  1. Jared Padalecki is no stranger to the weird, spooky world that lays within Room 401. The 25-year-old has had his share of chilling onscreen encounters.

    After getting his big break on the CW series Gilmore Girls, Jared starred alongside Elisha Cuthbert and Paris Hilton in the 2005 horror movie, House of Wax, in which a group of friends find themselves stranded in a ghost town that houses a freakish wax museum. That same year, he also appeared in Cry Wolf, a murder mystery that revolved around college kids who spread Internet rumors about a campus serial killer until they all started disappearing, one by one.

    But Jared is probably best known as Sam Winchester on the CW's Supernatural, where each week he must confront paranormal activity and fight ghosts and demons during his quest to find his father. Yes, it has certainly been a long, strange road that has led Jared to Room 401.

    In real life, Jared readily admits to being fascinated by mythology and the very real possibility of the existence of supernatural powers. To prepare for his role in Supernatural, he watched TV shows like The X-Files and The Twilight Show and movies such as The Shining and The Ring. Creepy stuff, for sure.

    Jared is also superstitious: Whenever he drives through a yellow light or gets on a plane, he kisses his finger and touches the ceiling. So far, that little good luck trick has worked, as Jared is one of the fastest-rising young actors in Hollywood. Let's just hope that luck remains on his side in Room 401.
