The idea for this article has been brewing in my mind a while but I haven’t had time to write it before. What would be your choice for top 5 TV series and top 5 movie stars that would make excellent hunters in "Supernatural"? Their involvement in the movies/TV series that I have seen them in is the example of how good of a hunter they would be. My choices are mostly rough around the edges and who have seen the bad side of life.

We got the news in this week that actually - SPOILER - (highlight the following text to see) number one from my TOP 5 TV series list was actually going to be on the last season of Supernatural! - As a hunter a matter of fact. I could not believe it so of course I wanted to get this article out to celebrate the exact announcement.
PS. I clearly have a type both in men and women… Oh well, who can blame me in this case!

Here are my choices to play hunters in Supernatural!   

TV series

1. Christian Kane


“You win the fight by fighting.” – Christian Kane

He has the scruffy frame and he can fight. Also he can sing if that counts. In Angel he was a bad boy that had neat tattoos but in Leverage he really was the perfect hunter. Also he is Jensen’s friend so the comradery is already there. – SPOILER-(highlight the following text to see)  I guess my wish came true and we will see Christian Kane in S15 as Dean Winchester’s hunter friend. 

Angel (TV Series)- Lindsey McDonald, Leverage (TV Series) - Eliot Spencer / Young Steve Reynolds / Lieutenant

2. Lucy Lawless


Look, I loved Xena. She was badass and could have some awesome fights. Also no monster would survive if she was on the job right? And if you think about it - her armor was pretty awesome too. Fa-lalalalalalalalaaaah! (battle shout) 

Hercules: The Legendary Journeys (TV Series) - Xena / Lyla, Xena: Warrior Princess (TV Series) - Xena / Meg / Annie Day, The X-Files (TV Series) - Shannon McMahon, Veronica Mars (TV Series) - Agent Morris, Battlestar Galactica (TV Series) - D'Anna Biers, Salem (TV Series) - Countess Marburg

3. Clayne Crawford


He has been in many series that I know but mostly I look at him how he was as Riggs in Lethal weapon. Instead of the word “police officer” he could have “hunter” written all over it. The rough life, drinking and just punching baddies to their face is a great example why he should be one.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer (TV Series) - Rodney Munson, Burn Notice (TV Series) - Ryan Johnson, 24 (TV Series) - Kevin Wade, Leverage (TV Series) - Mr. Quinn, Lethal Weapon (TV Series) - Martin Riggs

4. Jason Momoa


I did not choose overly muscular hunters to be hunters because they also need to be nimble. Momoa just fits all in all with his physicality to the role. (Also tattoos!) I think he knows our guys too so it is a good fit. He has a look that can kill you where you stand too. I mean it could be named “The stare” and have Momoa’s photo beside it. His physicality in Stargate: Atlantis and Frontier made him a good contender to play a hunter. 

Baywatch (TV Series) - Jason Ioane, Stargate: Atlantis (TV Series) - Ronon Dex, Conan the Barbarian – Conan, Game of Thrones (TV Series) - Khal Drogo, Justice League - Aquaman / Arthur Curry, Frontier (TV Series) - Declan Harp, Aquaman – Arthur

Stargate Atlantis - Ronon & Teyla Spar

5. Lorenzo Lamas


He knows martial arts and when I was young I lover the TV series Renegade. From all these examples I think it is a show that could be named “The Hunter”. He rides a motorbike, has long black trench coat and long dark brown curvy hair. I think he might be as tall as Jared actually. But yes, his Renegade self is the one I see is the hunter.  

Falcon Crest (TV Series) - Lance Cumson, Renegade (TV Series) - Reno Raines / Vince Black, Air America (TV Series) - Rio Arnett

Runner up


Lena Headey, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (TV Series) - Sarah Connor, Dredd - Ma-Ma, Game of Thrones (TV Series) - Cersei Lannister


Zach McGowan, Black Sails (TV Series) - Captain Charles Vane, The 100 (TV Series), King Roan / Prince Roan, Lethal Weapon (TV Series) - Cody Lewis, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (TV Series) - Anton Ivanov  

Black Sails S2E3 Ned Low makes an offer to Charles Vane


Toby Stephens, Black Sails (TV Series) - Captain Flint, Lost in Space (TV Series) - John Robinson


1. Michael Biehn


“I was feeling real good and real manly. Until a real cowboy walked by and told me I had my hat on backwards. So much for my career as a cowboy.”

Ever since when I was little I loved Biehn in movies and TV series. Mostly he played the soldier “type” but also he appeared in western themed stories. Good fit for a hunter wouldn’t you say?

The Terminator - Kyle Reese, Aliens - Corporal Hicks, The Abyss - Lt. Coffey, Tombstone - Johnny Ringo, The Rock - Commander Anderson, The Magnificent Seven (TV Series) - Chris Larabee / Chris Larrabee

2. Linda Hamilton


I think she doesn’t need an introduction but will do it anyway. Although she has not been an action star fully in her career she made a lasting impression to all of us in Terminator as Sarah Connor. Young or old she kicks ass. 

The Terminator - Sarah Connor, Terminator 2: Judgment Day - Sarah Connor, Terminator: Dark Fate (post-production) - Sarah Connor

3. Patrick Swayze 1952-2009


Yes, Road House is my guilty pleasure so sue me! Swayze has been in many action movies that fit the bill but Road House and Point Break are the ones that stick out more to me. He also has the lady charming side that we all know. 

The Outsiders - Darrel Curtis, North and South, Book I-II (TV Mini-Series) - Orry Main, Dirty Dancing -Johnny Castle, Road House – Dalton, Ghost - Sam Wheat, Point Break – Bodhi

4. Sigourney Weaver


If you haven’t seen Alien or Aliens you should watch them immediately. Ellen Ripley is one of the most iconic movie characters there is. She was not actually a fighter but as faith would have it that would change. Isn’t that a story of all hunters before they would get mixed to the life?

5. Michelle Rodriguez


Why does she keep dying? She is like Sean Bean! That does not change the fact tho that she would be an awesome hunter. Mostly she has played soldiers on those movies where I have seen her. It is in her blood. So transition to a huntress would not that hard to see. 

The Fast and the Furious – Letty, Resident Evil – Rain, Fast & Furious – Letty, Avatar - Trudy Chacón, Machete – Luz, Fast & Furious 6 – Letty, Machete Kills - Luz
