is no stranger to historical figures. Last season
the show introduced legendary gunmaker Samuel Colt, and this season
famous Prohibition agent Eliot Ness will join the series.
According to TVLine
, The X-Files
veteran Nicholas Lea has been cast as the iconic federal agent in the 12th episode of season 7, airing January 13. Obviously the presence of a historical figure means the Winchester brothers will be time traveling once again. They'll also learn that Ness didn't just hunt bootleggers, he hunted monsters too.
Lea follows another X-Files
star on Supernatural
after Mitch Pileggi appeared last season as Sam and Dean's grandfather.
There has been a long list of actors to portray Ness. Kevin Costner did it in the film The Untouchables
, while Robert Stack and Everwood
's Tom Amandes played him on TV.Supernatural
