If you're not caught up on Supernatural season 10 yet, stop reading! And hurry the crap up!
If you are, then you know the darkness is free, all other forms of ancient monsters, dastardly demons and heavenly characters have already appeared on the show (Lucifer, all the archangels, famous demons, Crowley, for starters). Since Death is now dead (eh?), the darkness is on the loose (and only God and his angels can stop it), Lucifer's in the cage, Crowley is looking to get eaten alive by a bloody-eyed Cas, it really looks like The Big Man is going to make an appearance.
But, who gets to play him? There are SO many choices, from actors & actresses who have never been on the show to those who have.
Here it is, The Final Countdowwwwn! You're welcome for putting that song in your head...it's Dean approved!
Rob Benedict (Chuck Shurley)
He's wayyyy at the bottom of my list for a few reaons. His love for porn and drinking is right up there on top of that list. The Supernatural execs have quite a long list of actors they could choose to play God, and they could use a character whose morals might be a little off. But Chuck just ain't right. Plus, I'm pretty sure the guys behind the scenes already nipped that rumor in the bud at some point.
He does the show good as a prophet who shows up once in a while to make a fangirl go crazy, but nothing more.
I was googling around, and ran across this not so little munchkin, and thought...why not? Her Twilight days are (thankfully) behind us, she doesn't seem to be too busy, so why not a season-long stint on Supernatural as God? Plus, all the feminists of the world would be happy, and that's one group we need to keep happy.
Rin Tin Tin XII
Dog! God! Get it? It would be neat if the producers could strike a deal with the owners of this canine from a long line of awesome canines. God doesn't have to speak to get his point across sometimes, and, well, yeah! Dog!
Osric Chau (Kevin Tran)
Because the little dude didn't deserve to die that way, and could use a second chance!
Crowley has that Scottish-English accent going, so why not have another English actor? It would be cool if God had an accent, right? Plus, Benedict has kind of a classy air about him, and God's pretty darned classy.
Shah Rukh Khan
A pretty popular bollywood actor, this guy has some pretty cool eyes, and freaky cool eyes would be a God quality, ya think? No? Well then, he's #4 on my list, right above my top 4 picks also because of his country of origin. The Supernatural producers would have some shock value, plus maybe make a statement that all of us breathe the same air and live on the same rock, so why not have an Indian actor play God? Plus, pretty much every country has been represented on Supernatural except India!
This dude creeped me the heck out on The Following, pulling off the deranged serial killer thing very, VERY well. That show getting cancelled has me both ticked off and relieved. Mad, because Kevin Bacon was phenomenal. Relieved, because those creepy cult members just got under my skin. THEY CAN BE ANYWHERE. But Michael would be hella good, because of his serious little face and his acting ability. I know he can transform himself very well into whatever role he's playing, plus the producers would rile up a few folks if they put used a brotha as the vessel.
Samantha Smith (Mary Winchester)
This is the bottom of my top three, and all three are very well known Supernatural characters. I pick Mary Winchester for the same reason that pick #2 and #1, but don't believe as strongly that the producers would want to bring her back as much. No other actress could play their mom/God, as her face is the face of Mary Winchester, and will always be. If we'd seen her face as much on the show as #2 and #1, I would probably pick her over them, simply because choosing a chick to be God is totally something the producers would do!
Jim Beaver (Bobby Singer)
Bobby has always been a father figure to Dean and Sam since John died, and with their daddy issues, why not Bobby! This is one of the reasons for my #1 pick below. Bobby kind of rebelled last season, helping Sam and Cas out in heaven, so God might decide to teach him a lesson and make him his meatsack.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan (John Winchester)
This guy is the perfect fit! I'd be wiling to bet a dolla! A whole dolla on him coming back as God's vessel, even though his kids kind of burned his meatsuit. But hey, it's God...what's a little burnt bones to stop him? Dean and Sam have had some major daddy issues, and with all the angels (Cas especially) having the same daddy issues with God, who else better to play God's vessel? Another hint as to why I'm so certain he'll be back--where in the hell is he? After he helped the boys at the Devil's Trap in season 2, he disappeared into a flash of white light and has never been seen again, save for flashbacks. You think he went to heaven, but he was nowhere to be found up there. Since God's not in heaven, and John's MIA, it's gonna happen this season. John Godchester! Fans love him just like Bobby, and what kind of fun would it be to see those three back together?
Who do YOU want to see play God?
