Supernatural's Ackles and Padalecki: Is Sam Still Ready to Die?

Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki

It's hard out there for a Sam fan.

Since getting possessed by Ezekiel, Sam (Jared Padalecki) has repeatedly been pushed out of the action on Supernatural this season to allow the angel to save the day (with the delightful exception of Sam's scenes with Crowley last week). And though with each use of his powers, Zeke — and thus, Sam — weakens a little more, Padalecki says Sam will get back in the fray soon.

"We do start to see that Zeke is healing Sam," Padalecki tells TVGuide.com. "We do see Sam start to not require so much help from Zeke and his brother. So we will gradually see more bits of Sam more often than Zeke in the upcoming episodes, which doesn't mean we won't see Zeke as well."

Alec Baldwin Says His MSNBC Show Might Never Return

Alec Baldwin

After MSNBC suspended Alec Baldwin's talk show Up Late for two weeks in the wake of the actor's apparent use of an anti-gay slur, the actor has now said the talk show might never return.

"Whether the show comes back at all is at issue right now," Baldwin wrote onThe Huffington Post"The show is no doubt a work in progress and one that I believe featured some interesting guests and disseminated a good deal of interesting information. But if the show dies, its fate ends up being no different than the vast majority of start-up TV programming, and so be it."

Surprising celebrity family ties

Baldwin also took the opportunity to address the accusations that he recently directed a homophobic epithet at a photographer. "What word is said right after the other choice word I use is unclear. But I can assure you, with complete confidence, that a direct homophobic slur (or indirect one for that matter) is not spoken ... My friends who happen to be gay are baffled by this. They see me as one who has recently fought for marriage equality and has been a supporter of gay rights for many years. Now, the charge of being a 'homophobic bigot,' to quote one crusader in the gay community, is affixed."
