Stars Sean Patrick Flanery (The Boondock Saints), Michael Rooker (The Walking Dead) , Lou Ferrigno (The Incredible Hulk)  and Jason David Frank (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) helped to kick off the 2015 Wizard World Las Vegas Comic Con today at the High Roller observation wheel.  Members of the press and contest winners from Las Vegas Weekly magazine mingled with the celebs before embarking on the 40 minute ride around the wheel, which has arguably the best views in Las Vegas.

Lou Ferrigno said that he liked coming to conventions because when he was growing up, there were no conventions – they didn’t exist.  Fans didn’t have a chance to meet their favorite stars and get a photo or an autograph with them.  Now, conventions give the fans the chance to be able to meet their idols.

 

Sean Patrick Flanery  summed up how many of the stars feel about conventions in the video below:

Jason David Frank spoke a bit about ConTv, which will allow fans to view panels and other cons that they might be unable to attend. This will give fans the feeling of being in the panels and on the floor at the cons that they can’t be at.

The High Roller event was a great start to a weekend of great panels, autograph session and photos at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
