The Voice of Jack Skellington Is Coming To Shreveport
Geek'd Con, Shreveport's biggest comic and pop culture convention, is back for 2018. August 17-19 at the Shreveport Convention Center in Downtown Shreveport.
For the last few years, Geek'd Con has been Shreveport's version of a "comic con", bringing in guests like Elvira Mistress of the Dark (Cassandra Peterson), Lou Ferrigno, Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew), Tara Reid, comic book legend George Perez, Joey Fatone, Billy West, and a ton of other huge geek celebrities.
We already know that this year's Geek'd Con will feature the original TV Flash, John Wesley Shipp, along with child star Jonathan Lipnicki, and voice actor Dana Snyder. Now we know who the next person joining him on the lineup is.
Chris Sarandon is coming to Shreveport this summer!
Chris has one of the deepest "geek" resumes in Hollywood.
As the voice of Jack Skellington from Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas, Chris has been able to achieve iconic status. His time in the role has continued to this day, through shorts and video games like the Kingdom Hearts series.
Nightmare will be celebrating it's 25th anniversary this year, so this is going to be a huge deal.
But let us not forget his comedic contributions as Prince Humperdinck in The Princess Bride, another legendary character.
Chris is also an icon in horror movies, as both Jerry Dandridge in Fright Night, and Detective Mike Norris in Child's Play. Giving him a chance to be both the "bad guy" and "good guy" (all puns intended).
He was also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in Dog Day Afternoon.
We're EXTREMELY EXCITED for this one, and we hope you are too!
