Interview: 'Supernatural' Star Jim Beaver Discusses New Book

Jim Beaver is a busy man. Not only does he star on The CW 's Supernatural and CBS' Harper's Island (both airing Thursday nights), but he's also a new author with the recent release of his third book, Life's That Way: A Memoir. Supernatural fans can look forward to part two of this interview later this week in which he talks about what's ahead for Uncle Bobby, but first, BuddyTV spoke to Jim Beaver about his extremely touching new book. In it he shares the nightly e-mails he wrote to friends and family as he spent his final days together with his wife Cecily. She was dying of cancer and they made plans for him to raise their autistic daughter Maddie alone. The book is full of stories about Jim's time on Supernatural and Deadwood but at the heart of it, Life's That Way is a story about enjoying what you have before it's too late. We spoke with Jim earlier today about his process in writing the new book and about what he learned from his journey, first with Cecily and Maddie and then alone but surrounded by supportive fans.

SideReel's Top 10 Shows with Notable Music, Part 2 - Featured

One Tree Hill - The concept of music is a pretty large component of OTH - Peyton's record label, Haley's music career and the incorporation of actual singers and groups into the show's plot (from Fallout Boy to "Mia") - so it's no wonder that the series has a knack for picking out some fantastic music. One Tree Hill has some excellent music supervisors - choosing music that is not so mainstream that you'll groan at hearing the same song on yet another series, but mainstream enough that the show's young audience will embrace it. OTH has also used real life bands in a creative way - once incorporating a "Benefit Concert" into an episode, only to sell an actual benefit CD , with some of the proceeds going to charity. Some bands used in the series that I'm fond of: Nada Surf, Jack's Mannequin, The Weepies, Citizen Cope and of course, Gavin DeGraw (back when they still played the theme song). Supernatural - Seriously, would some of the things that the Winchester brothers do seem nearly as badass were it not for the sounds of AC/DC, Kansas, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bon Jovi, REO Speedwagon et al that fill the background? If I ever find myself fighting against forces from Hell, I can only hope that my fights will be set to the same awesome backdrop of classic rock. I would argue that no other show is as faithful to such a specific genre of music as Supernatural , but it's a perfect match. I don't want to know what the music licensing fees are for this one... Veronica Mars - From the moment that I first heard usage of the Dandy Warhols' "We Used to Be Friends" as the Veronica Mars theme song (which perfectly described Veronica's outcast status in Neptune), I knew that I would approve of the show's music. Much like the character of Veronica and the series as a whole, musical selections tended to be slightly offbeat and slightly alternative. Awesome bands used in the series: Spoon, Tegan and Sara, Stereophonics, Interpol, Old 97's, The Hives, Starsailor and Sparklehorse. Scrubs - Scrubs probably has the best soundtrack that I've ever heard on a TV comedy. In fact, I'd say that it's the apt musical selections that often contribute to defining both the show's most comedic moments and its most serious ones. The Fray's "How to Save a Life" played at the end of the episode where Doctor Cox lost 3 patients in a single day and decided to quit medicine. It was one of the most powerful episodes of the series and I credit usage of the song for helping to set the tone. Of course, lets also not forget some of the show's lighter musical moments, including Turk's Air Guitaring to Boston and the a capella sounds of Ted's Band. Grey's Anatomy - You might argue that no show so much as Grey's has had the ability to catapult a previously lesser-known group into musical superstardom. "The Fray" and "Snow Patrol" were once upon a time not household band names, and it was before their songs appeared in key scenes of key episodes of Grey's. In fact, "Chasing Cars" from Snow Patrol has become so closely associated with Izzie bawling over a Dead Denny that I can no longer separate the song from that scene in my head. Love or hate how Grey's can pluck an unknown musical gem from obscurity and make them the next big sensation, there's no denying that the show knows where to find great music.

'Supernatural' 4.19 Clip: Dean Points Gun at Third Winchester Brother

A clip is released for the April 23 episode of " Supernatural ". Adam, a 19-year-old boy who calls Dean and Sam to look for John Winchester, is at a diner with the brothers, recalling his childhood experience with John. Dean is suspicious of him but soon draws the gun underneath the table. Adam, who is played by Jake Abel, claims that he is the son of John with a nurse. Dean and Sam agree to meet him with the assumption that he is a demon trying to lure them into a trap. When they found out that Adam is really part of their family, Dean is infuriated by the fact that Adam was raised "normally". The episode is called "Jump the Shark" and reportedly, there will be a tribute to the late Kim Manners which can only be spotted by an eagle-eye viewer. To Watch The Sneak Peek Click Here .

