Surely, Jared Padalecki was up for the challenge!
What we do know is that Cordell was up for the challenge of getting back into Duke's skin again, as much as he hated who he became when he was undercover.
I'll tell you what; I am only human. Between Matt Barr glittering his way into Walker Season 1 Episode 3 and Padalecki's multiple shirtless scenes with "Duke," well, I appreciate what they're doing here.
Do you know what was missing on Supernatural? Well, not much. But shirtless scenes were few and far between. So it wasn't easy to discern if the brothers had been taken care of themselves.
Hint: They were, and so was Duke as the bronco rider trying to bust the Rodeo Kings in Operation Watch the Throne.
