      Lucky! Have fun!
      I’m very interested to see what he, Nicole, and Lyndie have to say about the upcoming season of “Sleepy Hollow”. I hope the changes made to the show are boding well for them.

    • Lucky says:

      He’s really really nice and funny and of course handsome in person. You’ll love him.

    I miss the days when people actually realised that all but maybe one of these shows don’t belong at Comic Con. Oh well…

      People get the origins co COMIC con but it is fun every year to heard people still whining about it.

  3. AKA says:

    If Leah Michele isn’t killed off in some comical and degrading way in the first episode of Scream Queens I’m not watching beyond that.

    I can’t believe that Stark Sands’ biggest past TV role wasn’t referenced – NYC 22 – he was so good as one of the rookie cops. I was so upset when that show was cancelled.

    At least change the name as this abortion of hollywood self promotion no longer bears any resemblance to what it was originally established for.
