James Norman "Jim" Beaver, Jr. is an American actor best known for his role as Bobby Singer in the CW horror series Supernatural.

BiographyEdit

Beaver was born on August 12, 1950, to Dorothy Adell and James Beaver, Sr. Because of his father's profession, Beaver and his younger sisters have spent most of his life in Irving, Texas, as well as all of them having attended Irving High School. 2 months after graduating from Fort Worth Christian Academy, Beaver joined several of his friends in enlisting for the United States Marine Corps. He took on multiple responsibilities as a Marine, first working as a microwave radio relay technician, then as a radio operator, then as a supply chief before finally returning to the United States.

Once he returned to the United States, Beaver enrolled in what is now known as Oklahoma Christian University. Despite previously not having much of an interest in theatre, Beaver soon got immersed with the world of film history and creative writing, and decided to try his hand in the world of acting. He got his first stage role in 1972, when he was cast in W. Somerset Maughan's plan Rain. He got his first on-screen role in 1977, when he got an uncredited role as a B.E.A.T. member in the romantic-comedy Semi-Tough. He got his first major recurring role in 1991 when he was cast as Detective Earl Gaddis in the procedural-drama series Reasonable Doubts. Since then he's built a successful career, appearing in shows such as Timeless, Supernatural, Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Dexter, Psych, Lie to Me, Monk, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, and Criminal Minds.
