So I've been making plans to attend WizardWorld's Philadelphia Comic Con at the end of May. I've been once before (got my picture with Chris Hemsworth of Thor fame!) and was planning this time around because of the large number of Firefly/Serenity actors going this year (going to get my picture with Nathan Fillion!).
Looking over the guest list again, I realized they'd added someone while I wasn't looking. They added Shawn Ashmore (and his twin brother Aaron too), who I know best as Jake from the Animorphs TV show: http://www.wizardworld.com/shawnashmore.html
We can all agree the show was bad, hilariously bad (in fact, the idea of getting to meet Jake means I'll finally watch all the episodes for the first time in years and post my reactions here, something I've been wanting to do for a while but this will be the push that makes me actually do it :P). But even so, even knowing that it was terribly, I still picture those actors whenever I'm thinking of the Animorphs. Whenever I'm watching the original X-Men movies, I see him as Bobby/Iceman but I still think of him as Jake.
So I think I'm going to gather up my courage, walk up to him at the convention, and tell him that he will always be Jake from Animorphs and I thought he was awesome. Dare me to do it? Or, better yet, anyone else want to go to Philly and tell him yourself? :D
