Another Whedon Alum Joins Supernatural – About Time!

July 10, 2011

Hello readers! Sorry for the radio silence this past week or so, life got busy so as far as I was concerned it was a slow news week. Except for the Cabin in the Woods stuff (sadly no release date yet but I might put the photos up tomorrow for those of you who haven’t seen them yet). Even with a busy life I still manage to keep up with the exciting Joss Whedon related news because as some frequent readers may know, the man is god. So the point of this story was that I finally had the time/motivation to read my Facebook live feed and it was all pretty boring apart from this one little link from the always awesome Zap2it.com.

Yeah if I wasn’t in a general all around happy mood already this would do it. Jewel Staite of Firefly & Stargate Atlantis fame will be guest starring in episode 3 of Supernatural’s 7th season a.k.a. the episode directed by series star Jensen Ackles. It will be a flashback episode where Sam (Jared Padelecki) runs into his old friend Amy (Jewel) while on a hunt. Amy’s flashback self has yet to be cast but fan favorite Colin Ford will be back as young Sam. The episode will air October 7th which feels really far away. You can (and should) read the full Zap2it article here because they are awesome.

One reason many Joss fans love Supernatural (besides its general awesomeness) is its dedication to bringing us fabulous guest stars particularly from the Whedon verse. Jewel will be the latest in a growing list of female Whedon alums who’ve guest starred on the show: Amy Acker, Julie Benz, Mercedes McNab, Amber Benson and Summer Glau was this close to playing a zombie this one time. Now that we’ve had all these awesome girls on the show it’s time to get some Whedony guys on it! I’m hoping for Nick Brendon, James Marsters and Fran Kranz personally.
