Jared Padalecki: Conan The Barbarian Competitor -- EXCLUSIVE

Supernatural star Jared Padalecki is the third actor in the running to star in the remake of Conan The Barbarian, sources tell

It was reported earlier this week that Kellan Lutz (Twilight) and Jason Momoa (Stargate: Atlantis, Baywatch) are the two others in competition for the role.

Conan is set to start production on March 15 in Bulgaria but as previously reported that Padalecki‘s schedule might be causing a little bit of trouble — he plans on tying the knot with fiancee Genevieve Cortese this spring in Sun Valley, Idaho.

Directing Conan is Marcus Nispel, who worked with Jared on the 2009 horror flick Friday the 13th.

WHO DO YOU THINK is right for the Conan role — Kellan, Jason or Jared?

    Have you guys confirmed that the other possible actors Urban, Jay Tavare, Travis Van Winkle and Derek Mears are no longer in consideration as the “thid” actor?

    Jared, definitely. And could people PLEASE get it in their heads that the photo of Jared here is not real? It’s his face plastered on some random dude’s body. Jared’s body is much more attractive than that, FYI.

    Jared is supposed to get married in February so that is not a conflict. His conflict would be with filming Supernatural til late March.

    I love Jared so much, but no. Jason would be SO much better for that role.

    Smarter than you Says:

    Do you people think that at some point some smart person amongst the morons on your staff will point out that THAT IS NOT JARED PADALECKI IN THAT PICTURE? It’s a photo manipulation. Lord, does anyone do any work besides the fans?

    winnie Says:

    This photo of Jared is a MANIP!!. There are so many photo’s out there of Jared that show off his real body aka tv guide shoot. Do you need us fans to link you to the real image?

    I just wanted to say Arnold was soooo hot. He’s the best looking pro body builder there ever was.

    I think they should leave Conan the Barbarian alone, it’s a cult classic, it doesn’t need a remake.

    huuuummm, jared, the barbarian….. very interesting!

    Vickie Says:

    Jared would be very good on the eyes. Why remake such a classic movie. Can anyone really fill the original Conan’s shoes.

    Ash Says:

    That manip doesn’t show Jared’s broad shoulders and gigantic arms!

    I don’t think a movie can do anything but flunk (it’s not the 80ies anymore) so I hope Jared gets plenty of cash for doing this if he does. At least don’t make this flick into the drool fest for steroid worshippers like the other one was. A grunting, pumped up idiot is nowhere sexy in today culture.

    If Jared does this, at least let him act. He’ll surprise with what he can do other than look like a genetic masterpiece. Born Under a bad sign anyone?
