Conan O’Brien returns to San Diego Comic-Con with an all-star lineup of guests this year for his Wednesday-Saturday tapings. So who will you be seeing during the tapings?
This year’s line-up includes the casts of Supernatural and Bright on Wednesday, the cast of Game of Thrones on Friday, and stars from The LEGO Ninjago Movie on Saturday. As for Thursday? That’s “a surprise film cast to be announced”, which surely means it’s something from 20th Century Fox. Kingsman: The Golden Circle seems the most likely.
The following is the schedule for the week’s episodes and the guests who have been slated so far:
Wednesday, July 19
Stars from Bright: Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace, Edgar Ramirez and Lucy Fry.
Stars from Supernatural: Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles
Great news for fans of Supernatural: Stars Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki have been added the lineup for Entertainment Weekly’s PopFest, where they’ll participate in a joint Q&A (which will include fan questions) on Saturday, Oct. 29 .
Ackles and Padalecki join an already stacked roster of talent for PopFest, including Late Late Show host James Corden, live performances from music superstars Nick Jonas and Janelle Monae, discussions with Oscar-winning actress and director Jodie Foster, and Emmy-winning showrunner Ryan Murphy and friends. Attendees will also have the chance to check out first-look footage and special guests from The Dark Tower, a live taping of Anna Faris’s podcast, Anna Faris Is Unqualified, a reunion with the cast of Happy Endings (where the stars will perform a never-before-seen episode), a conversation with Outlander author Diana Gabaldon, the cast of The CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend performing their musical mashups live, a live table read from the cast of Bob’s Burgers, and a conversation between husband-and-wife YA superstars Ransom Riggs (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children) and Tahareh Mafi (Shatter Me). The weekend will conclude with a 20th anniversary Scream celebration including a Wes Craven tribute, followed by an outdoor screening of the film. Additional programming will be announced in the coming weeks.
The two-day event will be held on Oct. 29 and Oct. 30 in downtown Los Angeles at The Reef. Tickets are available to the general public at http://ewpopfest.com/.
