Chuck is being resurrected…on The Mentalist!

Rob Benedict, who recurred on CW’s Supernatural as author/prophet(/possibly God) Chuck Shurley, has scored a guest spot on CBS’s The Mentalist. He will play Paul Friedman, an adjunct professor and PhD candidate who works in the same lab where a student was murdered.

The episode, titled “Red in Tooth and Claw,” will air in mid-February on CBS.

Benedict, who last appeared on Supernatural in season 5, has most recently appeared on NCIS: LA, Shameless, and Psych.
