They are two best friends, Firefly alum, and probably the only two guys that can get both nerdy boys and girls to drop their underoos with burning man desire. They are Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion. These two well known stars of TV and film have been around the Convention circuit offering their stories, egos, and devilishly handsome looks to elated fans. Now they’re now using their experience with cons to transform the weird and wonderful world of conventions into a web series. It’s called Con Man and will be written, directed and star Tudyk with Fillion co-starring as well as producing.

The series focuses on the actors’ experiences after their show’s cancellation, as they make their way into the convention circuit. As Tudyk explains in the video below, outsiders often think that science fiction fans are the weirdest part about a convention when, in truth, the strangest characters can be found behind the scenes.

Already they have their Firefly cast members Sean Maher and Gina Torres along for the ride as well as James Gunn, Seth Green, Felicia Day and Amy Acker, just to start. (more…)

Firefly Ten Year Reunion Panel At 2012 SDCC

There is a scheduled panel for the Firefly 10 year reunion including the entire cast and our nerd lord and master, show creator Joss Whedon. Don’t get your hopes up, there won’t be any announcements or breaking news about a new Firefly movie, or television show, or Broadway musical, at best there maybe a book or new comic book story line series.

Even without the faintest hope that the franchise might get some rebirth, this will be one of the hottest panels at the show this year. You should just get in line after getting your badge, or just get in the line now forming.

Hmm, Broadway musical. Yeah I’d buy a ticket to see that.
