“Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do. And if you do, take pictures.”
ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE Dean Stockwell, <i>Admiral Al Calavicci</i> from “Quantum Leap,” Joins the Wizard World Comic Con Tour!Veteran Of More Than Six Decades In Movies and TV To Make First Wizard World Appearance, Joining Fellow Quantum Leap Star Scott Bakula!

In a career which began as a standout child actor in the 1940s, Dean Stockwell has appeared in nearly 200 movies and television shows. Now after having starred in “Quantum Leap” and performed memorable roles in shows like “Battlestar Galactica” and films like MARRIED TO THE MOB, the Academy Award nominee and four-time Emmy nominee will be making his first appearances at Wizard World shows when he meets fans, signs autographs, poses for photos and takes part in a Q&A panel at Wizard World Philadelphia & Chicago Comic Cons!

Stockwell will be joined at the event by Scott Bakula, the lead in “Quantum Leap,” for which Stockwell earned all four of his Emmy nods.

Stockwell, who will turn 76 on March 3, is one of a handful of Hollywood child stars who has gone on to on-screen success as an adult. His preteen roles included 1940s blockbusters ANCHORS AWEIGH (1945) and GENTLEMAN’S AGREEMENT (1947), followed by well-received parts in SONS AND LOVERS (1960) and LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT (1962).

After a hiatus, Stockwell resumed his film career, taking on sophisticated supporting roles, including his Oscar-nominee-worthy performance in MARRIED TO THE MOB (1988) before playing the “boss” to Bakula in “Quantum Leap” (1989-93), appearing in the sci-fi series’ entire 97-episode run.
