We featured The Sidekick as one of the five panels that should not be missed at this year’s Comic-Con, but were we right? The Sidekick follows super hero sidekick Max McCabe on a journey of self discovery after his disastrous final mission with Captain Wonder (played by a wonderfully dry Ron Livingston). Created as a way to cope with turning forty, actor-writer Rob Benedict successfully assembled a team of super-talented friends to help out with the film including Martin Starr, Lizzy Caplan, Richard Speight Jr., Jordan Peele, Jason Ritter, and Josh Meyers.
Erik Bauersfeld is the voice of Admiral Ackbar and (Bib Fortuna). For me, he provided the voice to one of my fictional heroes. For him, it was all in a days work as part of an illustrious career. Peter Hartlaub sits down with Bauersfeld for a few minutes to talk about his involvement with Star Wars, his relationships with fans, and the fact that he still hasn’t seen the original film.
