Garth is back. Yes, DJ Qualls is coming back to Supernatural.
Most Supernatural fans have already speculated that Season 8 would see the return of some old friends, and a few enemies, to the show.
While promoting his new show on FX, Legit, at the TCA Summer Press Tour, Qualls confirmed he’ll be heading back to Vancouver in a few weeks for another adventure as supernatural hunter, Garth Fitzgerald IV.
“I go back to Supernatural in a couple of weeks. It’s one of my favorite shows to moonlight on. Jared Padalecki is a really good buddy of mine and also they wrote the part for me. And that’s kind of an honor when somebody calls you and says, ‘Hey, we wrote this for you. You probably are not going to do it.’ I read it and I said, ‘No, this is funny and I’d love to do it.’ And I’m having a great time.
The fans on that show are insane. I did one [a convention] in Birmingham, England. And literally people would just line up and hug you and cry. And it’s like, ‘I am so boring in real life. This is really flattering, but you should see me ten minutes before I got here. I was like a wreck.’ They love it.”
Legit is a new FX comedy starring Australian comic Jim Jefferies, Dan Bakkedahl and DJ Qualls. Legit will be on the FX schedule in January of 2013.
NOTE: There is no word yet if Mr. Fizzles will be joining Garth in their next escapade.
