Montreal Comiccon lineup!
Alright all you geeks and freaks, the Montreal ComicCon announced its official lineup at a sizzling press conference at Terrasses Bonsecours on the waterfront of Old Montreal yesterday.
Being Human’s Kristen Hager, C-3PO, and the incredible Hulk were among the special guests on-site to help reveal the exciting news.
I joined in on all the fun in the sun to bring you these highlights.
Trekies, brace yourselves, this is crazy. Not one, but two captains of the starship Enterprise are headlining this year’s event. William Shatner and Sir Patrick Stewart are on board!
The two icons will be joined by Brent Spiner, who you know as Commander Data, John de Lancie who starred as Q across multiple Star Trek installments and video games, and Wil Wheaton aka Wesley Crusher of Star Trek: The Next Generation (also known for his recurring gig on The Big Bang Theory as himself).
For horror fanatics, Malcolm McDowell, infamous for his unforgettable performances in Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange and Rob Zombie’s Halloween reboot, will be there to creep you out, that is if Gunnar Hansen, the original Leatherface from 1974’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre, doesn’t get to you first.
A little easier on the eyes, the cast of Being Human will be in the house. Sam Huntington, Meaghan Rath and Kristen Hager will come knocking, but Saturday only.
Speaking of hit TV, you a fan of Smallville? Jimmy Olsen (Aaron Ashmore) and Supergirl (Laura Vandervoort) are flying by.
Warehouse 13 represents. Eddie McClintock is going to catch up with Aaron at the event.
And if you’re a Buffy die hard like me, you’re probably psyched about Nicholas Brendon and James Marsters spending the weekend. Don’t miss Friday night of Comiccon weekend. James takes the stage for a special concert.
This is going to be amazing. Now everybody scream!
Oh, and I recommend you get your tickets online prior to the event, don’t wait for the door. Who wants to be turned away from a full house?
