Throwback Thursday: Jensen Ackles on “Days of Our Lives”

Oh Jensen, even before you were a Winchester, you knew how to brood perfectly.

If you need to see it to believe it, here is the proof that before he was Dean Winchester, Jensen Ackles was Eric Brady on the long-running soap opera Days of Our Lives. Oh yes, my Supernatural fans, I bet you didn’t know you needed to see this until now.

You’re welcome.

Yes, baby Jensen began a stint on D.O.O.L. back in 1998, and that’s when I first fell in lust love with him. Don’t let the soap opera stint confuse you, though; the boy still had some serious acting chops. Baby J was nominated for three consecutive Emmy’s between 1998 and 2000, which incidentally was the only three years he was on the daytime drama.

Nowadays, Jensen’s all grown up and ganking demons, but let us never forget that’s late 90s hair. Or the awfulness of this shirt.

Pretty sure Dean Winchester would punch Eric Brady in the jaw. Just sayin.

The past fifteen years have done nothing but improve Mr. Hot-pants-Ackles, and can we just take a moment to thank Chuck for that?

I’m gonna go take a moment to go drool over the season 9 SPN promo pics.

I suggest you do the same.

P.S. Has anyone ever noticed J2 had similar haircuts back in the 90s?
