Happy Birthday Jumblejim!
Jim Beaver, @Jumblejim and Beav to all his twidjits, is our beloved Bobby Singer on Supernatural, and August 12th he is celebrating his 60th birthday. 

Well love by all his cast members, Beaver has been a stable and consistent actor on the show, and the only character the writers have remain true to for the entire 5 years. If fact, the only permanent set on Supernatural is Bobby's house. Everything else is either a temporary set (including all of those terrific motel rooms) or a real location.

Jim Beaver is a long history as a character actor and playwright, and is also quite the film historian. He has starred as Ellsworth on HBO's Emmy Award winning series Deadwood, and has played simultaneous roles on Supernatural, Big Love, and John From Cincinnati.  He also played Sheriff Charlie Mills on Harper's Island, a tremendous horror thriller/mystery created by Ari Schlossberg.  If you haven’t seen it, you should!

A Vietnam vet and a native of Laramie, Wyoming, Beaver was married to Cecily Adams (daughter of Don Adams) from 1989 until her death in 2004. The tragic story of her courageous cancer battle and the bittersweet childhood of their autistic daughter, Maddie has been chronicled in his book Life's That Way: A Memoir.  Of Beaver’s novel, Publishers Weekly writes, “While this cancer memoir often chills the reader to the core with pain and frustration, it offers countless reasons to cheer Beaver as a remarkable man, a loving husband and a responsible single parent.” (So like our Bobby!)

Besides his recurring role of Bobby this year, Jumblejim will appear on the series premiere of the NBC series Law and Order: Los Angeles in September playing the father of a murder victim on the drama. He'll act alongside recently-announced regulars Alfred Molina and Skeet Ulrich. Of his guest appearance Jim writes, "It'll be fun to play something that doesn't have demons in it,"   (Okay everyone, I’m sure he’s just kidding….at least I hope so!)

So from this ‘forever’ twidjit, of which you have like ah… 28,000, Happy Birthday and many, many more to come! 
I know a few of you had been curious about this, so I managed to get an official season six list from Warner Brothers of the Supernatural producers and writers and their titles.  There are some new names and some missing ones.  As suspected, Jeremy Carver has left the show.  So has Julie Siege.  There is a new Supervising Producer and there are three new writers.   

Also confirmed, Sera Gamble is writing the season premiere and Phil Sgriccia is directing. 

The list is below:

Executive Producers:

Eric Kripke
Sera Gamble
Robert Singer
Ben Edlund
Phil Sgriccia

Peter Johnson
Jim Michaels
Supervising Producer:

Adam Glass
Exec. Story Editors:

Andrew Dabb & Daniel Loflin

On Monday, September 13, viewers will get the best of both coasts when the third season premiere of 90210 (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) leads into the season four premiere of GOSSIP GIRL (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET).
