hey ethan, you need to shut up. you sound like a moron to be perfectly honest. and yes, i'm sure that you have never heard of james, hence the reason for this contest. you just proved that james is, in fact, under-appreciated compared to jared but since supernatural is so big he would win. and you totally just degraded my opinion on jared even more, so thank you. oh and loser is spelled with only one o. (:
james roday and dule hill are two of my favorite actors! i love every episode of psych and they just seem to make the characters more likable. james roday definitely deserves more recognition (i would say Dule Hill too but he isnt on the poll) ...plus james roday is SEXXXY. whaaaaaaaaat? ;-) ....screw Jared. everything i've seen him in turned out to be a total waste of time. sure he might be good looking, but its nothing compared to james roday's "great hair line and irresistible charm" LOL c'mon guys. he is a really great actor and does more than just act and look good. he should be winning this poll and is WAY under-appreciated. he deserves way more!
Jared's awesome. Congrats Jared!!!!
suck shit loosers! JARED IS THE BEST! he thrashes who ever that other no name 2bit comedian or who ever he is, ive never heard of that other loose WOOOO JARED!!!!
SEE THIS PROVES IT: James Roday is the *Most under-appreciated Writer, Director, and Actor. Roday, and Psych needs much more recognition! See for yourself NEW episode of Psych on-USA Network this wed. 10/9c
i SOOOO agree with Amanda ^ Jared isn't as noticed as Jensen, which is unfair! so he should win this, and just stop trashing him! He can ACTUALLY ACT and look good too ;) i hope Amanda has knocked some sense into people
Amen, Amanda. Well said. Bravo.
I am so glad that Jared Padalecki won this poll, it was a well-deserved win! Even if you've heard of Supernatural (and most people have not b/c the CW barely advertises it) and/or Jared himself, it's entirely incorrect to assume that Jared is thus an appreciated actor. You have to be active in the Supernatural fan community to see just how little attention he gets compared to Jensen Ackles, both critic-wise and fan-wise, and how undeserved this ignorance is. In fact, if you want to see ignorance, go to the main comment section of this poll and see how people are trashing him left and right b/c they're mad it's him in this poll instead of Jensen...that'll show you that half the time he's not just underappreciated, he's UNappreciated.
Is Jensen a terrific actor who deserves much praise? Yes. And it's fine to have your favorite, too, but so many when it comes to SPN act like Jensen is the ONLY one on screen that it's baffling and shameful, especially when you consider that Jared and Jensen are supposed to be CO-STARS, not supporting actor and star, respectively. Yet that's what it's like all too often, and the worst thing is there is no basis for it, b/c Jared's work in SPN is amazing, versatile and evolving and consistently brilliant like I've never seen with any other actor; those lines and scenes may not be written BY him but he takes them and MAKES them his, which is just as impressive in my book...as someone here said, his character can run the gamut of emotions (and therefore have you doing the same) all in one episode. His work in movies has also been wonderful, from suspenseful action in Friday the 13th to tearjerking and heartwarming in Christmas Cottage. But most people still don't know him or acknowledge the hard work he does, the work that he puts his heart and soul into every time.
That said, I don't watch Psych or follow James Roday, but know a few SPN fans who do and love the show and the actor, so I have nothing and will say nothing against him. If he is indeed underappreciated I hope that changes for him in the future b/c no good actor deserves to be underappreciated and no RESPECTFUL fan - the bashing and put-downs I've seen here against either actor are uncalled for and unappealing, I must say - deserves to have people look at them like they're stupid or tasteless when they talk about an actor/show they love, or, in the case of Jared fans so many times, be bashed themselves for their love of the less popular guy even while they respect the more popular guy and his non-hostile fans!
