Misha Collins

  • Throwback Thursday: The Conventional Wisdom of Misha Collins

    This is an oldie that we've pulled out a couple of times, but it's a goodie!  A WFB classic.  In honor of our overlord, Misha Collins, who is celebrating his 41st birthday today, we present to you a sampling of the soundbites that have been heard from Misha through the years at various conventions he attended.  These are all from ones I and other WFB staff members have attended.  

    The original article was from 2012, when Misha was still rather fresh on the con circuit.  Misha told me at Comic Con in July that he's done 70 conventions now (I was at his first!).  As a bonus, I've thrown in a few more soundbites and photos from conventions in the last couple of years at the end of this article!  After all, for what this guy does for the fans, he deserves to be heard more than ever!  

    Without further adieu, I present The Conventional Wisdom of Misha Collins!

  • Interview With Misha Collins - Comic Con 2015

    I always love interviewing Misha.  He's so pleasant, happy, fun, and we don't really have to talk about the show with him, not that he had a lot to share about Castiel anyway.  When talk breaks out about GISHWHES and fan conventions with him, that subject matter is just as entertaining.  There is one spoiler in here about season eleven for Castiel.  Otherwise, just enjoy the fun.

  • Performing the Story: Supernatural 10.14 "The Executioner's Song"

    Each week, we're granted great performances on Supernatural---but sometimes they transcend into extraordinary. “The Executioner's Song” is filled with exceptional performances that bring the story to exquisite life, touching us deeply. Let's look at the magnificent acting done in this episode.
  • Congratulations Misha!

    Misha Collins, aka Castiel, won the "Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Actor" category at the 2015 People's Choice Awards!

    Misha later expressed his gratitude on Twitter:

    "Wait, i won a PCA? WTF? Well, i'm back to thinking this vote was rigged. I'm not even an actor (or a sci-fi/fantasy.) PS: Thank you guys,"

    "Seriously, thank you guys. They give these things to real big shots, like @TheEllenShow & @RobertDowneyJr & @JensenAckles! Kinda cool,"

    In honour of Misha' accomplishment, The WFB put together this little tribute.
  • Misha Collins Wins For Supernatural at People's Choice Awards 2015


    Congratulations Misha Collins, now a People's Choice Award Winner!  

    The category of Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Actor was a strange one this year, pitting 3 "Supernatural" actors with 2 "Vampire Diaries" ones, but Misha Collins ended up emerging as the victor!  Score one (and rightfully so) for his very enthusiastic fan base!  We're glad to see Supernatural finally take this category.  

    Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Actor
    Ian Somerhalder
    Jared Padalecki
    Jensen Ackles
    Misha Collins
    Paul Wesley

    Unfortunately, it was the only category Supernatural took this year, losing Favorite TV Sci-Fi show to Beauty and the Beast and Favorite TV Duo to The Vampire Diaries.  The results can be found here!



  • Supernatural VanCon: "M" Day! Part 2 - Misha!

    Part 1 of my report on "M" day (aka Saturday) at the Vancouver Supernatural convention featured the indomitable Mark Sheppard, plus Tahmoh Penikett, Matt Cohen and the myriad of other guests who had shared Friday's fun with us. Saturday afternoon's fun began with a splash, watching Gil McKinney and Matt Cohen get wet for the ALS Ice Bucket challenge!
  • WFB Roundtable Interview With Misha Collins, San Diego Comic Con 2014

    Misha was our last interview of the day.  Honestly, we were lucky we got five minutes with him considering our previous interview, Jared, was cut short at three minutes.  Misha was pleasant as always, and managed to maintain that dry humor we all know and love.  Warning, there are some spoilers for season ten, but they're not too bad.  Plus there's a cute answer he gives me when I ask him about The Greatest American Hero.  He turns into such a fan boy!  

  • Misha Collins on Tonight's (6/16) "Whose Line is it Anyway." See a Preview Clip!

    We heard that he did this taping weeks ago, but the episode of "Whose Line is it Anyway" with Misha Collins airs tonight!  It airs at 8 pm ET on The CW.  As usual, The CW usually graces us with a nugget for the upcoming episode on Youtube.  Here's your chance before the episode airs to see Misha get goofy with the regular cast!

  • From Our Archives: The Conventional Wisdom of Misha Collins

    This is a repost of something we ran this time last year.  Since it was Misha Collins' birthday earlier this week (Happy Belated 39th Birthday Misha!) and he is again entertaining folks with his quirkiness and offbeat humor at Vancon (Bardicvoice, Far Away Eyes' and Tigershire are having a great time BTW), I figured this recap of his wilder con moments deserved another read.  Because it's hilarious.  Presenting, The Conventional Wisdom of Misha Collins.

  • Marvelous Misha Word Search

    The next Supernatural word search features someone we adore very much.  It'll all about Misha Collins and our favourite angel, Castiel.  Both have said and done some interesting things.  

  • "Supernatural" Convention report: Viva Las Vegascon “Part Two“ Jensen and Jared with a side order of Misha! by sweetondean

    IT'S J DAY!

