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
