Supernatural is getting a little scarier this season.
Robert Englund, best know as Freddy Krueger in the original A Nightmare on Elm Street movies, has signed on to guest star on Supernatural. Though, in this role, he won’t be killing anyone, instead, he’ll actually be trying to save the Winchester boys.
Inside sources say that Englund will play a character known as “Dr. Robert.” According to executive producer Sera Gamble, “Hunters often find themselves in situations where they need medical attention but can’t exactly stroll into an ER. … Robert plays an unlicensed doc who makes his living stitching folks up on the down low. One of our guys goes to him with a life-or-death problem.”
