Recently, the celebrity guests for the 2015 edition of the MEFCC were announced; the list includes legendary performer William Shatner who is best known for his screenplay roles in Star Trek films and TV series, not to forget his presence in Boston Legal comedy television series. One can expect his presence to be memorable, especially after the recent loss of Leonard Nimoy, none other than the actor who played Spock in both the 1960s TV series ‘Star Trek’ and the movies based on the show. William Shatner, the legendary Capt. James T. Kirk, remembered Nimoy “like a brother,” and like many Spock fans, he may also give a Vulcan salute to his longtime friend who passed away at age 83.
Other than William Shatner, Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy (actor Karl-Heinz Urban) will also be present at this year’s MEFCC showcasing new Star Trek franchise. He is also a star actor for playing Éomer in the second and third installments of Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and other motion pictures, like Judge Dredd in the 2012 film Dredd. These two actors are only two among many others who will be there. Even sci-fi legend, Sam Jones, best known for his iconic role as Flash Gordon, who made one of the most talked about cameo’s in recent years in the smash hit comedy ‘Ted’ will be present.
