Some great names in there - wasn't Seagal booked for Chiller once, then cancelled?

Also I'd love for conventions to get castmembers from the Jurassic Park movies (Sam Neill, Ariana Richards, Joseph Mazzello, etc..)

Seagal was get-able when he still toured with his blues band. He lives in Russia now. Sam Neill doesn't seem to leave Australia much.

Looked it up online - Seagal was indeed booked for the spring 2006 Chiller, and cancelled the Friday of the show due to the weather in NJ...rain.
:jagwtfb:

What is it about people with the last name Seagal taking con bookings they have no intention of honoring? :lol:

Not sure if anyone else here will remember this great '90's show, but I'm surprised the cast of Eerie, Indiana haven't done shows.

And if you've never heard of it, track it down and check it out. Great stuff :like:

Oh, Lou has done cons but only a few so far. Says he'd love to attend more.

I skipped Lou at Alamo City in 2014. He did one in McAllen and one WW too.

I was talking with a friend the other night, and a name we were talking about fits this discussion - Alyssa Milano. Between Charmed (especially with most of the rest of the cast having done cons), Who's the Boss and Commando - and the fact that she was a prime crush for a ton of dudes who are 35-45 now - you'd think she'd do really good business across a few different demographics.

Milano does a lot of comic book store signings though. The problem again is there are very few handlers willing to bring names who weren't in Marvel, DC, or big franchise Sci-Fi films/TV to conventions. Lance from OC is one of the few, as well as one of the best. That's why I always thank him in person for bringing the guests he does.
