It looks like those Duke boys are at it again.

Stars of the late 1970s and early 1980s TV show “The Dukes of Hazzard” are making their return to Steel City Con in the Monroeville Convention Center, 209 Mall Blvd., Aug. 10 to 12.

Actors John Schneider (Bo), Tom Wopat (Luke) and Catherine Bach (Daisy) will be available for photos and autographs all three days.

They have been at several Steel City Cons before, and Bach and Wopat were at the World of Wheels car show in Pittsburgh last year.

Thousands of pop culture enthusiasts and comic book fans are expected to attend to meet and greet entertainers spanning several pop culture genres. Fans of “The Karate Kid” will be shown no mercy from Cobra Kai members William Zabka (Johnny Lawrence), Rob Garrison (Tommy) and Martin Kove (Sensei John Kreese).

Other celebrity guests include Hollywood icon Ron Perlman (“Hellboy,” “Sons of Anarchy”), John Cusack (“Say Anything,” “High Fidelity”), Kathleen Turner (“Romancing the Stone,” “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”), Robert Wagner (“Austin Powers” trilogy, “Hart to Hart”), Shannon Elizabeth (“American Pie,” “Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back”), pro wrestling legend Rob Van Dam, pop rock legend Michael Nesmith of The Monkeys and Jyoti Amge (Ma Petite) from “American Horror Story: Freak Show” and Guinness World Record holder as the smallest living woman.

The screenwriter and director who some call the creator of Western Pennsylvania’s zombie pop culture, John “Jack” Russo also is scheduled to attend. Russo, who grew up in Clairton and lives in Glassport, co-wrote “Night of the Living Dead” and starred in “My Uncle John is a Zombie!”

Doors are open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Aug. 10-11, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 12.

Parking is free. Tickets are $23 for Aug. 10 and 12, $35 for Aug. 11.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
