Rob and Rich, God â€˜n Gabe, the Kings of Con. Regardless of how you refer to them, Rob Benedict and Richard Speight Jr. are not only amazing actors, but good friends. Known to most for their roles as Chuck Shurley aka God and the archangel Gabriel (respectively) on Supernatural, they dropped into SDCC for more than just the sun (and to buy me an iced coffee).
Bandit: Alright, so I know you guys are here for Thrilling Adventure Hour. So, I know how you got involved in Thrilling Adventure Hour, Tim Omundson said he brought you in.
Rich: Thatâ€™s right, thatâ€™s right. But it was actually at a Comic Con two years ago, three years ago. Rob and I were training down and I got a call from Tim saying Iâ€™m supposed to do this thing but now I canâ€™t come down there, weâ€™ve coordinated with these guys, so, fill in for me. I said sure, having no idea what Thrilling Adventure Hour was and then realizing that it was live-stage reading and I was in over my head with some very funny people. But after that I was hooked and fell in love with the guys in the show and you know after that saying thank you, thank you, please take me back! So I was Robâ€™s Omundson.
Rob: Yeah, exactly. I was begging you guys to get me in.
Rich: Yeah, thatâ€™s right. You were [â€¦] And with good reason [â€¦] Incredibly funny guys and girls doing super-heightened, really intelligent funny stuff. And they just finished their 10 year residency [â€¦]
