Its time again for the SDCC interview spectacular! This year, we steal a few minutes to talk to Jane Espenson & Brad Bell (Husbands), Marissa Meyer (author: Cinder, Scarlet, Cress), Oliver Vaquer (VA: Robert Lutece, BioShock Infinite), and Lizzy Caplan, Rob Benedict, Josh Meyers, & Jordan Peele (cast of The Sidekick). [Special thanks to Peter Bogolub for the new musical bumpers!]
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.
Every year that I go to Comic-Con I do my best to check out some panels and events that aren’t massive studio funded spectacles. Here some of the panels happening next week that you should add to your list.
