Oh My Frakking God!

Just watched Supernatural 7.06 and there he was, Michael Hogan! As a guest star! Did I miss something? How was there not any news or blurbs about him making an appearance on the show?!? I've been dreaming for years that SPN can get him and they wasted him on such a small role? ::cry::

But hey, at least he had scenes with Jensen. Going to work that rewind button over and over...

Huh, I knew I knew him. I just couldn't figure out from where.

Do you notice how they always give other famous actors more scenes with Jensen.

He was Colonel Tigh from Battlestar Galactica, and I, like many fans, were quite impressed with MH's nuanced acting talent. :)

And funny you should mention it because I totally noticed they always pairing noted actors with Jensen! ;)

Hee, please butting in anytime!

I do totally agree with you here. Jensen's chemistry with his costars is amazing, and it brought so much to a "simple" scene. Just thinking of him and Death in that diner gives me chills, and that's just one example.

Sometimes last season, I read a critic saying Jensen is a truly talented actor because his costars always appear more compelling in scenes with him than without. I happen to think the same too. :o)

The scenes you listed here are all my favorites too. :o)

Especially that scene of Dean & Alastair in OtHoaP. *shivers* All that angst and creepiness, even when the two of them weren't looking directly at each other and the dialog wasn't that overt (like you are my bunk-mate etc., etc.), Dean's unspeakable abuse at the hands of the ultra-sinister Alastair came through loud and clear with every dip of Dean's head, twitch of his muscles, and that haunted look in his eyes.

But my list is a little longer: I would also add Dean & John in every scene they had together, Dean & Grandpa Campbell from In The Beginning, and Dean & shifter!Vampire from Monster Movie to it too. ;)

If I remember correctly, Kurt Fuller once said in an interview (for and issue of SPN Official Magazine I think) that acting with Jensen was a wonderful experience because Jensen would automatically pick up and react to the nuances from him so that their scene came out more complex.

In my opinion, another example of Jensen makes his co-star more compelling is through his scenes with Jared. As you know, Jared appeared as Lucifer twice, and I've always loved his first enactment and loathed his second. The difference I think is the first time, Jared's Lucifer was opposite Jensen's Dean whereas the second time, Jared's Lucifer was opposite Jake's Michael. The first time, Lucifer was oh-so arrogant, menacing, yet charming against Dean; but the second time, to me, he was like a whiny over-grown teenager with Michael (they both were imho).

IKR?! I was so disappointed when he got killed. For a brief moment, I thought maybe he would be a recurring character, but... *sadface*

I just don't understand when they get an actor with that acting caliber, why waste him like that?

I don't know him but he can be a great hunter!

I may be biased, but I think Michael Hogan is a great nuanced actor. In some ways, Jensen reminds me of him.

I'm so bummed his character got killed. :(
