It's another on the road edition of the show as I return to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre for my Day 1 coverage of Wizard World Toronto Comic-Con that took place April 14 & 15, 2012. Along with my observations on the event you get a star-studded cast of celebrity guests to interview. First up I catch with a woman who knows her vampires when I chat with The Pop Culture Professor herself Dr. Rebecca Housel (www.rebeccahousel.com) as we discuss the evolution of the creatures of the night. Then it's a leap off to a galaxy far far away ( and I don't mean Star Wars) when I chat with actor Lance Guest (The Last Starfighter) as we talk about the ground breaking film and the impact it had in movies. It's more Last Starfighter talk when I talk with actress Catherine Mary Stewart (Mischief, The Last Starfighter ) (www.catherinemarystewart.com) about her roles in both films . I catch up with another actor who got his start as a kid in the Star Wars franchies with actor Daniel Logan (Star Wars : Attack of The Clones, Star Wars Clone Wars) who talks about what it was like to get a role of a lifetime and continuing the character in the world of animation. I wrap the day with a trip to an actor from the Whedonverse with my interview with actor Sean Maher (Firefly) who talks about his role of Simon and working with the cast and crew. Music for this episode features the song Black Hole by Victor Stellar that can be found at www.famemusic.com. Other instrumental music is by the band Mr. Burns (www.mrburnsmusic.com). As always your comments and suggestions are welcome.
