Lou Ferrigno, Alan Tudyk among This Weekend’s El Paso Comic Con Featured Guests
Steve the Pirate and TV’s The Incredible Hulk are scheduled to appear at El Paso Comic-Con this weekend. Well, their real-life alter egos will.
Actor and El Paso native Alan Tudyk and Lou Ferrigno are among the celebrity guests at the comic book and sci-fi festival being held at the Convention Center beginning Friday.
Tudyk (pronounced “too-dick”), who was born in El Paso but did not grow up here, is best known for his role as the smart-aleck pilot Wash on the sci-fi cult classic Firefly and as Steve the Pirate in the 2004 comedy Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story.
He currently stars as Bruce Wayne’s cousin, Van Wayne, in the NBC show Powerless — the first comedy series set in the DC universe.
Ferrigno is famous for playing the mindless angry alter ego to David Banner on the late ‘70s/early ‘80s TV series The Incredible Hulk. He and Tudyk are scheduled to appear on both Saturday and Sunday.
Other guests appearing at the the 3-day event include Yaya Han, “The Queen of Cosplay”, and Martin Klebba whose most recognizable role is as one of Captain Jack Sparrow’s Black Pearl Crew in all the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, including the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales.
Ticket info and a lot more details can be found on the El Paso Comic Con website. El Paso Comi-Con is this Friday through Sunday, April 21-23, 2017 at the Convention Center. Cool, that gives me just enough time to get my Klingon outfit dry cleaned.
