Jared Padalecki: Conan The Barbarian Competitor -- EXCLUSIVE

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?

2 hours of Jared in nothing but a loincloth, I would pay $25.00 for a ticket to that movie.

generally a huge fan of Jared, but Jason Momoa is seriously BANGIN! plus an amazing actor.

Jared All the way!!

The three options are pure crap. I want a REAL ACTOR to play the cimmerian, not underwear models… oh my god, this production is going worse and worse each day…

Jared would be the only reason to watch it . He is great

Isn’t that photo of Jared a manip?
Anyway NO Jared!! Geez you can do better then a movie like that! O_o You’re more then a pretty face with a hot bod! Gosh I love them man, but his movie roles… ugh XD

God knows I love Jared, and I like it a lot in movies he did and in Supernatural, but I think he prefers to prepare his marriage to Genevieve as a film but if Jared is in it then j ‘would go see if this is not a film that fascinate me.

Jared I hope you do realize that you used a fake manip (Photoshopped) pictured for Jared Padalecki there! LOL! Jared never did a photoshoot like that *giggles* As for who to play Conan, I either hope Jared Padalecki or Kellan Lutz :)

I wanna see Jared without shirt :D:D Of course JARED even if this remake will be stupid as hell…

Jared Padalecki, sure!

Wow . . .bad career move. Next to Chace Crawford in a footloose remake . . . BAD.

Jared padalecki. I don’t think he is that pretty, but dam, the man can act! I like him, i like his acting, he can give us a memorable Conan.

kellan lutz for sure.he has the abs and the looks

Jared is the best looking out of all three

yes! jared for sure!

I love Jared as much as the next fan girly but I am sorry for this role the guy that plays Conan needs to look more like Dwayne Johnson……….

I am contractually obligated to point out that there are plenty of reasons to make a new Conan film, seeing as the character was created 50 years before the film, and was not well represented by Arnold. Complaining about a remake of Conan the Barbarian is as silly as complaining about Jackson’s Lord of the Rings films for “remaking Ralph Bakshi’s cult classic.”

Out of the three choices, Paladecki is the one which irks me the least. Momoa doesn’t seem to have the range, and Lutz is just a horrible choice. Sadly, this is just one in a long line of disasters this film has undergone from seemingly the start, and frankly, I’d prefer if Jared kept clear, and concentrated on something worthwhile.

@Taranaich: Curious as to who you would choose then? Out of interest….

I’d rather they didn’t remake it in the first place, the original was terrible so I doubt a remake would be much better. If I had to pick though I would go for Jared

also that pic of him isn’t real its a manip of his head on anothers body!

I am completely obsessed with Jared, and I think always will be, and even though he obviously has a sexy as hell body, I don’t think he’s Barbarian material. He has a really soft, innocent look about him too. I think Kellan would be more for the role.
