Give-a-ways galore is part of the price at New York Comic Con and you never know what to expect. Last year the American living in Italy, George Clooney, chose to make his first appearance to promote this year’s TOMORROWLAND at NYCC. Clooney made a surprise visit mere days after his wedding. Joining the TOMORROWLAND panel of director Brad Bird, producer Damon Lindelof and the movie’s stars Rafferty Cassidy, Britt Robertson and Hugh Laurie, Clooney quipped, “It is not lost on me that I am spending my honeymoon at Comic Con.” The panel’s moderator Chris Hardwick asked, “Was that a conversation with the wife? Were you like, ‘We’re going to Comic Con!’” “Yes, and she was confused…”[Laughs]. Of course the Internet blew up when we all the texts went viral.
