“Con Man centres on the post-show life of Wray Nerely (Alan Tudyk) the co-star of “Spectrum,” a sci-fi series, which was cancelled before its time and went on to become a cult classic beloved by fans. Wray’s good friend, Jack Moore (Nathan Fillion) starred as the series Captain and has gone on to become a major celebrity, while Wray (Tudyk) hasn’t found his desired level of stardom. Wray is the begrudging guest of sci-fi conventions, comic book store appearances, and different pop culture events; however, everything is not as it seems from the outside. The series will explore these events and all the weird and crazy things that happen to them along the way.
Con Man also features a plethora of Sci-Fi’s biggest personalities including: Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica), Amy Acker (Person of Interest), Gina Torres (Firefly, Suits), Sean Maher (Firelfly, Eastsiders), Felicia Day (Buffy The Vampire Slayer), Seth Green (Family Guy/Austin Powers), Mindy Sterling (Austin Powers), Jewel Staite, (Firefly), Summer Glau (Firefly, Terminator: SCC), Sean Astin (Lord of The Rings), James Gunn and Joss Whedon.” (Vimeo)
Con Man (aka Convention Man) looks awesome. It’s very much a play on Alan Tudyk’s life after “Firefly” (which you should totally watch if you haven’t already), but this centres on the post-show life of the co-star on the fictional show “Spectrum”. There are a whole host of sci-fi actors in the film (a few of which are listed above), and it’s a fun little game to spot ones you recognise, and from which show you recognise them in.
“She looks just like that hot hot cylon. No, the other one. The other one. The other one. The other one. That’s a dude.” Poor Tricia!
I’m really looking forward to this. Onwards!
