Wizard World - Day 2

Sunday morning held the promise of a great interaction between Scott Bakula and Dean Stockwell, stars of the Wizard World Toronto Comic Con, in a Quantum Leap reunion. The two were scheduled to attend a Q&A with the fans, telling stories about the show. And it certainly did not disapoint!

A packed room was on hand for the two stars, as they talked Quantum Leap, and a little bit about Enterprise and Battlestar Galactica.

Scott talked about how he was amazed that an actor of Dean's stature would be on the show, but was glad he was.

The both joked that "Sam's" main contribution was a total of two words..."Oh Boy"! But Scott was able to turn that around on Dean by saying that he said it different every episode!!
Neither understood the ultimate ending of the show, and also left it to the audience to pick there own "best episode", but Scott was able to tell everyone that the final show was a "maybe" show, in that Donald Bellisario had to write it assuming that there may, in fact, be another season. He went through much the same with Magnum PI, in which Magnum was in a coma, and once the decision was made to bring the show back, Magnum recovered. Unfortunatley for QL fans, that was the end. The crew didn't even get a wrap party, the show just came to an end. Speaking of Magnum, there was discussion to try and get Tom Selleck in for a mirror shot, so Sam may have jumped into Magnum!!

Some of the other stars at the show included Amy Acker, who was on the show Angel,

Colin Ferguson, who stars in Eureka,

and even Simpson's illustrator Phil Ortiz, who for a small fee would do a quick drawing of whoever you want, be it live, a picture, or even a cell phone image. He had a long line of people wishing to be "simpsonized"!!

What I can only describe as some "DIY" costumes including R2D2 and Han in Carbonite!

A couple of Bat peeps;

Transformers....who are robots, but in disguise!!

Are you looking at me!??

Aliens vs Ghostbusters!

And here's some other characters at the show!
