Celebrities Who Were Incognito at San Diego Comic Con

While I love to poke fun at the sheer ridiculousness of San Diego Comic Con, there are some pretty cool things about it. One of the things I’ve always enjoyed reading about is celebrities getting the chance to walk through the crowds completely incognito, thanks to a mask or costume. So many people are dressed up or disguised in some way, that they can blend right in at an event where they would normally be mobbed. Some of them will later reveal themselves, some make a game of it as they’re walking the Con floor, and some probably keep it to themselves entirely and we’re never the wiser. Here’s a few celebrities who have used cosplaying to their advantage this year:

Maisie Williams, Game of Thrones
Everyone’s favorite tiny swordswoman just threw on a mask (or two) to enjoy the Con floor this year, but it looks like it worked for her!

Daniel Radcliffe, Horns
Daniel was there to promote the upcoming movie Horns based on Joe Hill’s novel and also got into character as everyone’s favorite web-slinger. In another interview, he mentioned that he wore a backpack and used an American accent just to complete the deception.

Jack Black, Goosebumps
Jack Black tried to wander the halls an an anonymous Storm Trooper, but was caught by TMZ. He seems confused as to why he was recognized, but since it looks like he’s wearing his official con pass, that might be a hint. (Warning, video is extremely irritating and I’m only posting it due to a lack of alternative sources.)

Adam Savage, Mythbusters
This has become something of a yearly tradition for Savage and he seems to get most into the spirit of cosplaying, even risking heat exhaustion for the sake of his costume.

Peter Jackson, The Hobbit
Peter Jackson dressed up as an evil jester, and even took pictures with fans while they had no idea who he was. He posted the reveal on his Facebook page.

    I can't say for sure where I heard this, but I think it was on an episode of "Doug Loves Movies", but: Simon Pegg revealed that, while promoting "Paul" a few years ago, after the panel discussion, Sigourney Weaver spent a few hours walking the floor in a full Batman costume, and blended right in since she's so tall.

    RE: Adam Savage.

    Cool, Cool, Cool. Here's hoping for a:

    next year (since he's got most of the costume).

    It looks like you've taken over weekend duties at the sprawling Pajiba complex on weekends, Genevieve. Did Dustin give you a set of keys? At any rate, thanks for giving us new posts to keep the withdrawal at bay.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    I am indeed the new weekend Overlord. I will continue to do my best to find ways to entertain you, although some weekends it's way easier than others.

  • TacoBellRey

    Osric Chau crashed the Supernatural panel while in a random costume.

  • I get chills every time I watch it, lol. All of them bowing gets me every time. http://ivelovedthestarstoofond...

    Talking about Maise Williams - where's the story about her possible casting in The Last of Us movie? It's all over gaming news.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    When it's confirmed, I'll see about it.

  • JustOP

    Awesome. There are some pretty interesting twitter exhanges between Williams and the writer of the game Neil Druckmann, and Ashely Johnson, the voice of Ellie.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Who's supposed to play the male lead?

  • Ryan Ambrose

    One can never go wrong with Guy Pearce. [hopeful expectation]

  • JustOP

    No idea. Hugh Jackman would look the part, though, and after Prisoners we know he's capable of playing someone who does some pretty brutal things.

  • Guest

    I thought Jackman was playing Nathan Drake?

  • Ben

    The rumor I read was Bruce Campbell which made me cringe.

  • JustOP

    That made me laugh. Imagine any of the one-liners from his movies transferred to the game. Find a shotgun? "Groovy". Attacked by a group of hunters? "Come get some".

    Marlene's final speech? "Honey, you got reeeeal ugly".

    Yaaarp.

  • NoPantsMcLane

    Someone ratted Jack Black out. Also those are the worst questions i have ever heard. His confused 'what?' answer to the last one was perfect.

    I just got paid $7500 working off my computer this month. And if you think that's cool, my friend has twin toddlers and made over $8k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do.....

    Does anyone ever really fall for this?

    This will be my 7th time being suckered in by something that seems so obvious in hindsight...
