Sam and Dean Winchester didn’t exactly have a normal childhood. As Sam put it in the Supernatural pilot, “When I told dad I was scared of the thing in my closet, he gave me a .45!” Furthermore, we know that Sam didn’t always fit in with Dean and dear old dad. While Dean and John were off hunting, Sam often spent time alone in motels, waiting for them to return.
So how did Sam fill all that alone time? He created Sully, an imaginary friend, to help him pass the time. And now that Sam is all grown-up, it seems that Sully could use his help. (Only in Supernatural could your imaginary friend be not-so-imaginary.)
EW has confirmed that Nate Torrence — most recently seen in the comedy Weird Loners — has been cast as Sully, who’s set to appear in an episode titled “Just My Imagination” this season.
We’re guessing Sam and Dean are going to have to put the Darkness search on hold to help out an old friend.
Variety first reported the news.
Supernatural returns Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
