Scott Bakula, Jeri Ryan, Dean Stockwell, & More At Toronto Comic-Con In April

Scott Bakula, Jeri Ryan, & Dean Stockwell At Toronto Comic-Con In April

We've said it before and we'll say it again, Wizard World puts on a fantastic convention. With the likes of Scott Bakula & Jeri Ryan, it seems that their Toronto Comic-con will be no exception. That's right kiddies, April 14th-15th at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, both Seven of Nine & Captain Archer will be in attendance. As an added bonus, for all you Quantum Leap fans, Dean Stockwell will also be in attendance. We're huge QL fans (not mention BSG) and would make the trip in a heartbeat to see Sam Beckett/Jonathan Archer & Al/Cylon John Cavil/Colonel Grat (bet you thought we forgot about Dean's appearance on Enterprise); oh and Seven of Nine too. Plus there are plenty of other stars, from various scifi series, that will be in attendance as well. Check the full press release below for all the details.


In a career which began as a standout child actor in the 1940s, Dean Stockwell has appeared in nearly 200 movies and television shows. Now after having starred in “Quantum Leap” and performed memorable roles in shows like “Battlestar Galactica” and films like MARRIED TO THE MOB, the Academy Award nominee and four-time Emmy nominee will be making his first appearance at a Wizard World show when he meets fans, signs autographs, poses for photos and takes part in a Q&A panel at Wizard World Toronto Comic Con, April 14-15 at Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC).

Stockwell will be joined at the event by Scott Bakula, the lead in “Quantum Leap,” for which Stockwell earned all four of his Emmy nods. Other popular stars scheduled to attend Toronto Comic Con include Paul Wesley, Jeri Ryan and Amy Acker along with WWE® Superstar Edge® and dozens of standout celebs and talented comic book artists and writers.

Stockwell, who will turn 76 on March 3, is one of a handful of Hollywood child stars who has gone on to on-screen success as an adult. His preteen roles included 1940s blockbusters ANCHORS AWEIGH (1945) and GENTLEMAN'S AGREEMENT (1947), followed by well-received parts in SONS AND LOVERS (1960) and LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT (1962).

After a hiatus, Stockwell resumed his film career, taking on sophisticated supporting roles, including his Oscar-nominee-worthy performance in MARRIED TO THE MOB (1988) before playing the “boss” to Bakula in “Quantum Leap” (1989-93), appearing in the sci-fi series' entire 97-episode run.
