Whether you like comic books, science fiction, horror, anime, movies, television, video games or some other form of cult entertainment, we’re pretty sure you’ll find something that floats your boat at the second annual Albuquerque Comic Expo. It runs Friday through Sunday at the Convention Center in Downtown Albuquerque. Stan Lee will be there. Kevin Smith will be there. Kevin Sorbo, Billy Dee Williams, Katee Sackhoff, Adam Baldwin, Bill Sienkeiwicz, Mike Grell, Michael Golden: It’s like a who’s who of pop culture. Check out our list of Top 10 Things to Do at ACE for a little guidance.

Bullet Needs Background
There will be a major casting call this Sunday, Dec. 11, for the “post Civil War Western” Silver Bullet (which I think we can all agree is the worst fake working title they could possibly have come up with for Disney’s remake of The Lone Ranger). The casting call will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Far Horizon Studio (300 Washington SE, suite 304). Casting director Elizabeth Gabel (Cowboys & Aliens, Terminator Salvation, No Country For Old Men, Paul) will conduct the day-long search. Producers are looking for “Native Americans, Asians, Anglos and Hispanics of all ages, as well as expert horse riders to appear in non-speaking roles.” The production is also on the hunt for “men with facial hair and for trapeze and circus artists.” (I’m thinking if you’re a hairy trapeze artist, you’re in like Flynn.) These are all paid positions. The film, which stars Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, will begin shooting in the Albuquerque / Santa Fe area in February.
