Jensen Ackles had to admit that putting on a wig for his William Wallace speech which he quotes in “LARP and the Real Girl,” he essentially only did it as a joke. But considering that he’s been doing the show for 8 seasons now, anything is possible. What he thought of that hilariously wonderful final scene of the episode?
“There may have been a flask hidden in my costume somewhere.”
The best part? The long wig was his idea — sort of. “Not really my idea — it was more of a joke. It was more of a joke that was taken the wrong way,” he tells us.
He put the wig on for fun when he found it in the hair and makeup trailer, and he was shocked when Executive Producer Bob Singer told him to keep it on.
“It’s the only time in my life I’ve had longer hair than Jared,” he laments. But as it turned out, the hair was the least of his worries.
In the video linked below, he does explain something that Comic-Con fans who will be there for the ‘Supernatural’ panel will probably watch over and over and over again when the Season 8 gag reel is played (a major highlight of attending the panel).
We shot the video interview in Dean’s new bedroom, which isn’t any fancier than their usual motel digs, but does have a pretty snazzy weapon rack on the wall and Dean’s very own record player. In fact, the props department had removed some of the cooler records from the set — in fear that Jensen might steal them, he teased. The bedroom set is part of the extraordinary Men of Letters bunker that was revealed in last week’s episode, but don’t worry, Impala fans. Even though the Winchesters now have a “batcave,” stocked with new weapons and new information, the show is still about being on the road.
“When the car went down during the [former executive producer] Sera [Gamble] years, I think that hit really hard,” says Ackles. I know it effected me. I was complaining. I’m not one to complain about stuff, I’m not like ‘Sam has more lines than Dean!’ I could care less … but the car is back, and the car is something that I was like ‘Listen, guys, seriously.’ I think when Jeremy [Carver] came in, he was like ‘Why is the car…?’ The car is an essential part of the show and it will continue to be.”
