Steel City Con returns to Monroeville Convention Center
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.
