Comic-Con 2010: 'Walking Dead,' 'Green Hornet' and more on day two agenda

By Jen Chaney

After just one day of Comic-Con, semi-exhaustion has already set in. Even a taco from the "Machete" cast and crew, while delicious, wasn't capable of completely reviving me.

But it's time to wake up and man up because there is plenty to do on day two of the Con.


Here are five items on my Friday Comic-Con agenda; again, I will do my best to Tweet live from the daytime activities, as well as some evening parties, at; you also can read along right here in the blog, where posts that contain said feeds will go live later today.

"The Walking Dead"

The upcoming AMC series about members of a Kentucky town dealing with a zombie-filled, post-apocalyptic existence looks intriguing, especially since Frank Darabont ("The Shawshank Redemption" and "The Mist") is writing, directing and executive-producing the TV adaptation of the comic. I have a feeling there will be much interest in this one, enough that perhaps Comic-Con organizers should have booked a larger room for today's 11:30 a.m. PST panel.

Interviews with Jeff Bridges and Kodi Smit-McPhee of "Let Me In"

I'll be pulled away from the Convention Center for a bit today so I can chat with "Tron" star Jeff Bridges and Kodi Smit-McPhee, appearing opposite Chloe Moretz in the "Let the Right One In" remake, "Let Me In." Those Q&As will be published in coming days here in Celebritology

"The Green Hornet"

The superhero comedy, starring Seth Rogen as the heir to a newspaper business who becomes an arbiter of vigilante justice, will attempt to win over the masses during Sony's presentation late this afternoon in Hall H. "The Other Guys," starring Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell, also will be showcased during the studio's panel.

Sterling Beaumon signing autographs

Who, you ask? Why, none other than the young Benjamin Linus from "Lost." JOpinionated reports that the actor will be meeting and greeting at the Stylin' Online booth in the Convention Center Exhibit Hall between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. PST today and tomorrow. (Andrea Gabriel, who played Nadia on the just-ended series, also is signing autographs in the Sails Pavilion on Saturday and Sunday.)

More parties: Every evening is packed with cocktail hours and receptions, but Friday might be the busiest. I have several on my agenda tonight, including a "Tron" party to be held in Flynn's Arcade, a replica of the one from the movie; the Tweet House party, onboard the USS Midway; and a meet-up for "Lost" fans, to be held in a good, old-fashioned restaurant. How I'll get to them all is beyond me.
