Two More Celebrity Guests Announced For Toronto Comic Con 2015
The organizers for Toronto Comic Con have announced two more celebrity guests expected to attend the convention in 2015. Both guests are high profile enough to be known to a wide selection of fans. Morena Baccarin is perhaps better known for having played a lot of science fiction roles in lesser seen series, many of which have a level of cult following among their fans. She has been in Firefly and the short-lived revival of V as well as playing in Homeland. She is presently a member of the cast for Gotham. Fans were disappointed in 2014 when a scheduling change necessitated her canceling attendance to the convention at the last minute.
J. August Richards likely has more immediate recognizability, after playing Deathlok on the first season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Although the story line in the first season was often panned for its lack of direction, by the time that the series got on firmer footing the character was a major player in the conspiracy which took down S.H.I.E.L.D. Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe who stuck it out through the first season will recognize him for his gradual change into Deathlok, and the role he had in the other characters’ development. He is also known for a supporting role in the television series Angel.
