He’s best known as pilot Cash Wayne on Spectrum, a short-lived science fiction show about the crew of a small ship roaming the stars under the command of Captain James Rakker. But Wray Nerely has other work he’d like to do, and he would love to get away from the convention circuit and live his dreams of being a “legitimate” actor.
Such is the setup for Con Man, the new web series from Firefly alumnus Alan Tudyk. Along with co-star Nathan Fillion and author P.J. Haarsma, Tudyk delivers a comedy that’s best described as “Extras meets Galaxy Quest” — based in part on real convention experiences, with the expected exaggeration firmly in place.
Now available on Vimeo, Con Man was a labor of love, funded completely by fans on Indiegogo. We got a chance to talk with Alan about the project (along with Scorch Trials and a little thing called Star Wars…)
~ More Con Man is possible
~ He can’t talk about Rogue One
~ Diego Luna and Felicity Jones are great to work with
~ Alan loves the scene on the plane when Wray gets schooled
~ Ultimately, the show is about Wray’s come-uppance
~ Respect for fandom was always important for the show
