Hey, baby! That’s a shout-out from Jared Padalecki of The CW’s Supernatural. I spent the whole weekend at a convention for the show and what a blast. Jared and his co-star Jensen Ackles had the whole crowd in stitches when they took the stage to answer questions March 29.
Jared had this hysterical fascination with a baby in the audience and Jensen was having a great time showing how he could make the crowd cheer louder and softer with the wave of his hands. Like magic! Other guests included Alona Tal, Samantha Smith, Aldis Hodge (Leverage) and the very popular Supernatural angel Misha Collins who was stunned by the number of people in the audience. Yes, we’re impressive like that!
So while I get out from under (you know no one in my household shopped for groceries while I was gone.) you stay here and read about what’s on TV tonight.
