Last week we told you about Rob Benedict and Richard Speight Jr.'s Kings of Con fundraiser. They are not the only celebrities making a web series about Fan conventions. Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk are launching their own look at the science fiction convention scene in Con Man. They already had Felicia Day helping them, but now, they have snagged Samantha Smith, our own Mary Winchester for a part in the series. Congratulations Samantha! I'm looking forward to both these ventures, although King of Cons will always be closer to my heart. Rob and Richard have added 2 new perks for the Kings of Con fundraiser. Go check them out.
The results for Zap2It's Social Media Showdown are in. Jensen Ackles is the new King of Social Media! The Final Four had three Supernatural actors competing. Misha Collins went head to head with Ian Somerhalder and won handily. Jensen went up against Felicia Day and managed to score a win. That set up a Misha vs. Jensen final. Jensen managed to unseat Misha from the throne Misha won last year. Congratulations Jensen! What a great showing for a guy who just joined Facebook and Twitter this year!
The Saturn Awards are being voted on and Supernatural has been nominated in the Best Youth Oriented Television Series category. The awards will be announced June 25. We will keep you updated!
Fangasm has tidbits from Jensen's Meet and Greet at Seacon last weekend. This does contain spoilers, so be careful.
Jim Beaver spoke with EW about playing Bobby all these years and his favorite episodes on Supernatural. Here is his Tweet after Inside Man.
The Gag Reel from Tim Omundson's show Galavant has been posted on YouTube. It's great to see him in such a different role from Cain.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan will star as Joe DiMaggio in Lifetime's movie The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe.
Ruth Connell and Travis Aaron Wade were on the April 2 episode of AfterBuzz. It's a really interesting discussion.
Jared Padalecki will be taking part in a Gilmore Girls reunion panel in Austin Texas June 4-7. We will all have to prepare ourselves for hearing him talk about Dean being the character HE played. It really confused me when Supernatural first started.
Misha has posted a video of him reading Once Upon A Potty with and accent.
Supernatural was the second most tweeted show on Wednesday, right after American Idol! That's pretty impressive for a 10 year old show.
That's it for the week! Let us know if you heard of anything we missed!
I love how Travis supports Jared and adores him!
Is the tweet a hint that Cole wants to call Sam "Sammy", no hard feelings?
The way Travis originally posited this is that Cole has a sort of hold over Sam because of a power imbalance while Sam was his prisoner, hence he can use a diminutive (and thus dismissive) name - it was what Sam was always resisting with Dean back when any of this mattered. Now Travis is trying to make it look like a sort of affectionate nickname. I get that Jared has also said that they didn't think it was important when they were filming the episode, but it is a (admittedly to many people, not that important,) symptom of a bigger problem with the minimizing of Sam as a character in his own right, and not just a plot piece to be manipulated to suit the writer's whim on a given week, in the show.
Especially since Dean has been a torturer himself and that will never go away, he'll always carry that knowledge with him. But maybe because Sam tortured Dar to get information on his brother, Sam feels that he can't hold a grudge against Cole.
However, the circumstances were very different because Sam was just a human and for all Cole knew, he could have permanently injured Sam. It didn't look like Cole had anything personal against Sam, he just tried to get to Dean by torturing Dean's little brother.
The t-shirt campaign was awesome. The support of other cast members has been amazing also. Happy to discuss the show problems somewhere else
It warms my heart to see guest stars becoming friends with Jared after being on the show (like DJ Qualls). Somehow it makes them seem more relatable too.
So keeping thumbs up here. :)
eilf, that scares me about the sizes. On the other hand, I don't need to wear it, it's more like Supernatural memorabilia and it's fun to have something that Jared created. And just supporting the cause made me feel good!
My SPN memorabilia collection is pretty small, I have two of those POP toy things of the guys in their FBI suits, and I have a cute pack of cards with SPN chibi characters on it. It will be interesting to see the number and variations of all the actors t-shirts at the next con
So far Misha has worn Jensen's t-shirt at a convention and Jensen has worn Misha's t-shirt on stage. Didn't Jensen say that he wants to have Jared's t-shirt but Jared said something like it'd be skintight?
I have few things collected and I need to see if I will use the shirt. Maybe in my leisure times. I need to try to keep it so that I won't over use it and the picture to vanish.
Even though I didn't really watch Gilmore Girls, I think it's going to be fun to see Jared take part in a panel at a festival since there has been so many Supernatural conventions. I'm interested to see if Jared will show a different side of himself because the shows and his role in the casts are so different. Also whether the Gilmore Girls fandom will treat him differently than this one does.
I am one of the fans who dropped GG when they broke up as this Quote:felt wrong.
The Rory lauralie Dean scene/s are fun to watch and GG introduced me to a wonderful actor and person jared..and I was happy to see that he was in a new show called supernatural .
Anyway I will wait to see if there are any videos or news from the GG con it will be interesting!
I'm under the impression that they made Dean (the character Jared played) a jerk when they were writing the character off the show because Jared was moving on to Supernatural. It seems that there could have been a better way to do it but maybe the writers thought that they didn't have enough time.
Sam could have gotten more tattoos but it's speculated that the star represents Texas.
Could Sam have gotten tattoos for a ritual or a spell? Apparently, Sam will go to the depths to try to save Dean. And Dean already has a "tramp stamp".