So as one of these fans who's had that happen enough times to actually be driven to stop going to certain SPN sites and also stop reading comments on SPN-related internet things b/c of this, I am so happy and relieved to see Jared finally get a win. Get some of the recognition that he deserves and I hope it's a trend that continues. I can personally attest from having met him four times now that Jared is a beautiful individual, not just outside but inside as well, who is incredibly talented and passionate about his work and the projects and characters he helps bring to life, but sadly doesn't get NEARLY enough praise and appreciation for. Here's crossing my fingers that this is a step away from that disheartening trend and in the right direction instead; here's hoping the same for all the nominees, really. But Jared I definitely know for sure, deserves any and all love and appreciation he gets...and then some! :-D
Jared should totally win this he's so talented and so very under-appreciated! Stop by Supernatural Underground on Facebook, hit the like button and join the conversation!! we celebrate Jared, Jensen and Misha everyday!
Don't be Nick Cage's accent in Con Air. Roday, of course!

Jared Padalecki is the greatest... most sexiest... wizard I have ever met.
Hey, Froyo11, yeah- he was on Gilmore Girls during his early teenage years, and yes people adore his character on Supernatural, but if you look into the future for Jared I see him going super far. He's done both comedy verse and horror verse as well as teen verse characters- and James has done what? Slapstick comedy. Yes, he's great at what he does, I will admit, James makes me laugh a whole hell'uva lot, but I don't see him doing anything other than comedy. I see Jared doing several genres in the future after Supernatural has run its course. (Also, you might want to get yourself some glasses, cause Jared ain't blonde.)
Jared? Isn't this the guy who played the annoying boyfriend on Gilmore Girls? NO THANK YOU. People are obsessed with him because he's on Supernatural. And tall and blond or whatever.
James is far more underappreciated. And an improv genius, hello?
Wait, if we're voting for the most underappreciated, won't the actor with the lesser votes win?
Oh buddy. I wonder what would have happened if it was "Which entertainer is more under-appreciated? Jared Padalecki or Jenson Ackles?"
Uh oh. lolol
I vote for Jared!!! I have been watching Supernatural since the beginning and I have all 5 seasons so that I can continue to watch Jared. He is a very talented actor! I also have his other movies on DVD.... I loved him as Thomas Kinkade in "The Christmas Cottage" MY VOTE IS DEFINATELY FOR JARED PADALECKI.... don't know the other guy and don't care to.
*I very, very love Jared!! Jared is great and the best actor in the world!!
I love him!
I very, very love Jared! Jares is grate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
No contest Jared is among one of the best actors out there his role as Sam W is acted brilliantly by him and no other could do it justice, would like to see Jensen Ackles name on the vote as well great as Sam's brother Dean. Go Jared!!!
James is fine, I always enjoy Psych, HOWEVER...
Jared is great actor and will have a much longer shelf life. Jared will be acting when he's up in his 50's and 60's James will fall by the wayside , unless he can keep working as someones funny Uncle on a sitcom.IMO.
I VOTE FOR JARED..... MORE PEOPLE NEED TO GO VOTE FOR THE PEOPLE SHOW FROM CW LINE-UP. THAT'S TO ALL YOU SUPERNATURAL FANS.....
I watch both shows, however, I think Jared is much more underated for all the character work he has done with same character for over 5 years. James is funny, but I don't feel his character ever changes or grows. Jared can make you go from screaming to laughing to crying etc in only 60 seconds.
This is a heartbreaking poll for me to vote in, as I love both of these actors' work. They are both geniuses in their own ways, and completely under-rated in the public eye. ARGGGGHHHHH!!!! What a choice!!!
Let's see, broody, vaguely emo, cheesy supernatural guy who's fed lines from the side? Or awesome, funny, witty charming guy who writes his own lines?
Do we reward the ability to look pained or the ability to come up with hilarious quips every week and then deliver them with perfect timing?
No contest in my book!
