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.\

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:
