Jim Beaver has been all over our TV screens lately, and we're loving it. Following his surprise return to "Supernatural" this week and his critically-lauded arc on Season 4 of "Justified," the beloved character actor is visiting ABC's "The Middle" on April 10.
Beaver will play Brick's (Atticus Shaffer) "not-so-trustworthy" Scout Master Mr. Stokes, who apparently has a fairly relaxed policy about letting his charges play with knives and axes.
In The Huffington Post's exclusive clip above -- which has echoes of Beaver's fan-favorite "Supernatural" character, Bobby Singer -- Mr. Stokes proves reluctant to divulge the "classified" location of the group's expedition into the woods, much to Mike's (Neil Flynn) chagrin.
As if Beaver's appearance wasn't enough casting candy, "30 Rock's" Jack McBrayer also makes an appearance in the episode, playing Dr. Goodwin, a potential employer for matriarch Frankie (Patricia Heaton).
Check out the official description for the April 10th episode of "The Middle" below.
"Dollar Days" -- After successfully graduating from dental assisting school, Frankie attempts to interview for a job but discovers that, when asked about herself, she doesn't quite know how to describe who she is. Meanwhile, when Axl gets his band their first paying gig at the Orson Dollar Days, Sue becomes a 'Yoko' to boyfriend Darrin's 'John' and begins to offer unwanted advice to the group; and when Brick informs Frankie and Mike that he has joined the Prairie Scouts, Mike ends up reluctantly having to lead his quirky troop's camping trip.
"The Middle" airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
