Ottawa Pops This Weekend

It's been a weird week, and I'm tired, so I'll finish off today by reminding anyone who might be in the National Capital region this weekend to stop by the first annual Ottawa Pop Expo. The final guest list includes "from The Walking Dead there are five franchise guests, including co-creator and comic book artist Tony Moore, Lew Temple (Axel, Season 3), Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori Grimes), Scott Wilson (Hershel Greene) and Pop Expo Guest-of-Honour, Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon). Norman Reedus will also be headlining a special reunion for The Boondock Saints, the 1999 cult film with  Sean Patrick Flanery (Young Indiana Jones), and David Della Rocco.
  • Tom Felton from the Harry Potter films
  • Ernie Hudson from the Ghostbusters films
  • Julie Caitlin Brown from Babylon 5
  • Neve McIntosh, Madame Vastra from Doctor Who
  • Sylvester McCoy, the seventh incarnation of The Doctor (1987-1989) and can be seen next week in cinema’s everywhere as Radagast the Brown, in the next Hobbit Trilogy
  • Jason Momoa, from Stargate: Atlantis, Game of Thrones and Conan the Barbarian (2011)
  • Honky Tonk Man, WWF Intercontinental Championship for a record 64 weeks
  • Bret “The Hitman” Hart, former WWE champion who was voted one of the top 50 Canadians of all time on CBC’s Greatest Canadian
  • Monika Lee, one of the main cast of “heroes” in the first season of the Syfy/Space reality series Heroes of Cosplay
  • Jessica Nigri, who worked for WB Games to promote Lollipop Chainsaw (as Juliet Starling) and Suda’s Killer is Dead (as Vivienne Squall)
  • And a host of others.
I'm going almost exclusively to see if there is any difference between a Pop-Expo and a Comic-Con. I suspect there won't be, but I and the hat I will be wearing shall be roaming the convention floor all weekend none the less. [Update: read my review here.]
