Jim Beaver


Jim Beaver is an American actor, and was born on August 12, 1950 in Laramie, Wyoming. He is most familiar to viewers as either gruff but kind prospector Whitney Ellsworth on HBO's Deadwood, or as Sam & Dean's surrogate father Bobby Singer on Supernatural. Those roles are only the tip of the iceberg though, as Beaver has been acting steadily in both film and TV for over 30 years. Just some of Jim's film credits include Turner & Hooch, Sister Act, Magnolia, Joy Ride, Adaptation, and The Life Of David Gale. Beaver also has dozens of TV guest star credits to his name including Dallas, Matlock, Lois & Clark, NYPD Blue, 3rd Rock From The Sun, The X-Files, That 70's Show, The West Wing, Six Feet Under, Monk, Psych, The Mentalist, and Justified. In addition to all that, he also found the time to be a series regular on the CBS horror/mystery series Harper's Island.
