I’ve uploaded screen captures of Nathan in the official Con Man trailer, as well as from his interview with TV Line for SDCC 2015. You can head over to Nathan Fillion Online‘s photogallery, enjoy!
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…
Nathan Fillion fans can relax: outlandish behaviour at this year’s Supanova Pop Culture Expo will not see you lampooned in his upcoming online TV series Con Man just yet.
Fillion, who is a fan favourite at conventions for his role in the short-lived cult sci-fi series Firefly, as well as his six-year stint as crime-fighting novelist Castle, is co-producing the show created and written by Firefly cast mate Alan Tudyk.
The comedy series, which raised more than $US3.1 million ($4 million) on crowdfunding platform Indiegogo in April, is based loosely on their experiences after Firefly was cancelled in 2002.
“Last year at this time, Alan said he was signing on to do a couple more cons because he needed ideas for some episodes,” Fillion toldAAA with a laugh. “He is the one who has been writing all of the episodes, it is really his baby and he has allowed me to tag along with him on his adventure.
“Filming has started, it is almost midway through and everything is going really well.”
This year’s Supanova marks Fillion’s first trip to Perth but he said previous visits to Australia had taught him to expect “light-hearted, excited and energetic” fans.
I’ll be uploading all of Nathan’s photos from this weekends Dallas Comic Con 2015 to the gallery below. Enjoy the photos and check out Nathan Fillion Online‘s photogallery for more photos 🙂

Although Con Man had already confirmed panels at both San Diego Comic-Con and Nerd HQ, thanks to producer PJ Haarsma, we now have some more details about not only what the Con Man SDCC schedule is going to look like, but a better idea about the convention as a whole.
— Con Man (@ConManSeries) May 7, 2015
In a “Hang w/” chat earlier this evening for backers of the Indiegogo campaign, Haarsma mentioned the days and times for both panels:
Question: More about Comic-Con and Nerd HQ please?
Haarsma: Okay, panel is Thursday the 9th, I think it’s at 3:45. It’s right between Doctor Who and Marvel, and then we’ll be doing press in the morning, and then after hopefully there will be a party somewhere and we’ll announce it, and then Friday Alan’s going to be hosting Nerd HQ and we’ll be doing a Con Man panel at Nerd HQ and then partying there Friday night.
Although we think Haarsma probably has a firm grip on Con Man‘s SDCC schedule, the rest should be taken with a grain of salt.
Holding a panel…
