Emerald City Comicon Adds Michael Biehn as Their 3rd Celebrity for 2013

Comments Off on Emerald City Comicon Adds Michael Biehn as Their 3rd Celebrity for 2013

Michael Biehn Aliens

Press Release:

Aliens to invade Seattle! Come to Comicon if you want to live!

Star of Terminator, Tombstone and Aliens aims his sights on Seattle!

Seattle, WA – The versatile and recognizable Michael Biehn (“Kyle Reese” The Terminator 1 & T2: Judgment Day, ”Johnny Ringo” from Tombstone, ”Hicks” from Aliens) is the third celebrity guest announced for the upcoming 12th annual Emerald City Comicon taking place on March 28th – 30th, 2014 at the Washington State Convention Center. He will be appearing all three days!

Michael Biehn is one of those prolific actors and familiar faces that makes it impossible not to have enjoyed at least one of his films. He is arguably best known to mainstream audiences as bad guy “Johnny Ringo” in the cult western classic Tombstone which co-starred Val Kilmer and Kurt Russell. But fans of Sci-Fi fare will know him as both futuristic hero “Kyle Reese” in The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day as well as space marine “Cpl. Hicks” in Aliens, all three films by director James Cameron. Biehn’s partnership with Cameron would continue in the 1989 underwater adventure The Abyss.

Biehn has played a Navy Seal on the big screen on no less than three occasions: the aforementioned The Abyss, the 1990 film Navy Seals co-starring Charlie Sheen and the Michael Bay action romp The Rock starring Sean Connery and Nicolas Cage.

Getting his start on television shows such as James at 16, Logan’s Run and Family, Biehn ended up with a recurring role on the critically acclaimed cop drama Hill Street Blues as “Officer Randall Buttman”. He quickly found work on the big screen in the 1983 military piece The Lords of Discipline. He also has an uncredited role as the athlete “Mike” in the 1978 musical Grease starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John.

In recent years, Biehn has returned to television with appearances on Criminal Minds, Adventure Inc., The Magnificent Seven and Law and Order: Criminal Intent, while continuing to tackle roles on the big screen in films including K2, Quentin Tarrantino’s Planet Terror, and Megiddo: The Omega Code 2. He can next be seen in the upcoming cable series 24 Hour Rental, about a group of petty criminals that operate a shady video rental store.

Biehn was born in Anniston, Alabama. After moving Arizona as youth, he took part in the high school drama program at Lake Havasu City before eventually studying acting at the University of Arizona.

Also attending with Biehn will be his wife, actress Jennifer Blanc, best known for her work  as “Kendra Maibaum” on the cult television series by James Cameron Dark Angel starring Jessica Alba and as “Kate Bishop” on the FOX drama Party of Five. Other credits include Touched By Angel, Veronica Mars, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Both Biehn and Blanc appear together in the independent 2011 film The VIctim, which they also produced.

Biehn and Blanc join previously announced celebrity guests Nichelle Nichols (“Lt. Uhura” from Star Trek) and Richard Dean Anderson (star of MacGyver, Stargate SG-1). Roughly two dozen celebrity guests in all will be announced for this spectacular weekend, in addition to hundreds of popular comic guests, exhibitors and several exciting new offerings and surprises.

Coming off of a sold out 2013 show, tickets for Emerald City Comicon 2014 will be in high demand when they go on sale September 1st, 2014!

With a record turnout of 64,000 patrons in 2013, Emerald City Comicon consistently ranks as one of the Top 10 most attended conventions of its kind in North America as well as increasingly becoming the favorite show among many fans, comic guests, journalists and celebrities.

Established in 2003, Emerald City Comicon, while renowned worldwide for its growing popularity, continues to remain the Northwest’s premier comic book and pop culture convention founded in the belief that investing in local artists, companies and individuals is a lasting recipe for success and longevity.

Look for regular press releases containing all of the latest news leading up to the show in March 2014. For more information, please visit ECCC’s website at www.emeraldcitycomicon.com
