If my cat were still alive, he’d be excited about this news, because Corin Nemec was one of the stars of my cat’s favorite movie, Operation Dumbo Drop.
The Supernatural publicist at Warner Brothers has confirmed to Eclipsemagazine that the former star of the teen sitcom, Parker Lewis Can’t Lose has been cast in the recurring role of Christian Campbell for the upcoming season six of Supernatural. Christian Campbell is a cousin to Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) Winchester on their mother’s side of the family. While little is known about the character beyond this family connection, it would be my guess that Christian Campbell is a hunter the same as his grandfather Samuel Campbell (played by Mitch Pileggi) and his aunt Mary Winchester (played alternately by Samantha Smith and Amy Gumenick), who is the mother of Sam and Dean Winchester.
Corin Nemec is no stranger to working on series about otherworldly events, having spent time on the sixth season of the hit series Stargate: SG1 as Jonas Quinn who joined the planet hopping team lead by Richard Dean Anderson’s Colonel Jack O’Neill. Corin Nemec also worked on the Syfy Channel mini-series The Stand, based on the Stephen King novel of the same name.
My cat loved to watch Supernatural with me too, so I’m sure he would be doubly delighted to know that Corin Nemec is on board for season six. Stay tuned to Eclipsemagazine as we bring more updates and information about the character of Christian Campbell and the sixth season of the hit CW series Supernatural.
SAM AND DEAN ARE KILLED AND GO TO HEAVEN — Ambushed by angry hunters, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) are shot and killed and sent to Heaven. Castiel (Misha Collins) warns Dean that Zachariah (guest star Kurt Fuller) is looking for them in Heaven so they need to lay low while searching for an angel named Joshua (guest star Roger Aaron Brown) who can help them since he talks directly to God. While searching for Joshua, the brothers run into some old friends and family members. Jeff Woolnough directed the episode written by Andrew Dabb & Daniel Loflin
It took me a bit to get to the commentary on Supernatural S5.16 Dark Side of the Moon because there was so much in the episode to think about and form an opinion on. I liked this episode, which was written by Daniel Loflin and Andrew Dabb, but I’m still having a hard time deciding it if was a pivotal episode or just another filler episode. With some of the things we learned about Heaven, about Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) I’m leaning more towards pivotal. Yet I think the things that it ‘filled in’ about these characters for the viewers and for the fans of the series was more important to the progression of the myth arc concerning the apocalypse than any pivot points.
With Sweeps Weeks going on and every television network looking to gain even more viewing audiences for their shows, The CW Network and Warner Brothers gave select members of the online press a chance to have an advance viewing of this week’s new episode of the hit series, Supernatural to generate some Sweeps Week buzz about it. After taking advantage of that opportunity to see Supernatural S5.13 The Song Remains the Same, all this reviewer can say about it is WOW!!
Ok, there is more to say than just that. Check out this synopsis to see what I mean.
When angel ally Anna (guest star Julie McNiven) escapes her captors in Heaven she contacts Castiel (Misha Collins) in an effort to find Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles), but Castiel is suspicious of her motives. He soon learns that the former ally has gone back in time in a “Terminator”-like plan to stop the Apocalypse by killing John (Matt Cohen) & Mary (Amy Gumenick) Winchester before their son’s are ever born, thus ending the possibility of the brothers becoming vessels for Lucifer and Michael. Steve Boyum directed the episode written by Sera Gamble and Nancy Weiner.
