Actor Misha Collins is trading in his angel wings for a prohibition-era agent badge when he reunites with Supernatural creator Eric Kripke [Collins plays angel Castiel on the long-running CW series] on an upcoming episode of the executive producer's latest series, Timeless.
In the February 13 episode of the NBC freshman drama about a trio of noble time travelers trying to keep historical events intact from evil doers, Collins, will guest as 1930s historical figure Eliot Ness, who famously went head-to-head in the 1930s against gangster Al Capone.
Timeless is staging a second Supernatural reunion.
Just weeks after news of Jim Beaver’s recurring role, Misha Collins — who plays Castiel on the aforementioned CW series — is set to reunite with his former boss Eric Kripke on the time-hopping NBC drama, it was announced Monday.
“When the Eliot Ness character first came up, I immediately thought of Misha, and I’m so thrilled to be working with him again,” said executive producer and co-creator Eric Kripke. “Misha brings his charisma, his talent — and frankly, all of his angelic qualities to the role.”
