Devils, Queens, Drug Dealers And Cults: An Inspiring Day 2 At Comic-Con

|

If day one for us was all about Stephenie Meyer, day two was all about the boob tube. Both Kate Spencer and I spent the day getting hyped about existing and future TV favorites. Kate talked to the cast of Game of Thrones and visited the Joss Whedon and Breaking Bad panels, which she talks about in our little recap video above. I got to speak to the stars of two of the CW’s new shows: Arrow (Stephen Amell=yummmm) and mid-season show Cult. The latter stars Vampire Diaries alum Matt Davis, who isn’t giving anyone a chance to miss Alaric before he steps into a completely new character. True to its name, that one’s aiming for a cult following. Speaking of nostalgia for bygone characters, I also chatted with Vanessa Williams and Terry O’Quinn, who make the handsomest of scary power couples onscreen in ABC’s 666 Park Avenue but are perfectly charming in person. Terry was even wearing flip-flops for his interview. Not that I blame him, my own feet were killing me after a single trip around the convention center — where I peeped the scariest line for Hall H: both because it was a mile long and ’cause it was filled with zombies waiting to get into the Walking Dead panel. No way was I getting into that one at the last minute. But the first thing you learn at Comic-Con is to manage your expectations, and have fun with whatever you end up doing instead of the hottest panel of the moment — whether it’s popping into a smaller ballroom to hear about some hot new urban fantasy books or roaming the floor to admire a real working R2D2 and ogle Stan Lee for a minute. Can’t wait for Day 3!