I agree with Katie! I'm a fan of both Supernatural AND Psych. I think James Roday is a hilarious, outstanding actor that is somewhat under-appreciated, but Jared is definitely MORE under-appreciated than James! I've asked people if they watch Supernatural and they give me this look like "WTF is that?" and say they've never heard of it. I ask the same people if they watch Psych, and I've only ONCE gotten a "Never heard of it." Let's face it: USA shows are much more out-there in terms of people knowing they're there and knowing what they're about. CW shows, not so much. For those of you who are arguing that James Roday is a comic genius and that's why he should win, you're not wrong in that the man is hilarious. But before you use that as your argument, youtube some clips of Jared being Jared ... the man is a 6'4'' jumping bean of hilarity! I had to think about it a while, but Jared deserves the win on this one. Sorry, James. I still love ya.
Okay, all of the people who put James Roday have written that he is a "comedic genius" and yes he is. But so is Jared! Just because he doesn't usually play comedic roles, does not mean he's funny! He's probably the funniest out of Jensen and Misha, and Misha is pretty damn funny! Jared is adorable and can warm your heart in a minute! I have not seen Roday hug a person he just met because he ran into them, or had a conversation with a baby! And I am a HUGE fan of Psych! I have most of the seasons on dvd, I mad a Psych poster that is hanging in my room! Hell, I'm watching it right now! But that doesn't mean that Jared is just some "pretty boy from Texas" he's an amazing actor! He can play a sweet college kid who just lost the love of his life to a blood-junkie Lucifer! So people, if you actually think about this, James has been playing the same snarky character for 5 years! Jared has been playing different characters in one character for 5 years! So quit thinking about which is your favorite show or who is funnier because Jared is hands down the best under-appreciated actor around!
Jared Padalecki is great and shoyld win this hands down.Just like the people choice awards to
James Roday is the undoubtedly is the most under appreciated entertainer. His character Shawn in psych is so refreshing.
Wassup wit all the Padalecki obsession? Roday's got the on-screen comedy bull by the horns! Damn right, he has! RODAY and HILL made PSYCH what it is. CAn't you all see that? Padalecki totally sucked in Gilmore Girls (try comparing his performance with that of Milo's), and was manageable in SUpernatural (although it's hard to tell when u got a co-star like Jensen Ackles). I've seen Roday on Psych only, but I am already convinced this guy's a genius, and deserves to be recognized. Too bad he's under-appreciated! I certainly hope he wins!
JARED JARED JARED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! An amazing actor with great talent and a big heart. Supernatural is on it's sixth season and the boys don't get enough recognition. Vote Jared and vote Supernatural on the people's choice awards :) http://www.peopleschoice.com/pca/vote/votenow.jsp?category=&pollId=&optionId=
Underappreciated doesn't mean unknown or has less fans. It means they don't get the credit they deserve. Just sayin'. And though I love both shows, I voted Jared.
JARED JARED JARED. HE IS A GREAT ACTOR. AND NEEDS TO WIN THISSSSS.
Jared Padalecki all the way. I don't watch or even know the other show. But, as I read from your comments, it's comedy one, I think. So to all those people comparing Jared with James. How do you compare a Drama actor with a Comedy actor? It does not make sense. And don't say one deserves it more than the other, they're both in this poll, so they are both underrated actors. But at least James gets support from fans of his show. Where on Supernatural, Jensen is the one getting all the love and recognition. So yeah, my vote will go to Jared.
I would always vote for James Roday in ANY competition, that's positive of course. We're talking about entertainer, not actor. James has done so many entertaining works like shows, movies, and theater jobs that it's hard to believe that a lot of people know who he is. He definitely is the under-appreciated of the two.
Everybody knows who that Jared guy is, but not the awesomeness that is James Roday :)
I think Jared is a brilliant actor. I've really enjoyed the series Supernatural, but Jared came into his own when he starred in Friday 13th. That was an excellent film , admittedly the cast was very strong. The character Jared played was very believable.Jared's character, Sam in Supernatural is totally in contrast to his supporting actor Jenson Ackles who plays Dean. I hope Jared can play more quality roles, he deserves them, he is very much under appreciated as an actor i think he can do so much more, which will be proved when he is given a more demanding role. I hope he wins this poll, he deserves to. D. Johns.
