With The CW's Jared Padalecki-starring Walker back in production and returning with all-new episodes in a little less than two weeks (and recently renewed for a second season) with the stormy "Fine is a Four Letter Word" (more on that in a minute), we thought we'd check to see how things are going. Apparently, it's going gray- or at least, Padalecki is. Now before you jump on us, we're not the ones bringing it up- Padalecki did by posting an image of him getting some gray dyed before resuming filming, with the caption, "friendly words of advice: don't get old." It sounds like the moment was a bit of a "back-down-to-reality" moment for the actor, but for whatever our opinion is worth? It works because it gives a sense of mature-yet-dangerous, that you can still kick ass but you'll do it with a well-thought-out plan. Hell, we embrace our gray- but Padalecki doesn't need to take our word for it. Not when he has someone who's learned to master "The Art of the Gray" offering support.
Here's a look at Padalecki's original post:

As the SPN family has known for years, just because they're on different shows doesn't mean the cast still isn't watching out for each other. Padalecki's Supernatural dad Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Walking Dead) is a perfect example, sliding into the comments section of Padalecki's post to offer some sage advice: learn to stop worrying and love the silver. Because in the end, the silver wins:
