When I think action, I think… Brian Austin Green

So last Sunday we drove up to San Francisco to check out WonderCon 2008. I’d never been to a comic book convention, nor am I a huge comic book fan, but you know, it seemed like fun, and I wanted to see all the geeks in costume. I uploaded some pictures to my flickr account. Here’s a sneak peek:

Darth Maul & Stormtrooper

We walked around a lot to check out the wares. Saw lots of costumes. And sat in on some panels/movie trailers. I think my favorite moment was Brian Austin Green and Josh Friedman on FOX’s Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles panel. They were talking about the casting of Brian on a sci-fi action series and he said, well, it’s the title of my blog post. He had a really awesome perspective on his life and his status in Hollywood and it was refreshing to see an actor with such humility and a sense of humor about the whole profession.

Josh Friedman is the executive producer and primary writer for the show. And he totally reminded us both of Kevin Smith – they have a similar look and are both tremendously funny. He told a story about getting a Terminator head sent to him in a box, ala the movie Seven, and his 3 year old son reached into the box and grabbed it and said “Terminator! Let’s go home!” Hilarious.

Anyway, enjoy the photos!

  1. The only “con” I’ve ever been to was that one where we filmed scenes for Hooch & Daddy-O. What a hoot! Those folks are damn serious about their fandom, aren’t they? My scene in the movie was filmed there in the parking lot.
