Denver Comic Con, which has rapidly grown in recent years to become one of the biggest comic conventions in North America, and is also the a program of education nonprofit Pop Culture Classroom (PCC), has announced that Nathan Fillion has been added to the guest line-up for its June 30 – July 2, 2017 event at the Colorado Convention Center.
Entering its sixth year, Denver Comic Con presents more than 400 hours of programming sessions during which artists, creators, celebrities and industry experts talk about their craft and their creations, as well as its family-friendly mission and environment. The largest portion of the show floor, more than 9,000 sq. ft., is dedicated to teens and children with activities designed to engage kids in education through pop culture.
Always a fan-favorite, Fillion is well-known for his collaborations with Joss Whedon, starting with his role as Captain Malcom Reynolds in 2002’s television series Firefly, for the feature film adaption Serenity, a recurring role as Caleb on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, as Captain Hammer on Whedon’s Emmy-winning web series, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. Fillion also appeared in Whedon’s screen adaption of Much Ado About Nothing as Dogberry.
Denver Comic Con director Christina Angel says:
Nathan Fillion is easily our most-requested guest. I’m personally thrilled to be hosting him and I’m excited to give fans the experience so many have been asking for.
Fillion has embraced his role as a pop-culture icon in Alan Tudyk’s Con Man, a series available on Comic Con HQ about an actor trying to break out of his type-cast while earning a living on the comic con circuit. Fillion plays Jack Moore, an actor who has a much higher standing in the pop culture community than the main character. He’s also known in the mainstream for his work on ABC’s series Castle, running for 8 seasons and more than 170 episodes, among other roles.
Fillion joins other notable Denver Comic Con guests such as:
Billie Piper, Bonnie Wright, Eliza Dushku, Felicia Day, Finn Jones, Gaten Matarazzo and Caleb McLaughlin, Khary Payton, Wallace Shawn, Weird Al Yankovic and Ben McKenzie, Morena Baccarin and Robin Lord Taylor.
