Also in the mix, of over 30 celeb guests scheduled to attend is Internet sensation Chris Crocker, who captured international attention with his tearful video defending Britney Spear’s, in September 2007. The video, both on My Space and YouTube, received over four million views in two days. But, Crocker’s prior videos, mostly monologues about his life and being an openly gay Southern adolescent in “a small-minded town”, had already gained national attention. His videos combined have received 45.8 million plays on MySpace, and his vlog channel on YouTube is the 18th most viewed of all time in all categories. (infromation from Wikipedia)
Florida Supercon has also just added three new Harry Potter stars to the originally scheduled cast members, Devon Murray (Seamus Finnegan) and Natalia Tena (Nymphadora Tonks). The three new cast members are Hugh Mitchell (Colin Creavy), Danielle Tabor (Angelina Johnson), and David Decio (Hogwart’s student). James and Oliver Phelps (the Weasley Twins) will not be able to attend the event as they will be in the U.K. shooting scenes, on the set of the next Harry Potter film.
