Great Philadelphia Comic Con has added Alan Tudyk to their guest roster for the con on April 7-9, 2017. The convention will be held at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center at 100 Station Avenue, Oaks, PA.
Tudyk’s credits cross film, TV, voice acting, and stage work. He is the creator and star of the webseries Con Man, as well as the executive producer with Nathan Fillion and author P.J. Haarsma. The show was funded by Indiegogo and had a record breaking run earning $3.2 million from over 46,000 fans around the world. Loosely based on his and Fillion’s experiences with fans, the second season will debut on Lionsgate’s Comic-Con HG on December 8.
In the early 2000s, he starred in the short-lived, though passionately loved, TV show Firefly. Created by Joss Whedon, the show combined elements of sci-fi in space with cowboys in the Old West.
In 2016 he loaned his voice to the scene stealing security droid K-2SO in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. He also voiced characters in animated films, including Duke of Weselton in Frozen, King Candy in Wreck-It Ralph, and Heihei in Moana.
Currently, Tudyk is starring in DC Comics’ first sitcom, Powerless on NBC. He stars as Van Wayne, working for Wayne Security, where they try to help people who have been victims of battles between superheroes and villains.
He’s joining fellow media stars Angus Macinnes (Judge Dredd), David Ankrum (voice A New Hope), Alan Harris (Empire Strikes Back), Sean Schemmel and Mike McFarland (voice Dragonball Z), Veronica Taylor (Sailor Moon), Marina Sirtis (Star Trek: The Next Generation), Bruce Boxleitner (Tron), John Wesley Shipp (The Flash), and Karan Ashley and Walter Jones (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers).
Comics guests include Neal Adams (Superman), Mike Zeck (The Amazing Spider-Man), Jim Shooter (Secret Wars), Michael Golden (Doctor Strange), Ty Templeton (Batman ’66), Chriscross (Unity), and Graham Nolan (Detective Comics).
