Who else was all kinds of impressed with @mattcohen4real’s television directing debut last night? I’ve had the pleasure of knowing him as a friend and seeing how dang hard he works on the convention circuit, so I was not at all surprised that he showed up thoroughly prepared and stayed humble and gracious the whole time. He rolled with the punches (which included a random blizzard, a location that had music bleeding in from next door even though no one was home and therefore it couldn’t be turned off, and rowdy actors like @jaredpadalecki , @jensenackles and your truly) and gave you guys a pretty spectacular episode, didn’t he? * What was your favorite moment? * * * #supernatural #supernaturalseason15 #gimmeshelter #amara #sam #dean #chuck #spnfamily

Well, that’s a wrap! Setting up for last shot of “SHRINE” film. My god... we all started this damn near a year ago, shut down in March... came back a month ago. It’s been a challenge for everyone. Huge massive thanks to this crew! An awesome bunch that stuck with it through it all. Big thanks to @evanspiliotopoulos who wrote screenplay and directed. @sonypictures and #samraimi for overseeing. Saying thank you now... because when Evan says “CUT” my car is gonna be a damn blur. (I’m waking up with @hilarieburton and two punks!) Love all y’all. To the rest of you folks? Go see this thing... if you dare (scary AF. We hope) Oh... @katieaselton... special thanks pal. Glad we were together thru the insanity.
