Jensen Ackles article in SFX Magazine (but first I’d like to thank one of my good friends Jo Wren for posting this, all credit goes to her)

Q: How does it feel to start year ten with Dean as a demon?

J: We’re still getting our bearings and trying to figure out where we’re going to go, but the whole demon Dean storyline is fun and new and interesting and different.

Q: What’s different about this Dean?

J: Everybody’s asked if this will be a darker Dean, but it’s actually the opposite. It’s a lighter Dean. It’s a Dean without having the weight of the world on his shoulders and trying to fight the good fight, protect his brother and do the right thing. This Dean doesn’t give a shit at all. He’s going to have a good time. He’s going to drink as much as he wants and get into fights and hook up with babes. It’s the life Dean wished he could live but he can’t because he’s the good guy.

Q: Would you say the episodes are more comedic in tone?

J: It’s not comedic. It’s a personal choice I made with the character. He’s not funny. He doesn’t care to the point that it’s kind of scary.He’s just flippant about everything even when he hears his brother might be in some serious trouble. He’s like “I don’t care” which to me is scarier than if he was like [growls]

…wearing the converse with [the suit] was something I was adamant on since day one. Lots of people thought it was a terrible idea but I thought it would take the curse off wearing a suit. It stops it looking like ‘man in suit’, which can be a bit imposing. The thing about the Doctor is that flash of anarchy that goes through him.

It’s a culture that needs to be shared not defended. It’s up to us Elders of Geekdom to encourage new generations to read their first Deadpool comic or watch Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan for the first time. It’s our responsibility to make sure they watch the Star Wars movies in the right order (and perhaps skip a few). Geeks deserve a giant supportive community that can say “Welcome!” in every language from Klingon to Ewokese. We have to open up the community to newbies of both genders and make them feel accepted. The more geeks the better: that way we can ensure more of the movies, TV, books, comics and games we love will be released.
