Casting Updates for 'Supernatural,' 'Bates Motel'


Supernatural has a new angel, which is good since Castiel seems to be human now. Tahmoh Penikett will have a recurring role in the upcoming ninth episode. He plays Ezekiel, a "dignified warrior angel injured in the Fall." Ezekiel starts his run on the series with the season premiere, currently slated for October 8th on the CW. Penikett's credits include a wide range of genre projects: Dollhouse, Battlestar Galactica, Trick 'r Treat, and Continuum, to name a few. 

Over on A&E, Bates Motel has added a new recurring role for their upcoming second season (due in the beginning of 2014). Paloma Kwiatkowski will play Cody Brennan, "a small town party girl who befriends Norman and bonds with him, showing him how having fun and 'acting out' can sublimate pain – at least for awhile." With last season's love interest Bradley moving on to Norman's brother Dylan, and with Norman flat-out rejecting Emma's advances, he needs a new girl to ruffle Mother's feathers. A newcomer to the industry, Kwiatkowski can be seen in the upcoming Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.
