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.
Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki star as the Winchester brothers, hellbent on battling the paranormal forces of evil.
