Monday, July 21st – Emerald City Comicon (ECCC) announced that actor, Mark Sheppard, will be amongst the celebrity guests for the 2014 line-up. (Of course things can change, yadda yadda.)
I’m super excited for this announcement, being as I most recently have seen this actor on Supernatural (SPN) as his portrayal of the character “Crowley.” Crowley starts off as a crossroads-demon in the series, then eventually becomes the King of Hell. (*ahem* I apologize in advance if I got the starting off title wrong, I’m trying to do this from my memory and sometimes it fails me. Don’t sue me.)
It had been a few weeks or so since I checked the line-up and I was also happily surprised to see an old familiar face on the line-up as well! J. August Richards! I know him from the Angel series, as he portrayed Charles Gunn. The brute of Angel’s posse against Vampires and other mystical beings from Joss Whedon’s world.
The other celebrity guests mentioned on the ECCC website are:
Richard Dean Anderson (MacGyver), Michael Biehn (The Terminator), Jennifer Blanc-Biehn (Dark Angel), Nichelle Nichols (Star Trek), & Dwight Schultz (A-Team, Star Trek: TNG, Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek: First Contact)
PLEASE refer to ECCC’s website for all celebrity guests that are added or changed between now and the date of the con. We all know stuff can happen with our schedules, proof with last year as Carrie Fisher (Star Wars) had to cancel within the month or so before the con.
Oh and if you’re interested in volunteering – they are now accepting minion applications.
I might volunteer for 2014. If any year, it will probably be 2014. Well… maybe! Anyone out there volunteering?
