CELEBS AT CON
SDCC got the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn panel out of the way in a hurry, and supporting Cullens Nikki Reed, Ashley Green, Elizabeth Reaser were up early to greet Twihards and serve them breakfast, while Julia Jones posed with fans, Bill Condon hit the red (yellow) carpet, and the big trio descended – Stewart, Lautner, and Pattinson with a lopsided haircut.
Bruce Campbell looks very groovy, baby. The real Hulk, Lou Ferrigno, preps for the masses. Jamie Kennedy hangs with Klingons. Tina Majorino’s in town for Napoleon Dynamite. Peter Gallagher seems quote happy. PeeWee Herman signs autographs, and Hugh Jackman promotes Real Steel.
