Hellboy, Shark Fighters and a Golden Globe And Academy Award Nominee

To Attend Salt Lake Comic Con

SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Salt Lake Comic Con

(http://saltlakecomiccon.com/) announced today that Ron Perlman, Ian

Ziering and Eric Roberts will join an already robust guest list at

Salt Lake Comic Con 2014 on September 4-6, 2014.

Perlman is a TV, film and voice actor best known for his roles as

Vincent in the TV series Beauty and the Beast (for which he won a

Golden Globe), as Hellboy in the 2004 Hellboy movie, the 2008 sequel

Hellboy II: The Golden Army and as Clarence "Clay" Morrow in the hit

TV series Sons of Anarchy.

"We're excited to welcome Ron Perlman to Salt Lake Comic Con," said

Dan Farr, Salt Lake Comic Con Founder and Show Producer.  "He's played

so many roles in so many fan favorites and has been a mainstay with

voice roles in animated series such as Ironman, Superman: The Animated

Series, Batman and Teen Titans that he is a favorite of fans of all

ages."

Ziering starred in Sharknado, a made for TV movie that features a

tornado made of water that lifts sharks out of the ocean and dumps

them on the streets of Los Angeles, flooding the city with man eating

sharks. In addition to Sharknado, Ziering is best known for his role

as Steve Sanders in the 1990's teen drama Beverly Hills 90210.

Roberts was nominated for a Golden Globe for his role in King of the

Gypsies.  He was also nominated for a Golden Globe and Academy Award

for his supporting role in Runaway Train.  Most recently he is known

for his recurring role on NBC's hit series Heroes. There will be a

special screening of Roberts's new movie, LA Slasher on September 4,

2014 at the Gateway Megaplex Theaters.  LA Slasher is a biting, social

satire about reality TV and the glorification of people who are famous

for simply being famous.

"Sharknado quickly gained a cult following and became a huge fan

favorite and we're thrilled to have Ian Ziering join us at Salt Lake

Comic Con," said Bryan Brandenburg, Salt Lake Comic Con Co-Founder and

Chief Marketing Officer.  "We know our fans are in for a real treat

with the opportunity to see the special screening of LA Slasher.Eric

Roberts is so prolific and so recognizable for the many roles he's

played that we're confident LA Slasher will be a real hit at our

convention. Adding Perlman, Ziering and Roberts makes an already

stellar guest list even more exciting. "

This year's event is expected to draw more than 120,000 attendees and

is already the most attended event ever to take place at the Salt

Palace Convention Center as well as the largest first year comic con

in North American history. VIP tickets are sold out, but Gold,
