Saturday, May 23, the Denver Comic Con will be celebrating 30 years of brains, beauty, bikers, and Boingo (Oingo Boingo, that is) as the cast of John Hughes’s iconic coming-of-age film that’s more ’80s than Mary Lou Retton playing Pac-Man with Mr. T hits the stage. Slated to appear are Anthony Michael Hall (“Gary Wallace”), Ilan Mitchell-Smith (“Wyatt Donnelly”), and Kelly LeBrock (“Lisa”), along with other as yet unannounced guests, including some “surprise guests” (I’m calling it now: Robert Downey Jr. will walk onto the stage with a bra on his head. Hey, I can dream.)
GeekDad Highlight: Ilan Mitchell-Smith retired from acting (except for occasional voice work), has two kids and a Ph.D. in Medieval Studies, is a Professor of Medieval Literature, writes about D&D, and is a contributor at Talk Wargaming. Now that is some GeekDad cred.
