This is no April Fool’s joke. Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion’s upcoming web series, Con Man, just added stellar and beloved science-fiction cast members to their roster.
From Battlestar Galactica, Tricia Helfer (Six) and Michael Trucco (Sam Anders) join Con Man. I think we can all safely assume that Trucco won’t be breaking our hearts this time around. We hope.
While Emily Kinney may not have had the best exit on The Walking Dead, she’s certainly been doing well for herself since then. She will appear on The Flash soon as the Bug-Eyed Bandit and now Con Man.
Robert Patrick, from Terminator 2 and The X-Files, also joined the cast.
These new cast members are in addition to the previously signed members, including Samantha Smith (Supernatural), Nolan North (Uncharted 2), and Mindy Sterling (The Legend of Korra and Austin Powers). Not to mention, of course, Firefly alums Gina Torres and Sean Maher, as well as Amy Acker, Felicia Day, James Gunn, and Seth Green.
The Indiegogo campaign for the project has ten days left and already reached $2,494,564. It’s especially amazing when you think about the fact that Tudyk and Fillion’s initial goal was $425,000.
Tudyk and Fillion will play characters who used to be on a popular science-fiction show called Spectrum. While Fillion’s character has gone on to become a big Hollywood star, Tudyk’s character is only remembered for his role on the show and often goes to science fiction conventions.
There’s no news about who these beloved stars will play but as we get more information, we’ll be sure to let you know! Filming is set to begin in June.