Here's a Jared vote from Florida! Love his work as Sam in Supernatural! GOOOOO JARED!!!!
JJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEDDDDDDDDDDDDDD................. JARED PADALECKI ALL THE WAYYYYY!!!!
I didn't even know Supernatural was still on. JAMES RODAY!!!!!!
JARED.............. JARED............ JARED........... VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE............. JARED IS A GREAT ACTOR............ JARED'S FUNS....... WE HAVE TO WORK VERY HARD.............. PLEASE JARED HAVE TO WIN
JARED... JARED...JARED.. JARED... THE BEST ACTOR EVER... I LOVE HIM.. AND I HAVE A OBSSESIN WITH HIM........... I AM 100% SAMMY GIRL....... JARED IS AWESOME ACTOR... I KNOW HIM... I HAVE SEEN HIM SINCE FIRST SUPERNATURAL SEASON.......... PLEASE JARED HAVE TO WIN... VOTE VOTE VOTE FOR JARED.........
Both of these guys are getting a lot of love. No one else's comments even come close. It was a tough choice but I had to go with Jared because his contributions to the series are often overlooked in favor of his shiny co-star. ;) Mean EW. Making us choose like that.
I voted for Jared because he gets way less attention from critics and fans of Supernatural than Jensen Ackles, while doing a great job as well. I love his Sam. Go Jared!!
I love James Roday. He is a great actor and fantastic at what he does. I think it's cruel to put him in a category with Jared Padalecki. Why? Because Jared is also a great actor. He takes whatever the writers throw at him and nails it every single time. He's great at the more dramatic roles where James is great at the comic roles. It's not fair to put them together. But I choose Jared simply because I'm more emotionally evolved in his work. Jared has to play so many roles in ONE character. He makes you believe whatever it is his character is supposed to be dealing with or feeling.
Love love LOVE Jared!! I've watched Psych here and there and James is pretty funny, but Jared is brilliant doing drama, action, and humor, and he is SO under-appreciated. So many fans are all about Jensen, but the show would fall apart without Jared as well. He needs some love, guys!!
You can't do a POLL to figure out who the most UNDER-APPRECIATED actor is, because if someone is under-appreciated, they won't have as many fans; they won't get as many votes. Whoever thought this was a good idea should be hanged.
Yeah, N8- your argument is kind of invalid, because if Jared won then of course people would thing that James is the under appreciated actor, and if James won then everyone thinks Jared is the under appreciated actor. So...
Padalecki 4 Lyfe.
Or Jared's fans want to get people to appreciate him more...
The fact that James Roday is losing in the polls is fact enouph that he is more under appreciated. So to prove the point to be made of who is more under rated will probably be Roday because not enouph people apparently appreciate witt and 80's movie references, Roday all the way! But tp prove the point of being underated the winner is really the loser Pscych!
Sum of you ppl are horrible. seriously if you were true fans of Supernatural especially Jared's Sam is epic he's a perfect match for Dean Jensen's Character. they work together amazingly especially Misha Collins they were all made to act with each other an especially when they do like public speaking if u notice Jensen is a lot shyer the Jared so when they put them together its perfect an they get along like real brothers, they seriously have each others back an i love it. I love all the cast of Supernatural.
They are BOTH wayyyyyy under-appreciated. Bottom line. So, it's a tough one.. Jared will always have my vote thought
JAMES RODAY FTW!!!!!!!!!
James Roday is very unknown and therefore deserves to win. As for the comments, I think Jared fans are just not commenting as much. Psych is way more underappreciated, unfortunately. I wish it wasn't :(
jared padalecki all the way!
The key word here is entertainer not necesarily actor. James' phenominal talent is not merely restricted to acting. James is a writer, actor, director, producer and even has a theater company. He does it all!
James Roday all the way!!
