Scott BakulaOkay, not really, and I have to admit that I haven’t been following Chuck since the middle of last season, but it doesn’t change the fact that I’m super excited to find out that Scott Bakula has been added to the roster of guests at Wizard World Comic Con this April 14th to the 16th at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (yay! new venue!).

Scott will be joining Jeri Ryan, Amy Acker (FRED!), Sean Maher, Paul Wesley (at least he doesn’t sparkle) and a slew of others at this years Comic Con.

Keep your eye on the Wizard World Comic Con site for more announcements and schedule of events.

Guess I better get off my butt and get caught up on the last season and a half of Chuck.

And I still think Chuck’s dad is alive!

Amy Acker

Woot!

Whedon Fest has updated their guest list for their inaugural convention, October 1st – 3rd at the Sheraton Toronto Airport Hotel!

The beautiful and talented Amy Acker, aka Fred/Illyria from Angel, and Dr. Saunders/Whiskey from Dollhouse and lately Rachel Conroy of Happy Town will be making her first visit to Canada and will be joining fellow guest Nicholas Brendon.

I’m chuffed. Can you tell?

In other Whedon Fest News, they have updated their schedule of events to add Geek Off Tournaments,

We will be running a number of Geek-Off trivia contests over the weekend to test your knowledge of Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Serenity, Dollhouse and Dr. Horrible. After preliminary rounds there will be our Ultimate Geek-Off with finalists. We have a ton of cool prizes to give away and the title of “Ultimate Whedon Geek.” If you’re interested in participating in this contest (and aren’t afraid of being up on stage!) you will be able to register your name on Friday when you pick up your badges. Contestants will be selected randomly from these entries.

a Dessert Party,

We will be holding a special meet and greet dessert party on Friday night, featuring a chocolate fountain, truffles, pastries and more! A perfect way to indulge and chat up our special guests!

and a live charity auction in support of the SickKids Foundation:

On Saturday October 2, 2010 a live auction will be held at WhedonFest in support of SickKids Foundation. The funds from our auction will support research, education and care at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) and will help many children around the world. There will be a ton of great items, so please keep checking back as we update with what’s up for auction and how you can help SickKids Foundation.

among other events. Get more information on the Whedon Fest website.

This is really shaping up to be a great con. I’m really looking forward to attending. Still no word as to volunteer opportunities as of yet, but Evelina of Starry Nights Events told me that they will be needing stewards to help with the main room and people for the autograph/photograph lines and will be looking to fill these roles closer to the event. So, if you are interested in volunteering, contact Starry Nights using the Contact form on the website.

More updates to come!

This is the first event Starry Night will be putting on, so I hope it goes well for them. No word yet as to whether they’ll need volunteers and they are still updating their events list but I’m going to keep an eye on the event and keep you updated.
