It’s a time-honored tradition for TV actors to let themselves go on their season hiatuses, taking a break from intense workouts, beauty regimens and the like. The supremely handsome Jensen Ackles, who plays Dean Winchester on “Supernatural,” obviously took a break from his razor, sprouting the Tom Hardy beard above.
Of course, Ackles had another excuse to lighten up on the personal grooming — a newborn daughter! Ackles’ wife, Danneel Harris, gave birth to Justice Jay ‘JJ’ on May 30. The man clearly doesn’t have time for shaving!
So he left it up to the makeup and hair professionals on the set of “Supernatural,” which started shooting Season 9 yesterday. Director Guy Bee captured his transformation from “Dad to Dean” in a genius Vine video that he also tweeted out to followers.
Watch Ackles turn “From Dad to Dean in 6 seconds!” below:
If the cast and assorted crazies of “Supernatural” doing its version of the “Harlem Shake” can’t get you over the hump today, nothing can! You probably didn’t know you needed this video, but oh, yes, YOU DO. Enjoy:
