Everyone found Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles at ACL again

It’s that time of year. It’s “Supernatural” star sighting season.

Actors Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, who play the Winchester brothers on the long-running CW show, are Austin fixtures. Last year at Austin City Limits Music Festival, one of our photographers snagged a shot of Padalecki, and fans posted selfies with both actors on social media. We haven’t caught up with either of them ourselves this weekend, but plenty of other folks have, according to Twitter and Instagram.

Check out the “Supernatural” photo-ops below.

 

 

And don’t forget: At ACL Fest 2016, our first star sighting was shaken, not stirred.

ACL Fest 2016: Austin, we have our first fest celeb sighting

It’s less than five hours into this year’s Austin City Limits Festival, but we’ve already spotted our first international celebrity (besides the musicians themselves, of course).

This isn’t the first time the former 007 agent has been spotted in Austin. As he takes breaks from filming his new show for AMC, he’ll periodically pop up at Guero’s or the Bullock Texas State History Museum.

Brosnan has been filming a series for AMC in Central Texas this month. “The Son” is a “multi-generational epic tale of the story of America’s birth as a superpower through the bloody rise and fall of one Texas family,” according to Deadline. The series is based on local author Philipp Meyer’s 2013 novel of the same name and will air in 2017.

The day is young…maybe we’ll spot some more famous folks as the weekend goes on.
