I'd say so at this point. Maybe her band will do a concert M&G or something but I doubt it, they seem to play outdoor festivals only.

Mr. T is the most mind-boggling of anybody on this list - he had a NYCC that Stallone and Hulk Hogan were booked on, and still didn't pull the trigger. If he didn't do that one, I doubt he ever does one.

I was told Mr. T wants a laughable amount of money to appear. Carl Weathers did a couple conventions this year, just nothing on the east coast. Talia Shire is too wealthy and private to ever do one.

Brat Pack is tough, great idea though. Anthony Michael Hall is a virgil, although I read he's now in trouble for beating up his neighbor! Estevez is a nice guy, but rarely out in public anymore. Ally Sheedy is also nice, but quite private, probably not a fan of cons. Judd Nelson is insane. Ringwald is just a horrible "b" word.

For me I would say Saved by the Bell names beyond Belding and Screech, maybe Rewind Con can get them? Then you have the white whale of mine, Buffy herself Sarah Michelle Gellar!

Can you imagine how much money Mr T could have made had he done the NYCC with both Hulk Hogan and Stallone? Wow what an idiotic move on his part. Probably would have made 20 years worth of flipping burgers in a single weekend.

I'm a BIG fan of Miami Vice and would love to meet The Don as well, but who's more puzzling than him is Philip Michael Thomas, especially considering the number of MV reunions I've seen at shows.

Betty White would make MEGABUCKS if she ever did a show.

Timothy Dalton.

I understand he's introverted but he's doing some British TV show which might need promoting and I'm sure if someone dropped say 30,000-40,000 pounds on him he could make it back at one of the big English conventions.

Would love to see more of the Bonds come out. Connery is a no go, Moore is too old which really leaves just Dalton and Brosnan to start doing them. Brosnan is still too famous right now so fingers crossed for Dalton.

Thomas is the last I need from the cast! I wish he would do something.

Suzanne Somers would be big business too.

Dalton I think is tough because he probably doesn't need the money, and he likely doesn't feel "dignified" by them. Brosnan no shot, very wealthy, not fond of the public. Daniel Craig is pretty rotten.

Somers would be great! But i seriously doubt she would lower herself to doing cons. It's not like she needs the money seeing as how she made millions off of her Thigh Master thing! LOL

Not saying she won't do them, but i won't hold my breath...

Still hoping for the lower level names from The Office to get booked somewhere. Their paying gigs aren't rushing in. Still need Angela Kinsey & Leslie David Baker. Need more graphs from Phyllis Smith & Paul Liberstein too. Can't image a small reunion wouldn't do well for someone.

Too wealthy/doesn't need money/
Because as we all know, Stallone, Weaver, MJF, Hemsworth, Evans, Hiddleston, Stan Lee, etc are all paupers.
