Barbara Eden, Larry Hagman and Elvira: Fan Expo 2011 Preview

by Aaron Broverman, posted Aug 22nd 2011 2:10PM

More comics, more anime and more sci-fi -- what more could a genre geek ask for? Last year's wraparound lineups and record-setting crowds finally persuaded the people behind Toronto's annual genre convention -- Fan Expo --to add an extra day. It now starts on Thursday instead of Friday, and runs from August 25 to 28.

Good thing too, since there are more high-profile guests and "one time only" events than there have ever been. Whether you're a fan of comics, sci-fi, horror, anime, gaming or all of the above, there is bound to be something for everyone.

Comic fans are in for some big announcements from Marvel and DC, and horror fans will get an exclusive screening of 'Near Dark,' the cult horror film from Best Director Oscar winner Kathryn Bigelow. Plus, William Shatner returns to the big screen with documentary 'The Captains,' which features interviews with everyone who has ever piloted the Starship Enterprise.

This is just a taste of what's to come at this year's Fan Expo. For the true highlights of this year's convention, hit the jump.

  • Though it's still not confirmed, the chances of Whoopie Goldberg being Rosie's replacement on The View are looking better and better.
  • Are people getting sick of everything to do with American Idol? Kelly Clarkson canceled her summer tour due to poor ticket sales.

Elvira reality show finally gets a premiere date

elviraIt was more than a year ago that Bob told you about a reality show that Elvira, a.k.a. "Mistress of the Dark", would be starring in. Fox just gave it the green light and ordered 13 episodes, to begin airing on October 13th, with the live finale on Halloween night.

The idea behind this series is that the real Elvira (Cassandra Peterson) is searching for a double-- someone who can make public appearances and represent her. She's still in pretty high demand, with her manager claiming that she gets requests for "hundreds" of public appearances each year. Good for her, I say, for successfully sustaining the same character since the 1980s.

All Elvira wanna-bes can audition for the show on July 13th at the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California.

Who wants to be a mistress of the dark?

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 17th 2006 3:03PM
ElviraElvira (aka Cassandra Peterson) is teaming up with the producers of American Idol and The Weakest Link to create a reality show where they will find someone to take over the role of Elvira on TV, in movies, and personal appearances.

This could actually be great. Can you imagine the people showing up for auditions? People dressed like Elvira and Dracula and Frankenstein and superheroes and zombies. People who scare you, and you're not quite sure what they'll do. Actually, it sounds a lot like the American Idol auditions.
