‘Supernatural’ star Richard Speight, Jr jokes at Jared Padalecki’s new look

For Supernatural and Walker star Jared Padalecki, 2020 has been anything but boring, on personal and professional levels. On the work side, Padalecki, and co-stars Jensen Ackles and Misha Collins are looking to put the finishing touches on fifteen seasons of the long-running CW series, with the remaining seven episodes set to run this fall. Then it’s right onto the set of Walker, a modern take on Chuck Norris series Walker, Texas Ranger that the CW has penciled in for January 2021. On a personal level, Padalecki is balancing his family life with having to say goodbye to his show family after more than 1-1/2 decades while looking to bond with an entirely new team on a show where he’s carrying the responsibilities that come with being the main lead.\

So it’s nice to see those moments when he gets to loosen up a bit- or in this case, when a show friend takes a moment for a little friendly social media ribbing. Perfect example? Richard Speight, Jr., who portrayed the archangel Gabriel and the deity Loki on Supernatural, who decided to engage in a little mischief when he commented on Padalecki’s wife Genevieve’s tweet showing her husband rocking a full beard (quarantine or is he going bearded for Walker?). Let’s just say that Speight, Jr. viewed the image a little differently:

Full disclosure? That was funny. Damn funny. Now while being compared visually to a murderous madman doesn’t exactly rank high on our list of people we want to be told we look like, Padalecki took the comment for what it was: jealous. So being the better person, he extended an olive branch to Speight, Jr.- if he learns to play nice:
