Sheriff Jody Mills and Dean and Sam’s foster father, Bobby Singer, are on the move. After saving people, hunting things, “Supernatural” stars Kim Rhodes (Mills) and Jim Beaver (Singer) are heading to the “Criminal Minds” spinoff show, “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders,” for a guest appearance.
Rhodes and Beaver will together guest star in the same Season 2 episode, according to TVLine. In fact, “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders” has more connections with “Supernatural” off-screen than its parent series. The executive producer of the spinoff, Adam Glass, is a former writer and executive producer of The CW show.
Rhodes and Beaver will appear in Season 2, episode 9 of “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders.” Beaver will play the Deputy Director of National Intelligence, Donald Atwood. He has a familiar shorthand with Agent Jack Garrett (Gary Sinise).
Meanwhile, Rhodes will portray Lydia Barnes, an Executive Assistant Director of the FBI’s National Security Branch. She is described as a committed agent with an unwavering sense of duty. She bumps into Agent Garrett when the nation’s national security is threatened.
Rhodes and Beaver aren’t the only “Supernatural” actors to appear in Season 2. Matt Cohen, who played a younger version of Dean and Sam’s father, John Winchester, has also been cast as Agent Garrett’s son, Ryan, on “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders.” Even Rob Benedict (God/Chuck), Osric Chau (Kevin) and Richard Speight Jr. (Gabriel) will guest-star on the CBS spinoff.
Guess the producer is really using his “Supernatural” connections, no?
The “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders” Season 1 finale began with Garrett and his team heading to Spain where the ears of a missing American tourist were found. The two-hour finale ended with the International Response Team (IRT) rushing to Haiti where an American citizen’s daughter was kidnapped.
