    He had short hair on "Gilmore Girls." The show where Rory Gilmore chose Jess/Peter Petrelli over Dean Forrester/Jared because Jess was supposed to be the "sexy one" while Dean was the bland nice guy. :p

    Nope. It's understandable, though. Padalecki grew up to be so much scrawnier than Ventimiglia. Look at him. He's so feminine and petite. No wonder Rory went running to sexy, manly Jess instead of him.

    Hmm... I can't say he's really my type.

    On set. The "best friends" pic. It's adorable that they really are.

    And back to the singular subject matter of the thread....Ackles really does remind me of a young Newman.

    I'm just catching up with season 4. So far I've seen the first 3 episodes. What's struck me is how he's really become a man in his looks. Until now, I think there's been a boyishness about him, but now there's a real manliness. I like. :)

    Ackles is one of those guys who was so unbearably pretty when he was a kid that he looked like a girl. I'm serious--as Eric Brady on DOOL he was boy band material times ten. Prettier than Zac Effron of "High School Musical." Turning 30 has done wonders for him. He's very rugged looking in spite of those long eyelashes (ain't life wonderful? The men get the eyelashes that women would die for). I love it when the script tweaks him, like when Sam and Dean captured that blond who'd been, unknownst to her, infected by that vampire and they were trying to get a description out of her:

    No, he was really old. Like 30. :lol:

    He can knock me over with his club and drag me back to his cave any damn time he wants to...

    As to Jensen, yeah he was very pretty young, and age as given him a much nicer look.

    As for acting scenes, I would pick say him over Sam's rotting corpse and his confrontation with Bobby afterwards as two that just kill me each and every time.

    Jensen at 30 from episode 3, season 4. "In the Beginning." That episode tore me up.

    As for acting, I think I prefer Dean's confession to Sam about what he'd done in hell to his admittedly outstanding performance over Sam's dead body in "All Hell Breaks Loose Part 2."

    I think the scenes in All Hell Breaks Loose II are just easier to process. I think all of us can imagine being completely broken by the death of one we love.

    His scenes with Sam over his actions in Hell (both of them for that matter) are both extremely well done, but I don't have quite the connection with them, and its possible its due to the more extreme nature of the ordeal.

    Dean seems more raw and broken in "Heaven and Hell." I guess that's why I prefer that scene. He just seems in despair in AHBLII.

    I agree he's so much hotter now. I liked him in Dark Angel, but it's only now his bangability is through the rough.

    See for me, its the opposite, its Dean who's already broken (which he is), I find actually seeing him literally breaking in Hell Breaks Loose more intertesting. But why quibble (just cause I'm right, hehe) they're all great scenes.

    Haha, zombie thread much?

    I did however start watching Supernatural about six months ago, and its fair to say Jensen Ackles threatens Jamie Bamber for my ultimate man crush title
