‘Supernatural’ boss to fans: ‘Withhold judgment on Paris Hilton’

It stands to reason that a Supernatural season built around a looming apocalypse would feature a guest turn by Paris Hilton. But series creator Eric Kripke says the casting stunt – airing next Thursday – doesn’t herald the end of the world as we know it. “I don’t think we’re gassing up the motorcycle to jump the shark yet,” insists Kripke of the episode, which finds the hotel heiress playing “a monster who takes the form of Paris Hilton… It’s a fun, irreverent episode about modern celebrity. [Fans] should withhold judgment until they see it.” Kripke insists the idea to cast Hilton originated in the Supernatural writers room and not in a CW executive suite. “There was no pressure from the studio or network to do any stunt casting,” he says. “We had our wish list in the room of who would be the best spokesperson for a satirical monologue on modern celebrity and Paris Hilton was at the top of the list. We never expected in a million years that she would do it, but I spoke to her and she got the joke immediately and signed on quickly. “I give her a lot of credit for being a hell of a good sport,” he continues. “The fact that she was game to play the part speaks volumes about her sense of humor.” What say you, Supe Nazis? Willing to keep an open mind until next Thursday? Or does the mere mention of Paris Hilton’s name in connection with Supernatural make you die a little inside? Sound off below!...

Our Interview With Supernatural Creator – Eric Kripke

What does, “God has the left the building,” mean? Eric Kripke: God in the mythology of our show has gone missing. He’s not in heaven. There is a bureaucracy of angels who don’t necessarily have the most benevolent intent – who are running things in his absences. That’s sort of why Zachariah and his ilk have jump-started the apocalypse. I think they just got impatient and there was no one telling them not to. You said that you had a five-year plan for the show. This is going to be season five, so what are your plans? Eric Kripke: The real answer is that we never dreamt it would go five years. At least I didn’t. So yes, there was a five-year plan, and a five-year story. We are in the fifth year of that story. This is the last chapter of this volume. We plan on telling it well and climatically. We certainly are also batting around ideas, and there’s no reason why there can’t be another volume, and no reason a new epic story can’t begin. We’re not going to stretch this one out past its expiration date. We’re not going to drag this one to a place it isn’t. We’re going to tell it the way it supposed to be told and it’s going to end. Another story can begin. That’s what we’re preparing for, and well just see how the season goes.

Supernatural Scoop: Get Ready for the Apocalypse

Want to know what’s up with the Winchester Brothers? We asked Supernatural creator Eric Kripke to spill some secrets about the last two episodes of the truly scary heading-toward-the-Apocalypse fourth season. Here’s his exclusive scoop for TV Guide Magazine. What are the major confrontations in these last two episodes? OK, a spoiler because I love you: Dean [Jensen Ackles] and Uncle Bobby [Jim Beaver] learn about Sam’s little demon blood addiction. They’re understandably horrified, but instead of having yet another argument with Sam [Jared Padalecki], they take action. Drastic action. Action that will drive a wedge between Sam and Dean. Uber-demon Lilith told Sam that she was not going to survive long enough for the “good parts” of the Apocalypse. Sam is obsessed with killing her. How do Dean and Bobby feel about that? I don’t think anyone has a problem with killing Lilith. It’s how Sam wants to kill her that’s troubling–it’s the copious amounts of demon blood that he’s knocking back. I think Dean and Bobby want to kill Lilith and save the world, they just don’t want to forfeit Sam’s soul in the process. Does Sam’s demon pal Ruby play a role in these episodes? Yes, she plays a large role in the final episodes. Sam and Dean split up, basically, and so Sam joins Ruby on a final run to kill Lilith, while Dean is hanging out with the Angels, trying to do the same. What will the angel Castiel and his boss Zacharias be up to? They’ll be preparing Dean for his final, destined role in this battle. The Apocalypse is coming down to the wire, and it’s time for Dean to play his part. While we’re on the subject, besides Zach and Cass, a lot of the Angel gang are coming back–Anna makes an appearance, and even the Prophet Chuck pops in for...
