Well, he cares a little. Specifically, Ackles cares about 1/11th of the 22 episode anime adaptation of Supernatural, because he’s only voicing Dean in the final two episodes, with someone else filling in for him for the first 20. Jared Padalecki, who has nothing better to do, is voicing Sam the entire time. I find this very strange: first of all, because Ackles doesn’t seem to have a problem with voice acting, as he was Jason Todd in DC’s Under the Red Hood, and second, if he was only willing to do two episodes, why bother at all? Surely it’d be less grating for the fans to just have his stand-in (voice-in?) do the entire show instead of getting swapped out at the last minute. Of course, I don’t even know what the fuck is supposed to be happening in the new U.S. trailer (above), so I’m probably not the best person to ask. (Via Anime News Network)

Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others.