SideReel's Top 10 Favorite TV Siblings, Part 2 - Featured

Gossip Girl - Dan and Jenny Dan and Jenny are by no means perfect children individually. Jenny especially, as a character, tends to piss me off (then again, she's a high school girl, so maybe this is realistic). However, together, I find that Dan and Jenny are adorable siblings. They rarely fight and both seem to legitimately care about each others' well-being. Jenny, from early on in the series, did everything she could to help Dan in his lovelife with Serena. Additionally, Dan knows how to get all brotherly when someone like Nate Archibald takes interest in his little sister. One Tree Hill - Lucas and Nathan So these two are only half-siblings, but who would have guessed back in Season 1 of One Tree Hill that the two would become friends (and Lucas a regular presence in his now-nephew's life)? Though Lucas and Nathan started off as the biggest of enemies, it became evident that their shared common father of Dan Scott - possibly the worst father to ever appear on television - was enough to bring the two together. The two are now not just half-siblings, but genuine friends. Prison Break - Lincoln and Michael Let's not forget how this series started. Lincoln was arrested ( but he was innocent! ) and Michael, without question, figured out how to break Lincoln out of prison. This was complete with a giant tattoo of the prison-escape route. Then, Michael committed a crime himself (bank robbery) so that he could find himself in the identical prison as his brother and the escape could commence. And that was just in Season 1. The brothers since have stuck together through even more... Supernatural - Sam and Dean Sam and Dean Winchester have to have the best brotherly banter on television right now. The slightly more sensitive (and troubled) Sam and the more sarcastic Dean make up a perfect and wholly entertaining supernatural crime fighting duo. They've rescued each other from death more times than I can recall and almost certainly would not be nearly as successful if they weren't working as a team. Friends (1994) - Ross and Monica Though Ross and Monica Gellar frequently exhibited a rivalry between one another, as Monica took issue with Ross being their parents' favorite child , I still always adored their relationship. They were ultra competitive, as demonstrated in the image here from the episode "The One With the Football", but what brother and sister aren't? Though the two were not necessarily the closest when they were younger, as they aged, they became much closer, as many siblings do. Who are your favorite TV siblings?

The Show Might Go On, But Eric Kripke Won't

Fans of Supernatural have known for quite a while that executive producer Eric Kripke envisioned their favorite series to have a five season story arc. Rather than allowing Supernatural to become a shell of its former self, Kripke is determined to make the episodes that remain very strong and leave audiences wanting more. Recently rumors have begun circulating suggesting that the series might continue; but Kripke was recently crystal clear with Entertainment Weekly that even if the series went on he would not. ''Despite what the network and studio may or may not want, I don't have more than five seasons of story," he said. "I certainly would be willing to make sure there are enough villains and heroes around to continue a new story line, and I would be around to answer a few questions - that's it. I'm outta here. There's no way I'm doing season 6." To further halt speculation, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki both spoke negatively about the possibility of moving forward. EW asked Ackles whether a big money contract could lure him to stay. ''They'd have to back up a Brinks truck," he said. That may sound very cynical but he has his reasons. "We don't live at home. We don't sleep in our own beds. Our families aren't here. Our friends aren't here. Our girlfriends aren't here." Jared Padalecki couldn't offer fans much more hope. I enjoy working, but what's the point? Do I want to just keep on doing photo shoots and work so I can get more famous so I can do even more photo shoots and work and fly to more places to do more press?... I get sick of talking about myself. Game over, right? Supernatural is flatlining? Not necessarily. It's not Kripke's decision to cut life support, or Ackles', or Padalecki's. It's the network's; and just as Supernatural's key figures seem to be trying hard to provide fans closure its the network who is leaving ambiguity. "If the show's doing well, we would go on, I'm sure, said CW entertainment president Dawn Ostroff. When asked whether she would try to convince Kripke to come back for it she said, It's premature for us to even address that.'' If Supernatural continued but Kripke, Ackles and Padalecki left what would the series be about? Even if Sam left but Dean stayed or vice versa the central character dynamic would be lost. If that happened would Supernatural really be Supernatural at all? Perhaps that's where the final right of refusal on the series continuation comes into play, the authority even Ostroff alluded to as controlling their decision. Ultimately Supernatural's audience would have to decide whether or not a series without the people who embody it is truly the series they love. As bittersweet as it may be to see the series end, would Supernatural's continuation in a drastically new, network driven direction be a fate worse than death? Source Here
