“Firefly” alums Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk took to Indiegogo to fund their new web series 'Con Man,' described as “a lighthearted take on the personalities, luminaries, and characters in the sci-fi community.”
Wray Nerely (Alan Tudyk) was a co-star on Spectrum, a sci-fi series which was canceled -Too Soon- yet became a cult classic. Wray’s good friend, Jack Moore (Nathan Fillion) starred in the series and has gone on to become a major movie star. While Jack enjoys the life of an A-lister, Wray tours the sci-fi circuit as a guest of conventions, comic book stores, and lots of pop culture events. The show will feature all the weird and crazy things that happen to Wray along the way to these events.
Tudyk is writing and directing, with Fillion producing. They already have their Firefly cast members Sean Maher and Gina Torres along for the ride as well as 'Guardians of the Galaxy' director James Gunn, Seth Green, Felicia Day and Amy Acker, with more guest stars being announced throughout the campaign.
Check out Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk telling us about the campaign to get Con Man off the ground:
If you want to see Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk back on a spaceship, and hopefully Summer Glau, you can contribute to 'Con Man' , and/or get more information, on Indiegogo. The deadline is set for April 10th. You can also find me on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or Youtube
The organizers of MegaCon Florida have given Alan Tudyk permission to shoot crowd scenes at the convention. So if you're at MegaCon in Florida, you might be in the show. How awesome is that?
On a side note, I wonder if they will be filming Summer Glau at the convention. Because we don't know if she will be on the show and if she is, whether she will play herself or not. We'll see. You can also find me on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or Youtube
Alan Tudyk has revealed that the entire Firefly cast is set to appear in 'Con Man'. We already knew Sean Maher and Gina Torres would be part of the first season of Con Man and now Alan said in a recent Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) he would eventually like to see all of the other main Firefly cast members (Morena Baccarin, Adam Baldwin, Summer Glau, Jewel Staite and Ron Glass) return to the show, though many of their roles have yet to be decided.
Everybody has committed to being in Con Man. I don't want to waste their cameos. So, I'm hoping for a second season to put them all in. Right now, it's just Sean and Gina in the first season. Possibly more. The others will be Where's Waldo? type cameos.
