SPN News for Start of Final, Interminable Hiatus

Boy, I lucked out this week with news to link you to! Also thanks to MJ (again!) for some of these. She's great at finding the stuff my Google alerts miss. :)

Late Addition: Ausiello at EW has posted his "bubble list" of TV shows and likelihood for (or status of) renewal. He considers Supernatural a sure thing. Yay!

First up: Kevin Parks, who was Supernatural's first AD for 21 episodes, is riding in The Ride to Conquer Cancer for the BC Cancer Foundation, in honor of director Kim Manners.

The Feb. 12/19 '10 issue of Entertainment Weekly contained mention of Jeffrey Dean Morgan in an article about movie actors doing TV. JDM fans will be thrilled to hear he has 5 (FIVE!) movies expected to release in 2010.

In casting news, former EastEnders actor Adam Croasdell will play Baldur. I'll minimize spoilers and let you Google it to see who that is. I'm very intrigued. :)

This article talks about the upcoming 100th episode. I'd seen pictures of the party, but this was the first write-up I read that mentioned that episode is scheduled to air April 15th.

Related: Dawn Ostroff was interviewed at a 100th-episode event in a non-spoilery video about the show and its run so far. There's also a video with Jim Beaver in this archive. And the TV Addict had some pics and a video. Check out that fourth pic. OMG, they are HUGE! LOL

A new interview with Chad Lindberg was posted last week. I didn't read it because it's spoilery! :)

Misha Collins also did an interview posted last week. It's UK-based, and they just started season 5 over there, so it maybe a lot of what we've already seen/heard. But it's Misha! :)

Do you subscribe to Supernatural magazine? If not, here's a taste of what you're missing: an excerpt from an interview with Jared and Jensen.

Watch with Kristin at E!Online held another CW Awards because they never get any love at the "real" awards. :) Supernatural made a very poor showing. Stoopid vampires.

Unfounded rumors persist in connecting Jensen Ackles to the upcoming Captain America movie (now they're saying he's one of the recent auditionees), but the LA Times gives us a definite casting note. Jensen Ackles joins Neil Patrick Harris, Jason Isaacs, and Bruce Greenwood as the voice of Red Hood in "Batman: Under the Red Hood" to be released on DVD. Additional commentary on the casting can be found here.

E!Online gossip columnist Ted Casablanca talks about wedding dates for the show's stars. Sharing the link dispite my dislike of being lumped in with level-headed fans. :) Ted follows that up with this video with Daneel Harris. It's fluffy, but she's adorable, and talks about Valentine's plans with Jensen.

Check out's "Battle of the Network Hotties". In round 1, all the SPN guys won their competitions (though two were losing when I first saw it!). That link should take you to round 2.

And that will do it for this week!
