One of my personal childhood heroes, Kevin Nash is more than his 6’10 frame lets on. Nash’s Claim to fame is his larger than life WWE persona, “Big Sexy,” one that has been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame! Nash’s big screen credits include Magic Mike, Rock of the Ages, The Longest Yard, and Monster Brawl, with many Panama City Beach Comic Con fans recognizing him as “The Russian” in the 2004 film The Punisher.
3. James DuMont (Actor, Producer)
Perhaps one of the most accomplished character actors of the past decade, James DuMont has held supporting roles in some of the biggest blockbusters and most talked-about TV shows of the 2000s. Most recently appearing as Hal Osterly in Jurassic World, DuMont is no stranger to big-ticket productions. Fans of American Horror Story will recognize DuMont as “Foster” in season 3 of American Horror Story.
4. Lindsey McKeon (Actress)
The absolutely stunning Lindsey McKeon began her career at age 12, and has since graced the screen in hit TV shows and films alike. From Boy Meets World to Always Sunny in Philadelphia, this versatile actress has portrayed characters in top-notch comedy, drama, and sci-fi!

McKeon is one of several actors/actresses featured in Supernatural, a sci-fi detective show starring Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki.
5. Felix Silla (Actor)
“The Man of Many Faces,” Felix Silla has been beloved by sci-fi fans throughout the decades. As a stunt-ape in the original Planet of the Apes, “Wunka” the flying ewok in Star Wars Episode VI, and “Cousin It” on The Adams Family TV show, Silla sets the bar high for all costume and voice-over actors! Between movies, the accomplished actor appeared in Las Vegas and Reno night clubs performing his personal musical combo, “The Original Harmonica Band.”
6. Fan Built Replica Impala from the TV Show “Supernatural”
Although this vehicle isn’t an “actor,” there was an episode of the show shot from the point of view of the classic Winchester-family car! This fan-built replica is so exact it was actually used in an episode of Supernatural! The appearance of the replica Impala in Supernatural season 9 makes the car the only screen-used car in the United States, and the only individual owned car that was ever screen-used!
7. Jenifer Ann (Cosplayer, Gamer, Artist, Model)
Bringing to life our favorite characters from TV, film, and video games, Jenifer Ann has solidified herself as one of the top costumers/cosplayers in the world! First introduced to cosplay by her close friend, the owner of Three Muses Clothing, Jenifer soon gained a following of loyal fans touring conventions across the country.
