There have been a couple of fantastic, high profile interviews to come out in the last couple of days with Jensen and Jared that just have to be shared! For anyone tearing their hair out for any new info about season seven, these interviews fit the bill!
Oh, right, the disclaimer. If you click on these links, MAJOR SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
First, at EW.com, Sandra Gonzalez interviewed Jared Padalecki. He spills about Sam’s deteriorated mental state, answers an EXTREMELY pressing question about his hair (yes, I like to think I started all that but I know I’m wrong), and guess who’s a closet Fringe fan? This is one of the best interviews I’ve read from Jared in a while.
Oh why not. Here’s the hair answer:
Now, this might sound silly, and it is. But I get this question more than anything, so letâ€™s just put it out there. Whatâ€™s going on with Samâ€™s hair this season?
[Laughs…for a good while]Well, itâ€™s probably more similar to season 6 than season 1. Itâ€™s taken on a life of itâ€™s own. I think one day my hair and the Impala are going to have re-negotiations for season 7. But I guess we pick up season 7 where season 6 left off. So itâ€™s most similar to that. I get a lot of people who liked my hair in season 1. I think, literally, weâ€™ve had times in the past 6 or 7 years when Iâ€™m like, â€œMan, I want to cut my hair really short.â€ Or Jensenâ€™s like, â€œI really want to grow my hair out. It gets cold here.â€ And I suppose they wonâ€™t let us because thatâ€™s just who Sam and Dean are. Oneâ€™s longer-haired and oneâ€™s short-haired. And now that Samâ€™s older, they definitely style it more than let it be floppy and frumpy. I think back in season 1, I was just this 23-year-old kid but I was also 6? 4â€. I had the body of a man but a face of a boy, and they wanted me to be more a boy than a man. So they gave me the original Bieber look. Maybe Bieber stole it from me â€” the whole hair-in-the-eyes, â€œI think Iâ€™m too sexyâ€ attitude. But now Iâ€™m adult Sam â€˜do.
The other one is from Jensen Ackles, by Ileane Rudolph at TV Guide. As you may know, no one gets the scoop on things better than Ileane! Jensen spills a lot here, which is cool. It means that they have finally been given the go ahead to open up about what’s coming. Again, another great interview. Here’s my favorite question:
TV Guide Magazine: Congratulations. Your little show is about to start its seventh season. Can you believe it?
Jensen Ackles: No, I can’t. It was unbelievable we made Season 5, then 6, now we’re doing 7 and they’re already looking into the future of 8, so I’m just like, “What?” It’s not gonna be, “Sam, get me the salt and the gun.” It’s gonna be, “Sam, throw me my walker!”
I’m sure few of us would object to watching Sam and Dean grow old. Jared had also confirmed that they were very optimistic about season 8 at Vancon, so it sounds like we might be in for a two season arc here.
So, what do you think everyone? That countdown clock is getting smaller. Anyone excited about the new season yet? Not excited? Tell us what you’re feeling.
