Jensen Ackles Was Trolled With Supernatural Jokes By Walker Show Crew

Jensen Ackles gets trolled by the crew of Walker while directing an episode of former Supernatural co-star Jared Padalecki's new show. Ackles and Padalecki starred in 15 seasons of Supernatural as Dean and Sam Winchester, who traveled the country as hunters, vanquishing the likes of vampires, demons, and rogue angels. Supernatural came to an end in 2020, wrapping up their story and allowing Ackles and Padalecki the opportunity to move on to new projects.

Padalecki quickly signed on to play the lead in Walker, a reboot series of Chuck Norris' Walker, Texas Ranger, now in its second season. As for Ackles, he voiced Batman in Batman: The Long Halloween and landed the role of Soldier Boy on the subversive superhero series The Boys. Ackles also sought to further his career as a director, having already helmed six episodes of Supernatural.

Ackles directed an upcoming episode of Padalecki's Walker, where the show's crew saw fit to troll him throughout production. Ackles (via CBR) shared a series of photos on Instagram, each one featuring a different director's chair for every shooting day. Each chair has a distinct reference to Ackles, with the first displaying his Supernatural character's name, "Dean Winchester." The next day, he was given a chair that reads "Soldier Boy," followed by one with his parents' names on it, reading, "Alan & Donna's Son." Ackles was then provided a chair saying "Red Hood," a character he voiced in Batman: Under the Red Hood, before finally receiving a chair on his last day that said "Jensen Ackles," which was accompanied by his comment, "I don't even know who I am anymore." Check out Ackles' series of photos from the Walker set below:

Given the brotherhood formed by Ackles and Padalecki across 327 episodes of Supernatural, Padalecki likely played a part in the humorous director's chairs on the set of Walker. Ackles and Padalecki are also no strangers to pranks, having trolled others in the past. For example, the actors pranked Stephen Amell in 2016 by pretending to urinate on the nameplate of the Arrow stars parking spot. Amell even responded to their prank, saying, "That's the best thing that has ever happened in my parking spot."

Padalecki's Walker is still going strong, with a planned prequel series called Walker: Independence in the works, and Ackles' performance as Soldier Boy can be seen when The Boys returns for its third season on June 3rd. Ackles is also part of the planned Supernatural prequel series, Winchester, which would focus on Sam and Dean's parents, with Ackles serving as the narrator. However, details on when Winchester may manifest are still scarce. So, for now, Supernatural fans can rest easy knowing that the camaraderie between Ackles and Padalecki is alive and well on the set of Walker.
