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.

Corin Nemec is repped by Matt Shapiro at David Shapiro & Associates.

The late summer of 1990 found two high school sitcoms premiering: the TV adaptation of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off [simply entitled Ferris Bueller] for NBC; and – ten days later – Fox’s Parker Lewis Can’t Lose. Bueller lasted one season [with its finale held back ‘til just over a year after its premiere] and Parker Lewis [which some had though to be an inferior version of Ferris Bueller] went on to run for three wacked out seasons [and 73 episodes]. Not the longest run for a sitcom, maybe, but years ahead of its time.

Parker Lewis Can't Lose S1 Box

Parker Lewis Can’t Lose: The Complete First Season, in stores Tuesday, is – after Quark and Sports Night – the sitcom I’ve most wanted to see released on DVD. Why? It’s smart, funny, innovative and had a very “take no prisoners” attitude that not only helped Fox establish itself as the edgier, more inventive network of the early nineties, but provided elements that have become highly influential to many of the sitcoms that came after it [Malcolm in the Middle and Scrubs come immediately to mind…].
