The layers of meta are thick with Con Man. Alan Tudyk created and stars in the series about an actor famous for starring in a brilliant-but-cancelled sci-fi classic, with Nathan Fillion playing his good friend and former co-star. The show follows said actor as he tours geeky conventions — you know, not unlike the one Tudyk and Fillion stopped by this year to tease season 2 of Con Man.
It should come as no surprise that former Firefly stars Tudyk and Fillion got the warmest of receptions in Hall H at this year’s Comic-Con, where they offered audiences a glimpse of not just Con Man season 2 but Con Man: The Game and the Spectrum comic book series (inspired by the show-within-a-show that Fillion and Tudyk’s characters used to star in).

When Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion go to a convention, they’re basically Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. Which is to say, they’re extremely famous and well-known, especially in that setting. They’re now using their experience with cons to transform the odd world of conventions into a web series. It’s called Con Man and will be written, directed and star Tudyk with Fillion co-starring as well as producing. Already they have their Firefly cast members Sean Maher and Gina Torres along for the ride as well as James Gunn, Seth Green, Felicia Day and Amy Acker, just to start.
