“Up Close and Personal: A Conversation with Lance Gross”

  • And movies you’ve seen Gross in without Perry: Steel Magnolias, The Last Fall, Our Family Wedding
  • What to expect from this special conversation: a beloved actor explaining his craft, espousing on his career, and revealing candid stories of what goes on behind the scenes
  • What to expect during the Q&A with the audience: shy fans summoning the courage to talk to the star, lots of questions about Perry, and more shy fans in the audience who actually might be Perry in disguise

Orlando Jones

  • Behind-the-scenes work Orlando Jones did before you met him: writing for A Different World and Roc, co-producing The Sinbad Show
  • When you first met him: as one of the original nine cast members on MadTV
  • The reason you didn’t have caffeine from 1999–2002: Orlando’s comedic ads for 7 Up
  • Where you’ve seen him lately: as Captain Frank Irving on Fox’s Sleepy Hollow
  • Special surprise for film-festival audiences: Orlando will also be screening his action-comedy short film Tainted Love, which is based on his graphic novel
