by at . Comments

Ty Olsson has signed on for a key Supernatural Season 8 role.

The former Battlestar Galactica actor, who actually appeared on a Supernatural Season 2 episode as a vampire named Eli, will portray Benny this fall, another blood sucker who helps Dean escape from Purgatory.

Look for the character to debut on the October 3 premiere and cause some problems for Dean, who owes a huge debt to the undead creature.

A Vampire?! Oooo Dean is going to hate that he owes this monster. Can't wait to see how he deals with that.
