Colin Ford, 16, who played young Sam Winchester on The CW's Supernatural — and also appeared on NBC's Revolution — is the first official actor cast for Stephen King's Under the Dome series, which will air this summer on CBS.

Colin will play Joe, whose character sounds slightly different from the book. According to Wilm on Film, Joe is "a smart kid who discovers that the mysterious barrier covers the whole town — and both his parents are outside of it."

The series will begin shooting in Wilmington, North Carolina, in February.
