Actor bio: Beaver was born in Laramie, Wyoming, the son of Dorothy Adell (née Crawford) and James Norman Beaver, Sr. (1924-2004), a minister. His father was of French and English heritage (the family name was originally de Beauvoir, and Beaver is a distant cousin of author and philosopher Simone de Beauvoir and Pennsylvania governor General James A. Beaver), and his mother is Scots-German-Cherokee and a descendant of senator, governor, and three-time U.S. Attorney General John J. Crittenden Although his parents' families had both been long in Texas, Beaver was born in Laramie while his father was doing graduate work in accounting at the University of Wyoming. Returning to Texas, Beaver Sr. worked as an accountant and as a minister for the Church of Christ in Fort Worth, Texas, Crowley, Texas, Dallas, Texas and Grapevine, Texas. For most of Jim Beaver's youth, his family lived in Irving, Texas, even while his father preached in surrounding communities. He and his three younger sisters (Denise, Reneé, and Teddlie) all attended Irving High School (where he was a classmate of ZZ Top drummer Frank Beard), but he transferred in his senior year to Fort Worth Christian Academy, from which he graduated in 1968. He also took courses at Fort Worth Christian College. Despite having appeared in some elementary-school plays, he showed no particular interest in an acting career, but immersed himself in film history and expressed a desire for a career as a writer, publishing a few short stories in his high school anthology.

Maybe it's only me on this, but I thought that Jim Beaver's protrayal of Bobby was very good in the finale this year and over the entire season. I mean, I've always loved the character, but I felt that the writer's finally let him contribute more. He has always played a role as a father figure but this season they used that more and additionally, he really aided the guys in times of need. I loved how he came up with blessing the water in the sprinklers and making that opening for Dean and Sam to get into the house. And his rational behind Dean seeing things and pointing it out to Sam. His line about almost being hell's bitch and therefore being able to see hell's other bitches was classic Supernatural...I was really glad that Bobby got to speak those lines and stay with the Winchesters, esp. Dean, so close to the end.
