Nathan Fillion is no stranger to the superhero universe. Fillion has voiced Green Lantern in multiple DC Comics animated features, and he played a monstrous inmate in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
While appearing at Wizard World Comic Con Chicago, Fillion was asked who he would play if he could have his pick of any character from the Marvel or DC universe.
“I think I could take a pretty good crack at Booster Gold,” said Fillion. “That’s kind of my niche… show-offy, vain. I think I could handle that… not too bright.”
I’ve uploaded 6 HQ ‘tagged’ portrait photos of Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk from SDCC 2015 for Con Man. You can head over to Nathan Fillion Online’s photogallery to view them, enjoy! Untagged and UHQ versions will be uploaded when I can get my hands on them, stay tuned.
When the cult sci-fi show Firefly was canceled after only 7-episodes on Fox a decade ago, lesser sidekick actors would have disappeared into the entertainment abyss. Alan Tudyk (Knight’s Tale) could of been one of those tragi-comic fallen heroes, always in the shadow of his bigger or more successful co-star Nathan Fillion (Castle). But that was not the future in store for Tudyk, he instead kept acting and landing good roles– all while continuing to attend conventions based around his past sci-fi success.
For over a year-and-a-half, Tudyk decided to start drawing from all the fresh and fun stories that he experienced at 14-years of conventions. Thus, the Con Man idea came to fruition. His first task was to start hitting up all his successful and talented acting friends and see if they would be interested in such a concept. Of course, they all said “hell yes!” After taking his project the normal route of studios to hit nothing but “no’s”, Tudyk decided to do something different…
Earlier this year Alan launched one of the most successful Indiegogo campaigns for his Con Man. Con Man would go on to raise 4.2 million dollars, making it the most successful web series ever and the third highest film to ever raise…

Things are getting pretty meta for Alan Tudyk and his Con Man cast. Tudyk has worked on a number of shows that led him to make the convention rounds (Firefly for one, which also stars Nathan Fillion) and now he’s working on Con Man, a web series inspired by those ‘Con experiences. No surprise: He’s making the convention rounds for that too.
Tudyk — along with Fillion, producer PJ Haarsma, Mindy Sterling, Tricia Helfer, and more — participated in the Con Man: The Fan Revolt 13 Years in the Making panel on Thursday. Following the panel, the group headed over to an intimate cast party hosted by Entertainment Weekly, Indiegogo, and Vimeo, and spoke a bit more about the web series (due on Vimeo on Sept. 30).
Tudyk says there wasn’t an experience from Comic-Con, specifically, that made it into the series, but there’s definitely references to San Diego’s pop-culture behemoth. “There’s going to be a Comic-Con-type Con that’s going to be a fake Comic-Con, called the Shock-a-Con that is the holy grail of cons that Wray wants to get invited to, but he’s never been invited,” Tudyk, clearly a lover of puns, says of his character.
He adds: “It’s the hope that he can finally make it to the Shock-a-Con, the myth…
I’ve started uploading and gathering photos of Nathan from day 1 at SDCC 2015 to our photogallery. Please head over to Nathan Fillion Online’s photogallery for the collection, and be sure to check back because I’ll be updating them for the next few days!
Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion’s Con Man is leveling up. The web series isn’t just making an appearance at San Diego Comic-Con, it’s taking the stage of all stages: Hall H. In short, they’re not kidding around. The panel, titled “Con Man – The Fan Revolt 13 Years in the Making – How Indiegogo and Vimeo helped Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion put Fans First and Realize a Dream Project,” will feature the world premiere of the first ever clip from the show and offer a glimpse into what went on behind-the-scenes to make the project happen.
In case Con Man is somehow not on your radar, the web series is a meta story about the life of a man who was once a star in a cult classic sci-fi series but now tours the convention circuit. Wray Nerely (Tudyk) is learning to love and embrace his fans, while his former co-star Jack Moore (Fillion) has moved on and become a celebrity. The show was funded on Indiegogo to the tune of 3.2 million dollars–it’s the third highest funding film project on any crowdfunding platform.
And you can bet Tudyk and Fillion are pulling out all the stops as far as…
