What do you mean - no pits . . .
How many lumps do you want?
Missed: Tron: Legacy
My schedule opened up after Freberg - so I spent some important time looking at costumed characters and looking at cool artifacts. The GI Joe costumes of previous years were mainly replaced by repeats from previous years and the new front runner - Mad Hatter. The resurgeance of the Pirate was noticable as was the lack of packs of Stormtroopers. It being such a beautiful day - I headed outside to snack and enjoy some sunshine. It was here that I ran into the Red Faction Mars Bar Eating contest. My man, Joey, was ripped off from the record by some left over carmel on his pallet. The five-minute competition was hard to watch - but Pat Bertolleti (the guy dressed in the Evel jumpsuit) did munch down over 37 Mars Bars to my disgust. Impossible. Had a chance to shake Joey's hand after the contest and found out that he was successful with the hot dog challenge the night before. Impressive. Had to leave the outdoor party to head back in for . . .
SHOWTIME PRESS. While having to initially step aside for the "big boys" from E! and such to take their video, my table of three other reporters was able to talk with the Executive Producers of Nurse Jackie and Dexter about their programs. Both were excited about the turnout and interest at Comic Con for their shows. But the highlight, maybe of the Con, was having first Michael C. Hall sit down at our table. He certainly gave out some of the same answers that I heard in other interviews but just his presence was a thrill. He was just as nice to us as any other outlet there and looked into my eyes when answering a throwaway question I asked about him working on a show that didn't involve dead bodies.
He was followed by Mary-Louise Parker. She's an actress that walked in just like she just left my TV set. She seemed very genuine and I was initially a little starstruck. But she relaxed us all and I was able to find a common point when she mentioned her four- and six-year-old children. She's a big fan of the Pixar films and she would love to be in one. Pixar, are you listening??? I saw David Duchovny walking the room but we ran out of time before he could come to our table. It's probably for the best - I certainly would have begged him to attend the Forceys in our room on Saturday night.
