I took a look on the site and it looks interesting!

Billy Dee Williams, Klaatu, Droopy Mccool, Gammorean Guard will be present.

Also Sherilyn Fenn which we missed on the FACTS event in Ghent (Belgium) last year due to cancellation.

While watching the guest list on Motor City Comic Con, I read something interesting.

It was Billy Dee Willam's own son who played Klaatu!!

Did you know that?

From: http://www.motorcitycomiccon.com

Corey Dee Williams is the son of Hollywood icon Billy Dee Williams (a.k.a. Lando Calrissian from the original Star Wars trilogy). As most fans know Billy Dee Williams has an exclusive relationship with Coolwaters Productions LLC and it was this relationship that brought Corey to us! Corey was actually his Dad’s stand-in on Return of the Jedi! It was during his time on set that he was offered the role of KLAATU, an un-credited role…. Until now! But how cool is it that Billy Dee’s son was his actual stand-in!? Spending a few weeks on set and having your Dad respected by the crew was a sure fire way for Corey to be asked to don the costume of this odd green creature. In then end his scenes were very short BUT he left the set of RETURN OF THE JEDI with an amazing story to tell and also the awesome honor of becoming an action figure! Corey has worked on a few other films, but acting was not his passion. Corey is now a fitness and lifestyle coach who has trained famous people and everyday people like you and me.

Here are some pics, I found on the Internet:

If you do go. Don't ask Corey to autograph a MOC Klaatu. The world will crumble and explode if you do. Hellfire will rain down. Dogs will be friends with cats. And mom will stop baking apple pies. Wink

This convention used to be twice a year and is held a decent sized EXPO center. I met Billy Dee there about 3 years ago and was able to watch someone ask him to sign a Colt 45 can. It was epic! 2 years ago I met Carry Fisher. We were advised not to talk to her and not to ask her to sign anything Princess Leia cause she would not.

I have an issue with statements like that at conventions. If an actor doesn't want to be spoken to or sign an item, don't go to a convention. Boris Karloff said it best. Being typecast is a good thing. It means you did something people remember.

I agree. The only reason she's famous is because of Star Wars and without that she'd be just a crazy lady...
