Via NerdistAlan Tudik and Nathan Fillion announced some of the actors who will join their upcoming Indiegogo-funded web series: Battlestar Galactica’s Tricia Helfer and Michael Trucco, The Walking Dead’s Emily Kinney, Terminator 2: Judgement Day’s Robert Patrick, Austin Powers’ Mindy Sterling, Uncharted’s Nolan North, and Supernatural’s Samantha Smith are among the first actors confirmed for the cast of Con Man.

If you missed their first announcement, Sean Maher, Gina Torres, Seth Green, Felicia Day, Amy Acker and director James Gunn are all set to guest star.

Nerdist reports Tricia Helfer and Michael Trucco are among seven new stars joining the cast of Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk’s upcoming Indiegogo web series Con Man:

If you like things that are completely friggin’ awesome then there’s a good chance you’re a fan of at least one of the seven (!) new actors who are joining the mega-talented Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion’s Con Man. We recently showcased the first teaser for the Indiegogo-funded web series, a satirical look at the science-fiction convention scene. It features Tudyk as actor Wray Nerely, best known for playing the pilot in a fictional TV series Spectrum, co-starring Fillion’s Jack Moore (the only member of the cast to become an A-lister) as Nerely’s captain. Tudyk, who’s also writing and directing, and Fillion, who’s also producing, based the series on their own experiences in the wake of their fondly remembered Firefly's cancellation. And they got a TON of their friends and colleagues to join the project, including fellow Firefly stars Sean Maher and Gina Torres, other Whedonverse alumni like Seth Green, Felicia Day, and Amy Acker, and Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn.

Now, we’ve received word that Con Man has enlisted the services of Battlestar Galactica's Tricia Helfer and Michael Trucco, The Walking Dead's Emily Kinney, Terminator 2: Judgement Day's Robert Patrick, Austin Powers' Mindy Sterling, Uncharted's Nolan North, and Supernatural's Samantha Smith!

Q: If Firefly had gone on longer, what is something you would’ve hoped to have gotten to do with either just Mal or the story in general?


The cry baby is an electronic device that essentially simulates the distress call of a large (usually Alliance) ship, making a fine distraction when there is a need to make an Alliance cruiser decide between chasing your ship or rescuing what they think is a big ship full of people. It is highly illegal for any of a dozen reasons.
