatural vets who visited Revolution during Season 1 are Mark Pellegrino, Todd Stashwick and Colin Ford.
Beaver — who is set to reprise his Super role as Bobby this fall — counts Justified, Dexter, Breaking Bad, Harper’s Island, John from Cincinnati and Big Love among his many TV credits.
Revolution returns on Wednesday, Sept. 25, at 8/7c.Follow @VladaGelman
