I’m a sucker for gag reels and teaser trailers for new seasons. One of the great parts of panels, especially on a show like ‘Supernatural,’ which can be so dark, it’s fun to get up there and laugh and remember we’re only telling a story. Seeing Eric Kripke and Ben Edlund up there being so funny always makes me laugh.

There are a lot of actors that I really love to watch, actors who I have fun watching – I think Johnny Depp is phenomenal. But I wouldn’t want that career as much as I’d like a career like Tom Hanks – he kind of represents the everyman.

There’s a book that I read, really a great book – it’s called ‘Lone Survivor’ and I think they’re trying to make it into a movie. I would love to play Marcus Luttrell, who was the author and the ‘lone survivor.’ He’s a national hero; he’s very courageous and heroic in insurmountable danger, so it’s something I’d love to explore.
