Everyone Ever to Appear at NYCC

Have you looked at the guest list for next week’s New York Comic Con? It’s crazy loaded when it comes to TV guests (and super loaded when it comes to actual comic book peeps, which I think may be in part because a) it’s New York and b) both Marvel and DC have their head offices there). Now granted, conventions usually have their fair share of science fiction, horror, and othernycc-rightnycc-left types of guests who share a large geek cross-pollination. But there are a lot considering that NYCC is if February. One of the reasons San Diego gets so many media guests is because they can pimp the upcoming seasons. You can check out the full guest list right here.

Jared’s going to be there, pimping his Friday the 13th remake not SPN (and check out his bio on that guests page, for some reason they’re pushing that he was in Gilmore Girls instead of SPN, weird). Also on the Friday the 13th ticket are Amanda Righetti from The Mentalist and the guy playing Jason, who’s been in one episode of everything that needs a creepy looking big guy.

Adult Swim will be well represented, with both Doc Hammer and Jackson Publick hopefully showing off some Venture Bros season four stuff (you should also read both of their con bios, they’re awesome); and Seth Green and Matt Senreich to pimp the already-started season four of Robot Chicken.

Fringe is also well represented, with John Noble (Walter) and Jasika Nicole (my fav character, Astrid) in attendance.

Joss Whedon is there, showing off the first few minutes of Dollhouse a week early and generally being awesome. Sticking with Dollhouse, Tahmoh ‘Helo’ Penikett! And sticking with BSG, Aaron Douglas!

Milo will be there for non-Heroesy purposes (check out his comic Rest btw, I’ve only read the preview and the first issue, but it’s been really good so far), McG will be there to hype you up for the new Batman vs Terminators movie this summer, Marina Sirtis fulfills the requisite Star Trek actor slot, Smallville’s Martian Manhunter is there to… do stuff, Torchwood’s Eve Myles will also be doing stuff, and pilot director extraordinaire David Nutter is there too, hopefully to show something from the Band of Brothers pseudo-sequel.

This is only a sampling of the TV-related awesome that’s there (if you search through the entire roster you can find more, Amber Benson is hidden away in the ‘literary guests’ section (I could go on a rant about how annoying their eighteen thousand different guest classifications are, buuuuut I won’t). I’m almost glad I won’t be there actually, as even with the TV peeps alone there’s waaaaay too much to do in just three days, and it would be annoying to be so close to so much awesome but have to miss out. Miss out for other awesome granted, but it would still suck.

  1. you know, I was thinking the same thing. There’s SO much to do that there’s no way you could possibly see everything you wanted to see. Not to mention the numbers of people this would attract. It’s going to be a madhouse, but an awesome one.

    Martian Manhunter is actually there for something with Aaron Douglas. oh stalking pays off..

    It’s official! Phil Morris and I have been working very hard to put together a new series we created called Emissary and at the next New York Comic Con we’re going to preview it for you. Comic book legend Neal Adams is involved as are some awesome actors from shows like Battlestar Galactica and X-Files. Phil and I are very proud of what we’ve put together so far and by February we’re going to have an awesome panel for you.I’m slated to direct several episodes with writing credit split between myself, Phil and possibly Neal. Other actors whom I’ve worked with before who will be returning are Sean Hampton (Eleventh Hour) and J LaRose (Saw3, Repo: The Genetic Opera)

    The panel will be Friday Feb. 6th, 2009 at 6pm

  2. Gabe and Tycho are going to be there and they never head East.

    Also, Seth Green has a sweet beard.

  3. oooh more Emissary info:

    The series follows forensic archaeologist Campbell Essex and the path in which he learns his true destiny as “The Emissary” — the latest in a long line of selective breeding by conflicting ancient cults. As he uncovers clues to his own identity he’s confronted by a dark conspiracy that spans millennia.

    Sounds like Fringe meets DarkAngel…

  4. speaking of Seth Green’s beard, I saw him on bonnie hunt a few days ago and he has purple highlights in black hair right now.
