1. Let’s talk Shatner. Captain Kirk will only be in attendance on Saturday, for a one-hour Q&A on everything: the new and old Star Trek, his CBS TV pilot Sh*t My Dad Says. You could probably even ask him about Priceline, since William seems as sassy as ever at 79.
Saturday, March 5, 3-4pm, Room 4A.
2. Seattle native Rainn Wilson and director James Gunn ( Slither ) will also be around on Saturday for a chat about their new dark comedy Super (out here April 15). Wilson stars as a sad-sack who assumes a superhero identity—Crimson Bolt—to rescue his wife (Liv Tyler), who’s been “willingly snatched” by a drug dealer (Kevin Bacon). Ellen Page plays the Bolt’s sidekick, Boltie, which doesn’t sound too far off from her tag-along role in Inception. Typecast!
Saturday, March 5, 7pm, Room 4C3-4.
3. It’s at Washington State Convention Center from March 4-6, which means you can do some quality people-watching from the Cheesecake Factory across the street at 700 Pike.
