It's like a multi-fandom s'plosion!

For those who were living underneath a rock yesterday, Misha Collins appeared on The Soup, the half-hour comedy-satire show on E! that mocks current pop culture happenings, hosted by Joel McHale (Community). Misha, followed by Joel himself and several other sources, confirmed his appearance before it aired last night. He was joined by other guest-appearances of Lucy Lawless and Liam McIntyre (both from Spartacus: Blood and Sand) and, well, hilarity ensued. Obviously. Including epic moments like the one above, which there should be no context needed considering Misha and Liam are all chummy and Lucy has no objections to that, and Joel looks vaguely perplexed and also jealous, considering there seems to be some mancrushing shortly thereafter:

Just make out already!

I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised seeing him on this -- and ultimately ended up flailing like the fangirl that I am -- because, besides Stonehenge Apocalypse, isn't this the first thing we've seen him in since he has been on Supernatural? It makes me very proud to see him rising up in the world and being recognized elsewhere on such shows like this, but also sad at the same time. Because the show that made him well-known practically kicked him out, disowned by the evil stepmother who deemed him too "boring" and "redundant", so now he's searching for a new home and for someone else to take him in, but it's hard in the business. I could go on forever on why this depresses and angers me, so this is why seeing him on The Soup makes me hopeful.

We already know he's going to be guest-starring on Ringer, now I want him to guest-star on Community if nothing else to see more interaction between him and Joel. Also, just to appear on many, many other shows and further his career in the best way possible. ♥

Quick thoughts on Misha's appearance:
** He's incredibly attractive, like even more than usual, and I approve

** Misha and Joel McHale interacting with each other, flirting, being adorable and hilarious together. Same with Misha and Liam being all over each other. Hell, Misha just intensifies all the sexual energy in the room, doesn't he? Everyone wants a piece of him, lol

** Misha's angry!face is a huge turn on. I can't explain it.

** It always has to involve his penis in some fashion, doesn't it? lol

** Someone else pointed out that The Soup promoted Supernatural more times in thirty minutes than the CW network has in seven years. Sad, but painfully very true.

In case you've missed it, you can view a clip right here or you can get the full thing here.

To sum everything up, I honestly hope Misha gets more exposure like this, because he truly deserves the recognition for being a multi-talented, versatile actor and an incredible human being. I am crossing my fingers for more surprise appearances in the near future.

Thank you for the link. I haven't seen it yet because I just came home from work but I have been bouncing around with excitement already all day.

You're welcome! Believe me, after hearing about him making an appearance I was absolutely in glee and to be honest, I think I was even more excited for his brief guest appearance on The Soup than I have been for SPN in nearly over two years.

Yes, it was pre-recorded. I'm assuming it was earlier that day or the day before. And yeah, the little skits are scripted. He didn't really punch Joel, lol. ;p

This actually makes me want Misha to go on The Daily Show or The Colbert Report, because while those are scripted the interviews aren't and if Misha came onto their show for an interview you never know what could happen. He could promote Random Acts while bringing the hilarity to the table. Just a thought I keep wishing would come true, and now that he's been on The Soup I will continue holding out for this..... *crossing fingers*

And no, I'm not going to watch 7.17. As much as I love Misha/Castiel I am not watching simply that mess of a show again just to see them destroy his character further.

I will just be waiting until it's over to hear whether or not it was actually watchable.

In conclusion: Misha should be everywhere. All the time. More roles for him because he's not even a bad actor.
Renée: MISHA COLLINS BITCHES!rogueslayer452 on January 19th, 2012 11:23 pm (UTC)
Everywhere, all the time. He and Mark Sheppard should have a battle on who can be in everything everywhere all at once. ;D

I hope that the full thing will be uploaded somewhere where I can watch. It sounds and looks too good to be missed. Oh, Misha.

He should go on SNL. Also, he likes to wear the same clothes wherever he is. Hee, recognise the T-shirt as the one he wore to SDCC. :)

Him on SNL would be fabulous! I also still hold the opinion that he should appear on The Daily Show and/or The Colbert Report because, well, can you imagine? There would be skits involved or interviews (or both) and it would just be simply amazing. It would be right up his alley of comedy, too. ;D He just needs to be everywhere.

lol, I love how he recycles all his clothes. He doesn't buy new ones, he just continues to wear the same cycle of them until they wear themselves out, lol.
