Jim Beaver came to us with one of his usual eye catching t-shirts, a clever no smoking symbol with the words â€œThere are cooler ways to die.â€ He was also wearing a hat that said â€œIdgits.â€ He thought the shirt was relevant to the show and the hat he had gotten that from a fan and thought he ought to wear that today.
You know the drill, SPOILER ALERT!!
What can you tell us about whatâ€™s going on with Bobby in season six?
I wish I was paying attention. Thatâ€™s not true. Bobbyâ€™s back better than ever. I think heâ€™s strong and determined and heâ€™s shaking off whatever doubts and despair that were afflicting him last season, trying to shake them off. I have no idea past episode four because I havenâ€™t seen the script past that but my feeling is that heâ€™s back and heâ€™s feeling good and going to be the 100 percent hunter he used to be.
How does it feel for you to finally be out of that chair? As an actor it gave you a lot of great powerful scenes Iâ€™m sure but at the same time Iâ€™m sure youâ€™re glad to be moving around.
Iâ€™m not going to compare it to really getting out of a wheelchair but itâ€™s certainly freeing in a lot of ways. Iâ€™m not worried about rolling over cables on the set floor anymore. I donâ€™t have to worry about all my scenes being Bobby stays at home and answers the phone. Cause that was like, â€œWell everybody else gets to have adventures and iâ€¦â€ Yeah, so that was getting a little old.
(Couldnâ€™t hear the question too well, but it involves the relationship between Bobby and Dean. Are they getting along?)
Hmm, what can I say and still keep my job. Not very much. Forgive me, I get a little mixed up because we shot episodes out of order and okay, what comes first? The season opener, Deanâ€™s new family will be very much a part of it and Bobby will become involved with them to an extent. But from what Iâ€™ve shot so far, I donâ€™t know exactly how part of thatâ€™s going to go. As far as my character goes itâ€™s just an initial connection and whateverâ€™s going to happen in the future I donâ€™t know about yet. So, I canâ€™t answer it very well.
Is Bobby more emotionally hardened or softened by what happened at the end of season five? You said he was going to be a stronger Bobby.
At least in a sense I think heâ€™s determined to be, a new stronger Bobby. Whether he is or not, I donâ€™t know. Iâ€™m approaching it as Bobby is free from the shackles of season five and heâ€™s feeling strong again. Emotionally, I havenâ€™t seen much script wise to suggest that. I donâ€™t think heâ€™s got PTSD or anything. Itâ€™s kind of like Bobbyâ€™s back, I think. But weâ€™re not very far in.
(my question) Is Bobbyâ€™s demon deal with Crowley, do you know if thatâ€™s going to come back to bite him?
Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Episode 4, which is pretty much all Bobby all the time, itâ€™s very definitely going to deal with Bobbyâ€™s deal with Crowley. Thatâ€™s gonna get dealt with. Whether itâ€™s gonna get resolved or not again wait and see but it certainly gets dealt with.
