Okay, the girls from Heroes I understand. Val Kilmer raises my eyebrows a bit -- but I get it.
But Oscar winner Richard Dreyfuss?!
Is it a sign of the recession? Is he just not getting the gigs he used to? Is he doing it for Roy Scheider?
Look, there is no shame at appearing at a comic book convention. If anything, the Dreyfuss appearance tells me that these comic cons are changing, are become more like general pop-culture festivals and less comic book-oriented. This was surely evident at the last New York Comic Con.
But Richard "The Goodbye Girl" Dreyfuss? Really? At Big Apple Con?
I will be hanging out with Captain Lou Albano, personally.
