Supernatural's icky race and gender issues squick me the fuck out to the point where I can't ignore it, but there are in fact some actors for whom I'm willing to override that squick.

I love Bunny Colvin leik whoah! And I really love Robert Wisdom.
I would so endure Supernatural for Robert Wisdom. And there are only a few actors for whom I'd cross that line.
Aw, hell. I'd cross that line for just about entire cast of my beloved The Wire.
Do you know how I found out? Do you?
Someone on my FList (I forget who) was threatening to write a The Wire/Supernatural crossover about how Bunny Colvin ended up hosting Uriel.

Damn it, damn it, damn it! I'm going to have to Netflix Supernatural S4, aren't I? Just so I can watch Robert Wisdom do his thing.
Bah! I'll put up with the icky race and gender issues just to catch Robert Wisdom on Supernatural.
