Supernatural, Harper’s Island Star Talks of Life and Death

Life is twice as nice for fans of Jim Beaver starting this Thursday, when at 9 pm/ET they can find him playing Bobby in fresh episodes of the CW’s Supernatural, then at 10 watch him play sheriff on CBS’ Harper’s Island. That, however, is far from all Beaver has going on. He has also just released Life’s That Way, a novel chronicling his wife’s battle with cancer – an ordeal which happened to coincide with their daughter’s autism diagnosis. Beaver found time to talk to TVGuide.com about his labors of the small-screen and of the heart. TVGuide.com: What drew you to Harper’s Island? It does have a pretty nifty concept, being a closed-end series. Jim Beaver: That was certainly an interesting draw. Of course I’m always up for a job, but I was a little reluctant to take this one on. Because of my family situation, I wasn’t really excited about moving to Vancouver on a semi-permanent basis. But then they told me it’s 13 [episodes] and out, that at the end everybody is either dead or guilty. That made me feel like I could do it. TVGuide.com: Turning to Supernatural, I understand an intervention of sorts is coming for Sam…. Beaver: Bobby and Dean will get together to plot out a way to save Sam from himself. Now that he’s got this demon blood addiction, that’s very troubling to them. But then again, Dean and Bobby don’t completely agree on how to handle it, and things get heated between them as well. TVGuide.com: What’s Bobby’s take on the brothers’ growing rift? Beaver: I think he shares Dean’s concerns about Sam, but Bobby’s always had a pretty good insight into Dean as well, about how much guilt Dean carries for not living up to what he thinks his father would have done. You’re going to see Bobby try to...

Supernatural’s Jim Beaver Meets Fans at Book Signing

You know him at Bobby on Supernatural, but this week actor Jim Beaver traded in his trucker cap and took his place at the podium at the local Barnes & Noble. Jim was in Huntington Beach, California to sign copies of his new book Life’s That Way. The book is made up of a series of emails Jim wrote during a particularly hard time in his life. Just weeks after finding out that his daughter was autistic, he learned that his wife Cecily, a non-smoker, had lung cancer. With friends and family anxious to keep up with the news, Jim began sending out nightly emails detailing Cecily’s progress along with general day-to-day tidbits. In doing so, he unintentionally created an emotional journal that became a life line for hundreds (or possibly thousands) of strangers who were suffering through a similar ordeal. The Huntington Beach book signing was the first of several Jim has planned and he seemed surprised to see the twenty-five or so people who were awaiting his arrival. He quickly gleaned that they were all Supernatural fans but that didn’t dampen his mood. Quite the contrary. When the crowd dutifully asked questions about nothing but his book and his writing, he put on his best Bobby growl and snapped that most of us had probably never even read a book! Ask about Supernatural already! [Check out the rest at the link below!]...

Q & A with Jim Beaver

It seems trite to say but simply put, Jim Beaver is an all over nice guy. He’s most gracious and humble in his nature and someone who I enjoyed having the pleasure of interviewing. When we got down to it, there was a lot to discuss about his upbringing, the start of his film career and what more he’s diving into but we also discussed films in general and his view of them and some things that Beaver enjoys doing the utmost. So, with all the movies you’ve watched over the years and admired, is there a movie in cinematic history that you wish you had either wrote or starred in? Or perhaps even created? No. Of course, it’s great to think about being in something like “The Grapes of Wrath” or “Schindler’s List” or “Unforgiven”, but I like those films for what they are, and they aren’t any less just because I didn’t get to be in them. It’s not so much a case of wishing I could be in some previous classic as it is hoping I get to be in something that becomes a great classic. I’ve been pretty close a couple of times. And it ain’t over yet!...

Newsvine Interview on Jim Beaver

It’s been said that without wonder and insight, acting is just a trade; however with it, it becomes creation. If that’s the case, then Jim Beaver is one heck of an actor and has proved to be a creative artist throughout his life whether it is on stage or on screen. Born James Norman Beaver Jr., in Laramie, Wyoming, he was the eldest of three younger sisters and grew up in Irving, Texas, a suburb of Dallas where his father a minister encouraged him to learn, read and build on his speaking skills. “I always thought it was because he wanted me to follow him into the ministry, but he said in later years that he’d only wanted me to be well-spoken.” Beaver served in the US military shortly after high school and says of the whole transition to be fairly shocking. “It was one of the hardest things I ever did, getting through basic training but it’s one of the best things I ever did, too. High school was tough but none of my teachers ever hit me or made me stand on my toes and knuckles for an hour!” He reminiscences that there was quite a bit he enjoyed about serving in the Marines but admits it was very different and it was a difficult experience compared to his years in high school.