I voted for jared even though I love both actors. The contest is for most under appreciated. James gets the lion share of attention on his show and he should because he's awesome--Dule is the under appreciated one. :) On Supernatural, Jensen Ackles gets a lot of attention (which he totally deserves) while the writers continue to write Jared's character into one thankless situation after another and Jared nails it everytime. He is hitting it out of the park this season in particular. Hugs for James but votes for Jared!
When this James Roday guy can play LUCIFER and A GUY WITHOUT A SOUL and an abdorable GOOD-HEARTED COLLEGE KID...let me know b/c so far I've just seen him make a few people laugh. JARED ALL THE WAY!!!!!!
Jared is better and way more under appreciated! everyone knows Pyshc but not everyone knows Supernatural! but they should!
Hahaha, wow that's a long comment! i was just venting my feelings. but good luck to both of the actors. p.s. go Jared!
Actually this is a very hard choice to me. I've been a fan of both shows since they first started. And I think I can say that both these actors are very underappreciated. And therefore I didn't vote at all.
Jared should definitely win. And people who are saying "he's just a kid with good looks" are wrong. first off, because he is not a kid. if i'm correct, he's in his late 20's. young, yes. but a kid ? no. and good looks are always appreciated. and i think it's pretty funny how almost all of these comments are voting for James. i thought this was under appreciated actors ? how ironic, if all these people know him, then why the hell is he on here anyway ? obviously he isn't under appreciated. Jared has played in a number of films, which i thought were absolutely fantastic and some of the most known movies out there. Friday the 13th and House of Wax are both classic horror films that almost everyone has seen. and when i ask people if they know Jared Padalecki, they say. "uhhh no" or "who's that ?" and sometimes after i explain what all he has been in, they still don't know. Jared Padalecki is very under appreciated for the work he has done. his acting skills are pure genius. this contest is so diverse, i can't believe it's even a contest. i wonder how Jared or James would feel about this ? anyway, i just thought it was funny how all of this is supposed to be a contest over who is the more under appreciated actor, yet, all the votes are for James. so he's obviously appreciated more than people think. and no offense to James, but it's a matter of who is a fan of who. and i'm obviously for Jared so go Jared!
I wouldent be disapointed if ither one them won. ;)
But I voted for Jared simply because I've loved him since the very first eps of supernatural premired.
Honestly, I do believe that both of these men deserve to be recognized to the greatest of extents, but my vote goes to Jared Padalecki. Why? Because I've been following his career since Gilmore Girls, and quite honestly- I can't see it going anywhere but forward.
Four for you Jared Padalecki.
You go Jared Padalecki.
Okay, Supernatural gets way less press than Psych meaning that way more people see and appreciate James than Jared. Also, most of the comments here are supporting and 'appreciating' James. Therefore Jared should win this. :P
Dont get me wrong I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE Psych, but it isn't under appreciated neither is James Roday..... Jared is wayy more under-appreciated.
WHAT!!! u guys are all wacked out... Jared is way better than this chump because supernatural is the best TV show known to man... ive seen both of them and i vote for jared 110%. You have to see supernatural to know how good jared is and im just mad that jensen ackles isnt on the poll...
As a huge fan of both of their major shows, I still have to say that James is a better actor because of his style. His level of acting is a lot harder to pull off.
I like pysch good enuf, but I'm a supernatural girl all the way and Jared is over looked alot
JJJAAAARREDDDD!!!! TEAM WINCHESTERS DAMMINT!
Obviously Jared. I'm not a Psych fan and find it to be a bore. I'm surprised people actually watch the show. Jared has shown exceptional acting skills on Supernatural and is definitely underappreciated for his ability to be flexible on screen while still holding his character.
Everyone who votes should keep in mind the title of the poll. It's not 'Which actor is the hottest?' or 'Which actor do you like more?'. It is 'Which entertainer is more under-appreciated?' The answer is easily James Roday. Don't get me wrong, I love both Jared and James; Supernatural and Psych are two of my favorite TV Shows. But it's easy to see James is the more under-appreciated of the two.
why no jensen? i like jared.but i love jensen i think he should hve been on this one.:(
but hope jared wins.:) and they should win peoples choice.whts up with tht? loll.
