Third Winchester sibling cast in Supernatural (spoilers)

http://www.tv.com/story/12399.html?tag=topslot;button;

Actor Jake Abel cast as 18-year-old Supernatural sibling; fans think move is actually a bit of trickery.

Let's hope he likes strip clubs and classic rock.


The New Year was still ringing in when [COLOR=#0085ca]news broke[/COLOR] that [COLOR=#0085ca]Supernatural[/COLOR] was making a big change to its tried-and-true formula--producers were adding a third Winchester brother. Now comes word of which lucky young actor will be the newest dreamboat demon killer, and the possibility that this may all be a bit of a prank.
Actor Jake Abel will play brother to Sam ([COLOR=#0085ca]Jared Padalecki[/COLOR]) and Dean ([COLOR=#0085ca]Jensen Ackles[/COLOR]) in the April 23 episode of Supernatural, reports [COLOR=#0085ca]TVGuide.com[/COLOR]. Abel character will be Adam Milligan, the result of some extracurricular sexual activities by dad John Winchester on one of his adventures. Abel's previous credits are pretty limited, with his biggest role being in the short-lived [COLOR=#0085ca]Threshold[/COLOR].
Most fans, upon hearing the news, were outraged as Dean and Sam are the cornerstones of the show and Supernatural creator [COLOR=#0085ca]Eric Kripke[/COLOR] has repeatedly said the show's heart comes from the relationship between the two brothers. However, knowing how tricky the Supernatural writers can be, this whole thing may be more of a stunt--just look at the episode's title: "Jump the Shark."

Love the episode title.

Isn't the thread title itself a spoiler?

The way I see it, this could tie into the larger mytharc. Unlikely.
This could be Trickster Round 3, possible.
This could be a total lie for the sole purpose of sowing confusion and dischord amongst spoiler hounds. Which would be awesome.

Naw. This Jake Abel chap isn't smoking hot. As we all know, this series requires Winchester boys to be smoking hot. It's the law.

This new guy isn't a real Wincest ... er, Winchester boy.

Re: Third Winchester sibling cast in Supernatural (spoilers)

I tend to agree that Kripke and Co. have something else going on. I don't see John Winchester as the type who would've slept with someone and fathered another son and somehow forgotten to mention it to Sam and Dean at some point. Don't see how out of the blue another Winchester boy would suddenly turn up when they're fighting a war against the Queen Bitch of Demons....would make me suspicious.

Me like the new guy.

And it's obviously a joke, but who cares?

Without reading the thread or replies...
Doesn't the thread title kinda spoil an important development that some, perhaps, would not have wished to know?

Where's a Christian Bale smilie when you need it?

Re: Third Winchester sibling cast in Supernatural (spoilers)

Like I've said before, if they really need a new sibling then they should just bring Jo back and reveal that John was her real dad, like they kind of hinted at.

Sorry if I spoiled it but the way it was mentioned around other boards was it was extremely public knowledge that a third winchester would appear this season, just who it was was a secret, which wasn't in the title.

Dim-witted thread title is not a spoiler at all, it doesn't give anything away, nope. Not at all.

Some people.

It was news to me.

Not all of us read publicity material.

Agreed. There's no reason why the OP couldn't
  1. Have put the spoiler information in spoiler code tags
  2. Cleaned up the post to remove the [FONT] and [COLOR] tags of the cut & pasted information

Candlelight, please use a bit more discretion with future posts. Not all of us read or are aware of everything disbursed regarding all entertainment news.
