Winter TCA Press Tour 2012: “The Bad-Ass Boys of The CW” Live Blog

3:02PM: This afternoon’s panel highlighting the “Bad-Ass Boys of the CW” includes NIKITA’s Shane West, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES’ Joseph Morgan, GOSSIP GIRL’s Ed Westwick, SUPERNATURAL’s Jared Padalecki, HART OF DIXIE’s Wilson Bethel and RINGER’s Kristoffer Polaha.

3:05PM: “For the moment he has tunnel vision and a one track mind to get his girl Blair Waldorf,” says Ed Westwick when asked if he misses playing up Chuck’s devious side. “So hopefully we do see his devious side, the devil within.” Interjects RINGER star Kristoffer Polaha, “Wait a second, you’re British?”

3:09PM: Rather than answer a question about what’s in store for Sam in the second half of SUPERNATURAL’s seventh season, Padalecki jokes that he’s distracted by the enormous photo of a shirtless HART OF DIXIE star Wilson Bethel that is currently being projected on the screens within the hotel ballroom.

3:11PM: “I was shocked,” says Kristoffer Polaha, referencing not so much the shocking turn of events during RINGER’s midseason finale, but rather his inclusion on this “Bad-Ass” panel.

3:12PM: Does THE VAMPIRE DIARIES’ Joseph Morgan ever worry that his character of Klaus might become too soft to remain on the show? “Yes, I do worry about the writer’s making him softer or too good,” admits Morgan. “But I think they can make him more human and relatable without taking away any of his bad-assness. I think it’s possible to be somewhat of a relatable anti-hero while still tearing out hearts and breaking necks.”

3:14PM: “I’m faking it,” says a half-joking Shane West when asked about the bad-ass fighting skills he brings to NIKITA.” Maggie [Q] is kind of a phenom, it’s just embarrassing how good she is at what she does so you kind of have to live up to those expectations. I spend a lot of time in the gym and at the gun range.”

3:15PM: “I’m pretty confident that it will be a bad sign for my career when they tell me to stop taking off my shirt,” says HART OF DIXIE star Wilson Bethel when asked if he expects to take off his shirt each and every episode. “I’ll take it that my time on the CW is short-lived. Thankfully, they told me to take the cowboy hat off which I don’t think was my look.” [Read more…]

Why I Hate… SUPERNATURAL

By: C.T. [Couch Tater]

Yes, that’s right. I said it.

I have a major hate-on for SUPERNATURAL. I don’t dislike or feel ambiguous toward the show, but feel pure, unadulterated hate.

Now I know that for some of you, them’s fightin’ words. Mention SUPERNATURAL and many of you — our host, the TV Addict himself — go weak in the knees and look for new superlatives with which to sing its praises, all of which leaves me saying… “seriously?”

For the record, nobody was more stoked for the launch of this show than I, a lover of just about all things horror. Yes, I’m the guy who can be found sitting in the corner of a dark bar making a case for the argument that the second Nightmare On Elm Street flick — Freddy’s Revenge — should not be considered a true sequel in much the same way that Season of the Witch (which is completely free of Michael Meyers) should not be considered a true Halloween flick. And every month, I run to the mailbox to get the latest novels from my horror book of the month club (featuring such authors as Richard Laymon, Edward Lee and Douglas Clegg).

Yeah, I like my horror.

Behind the Scenes with SUPERNATURAL

This week’s SUPERNATURAL video takes us behind the scenes of the show’s Visual Effects Department.

Fun fact: The TV Addict actually visited the VFX trailer on my SUPERNATURAL Set Visit last spring. Ivan Hayden and hit team work around the clock in a very small dark trailer in order to composite the phenomenal special effects you see each and every week.

How good are they at their job? Before they work their magic, Jared and Jensen actually look like this.

SUPERNATURAL Secrets I

If there’s one thing this TV Addict has learned in the almost two years of writing about television, it’s that SUPERNATURAL fans devour anything and everything with regards to their favorite show.

Turns out I’m not the only person who’s clued into this. Warner Bros. — in an effort to help spread the SUPERNATURAL love — will be providing theTVaddict.com with bi-weekly online videos in an effort to raise awareness about one of television’s most underappreciated gems.

Today’s featurette is called “Creature Secrets: SPFX Makeup” and features Toby Lindala [Make-up FX Supervisor], Lance Web [Project Coordinator] and Chris Clark [Senior Make-up FX Artist] as they show fans what goes into making some of the fabulous prosthetic and not to mention terrifying creations for SUPERNATURAL.

Enjoy, and don’t forget to spread the SUPERNATURAL love!
