At San Diego Comic-Con Sunday morning, the Supernatural panel won the Con by having Kansas perform live their hit and season-ending anthem, “Carry On Wayward Son!” I so wish I was there. Rob Benedict and Richard Speight Jr. (Chuck/God and The Trixter/Gabriel & director of a few episodes), the Kings of Con, introduced the panel: EP’s Robert Singer and Andrew Dabb, the boys, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padelecki, and to top it off, Misha Collins popped by.

Last week on Supernatural, Dean (Jensen Ackles) was hit with a whammy of a witch spell that made him slowly lose his memories. Although nice to see Dean a bit happy for once, we and Sam (Jared Padalecki) were quite worried as soon he would forget how to breathe. Rowena (Ruth Connell) came to the rescue, as the culprits were a family of witches that needed to be put down to save Dean, and just because.
Kings of Con takes over the south today in episode 8’s “Plano, TX.” Never a dull moment with Rob and Rich (Rob Benedict and Richard Speight Jr), our beloved “C-list” actors who tour the cons with humor, aplomb, alcohol, drugs, etc. The guests are the icing as usual.
The boys just cannot help getting into hot water with their shenanigans! On today’s Kings of Con 1.7, Rob Benedict & Richard Speight, Jr., stars of their own show on Comic-Con HQ, and stars of cons in their own heads, find themselves with a very “hard” problem in Littleton, Colorado.
Kings of Con debuted Tuesday on the new Comic-Con HQ channel, and boy, the laughs are delivered! This delicious little satirical nugget follows Rob Benedict and Richard Speight Jr. as caricatures of themselves. Their actor friends join the fun and play over the top as well.
I got a chance to talk to Rob about his new show and a bit of other stuff. Check it out below.
