  • Jim once made a joke that his tombstone would mention his kiss with Mark Sheppard.
  • Around the time "The Future" aired, Jim Beaver tweeted to Andrew Dabb that he was sad he couldn't appear in Season 12 and hoped to appear in and early episode of Season 13. When the Season 12 finale aired, it was revealed that Jim had been lying, as Bobby Singer did get an appearance.
  • Jim believed Bobby held respect for John as a hunter, but not as a father.
  • Jim is one of two Supernatural actors to appear on the critically acclaimed AMC Drama Breaking Bad, the other being DJ Qualls. Jim later plays the same role in the show's spin-off prequel Better Call Saul.
