What attracted you to the part of Sam?
“I’ve always been a fan of the horror genre such as The X Files and Twilight Zone and when I read the script it seemed to be much in the same vein. It’s also a fun character that I’ve never been able to play, the reluctant hero; the Luke Skywalker, the Neo from The Matrix. It just seemed like a fun character and a fun role to explore. Also I had met McG because I had tested for Superman and I knew David Nutter, one of the executive producers who also directed our first 2 episodes and I was really excited about the prospect of working on the show.”
Tell us a bit about Sam
“For 18 years of his life, he was part of the trio of Winchester boys and he really didn’t want to be, so when he finally snuck away, he was going to university and wanted a normal life. But now, obviously, with the loss of his girlfriend he’s gone back on the road with his brother. After seeing his father he’s gradually realizing more and more that maybe this is what he was meant to do, but he’s still reluctant, because I think he blames both of loss of his mother and the loss of his girlfriend on this journey that the three of them are on, and he doesn’t understand what’s going on. So he’s both motivated by the loss of the two most important women in his life, but he’s motivated and turned off by it. For him it is like, Well, doing this is what caused my girlfriend to be on fire on the ceiling so maybe I shouldn’t do it.” But also, he’s angered by it, so he wants to go avenge them.”

OMG. Jared and Jensen are here. Tee hee hee.
And yes, I'm officially releasing my inner teen today, 'cause it's CW day, and it's perfectly acceptable to, like, be all goo-goo-ga-ga over the cutie-patootie stars and shows. (Even though we know adults love 'em, too.)
For the time being, though, it's all about the CW prez Dawn Ostroff, who is now addressing us reporters, and I'm making it my mission to find out whether Ostroff plans on bringing back Veronica Mars, One Tree Hill, Gilmore Girls and Supernatural for another season.
Ostroff, on Supernatural: "Supernatural is holding up really well. That is the toughest timeslot on television. Last night it had very, very strong numbers and creatively, the show is absolutely at its best."
Gotta go harass Dawn about picking up our other favorites. I'll be back later with an update from the Supernatural session—and no promises I won't be drooling.
2:35 Update: It's time for those Winchester boys we Supernatural fans love and adore—Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles. They've taken the stage, along with the show's producers, Eric Kripke and Robert Singer, to field reporters' questions and heat this chilly room.
Scoop! Tricia Helfer—Battlestar Galactica's smokin'-hot Number Six—guest stars this season on Supernatural! (I wouldn't recommend staring directly at the screen if she's sharing it with Jared and Jensen 'cause your retinas might burn from the heat.) Helfer's episode airs Feb. 22, and she plays a woman named Molly, who is being chased by an evil-looking farmer on the highway. The farmer appeared on the freeway, and her husband swerved to avoid him, and now her husband is missing. Good stuff!
Aussie terrestrial web Network Ten has inked with Warner Bros. to preem the new series of "Supernatural" online, five days ahead of its bow on Ten.
For added value, season two will be packaged with the series finale of "Supernatural's" first outing.
The deal, an Aussie first, shows the increasing importance of downloads, which all the webs have been experimenting with as auds begin to fragment.
Jeffrey Schlesinger, topper of Warner Bros. Intl. Television, believes the strategy will generate buzz for the hit Stateside skein.
"The digital landscape provides immense opportunity to generate excitement for series prior to premiere and beyond," Schlesinger said. "In many ways, 'Supernatural' is the perfect fit for offering early download as fans tend to be exceedingly active online."
