Salt Lake Comic Con announces first batch of celebrity guests for September event

SALT LAKE CITY — Flanked by Imperial stormtroopers and accompanied by the steady, electronic breathing of Darth Vader, Salt Lake Comic Con organizers Tuesday announced the first batch of geek- and pop-culture guests for September’s event.

Actors Ernie Hudson (“Ghostbusters”), Cary Elwes (“The Princess Bride”), Bruce Campbell (“Army of Darkness”), John Barrowman (“Doctor Who” and “Torchwood”) and Sam Witwer (“Being Human”) will join the previously announced Christopher Lloyd (“Back to the Future”) in Salt Lake City for the Sept. 4-6 celebration of all things geeky.

“With a lineup like that, it would be really easy to say that’s enough, that we don’t need to do anymore,” said Dan Farr, co-founder of Salt Lake Comic Con.

But that’s only six of roughly 200, Farr said.

“We’ll have a lot more great people that we’ll be announcing as we get closer to the event,” he said.

“The world could not become a brighter place when I got that (part),” joked Witwer, of the 2001 role which came after an entire year of unsuccessful auditions.

Those two lines became the start of a successful TV and movie acting career for the 36-year-old Glenview native, who most recently starred as Aidan Waite, a vampire trying to lead a normal life on Syfy’s “Being Human.” …
