‘Walker, Texas Ranger’ getting a reboot; Supernatural’s Jared Padalecki to star

First he was Dean on Gilmore Girls, then he was Sam on Supernatural. Now, Jared Padalecki will take on the iconic role of Cordell Walker on a new Walker, Texas Ranger reboot.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the new series, simply called Walker, is being produced by CBS TV Studios, but doesn’t have a network attached to the project yet. The original Walker, Texas Ranger ran from 1993 – 2001 and starred Chuck Norris as Cordell Walker.

Currently, Padalecki is filming the 15th and final ( 🙁 ) season of Supernatural. He lives in Texas and has the hair for it, so sounds like a pretty decent casting choice.
