Weird Science

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.