    All photos are taken by me.
    Truth is, I come to these conventions for many reasons, but the main reason is to see the boys and if truth be known, one specific boy"¦or man"¦MANLY MAN (I mean these boys are in the 30's after all!).
    Normally the Js are on the Sunday of the convention. They're the showstopper if you may, but at Vegascon, they were on the Saturday. Whether this was because of flights back to Vancouver and timings of work or whether it was because they wanted to be able to play up after their convention commitments I have no clue "“ but I'm betting on the later!
    Jared had his mum and dad in town; they were with him at the convention at the panel and in his photo-ops. Clif flew down on Friday and Johnny and Sean came in with the boys on the Saturday.
    But once again, I've jumped ahead! The day started a bit later than the usual J day. Normally I'm up at about 5.30am getting ready for a 7.30 breakfast start "“ or something along those lines. But this time, we could actually have a relaxing morning. The Js weren't arriving at lunch until 2 and before then, we had Emily Perkins' and Misha's panels. So there was plenty of time to get ready, sort the makeup, do the hair"¦prepare for what was ahead!
  • Bardicvoice's VanCon Reports, Part 7: Richard Speight, Jr. & Matt Cohen, Jim Beaver & Misha Collins

    (All photos from sweetondean)

    I've chosen to consolidate the last two panels on Saturday because I didn't get as many notes from them as from others. The Dick and Matt show was a lot of fun and included some tasty treats. The Jim and Misha panel was less rewarding to me personally because it had little substance, devolving instead into silliness. Not to say that silliness isn't fun, but it's not something I can take notes on and recap without losing its essence!

    These panels – and the two Marks panel as well – demonstrated that our guest actors have learned a new trick convention goers should prepare for:  when thrown questions they weren't prepared to answer, they turned the question back on the asker, putting them on the spot to provide their answer, and even pulling them up on stage to face the audience while doing so to make a point about how hard it is to provide such off-the-cuff answers and be entertaining in the process. So all those questions about “What would you do if...” or “How do you think this should happen” or “Describe [certain people on the show] in three words or less” are now fair game as things whoever asks them might have to answer, instead of getting answers from the guests. Beware!

    There was also a really funny trend that started being called out by the two Marks in their panel and continued through the following ones, which boiled down to the guest pointing out whenever questions addressed to the guests were really questions about Jared and Jensen. As Sheppard put it, the typical such question ran, “I think you're wonderful, but what was it like working with Jared and Jensen?” They were funny about it and they all clearly do love the guys, but what made them light up were questions about their own acting, past or current projects, and topics of interest to them. Choose wisely, if you choose to ask!
  • The Conventional Wisdom of Misha Collins

    In honor of Misha Collins' 38th birthday today, I wanted to share just a few of the inspiring...no...brain twisting... no...very informative...no...completely filthy...hmm...totally off the wall...always entertaining soundbites from him over the last few years, ever since he found his way on "Supernatural's" radar in season four.  I've pored through our collection of Misha panels from the cons and picked a few of the outspoken gems.  After all, he may be an angel, but he's no boy scout!  Every comment made here is in pure fun too, so for those that don't know Misha, you're missing out.  

    I'll issue the innendo/profitanity warning now.  Enjoy these random quotes in no particular order. 
  • WFB Exclusive: MTV - Misha Collins Talks About Castiel's Return This Season

  • Salute To Supernatural Burbank: The Misha Collins Panel

    Misha was in good form at this panel.  Fans were dishing out the usual crazy questions, but he managed to come up with some good answers and for the most part avoid the awkward fan moments that have been plaguing his panels of late.  

    Before I get started, I sadly didn't many good photos of Misha.  He wouldn't stop moving.  There are a couple here though so as usual, credit the Winchester Family Business before sharing.  

    Misha came out on to the stage after his introduction, waved at everyone, and then tooks a few minutes to awkwardly look at the crowd.  He went to say something constantly, stopped himself, and then kept crowd watching.  He went on for a couple minutes doing that then gave up.  
  • "Two Minutes To Midnight" - Misha's Side

    Two Minutes to Midnight - Misha's Side
    Tonight's episode was unbelievable - full of incredible acting, great writing and some key plot advancements. And, if you're a Minion (as in Misha's) you were treated to some special commentary throughout the episode by none other than our resident former angel, Misha Collins. While tonight's episode was heavy and dramatic, Misha's commentary never failed to make me smile, despite the intense drama playing out on the television. (What is up with TV this week - all of "my shows" have left me upset, at least with Supernatural,I expect it! Curse May sweeps for the painful-but-oh-so-good drama [except for you, Glee - you're supposed to make me gleeful, dammit - it's in your name!]). So, before I dive head first into a deep analysis of a heady episode that serves as the penultimate to an episode whose trailer alone makes my stomach turn flips, I thought I'd share some of the smile-invoking words "twitted" (as he calls it) by Misha throughout Two Minutes to Midnight.
    Misha started by announcing the following about 3 hours before the show aired:
    "The folks @ the CW TV network in the USA (i think CW stands for "Clever Wizards") have asked me to twit during the airing of a reality show. The show is called "Supernatural" & I believe it's about a family on a safari."
