Comic Con Seoul has officially announced its second Hollywood guest for the upcoming pop culture convention – Michael Rooker.
They are still working out the details of Rooker’s stay in Seoul, but he will do a panel on the Amazing Stage and be available for photos and autographs for Star Pass holders. This is his first time in Seoul.
Rooker is know for playing such characters as Merle Dixon in “The Walking Dead” and Yondu Udonta in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy series. He made his film debut in 1986 playing the title role in “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer” and has since appeared in many films including “Mississippi Burning,” “Days of Thunder,” “JFK,” “Tombstone,” “The 6th Day,” and “Jumper.”
Recently, he was nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the Saturn Awards for his portrayal of Yondu.
Last month, Comic Con Seoul announced that Ezra Miller, known for his roles as Barry Allen/The Flash in “Justice League” and Credence Barebone in “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” and its upcoming sequel “The Crimes of Grindelwald,” would be the first Hollywood guest. He got his start in 2008 in “Afterschool” and since then has appeared in “We Need to Talk About Kevin,” “Californication,” “Royal Pains,” “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” and “Madame Bovary.”
