Few actors get the same level of love and respect the fans of Supernatural
have for Jim Beaver. As the gruff but loving Bobby Singer, he's as
endearing a character as TV has to offer. Though he's only appeared in
about a quarter of the show's episodes, Bobby is an integral part to the
show's success, a guy who knows how to hunt demons but also knows how
to whip the boys into shape.
Jim Beaver may not be in every episode of Supernatural
, but it
was easy to tell at the show's 100th episode party in January that the
show is always with him. He's had many great roles in his long career,
but it's the blend of emotion, action and dry wit that makes Bobby the
one fans will remember.
When I spoke to Jim Beaver at the party, we discussed his favorite moment from the series (one that the fans will certainly agree with), what the show means to him, and, of course, Jared Padalecki's noxious gas. Listen to the full interview or check out the highlights below.
