Digging For Gold: Gold Rush Stars Todd Hoffman, Jack Hoffman, Jim Thurber To Attend Wizard World Portland Comic Con
The Discovery Channel series Gold Rush tells the story of a group of men from Sandy, Oregon, who try their luck at gold prospecting in Alaska, despite having no experience in mining.
The surprise hit recently completed its fourth season and with the guys back home in between filming, three of its stars, Todd Hoffman, Jack Hoffman and Jim Thurber, will attend Wizard World Portland Comic Con, Jan. 24-26, to meet fans, conduct a panel (Sunday, Jan. 26, noon, Room C124) discussing the show and sign free autographs for fans.
In the show, the Hoffmans are leading a group of greenhorn miners in search of the American dream and a new frontier. Gold fever is back, and the rush is on, but they have just five months to set up a gold mine and strike it rich before winter closes them down. While leasing a gold claim in Alaska, Todd and company must ward off bears, build homes for their families, and keep the operation running as they take fate into their own hands with a make or break venture that will change their lives forever.
Meet these pioneers at Oregon Convention Center this month.
