Count Jeffrey Dean Morgan among those Supernatural fans anxious for a John Winchester resurrection.
The actor — who last appeared as Sam and Dean’s late pa nearly a decade ago — tells TVLine that he wants back in bad. “I would absolutely love to come back,” he says. “There’s no official talk that I know of, but I’m always in contact with Jared [Padalecki] and Jensen [Ackles] — they’re very good friends of mine”.
“With me it’s always been about scheduling,” adds Morgan, who just booked a season-long stint on The Good Wife. “But hopefully we can find a little time and they’ll write something that I can do. It would be a great joy to go back and play with those guys.”
And Morgan only has one small request of The CW: he wants Ackles to helm his comeback episode. “I would love to have Jensen direct me, honestly.” he says. “I think that would be a very cool deal. That’s always what I’ve been pushing for.”
Creatively, there has never been a better time for Papa Winchester to resurface. At Comic-Con last weekend, executive producer Andrew Dabb hinted that Season 11 (bowing Oct. 7) will dredge up “some things” from Sam and Dean’s past that “we haven’t dealt with in a long time but will have some really interesting repercussions for both guys.”
Dabb later added that Morgan’s return was inevitable. “To me, it’s not if he comes back, it’s when. When’s the right time? When it’s going to be for maximum impact? What you don’t want to do is bring a character like that back and waste the opportunity.”
Jeffrey Dean Morgan was recently added to The Good Wife as a series regular, but his Extant co-star Halle Berry isn’t so sure she’s onboard with Morgan’s new gig.
“I don’t even know how I feel about sharing him with The Good Wife,” Berry joked during an interview with EW’s Lynette Rice in the Entertainment Weekly Lounge at San Diego Comic-Con. “I’m ambivalent. I’m not sure I’m happy about this yet. He’s my man. ‘What do you mean, going on The Good Wife?’”
Morgan was cast as Alex on the CBS drama, a “calm, experienced hourly investigator” hired by Alicia (Julianna Margulies) during the show’s upcoming seventh season. So, will Morgan and Marguiles start an on-screen relationship?
“He better not be,” Berry joked. “I’m going to be highly upset.”
Added Morgan: “Halle probably wouldn’t allow that, so I’m going to have to say no. ‘Halle won’t let me be your love interest, Julianna. I’m so sorry.’”
“He’s mine,” added Berry. Watch the video below.
