Supernatural goes “Old West” with tonight’s (November 16) episode of the CW series, and last week, we spoke with series stars Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki about what it was like to be cowboys in this installment.
“I don’t think it’s any shock that I’ve always been kind of a fan of the iconic symbol of a cowboy and everything that comes along with that — a fan of western movies and everything,” Jensen enthused to a group of visiting press in Vancouver. “So when I read that Dean gets all excited about it and decides to play the part up, so to speak, I of course got excited as well. I think there’s a nice slow-mo montage of some snakeskin boots and a hat and the whole bit. But yeah, instead of playing FBI agents we get to play Texas Rangers, which is kind of fun.”
“It’s fun to see Dean geek out,” Jared added. “As Sam, it’s fun to see Dean as childish.”
Repeating again that this kind of episode was fun, Ackles expanded upon the “why” of it all. “I like those episodes, kind of lighten it up a bit and allow that humor to kind of come show its face a little bit more,” he said.
You can see video of our interview blow, where Ackles and Padalecki also discuss having fun with their new cast member, the return of Misha Collins’ Castiel, the upcoming Scooby Doo “Scoobynatural” episode, and more.
GO AHEAD… MAKE MY DAY – Castiel (Misha Collins) is reunited with Jack (Alexander Calvert) and together with Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles), they head to a sleepy old western town to investigate a murder. Dean gets to live out his boyhood fantasy when he comes face to face with a famous, gun-slinging outlaw. Nina Lopez-Corrado directed the episode written by Davy Perez (#1306).
