Timeless Season 1 Cast Misha Collins

Timeless Enlists Supernatural Star Misha Collins as Eliot Ness

Timeless is staging a second Supernatural reunion.

Just weeks after news of Jim Beaver’s recurring role, Misha Collins — who plays Castiel on the aforementioned CW series — is set to reunite with his former boss Eric Kripke on the time-hopping NBC drama, it was announced Monday.

Collins will play Untouchables leader Eliot Ness in the episode “Public Enemy No. 1.,” which finds Flynn traveling to 1931 Chicago to partner with gangster Al Capone (Tyrant‘s Cameron Gharaee). Lucy, Wyatt and Rufus, meanwhile, team up with the only man who can bring Capone down: federal law-enforcement agent Ness.

“When the Eliot Ness character first came up, I immediately thought of Misha, and I’m so thrilled to be working with him again,” Kripke said in a statement. “Misha brings his charisma, his talent, and frankly, all of his angelic qualities to the role.”

Collins tweeted about the news after it broke:

Interestingly, Supernatural also featured Ness as a character (played by The X-Files‘ Nicholas Lea) in a Season 7 installment.

Timeless returns tonight at 10/9c on NBC; Collins’ episode airs Feb. 13.

    First Jim Beaver now Misha Collins. Talk about another mini-Eric Kripke reunion of sorts with his Supernatural colleagues.

  2. Fantastic news! Clever move by Kripke–he knows that in addition to charisma and performance, Misha will also bring his big, passionate fanbase. It’s been a while since Misha took a role in the mainstream media sphere (outside his regular starring on Supernatural), so this is exciting!

    This is wonderful news! I’ve never seen Timeless before, but I’m certainly going to start watching now. Misha is a very talented actor and it’ll be great to see him in the role. (But Erik, we ARE going to need him back on SPN soon. ;) Kidding, I know he’s already filmed his role!)

    I am so excited, to see Misha play, Eliot Ness. I really like Timeless and I love Supernatural, so this is a tasty treat for me.

    Very exciting news, but don’t get any thoughts about stealing our angel permanently! Misha’s a great actor, and Cas is definitely my favorite.

    It’ll be great to see Misha in s different role, and I already love Timeless so it’s a win-win for me. Hopefully some SPN/Misha fans will give the show a try & stick around.

    Timeless hasn’t wowed me yet. I liked the pilot but so far it feels very case-of-the-week. I’m hoping that they will set things up to be more serialised and tone down the travelling every week. Maybe do an arc trapped in a setting

    I want to know why Lucy’s holding a hot water bottle. LOL

    Legends of Tomorrow just did an Elliott Ness episode. With the whole of human history available to use do we really need another Chicagoland prohibition era gangster story? These time travel shows need to step it up a bit. Viewer fatigue is a real.
