Supernatural's Jared Padalecki

Jared Padalecki stars as Sam Winchester, the sweet, reluctant hero who joins forces with his older brother, Dean (Jensen Ackles), to search for the demon that destroyed their family, on the thriller "Supernatural."

Padalecki is perhaps best known for his role as Rory's (Alexis Bledel) boyfriend Dean on "Gilmore Girls." On the big screen, Padalecki was recently seen in the thriller "Cry Wolf," as a precocious boarding school student drawn into an elaborate hoax involving a serial killer, and in the Warner Bros. feature film "House of Wax," opposite Chad Michael Murray and Paris Hilton. He also starred with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen in "New York Minute," the Olsen twins' first studio feature film. In "Flight of the Phoenix," Padalecki starred opposite Dennis Quaid and Giovanni Ribisi as a passenger on a cargo plane that goes down in a sandstorm in the Sahara with less than a dozen men on board.

Additionally, Padalecki appeared in the hit film "Cheaper by the Dozen," in a role for which director Shawn Levy specifically requested him. Padalecki can also be seen starring opposite Kathy Baker and Hallie Kate Eisenberg in the independent baseball movie "A Little Inside."

Padalecki resides in Los Angeles with his two dogs.
