Here is the second part of the Jared interview from TVGuide!
Up Close with Supernatural’s Jared Padalecki: Part 2
Last week we heard from Jensen Ackles, aka Supernatural’s (Thursdays at 9 pm/ET, CW) Dean. Now it’s costar Jared Padalecki’s turn. In Part 2 of our Q&A, the actor who plays Sam Winchester talks about changing things up to shoot a Christmas movie, working with Peter O’Toole and the best thing about Supernatural.
TVGuide.com: You’re really switching gears for your next movie, aren’t you?
Jared Padalecki: Oh yeah. I’ve gone from a thriller/sci-fi/horror television show to a Christmas movie, which is about a complete 180, but that was part of the appeal ?€” to see if after 44 episodes of the show, I could go back and do something completely different. It was so fun.
TVGuide.com: You play the massively successful artist Thomas Kinkade, whose work I find a little eerie, truthfully.
Padalecki: [Laughs] He’s the best-selling artist in the world. The movie is called Home for Christmas, and it’s about his early years when he started painting to save his mom’s house. It’s been optioned as a trilogy.
