Big Sky Season 3 Confirmed; Jensen Ackles Joins as Series Regular

Okay, maybe this is just ABC's attempt to throw folks off of the "Ryan Phillippe" theory but it would appear that Jensen Ackles will be hanging out a little longer on ABC's Big Sky than first thought. Earlier this afternoon, the network confirmed that Ackles' Beau Arlen will become a series regular with the third season. In addition, Jamie-Lynn Sigler will also be a series regular during the third season. Ackles joins Kylie Bunbury and Katheryn Winnick as Arlen, who's 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).
