Loyal fans in Joes selfie

Post updated on 21 Aug

Joe Flanigan reunited in Chicago on 16 August 2014 with some of Stargate Atlantis alumni during what is was supposed to be the final journey (the last Stargate convention in Chicago), although they appear to consider having another convention in 2015 as well. That’s good, right?

The congoers report having as much fun as usual, and some of it (of the fun) spilled over twitter and we were able to collect it in order to share here with you.

Joe appeared in a panel with David Hewlett and Paul McGillion, while David Nykl, Connor Trinneer and Jason Momoa have also attended the convention.

Unfortunately Joe hasn’t announced new projects, but the con was not completely uneventful, as he tweeted twice (yes, TWICE!) during the convention, and also invited all his fans to follow him on instagram, at joeface1, where he already shares pictures. So, what are you waiting for?

 

 

 

 

Here the tidbits and links to pictures we’ve collected (shared by silvercomet21, flanigandailywormholeriders, AmeliaSubverxin, blinkybits and real_sgafan, to whom we are grateful!)

Joe: How many SG ppl does it take to turn on a microphone? Paul: Just one nerd (pointing at David).

When Joe was talking about the ep where he was fighting himself – David: Where they poked each other with their hair. 

Joe: How many SG ppl does it take to turn on a microphone? Paul: Just one nerd (pointing at David).

Q: Best and worse part about a con? Joe: We all know the worst part (patting David on the shoulder)

David and Paul were wearing the same vest. Looked like background singers of Joe, who was sitting in the middle. 

Paul & David were riffing on each other while Joe looked back & forth, finally asking why he was sitting between them.

Apparently Joe, Paul & Jason went out last night and Joe really needed his coffee today.

The boys (Joe, David and Paul) were hilarious together. Ask a question for 1 & the other 2 chime in!

Update 21 Aug 2014:

You’ll find here a nice gallery by @flanigandaily

About future projects: from the comments in this facebook post, we know that:

[...] he said he was still trying to get a movie made from the book he bought the rights to. (editor’s note: the book in question is “A Terrible Splendor“, by Marshall Jon Fisher)

Someone did ask Joe very specifically about the book/movie only during the panel. No one asked about current projects in general.
