Conan O’Brien is once again returning to San Diego Comic-Con with 4 tapings (Wed/Thurs/Fri/Sat) with the shows airing Wednesday/Thursday/Saturday, and Sunday of Comic-Con (July 20th, 21st, 23rd and 24th) from the Spreckels theater in Downtown San Diego. H/T to SDCCBlog.
Today they announced the guest lineups, and once again they are some big names.
Wednesday: From “Silicon Valley” on HBO, Thomas Middleditch, Kumail Nanjiani, Zach Woods, and Martin Starr
Thursday: The weird one himself, “Weird Al” Yankovic (who is in San Diego for a concert later that night, tickets are still available here).
Friday: From HBO’s blockbuster hit “Game of Thrones” stars John Bradley, Liam Cunningham, Nathalie Emmanuel, Conleth Hill, Faye Marsay, Kristian Nairn, Iwan Rheon and Isaac Hempstead Wright, as well as executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will all appear. (This show will air on Sunday night, not Friday)
Saturday: Most of the cast from DC’s Suicide Squad movie will be on stage. Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Cara Delevingne, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Karen Fukuhara, Jay Hernandez, and Adam Beach are all set to appear.
In addition, Funko once again made 4 different Funko Pop! figures just for Conan. This year they are Superman, Stormtrooper, Ghostbuster and a Suicide Squad Joker. From Funko’s press release they will be given away to audience members following each San Diego show, as well as directly to Comic-Con attendees each morning. Supplies are limited, and details will be posted on the Comic-Con website. The figures will not be available at the Funko booth. No further details on how/where they will be given away at Comic-Con, but it will probably be at the TBS booth (#3629)