I went with Jared because of Supernatural, absolutley one of the best shows on TV. That said, this was a really tough choice both are favorites of mine in their different genres.
I love both these guys!! Why did you have to put them against each other??
Can I vote for both?
i love Jared and i think he is an amazing actor, i dont even know who that other guy is but i know Jared is awsome, and not just because he is hot.
Jared is so talented. He is such a great actor. I don't know James Roday and I really don't care. I think Jared should win.
Funny how the poll is for most under-appreciated, yet James Roday is getting twice as many votes as Jared Padalecki...
JARED PADALECKI SHOULD WIN!!! james roday is very funny but there isnt even a contest between the two! jared has so much diversity, he can be the sweet college kid who just wantes the do whats right and do a total 180 and be freaking LUCIFER!!! he shows his amazing acting abilities every episode and he never falters. JARED PADALECKI HANDS DOWN!!!
I definitely think Roday. He's a writer, director, and actor. No contest, here. Roday, and all of Psych for that matter, needs much more recognition than it currently receives. Go James!
He's such a talented actor and deserves more credit then he is given! I have watched him grow from being Dean on Gilmore Girls to Sam Winchester on Supernatural! His talent expands every season! He should definitely win!
As much as i like Jared, and Supernatural, James Roday is way more under-appreciated. Go James, Go Psych!
James Roday all the way! Psych is a fantastic show. James Roday and Dule Hill are awesome.
James Roday gets my vote all the way! He totally deserves some recognition for his fantabulous work on Psych!
I am Rafael!! I am! -Waves hand in the air vigorously-
James Roday is the best, make sure to watch Psych tonight everyone!
James Roday, ~No Contest!~Shawn and Gus are back with more humor.
Tune in to the season premiere TONIGHT at 10/9c on USA!
~Who else is pumped for tonight's episode?~
Chris, you're retarded. James is a fantastic actor, the success of Psych is proof of that. So if you don't know who they're talking about when they mention James, that just goes to show how under appreciated he is....Go do some research.
james roday is by far the better of any entertainer on this list and would want to meet him more than anyone else in the entire world, him and dule are by far the best comidic pair on tv iv seen in along time and feel like i like them better than half my friends. James all the way!
James has to win! He's by far the best out there and nobody knows who he is. People may not know Jared by his real name but all you have to do is name "dean" or "sam" and people know who your talking about, theres a lot of people who have never even seen psych. Which is crazy everyone should watch it, it brings lots of joy to your soul :D
Jared. I don't even know this James, nor do I appreciate him. Jared is constantly overlooked and it's criminal. Jared all the way, the kid deserves it/
James Roday all the way! Jared is far more appreciated than James, and far less deserving. Diana, if I could "like" your post I totally would :D!
Don't be a gooey chocolate chip cookie, vote for James ;)
I love Jared Padelecki and the role he plays, but James Roday is byfar the superior actor and the most under-appreciated in the industry. He is a comic genius!!!!!
Clearly some have underappreciated James Roday... Kady, don't be this crevice in my arm ;)
James Roday is truley an under-appreciated entertainer. Not only is he a wonderful actor but he is also a writer, director, producer and even has a theater company. You name it James Roday does it and does it well! H'e got to me my favorite entertainer of all time hands down. It's about time he got some much deserved recognition!
James Roday, no contest! Hilarious, witty, charming, and socially awkward - my kind of guy! I don't even KNOW who the other guy is, honestly.
Without a doubt James Roday is the most under-appreciated actor. He is a brilliant actor and goes under the radar. I can mention Jared Padalecki to my friends and they'll know him but mention James Roday and they're all like "Who?" So basing it actually on the name of the poll it has to be Roday
I love me some Psych, but I've been in love with Jared since he was Dean on Gilmore Girls... so he wins!
