The imminent Wizard World Austin Comic Con has just added Lee Majors to its list of laurel-resting celebrities making an appearance.
Too good for "Dancing with the Stars," presumably, Lee Majors, who 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 Austin Comic Con, November 12-14 at the Austin Convention Center. The appearance will mark Majors' third consecutive appearance at a Wizard World show, following visits to Big Apple Comic Con and New England Comic Con earlier this month.
Majors, whose portrayal of Col. Steve Austin in the hit television 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.
Majors joins a group of formerly-famous celebrities at Austin Comic Con that includes iconic TV actors Adam West and Burt Ward, best known for their roles as Batman and Robin in the original 1960's TV series, but also known for reliving the glory days at conventions.
