Big Sky S02 Finale Images: Will Jensen Ackles Go Ryan Phillippe Route?

Along with Amazon's The Boys, The CW's Jared Padalecki-starring Walker, and the newly-greenlighted Supernatural prequel spinoff series The Winchesters, Jensen Ackles can now add ABC's Big Sky to his resume. In a move that we have to give the series a ton of credit for considering how quiet they kept it, Ackles will be joining Kylie Bunbury and Katheryn Winnick as Beau Arlen, described as a "confident and charming good ol' boy from Texas" who takes over temporarily as Sheriff as a favor to his friend Sheriff Tubb (Patrick Gallagher). And from what we saw in the teaser that was released as well as these preview images, he's going to be making the most of his time on the show. But just one thing? As much as the overview reads that Beau "may just stick around for a while"? Yeah, well, we were also sold on the idea that Ryan Phillippe would be on for more than one episode so take that for what it's worth. Or what if it's the opposite? What if Ackles' Beau is actually a "big bad" sent in to clean up the season's mess? We'll know soon enough…
