It really shouldn’t be a shock that the cast of the new Vimeo series Con Man delivered one of the most fun panels of this year’s New York Comic Con — they’ve been friends in real life for years, and they all have an undying love for conventions like this one and all the people who attend them.
The silliness began right away, as stars Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion came on stage behind cardbord cut-outs of one another. Throughout the panel, the cast was constantly cracking one another up, and the audience as well. Felicia Day had to take a moment after she and Seth Green started riffing about if someone cosplaying as Daenerys Targaryen has brought three Chihuahuas along with her to a McDonalds. The pair were also all giggles when they began to imagine how a kung fu movie would look as a laugh track sitcom. It was clear these actors were having as much fun as the audience.
And the panel really was all about the fans. Tudyk, who created and stars in the semi-autobiographical Con Man as struggling actor but convention superstar Wray Nerely, thanked the audience excessively for making the series possible. The show was made possible through crowdfunding site…
In 2002, FOX cancelled its promising, Joss Whedon-helmed sci-fi series Firefly after airing only 11 of its 14 episodes. The show’s small (at least by network TV standards at that time) but loyal audience never lost interest, though, and the series eventually became a hit on DVD. Its success on that format spawned a spin-off movie (Serenity), fan sites, fan fiction and elaborate cosplay. A 2014 cast reunion at a Dallas sci-fi convention was a major cause for celebration. Today, more than a decade after airing its last original episode, Firefly is still kind of a big deal.
Inspired by their personal experiences attending sci-fi conventions over the last decade, Firefly co-stars Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion crowdsourced a production budget for a short fictional series about sci-fi conventions called Con Man. The duo turned to Indiegogo earlier this year with their pitch, and the response was staggering: 47,000 individual contributors raised a robust $3.1 million. With an original funding goal of $425,000, Tudyk and Fillion raised $1 million the first day and expanded their original plan for a three-episode miniseries to 13 episodes.
Con Man premiered last week on Vimeo for $15.
Tudyk, who wrote and directed the series, stars as a washed-up actor who has lived out his career attending sci-fi conventions as the former co-star of a long-ago-cancelled Firefly-like series called Spectrum. Fillion, best-known for starring…
Friday, Oct. 9 Con Man
WHEN: 7:00–8:00 p.m. WHERE: Empire Stage 1-E WHAT: In what will very likely be the most meta panel of the year, Con Man creator and star Alan Tudyk is bringing the cast of his semi-autobiographical show about conventions to this convention. Tudyk was raised a record-breaking $3.2 million on Indiegogo to fund his dream project that he’s been wanting to make for 13 years. Hear stars Tudyk, Nathan Fillion, P.J. Haarsma, Felicia Day, Seth Green, and Keely Flaherty talk about the unique show.
I’ve added UHQ photos of Nathan Fillion at Extra today (October 2nd 2015) to Nathan Fillion Online’s photogallery. I believe he was there promoting Con Man with Alan. Special thanks to Holly for the photos!
I’ve added episode stills for Castle 8×03 “What Lies Beneath” and 8×04 “PhDead” to Nathan Fillion Online’s photogallery. Enjoy 🙂
