We Can Rebuild Him!… Lee Majors To Make First Wizard World Comic Con Appearance at Big Apple in October

Lee Majors, who has starred in numerous television series over six decades, most notably “The Six Million Dollar Man,” “The Fall Guy,” and “The Big Valley,” will be a special guest at Wizard World Big Apple Comic Con, October 1-3, at Penn Plaza Pavilion in New York. The appearance will mark Majors’ first at a Wizard World show, and his first convention in more than 30 years.

Majors, whose portrayal of “Col. Steve Austin” in the hit television series and other TV movies and series helped make the “Six Million Dollar Man” franchise one of the most popular of the 1970′s into the 1980′s, got his first big regular role as “Heath Barkley” in “The Big Valley,” which ran from 1965-69. After co-starring in “Owen Marshall: Counselor at Law” in the early 1970′s, he was cast in the lead role in a TV movie version of The Six Million Dollar Man that was later turned into the hugely successful series.

“I am looking forward to meeting fans at my first Wizard World Comic Con experience,” said Majors. “It has been a while since I have had this opportunity, and I’m glad that ‘Six Million Dollar Man’ and some of the other programs I’ve been in have remained a part of pop culture for so long.”

“Lee Majors and the ‘Six Million Dollar Man’ were iconic figures in the 1970′s,” said Gareb Shamus, Wizard World CEO. “We are honored and excited that he has chosen Big Apple Comic Con to make his first convention appearance in three decades.”

Majors joins a group of celebrities at Big Apple Comic Con that includes Adam West, Julia Jones, Mickey Rooney, the “Brady Bunch boys – Barry Williams, Christopher Knight and Mike Lookinland and Erik Estrada.
