Fine, Sarah Palin's Coming to Town. Now Can We Talk About the Guy From Tron?
I just got word that the Sci-Fi Expo at the Richardson Civic Center's done set its April 24-25 all-star line-up -- and, wow, maybe my mom can take my 6-year-old this go-round. That's because none other than Lee "Scarecrow" Stetson's on the roster -- though, sure, Bruce Boxleitner's probably on the guest list because he's in Tron and the forthcoming sequel Tron: Legacy (can ... not ... wait). Also on the roster: the great Adam Baldwin, who I plan on beating down with Full Metal Jacket questions in advance; Richard "Apollo" Hatch; Deep Roy, who you'll recognize as every single Oompa Loompa from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory; and Mira Furlan, who played Lost's long-lost Danielle Rousseau. (Wonder if she knows where Desmond's been all this time.)
Is it weird that even at this late date, I kinda hope Bruce Boxleitner's bringing the wife?
