Salute to Supernatural - Misha Collins

Aside from Jared and Jensen, Misha Collins has got to be one of the most popular and highly anticipated guest at the Supernatural convention. Misha's "minions" (fans) exhibit a devotion displayed in the many "Castiels" at the convention. Some fans even wore feathered angel wings, sock puppet monkey hats or wore black-veined "Leviathan" makeup painted across the face. When Misha gave a brief appearance at Matt Cohen and Richard Spreight Jr.'s panel cheers erupted from the audience. The crowd grew restless after a small delay and Creation ran out of Castiel-themed music videos to show. Silly Creation. They could have asked any of his minions to stream Youtube videos from their iPhones.

When the speaker announced "GOD HAS ENTERED THE BUILDING" the audience screamed and cheered.

Q&A Paraphrased

Fan: Does your refrigerator work? Because we had to use the bathtub to keep things chilled.

MISHA: I don't understand. It seems like you're using your hotel's appliances for the wrong reasons. "Gee, I'd like to take a nap, but I can't fit in the microwave."

Fan: How has your life been adversely affected by Moose (Jared Padalecki)?

MISHA: There's been property damage. He's to blame for several hangovers.

Fan: Will Sam ever hug Cas?

MISHA: There's a clause in my contract that Sam has to hug Cas. Jared won't stop hugging me. He texted me last night to come and wrestle with him in his hotel room. He later texted me "C'mon. Don't be gay."

Fan: It seems when you played the Leviathan you were the most like your usual self.

MISHA: I'm glad that came across. When I decided to play the most evil maniacal being imaginable it came across as just me.

Fan: What was it like filming the Leviathan scene?

MISHA: Horrible. I came down with food poisoning while filming, which I rarely do, but I was so sick. I spent most of the time between takes on the couch or sitting on the toilet. I was looking at the pail (to vomit in) several times during the scene. It didn't help that I had black goo dripping into my mouth. I don't know about you but I don't like black goo oozing from my head either. They ended up shooting some of my coverage with my double.

Fan: How'd you come up with the name Anaximander (the middle name of Misha's son, West).

MISHA: I do what most fathers do when their wife is expecting their first child. I read Greek philosophers. Each time I mentioned the name we'd laugh. I call him "Waxy."

Fan: Would you heir your minions to West?

MISHA: That's kind of dark ages, feudal system passing my minions on to him. I'd have to be dead to do that. I don't like that idea anymore.

Fan: What's the weirdest gift you've received?

MISHA: A needlepoint of my face. It's terrifying. Maybe I can decorate my wall with pictures of my face all over it. I'd stare lovingly back at me.

Fan: What was it like working in the White House?

MISHA: I'd take some of the job applications home with me and laugh at them.

Fan: What product would you endorse?

(Misha's microphone squeaks shrilly each time he tries to speak)

MISHA: I get the message. I'd endorse Creation Entertainment.

Fan: What was it like playing the role in "Karla"?

MISHA: I had nightmares about my character. I was worried I wouldn't get out of that head space. There's a restraining order on the director. I came to the set and heard he shot some people.

Fan: If you were any animal what would you be?

MISHA: A naked molerat, for their translucent skin. You don't get that in other animals.

Fan: What super power would you like to have?

MISHA: The ability to walk in a straight line. One leg is longer than the other and it'd be useful not to veer off on to one side of the sidewalk.

Fan: Was Cas happy when he blew out the windows in "Lazarus Rising"?

MISHA: Castiel didn't know what he was doing then. He needed to learn to control his bodily functions and not fart.

Fan: What is your dream?

MISHA: I'd like to drop a bus into a live volcano, which is difficult because there are not many live volcanoes. I also found out the lava wouldn't be hot enough to melt the bus.

Fan: Did you enjoy playing evil!Cas or future!Cas?

MISHA: Future Cas because of the orgies. Lots of rehearsal went into that. I was very sore.

Fan: Who'd you marry, shag and kill?

MISHA: Marry Matt because he's good at cleaning. Shag Chad because of the boots. Push Richard off a cliff but with a parachute. We need him for the karaoke. I'm not doing that.

Misha thinks the "Castianity" T-shirt is creepy


  1. Man, that first ridiculous! I was so glad she was finally boo'd off! Learn from that people!

  2. I think the lady trying to have Misha get her a government job and wondering if putting "wave of celestial intent" on her resume was a good idea was even worse. These nutjobs should just "Suck it."

  3. What Convention was this from?
