Last year I stumbled into the Masters of the Web panel at Comic Con hung over from the Masters of the Web party the night before. I wondered if it was possible to get a worst spot on the Con schedule than Sunday late morning. Turns out it is! This year we’re at 10am on Thursday, making us one of the first panels of the convention. Most Con goers won’t even be in San Diego yet!
But in case the idea of seeing me dominate a panel with wit and charm is not enough, this year Robert Sanchez and his IESB mafiosa will be handing out ten pairs tickets to Saturday night’s Masters of the Web party. Sure, you’re thinking, an opportunity to party with Devin and Russ from CHUD, the guys from JoBlo, Aint It Cool, Latino Review, IESB, Coming Soon and other websites is nice, but is that it?
No, that is not it! There will be celebrity guests as well. Here’s who they have coming so far:
Jason Statham (Death Race), Len Wiseman (Live Free or Die Hard), Rhona Mitra (Doomsday), David Goyer (writer of The Dark Knight), Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes, Rocky Balboa), Derek Mears (Jason from Friday the 13th), Bill Nighy (Pirates of the Caribbean, Hot Fuzz), John Cho (Star Trek, Harold & Kumar), Simon Pegg (Star Trek), Sophie Monk (The Hills Run Red), Efren Ramirez (Napoleon Dynamite), Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother), Lena Headey (300, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), Thomas Dekker (Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles, Heroes), Jamie King (The Spirit, Sin City), Patrick Tatopoulos (director of Underworld 3: Rise of the Lycans), Kyle Newman (director of Fanboys), Mark Neveldine & Brian Taylor (directors of The Game), Corey Haim (Lost Boys: The Tribe), Corey Feldman (Lost Boys: The Tribe), Bai Ling, Edgar Wright (Spaced, Hot Fuzz), Kal Penn (Harold & Kumar), Angus Sutherland (Lost Boys: The Tribe), Tad Hildebrink (Lost Boys: The Tribe, The Hills Run Red), Scott Ian of Anthrax… and many more still to be confirmed.
Not bad, huh? So make sure you come on by the Masters of the Web panel Thursday morning and say hi.
