This past weekend, Supernatural took part in the WB press junket & photo shoot.
Both Jared Padalecki & Jensen Ackles made the trek out to South Vancouver. However, only Mr. Ackles took the time to come over to the street to sign some autographs & talk.
Jensen told us he would only sign 1 each because as he put it "we must have a tonne of them signed now" & I explained to him that there was always new shots out there...and in this particular instance, I was getting a photo done that I didnt want to start till I got the 1 non-regular on it first.
While talking to Jensen, he looked at my photo, a trio photo of him, Jared & Jeffrey Dean Morgan (already signed by JDM from the encounter in the previous blog last week). He asked me when I got it signed, I told him on the set of the Dibbuk Box, which he is here doing, which Jensen replied "I know".
I then told him how JDM only had good things to say about him & Jared & Jensen replied "he better if he knows whats good for him".
Then he was asked if he might see JDM while here, which he then told us he was going to be seeing him that night for dinner (night BEFORE their Superbowl rendevous at Red Card).
I then asked if he thought any chance of JDM ever being on SPN again, and he answered that JDM was "too big for us" now as he was walking away.
He was then on his way...likely to get ready for his dinner plans that evening.
This weekend WB had a press junket in Vancouver for a variety of shows, including Smallville.
While other shows seemed to have 2-4 cast members there for promotion, it appears Smallville only sent one. The lovely & friendly Erica Durance.
Upon leaving Ms. Durance (with her husband in tow) came over to the 2 of us waiting & signed a couple autographs each & did a photo with.
She thanked us for coming & was quickly on her way. Heres a couple pics I snapped of her as she departed.

Yesterday I caught up with the set of a new thrilled "Dibbuk Box" in South Vancouver.
The feature film stars Kyra Sedgwick (The Closer) & Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Supernatural & Greys Anatomy) who are divorced from each other, but are brought together to try and find a way to end a curse on their daughter after she buys a box that containts an angry evil spirit.
The film is based on a "true story" in the sense that its premise is based on an article from an L.A. Times reporter about a similar box bought by a girl on ebay some time ago that caused its owners a variety of bad luck.
So on this day Jeffrey Dean Morgan was on set. Prior to Mr. Morgans scenes there was another series of scenes done with a different actor. The other actors scene showed him arriving home, and going inside to find his mother had been killed. In Mr. Morgans scene, he would show up in a car, get out, walk to the door & knock on the door. The other actor would answer it & a conversation between the pair took part where the other actor tells Jeffreys character about the box and its danger... then Jeffrey goes inside to continue the talk... and thats all we were able to see outside.
After his scene, the movies publicist brought Mr. Morgan over to the 3 people waiting across the street to take photos & sign autographs. While my friend knew of his work on Grey's Anatomy, it was his work on Supernatural I knew best. He asked me if I had gotten the boys before while I was getting him to sign a trio photo that featured him with his TV sons, I told him yes a few times & he called them "great guys" & we wrapped up out meeting with him & he went off his way we went off ours.
And for the record..I have NO IDEA what is happening in photo 6.
I occasionally argue with inanimate objects, but I usually win. So its all good.
