Comic Con HQ has a holiday gift for ComicBook.com readers: an exclusive scene from this week's episode of their new webseries Kings of Con.
In the clip, Rob goes into a frantic tailspin when he accidentally calls 911 in what starts as an innocent mistake and escalates into something more.
The X-Files regular Mitch Pileggi also appears.
Thanks to their pivotal roles on the hit CW show Supernatural, Richard Speight, Jr. (Band of Brothers, Justified, etc.) and Rob Benedict (Felicity, Waiting, etc.) have become regulars on the fan convention circuit. Now, after years of appearing at airport hotels across the country and abroad, they've created Kings of Con, a single camera comedy inspired by their real experiences that goes beyond the autograph lines and photo ops to what really makes the cons crazy and unpredictable - the actors paid to be there.
It's Broad City meets Curb Your Enthusiasm with the comedic honesty of Louie as Richard and Rob play caricatures of themselves cavorting through the con world: Rich, thrice divorced former actor whose love of the game is fueled by the faux fame he experiences at the hands of a gaggle fans who still think he matters, and Rob, a divorcee-to-be who is back on the circuit to cover the costs of his failed marriage and stalled career.
Scripted content mixed with improv, and Rich and Rob's razor sharp interplay all fuel the spirit of the show, backed by supporting / guest cast of other actors from across the Hollywood spectrum Rob and Richard have come to know over the course of their 20 year careers.0comments
