It's time for Supernatural
to introduce Pestilence, one of the Four Horsemen who are described in the book of Revelation
as part of the apocalyptic destruction of Earth. According to TV Guide Magazine
, the show is currently looking for a 40-50 year old man to play the mythical figure who is described as "quirky, unassuming and highly intelligent." He's also a bit neurotic and has a nasty cold. Warning: Spoilers ahead!!!
Given the Horseman's title, fans can expect him to carry out some sort of fatal "diabolical plan of bio-terrorism" which will surely serve as yet another challenge to Sam and Dean. While there is no word yet on when Supernatural
will introduce Pestilence, it has been revealed that this certain episode will also feature a character named Tyson, who is working for a pharmaceutical company and has plans to capitalize on a revolting flu virus by providing the vaccine.
Pestilence is the last of the Four Horsemen to be introduced on Supernatural
. So far, we've met War in the episode "Good God Y'All" while Death was introduced in "Abandon All Hope" although technically, he was not seen. Famine, on the other hand, appeared in "My Bloody Valentine," where he made a "stomach-turning cannibalistic introduction."
Who do you think should play Pestilence?
