Jensen Ackles directs 'Supernatural' episode 604This week's episode of 'Supernatural' marks a very special occasion for one of its stars, Jensen Ackles, the man behind badass demon hunter (and now, surprisingly adept family man) Dean Winchester.

After five years lighting up the screen alongside his co-star Jared Padalecki, episode 604 -- titled 'Weekend at Bobby's' -- will see Ackles step behind the camera for his directorial debut. (Check out our special look behind the scenes of the episode here.)

Ackles' turn behind the camera got us thinking about some of our other favorite TV stars who have recently hopped into the director's chair, so we've compiled a list of six awesome actors (aside from Ackles) who have taken the helm on their own shows in the past few years -- take a peek at our picks after the jump.

'Chuck' - 'Chuck Versus the Role Models' Recap

by Brad Trechak, posted May 4th 2010 10:21AM

Chuck(S03E15) The first major thought that occurred to me after watching tonight's episode was that if Fred Willard and Swoosie Kurtz got a spin-off series about their characters, the Turners, I would watch it. The conversation between them was hilarious. For all we know, this could very well have been a back door pilot for them. They're the 'Gary Seven' of 'Chuck.'

Obviously, agents are tempted to cross the line time to time (that's what happened with Shaw not too long ago). It's interesting how age leads to more self-justification in the matter. Doesn't the CIA or NSA have a decent pension plan?

Morgan and a Tiger on 'Chuck' (VIDEO)

Morgan and a Tiger on 'Chuck'How badly would you like to be a spy? Would you be willing to face down a deadly tiger, if doing that meant you could become a super-cool secret agent? A vicious tiger comes into play on 'Chuck' (Mon., 8PM ET on NBC).

Chuck (Zachary Levi) refuses to let Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) kill the animal. "I am not letting you shoot a tiger. They are endangered and majestic!" he says to her. So it falls to spy-in-training Morgan (Joshua Gomez) to take care of the beast.

'Chuck' Fans Plan Buy More-Themed Flash Mobs

by Sharon Knolle, posted Apr 30th 2010 12:00PM
"'Chuck' fans are the most loyal, dedicated, imaginative and passionate fans any show could ever hope for," says series co-creator Josh Schwartz.

It turns out he wasn't kidding.

To show their support for the NBC show, which is currently "on the bubble," fans will stage flash mobs in four cities this Monday, notes The Hollywood Reporter.

If you live in Chicago, Seattle, San Diego and Philadelphia, expect to see hordes of people dressed like Buy More employees, either in a green polo shirt and khakis or short-sleeved white dress shirt, tie and black pants.

'Chuck' - 'Chuck Versus the Honeymooners' Recap

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 26th 2010 9:30PM
(S03E14) Let's review the steps that brought us to this moment: 'Chuck' originally only had a 13 episode order for this season so the last episode wrapped things up pretty well and left the story on a happy note. Then, NBC ordered additional episodes (see details in our Chris Fedak interview), so in effect we're seeing "Season 3.2". Also, there's a good chance that 'Chuck' will be renewed next year.

Zachary Levi, George Lopez Compare Custom Golf Carts (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Apr 9th 2010 6:00AM
Zachary Levi on 'Lopez Tonight'Everything's a competition, right? Zachary Levi first revealed his customized studio golf cart on 'The Bonnie Hunt Show.' But when Levi visited 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 11PM ET on TBS), he and host George Lopez had to compare the pimped out wheels each drives around the studio lot.

Lopez says Levi's cart "screams redneck," while Levi admits the comedian's cart is legendary. "It's famous, bro. Literally I drive around, they go have you seen George's golf cart?" Now we've all seen it, and Lopez says he can get Levi one, if he has cart envy. Which is your fave?

Will 'Chuck's' Last Six Eps Be As Good As the First Thirteen?

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 6th 2010 5:31PM
Zachary Levi in 'Chuck' - 'Chuck Vs. The American Hero'Most 'Chuck' fans know that last night's episode, 'Chuck Versus The Other Guy,' was originally designed to be the third season finale. That was, of course, before NBC surprised Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak with an order for six more episodes, bringing the total to 19.

Don't get me wrong; 'Chuck Versus The Other Guy' was one of my favorite episodes this season. So many stories advanced and got tied together, it made for a very satisfying hour.

But that's because the stories were supposed to be wrapped up. For all Fedak and Schwartz knew, this was going to be the last episode they ever did. So, did things wrap up a little too neatly last night, leaving the last six episodes as some sort of long, energy-free epilogue? I'm not sure.

'Chuck' - 'Chuck Versus The Other Guy' Recap

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 5th 2010 11:50PM
Chuck(S03E13) This would have been an excellent season finale. In fact, had NBC stuck by their original episode order quantity for 'Chuck,' this would be the season finale. But they didn't so it isn't. We did see the storylines for this season thus far wrap up nicely with the added bonus of seeing the next logical step of the one that has been around since the first season.

The episode was particularly enjoyable. There was comedy, drama, romance and a little bit of action (although more action happened off-screen, but there was enough emotional action to more than make up for it).

Four Reasons Why 'Chuck' is an All-Time Favorite

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 5th 2010 11:06AM
ChuckOne thing that TV fans love to do is create their list for "My Favorite TV Shows of All-Time." Every few years I calculate mine, and for several years, the list didn't change that much.

Oh, maybe a couple of shows switched places or maybe a show dropped from number five to number eight, but for the most part the list stayed the same. That all changed a couple of years ago when I had to add both 'Mad Men' and '30 Rock' to the list. I still haven't figured out which two shows in the top ten I'll have to take off.

I'll also have to add a third show to that list, and that would be NBC's 'Chuck' (tonight at 8 on NBC). I don't know if it wedges its way into the top ten, but it's definitely top twenty. Here's why.

'Chuck' vs. WonderCon! Relationship and Finale Scoop from the Cast & Crew

by Jo Garfein, posted Apr 5th 2010 10:30AM
Yesterday at WonderCon, the cast and crew of 'Chuck' gathered in San Francisco to present tonight's new episode ('Chuck vs. The Other Guy'), address fan feedback and discuss the season finale.

According to incredibly affable 'Chuck' star Zachary Levi, they wrapped filming on season 3 two weeks ago. However, he is not a fan of spoilers and heard that there was allegedly a mole on the set of the show. "We didn't even get the last four or five pages of the last script. That's the first time that ever happened. It always boggles my mind that people would want to spoil that. It takes away from the whole experience of any show, especially a show that's so rooted in certain mythologies."
