2017/08/23 Kings of Con: Richard Speight Jr. says season 2 will happen once it finds a home

The Kings of Con will live on… it’s just a matter of where.

The digital series, from Supernatural‘s Richard Speight Jr. and Rob Benedict, follows fictionalized versions of the actors as they travel to various fan conventions and experience what it’s like to be rock stars in the convention world… and normal people in the real world. In the show’s first season, which streamed on Comic-Con HQ, several Supernatural stars stopped in, including Misha Collins, Kim Rhodes, Matt Cohen, Jensen Ackles, and Jared Padalecki. Along the way, the show gained a faithful following within the SPN Family. And that’s why Speight and Benedict are already working on season 2, even though it’s yet to find a home.

“Comic-Con HQ is no longer doing scripted content,” Speight says. “So now, we are going to go out and try to find a new home for the show. We’re going to do it, we just don’t know where.” (more…)

While the star of the latest “Supernatural” episode — “Baby” — was undoubtedly the Impala, there was one familiar face that surely delighted longtime fans of the series.

After last appearing in Season 5, Matt Cohen returned as the younger version of John Winchester, appearing in a dream Sam (Jared Padalecki) was having. For Padalecki, having Cohen back on set was a fun little family reunion, even if only for a scene.

“I love Matt. ‘Supernatural’ is such a unique show because even though he hasn’t been on the show in five years, we still see each other several times a year,” the actor tells Zap2it and a group of outlets on the “Supernatural” set. “He’s a buddy, he just became a dad. Most of the time when they call cut, we’d be like, ‘So what’s going on? How’s the baby? How’s the wife?’” (more…)

2012/09/13 “Supernatural” cast members reunite for indie film “Evicted”

“Supernatural” fans know Matt Cohen and Amy Gumenick as the young John and Mary Winchester, a (usually) happily married couple who were torn apart by demons meddling with their sons, Sam and Dean. Though John and Mary are both long dead at this point — RIP — an indie movie is set to reunite them. Sort of.

Matt Cohen and Amy Gumenick, who played the young versions of John and Mary in two different time-travel episodes, are certainly fan favorites, especially given their regular convention appearances. Now, Zap2it can exclusively reveal that they’ll hook up once again for “Evicted,” written and directed by indie filmmaker Brendan Raher.

In “Evicted,” Gumenick stars as Amy Jeté, a morally bankrupt TV producer who discovers she’s being evicted… from existence. Literally. Cohen plays her boyfriend, Scott. It’s Gumenick’s first feature role, though she’s had roles on shows like “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Grimm.” Cohen is best known for his work on “90210” and the very underrated “South of Nowhere.” (more…)
