Did You Know?
Originally Jensen Ackles
auditioned for the role of Sam Winchester. When Jared Padalecki
came in and read for Sam a slight recasting was done. Producers called Jensen and asked if he'd rather use his charm for Dean, saying he was the Han Solo character of the duo and what kid didn't grow up wanting to be Han Solo? Jensen accepted. It became known that he was previously interested in that role, because Dean was funny. See more
