Jared Padalecki (a.k.a. Dean!) Joins Gilmore Girls Revival: Report
The four-episode miniseries doesn't have a premiere date yet
Saving the best for last? (Yes, haters, we ship Rory and Dean still.)
Rory (Alexis Bledel)’s first boyfriend – and first time – is the final ex-boyfriend to join Netflix’s Gilmore Girls revival.
Padalecki, who starred in Gilmore Girls since the pilot, has had a successful career on the CW’s Supernatural for 11 seasons.
Though we’re #TeamDean besides that awkward time he cheated on his wife with Rory, Padalecki, 33, told PEOPLE that he rooted for his romantic rival in real life.
“Honest to god, I was always Team Jess. I don’t know if it’s because I love Milo so much,” he said at June’s ATX Television Festival in Austin, Texas. “And even as young 19-, 20-year-old actor, Milo, who had grown up in Venice, he took me under his wing, took me to different restaurants and kind of made me feel welcome. So I didn’t blame Rory for her Jess relationship he’s a handsome dude. He’s brooding and built and handsome.”
Netflix has yet to announce a premiere date for the still untitled four-part miniseries.
