ONE WEEK I CAN HARDLY STAAAAAND IT. But onto today’s post!
As usual, Dragon*Con has a pretty fun guest list. Here are some guests about whom I am pretty excited:
—Jamie Bamber: Hot Lee Adama goodness so say we all.
—John Barrowman: I’m watching Torchwood as we speak but I’ve been into John Barrowman for awhile because he is uber gay-rights, does musical theatre, and is incredibly handsome.
—Amber Benson: OMG remember when Tara gets shot and is all “Willow, your shirt…” and then she dies and it is terrible? It wouldn’t have been as terrible if Amber Benson hadn’t portrayed Tara so heartbreakingly well.
—Billy Boyd: Fool of a Took!
—LeVar Burton: See this post. Also, this post. Also, Kunta Kinte.
—James Callis: I always thought that the way Caprica Six pronounced “Gaius” was hilarious.
—Vinent Caso: Taste my pirate patty!
—Felicia Day: Self-explanatory.
—Michael Dorn: I really just want to ask him if he actually likes prune juice.
—Jane Espenson: She’s written for basically every show I like ever, like Star Treks TNG and DS9, Buffy, Angel, Firfly, Dollhouse, BSG, Caprica, Game of Thrones, etc. Girl power!
—Jonathan Frakes: “He’s my number one dad!”
—Kat Graham: I remember when I first saw her on The Vampire Diaries I was all “Oh wow she is so beautiful who is that girl.”
—Anthony Michael Hall: “I’m a fucking idiot because I can’t make a lamp?”
—Juliet Landau: “Miss Edith speaks out of turn. She’s a bad example and will have no cakes today.”
—Sean Maher: I know it is weird but any cool, chill actor who is out just gets so much respect from me.
—Joe Manganiello: Words cannot express how good looking this man is, for realsies.
—James Marsters: I still refuse to believe that he is not actually British, despite having heard his real accent. To me, he will always be Spike.
—Rose McGowan: Fact, I totally love Charmed I totally do.
—Steven R. McQueen: I am also so into The Vampire Diaries and so am just going to be putting them all on the list, real talk.
—Jason Momoa: “Crown! A crown for Cart King!”
—Kathy Najimy: I re-watched Sister Act last night–how great was she in that movie? Also, Hocus Pocus? She’s so good in that. “Burning rain of death” come on, y’all.
—Nichelle Nichols: I’m still holding out hope that George Takkei will make a surprise appearance with her. I thought these two were basically a matched pair!
—Amy Okuda: The Guild is great, so everyone who is on The Guild will also be on this list.
—Sandeep Parikh: See above. He also did The Legend of Neil, which is one of the funniest things I have ever seen ever.
—Robert Picardo: I have a soft spot in my heart for Voyager’s Doctor.
—Carrie Preston: I love that she’s married to Michael Emerson, what a power couple, for realsies. Her Arlene is one of my favorite parts of True Blood.
—David Prowse: So the man who walked around in the Vader suit actually does conventions, amazing.
—Patricia Quinn: The lips that launched a thousand midnight shadowcasts.
—John Rhys-Davies: “I cannot jump the distance, you’ll have to toss me.”
—J. August Richards: Gunn!!!
—Tim Russ: Tuvok!!!
—Katee Sackhoff: A million, billion girl crushes.
—Ian Somerhalder: They don’t call him Smolder-halder for no reason.
—Robin Thorsen: Duh, The Guild. Clara has some of the best lines, and she also locks her babies in a kennel. Amazing.
—Michael Trevino: Vampyr Diareeeessss.
—Paul Wesley: See above.
I’m also pretty thrilled about Adam West and Burt Ward because, hello, Batman, and also that scene where Batman runs around the docks with the bomb and he has to decide whether to throw it at nuns or at ducks. I’d throw it at the nuns myself. J/K.
Obviously I won’t get to see panels with all these lovely people, because Dragon*Con has somanythings going on at once, so one has to pick and choose. Luckily, this is a pretty good and large list, so I don’t think I can go wrong, y’know?
So which guests on the list made you go “eeeee!!!!” when they popped up on the Dragon*Con site? Let me know in the comments!

I loved all your “fool of a took!” comments. Hilarious way to tell who people are without lists and lists. Coolness.
Thanks! Trying to keep things fresh. 😉 Hope you’re doing well!
