Tony Moran at Days of the Dead Indy 2015

Tony Moran was the unmasked Michael Myers in the original Halloween, a role which reportedly paid $200.  After Halloween, Moran had a few roles on episodic television, before dropping out of the Hollywood scene.  He is also the brother of actress (and Johngy's Beat favorite) Erin Moran.
Moran returned to acting in 2008.  In 2010, he produced and starred in Beg, which also stars his Halloween co-star (and another Johngy's Beat favorite) P.J. Soles.
Despite a relatively short resume, Moran will always have a place at comic and horror cons.  This is exactly why the folks at Days of the Dead had him as part of their lineup in June.  When you appear in a classic like Halloween, you will always be in demand by the fans.  Plus, Michael Myers is such an iconic character.
For his part, Moran was very cool at the convention.  He seemed genuinely happy to be there, as he talked and laughed with his fans.  That's all you really want from any celebrity at these cons.
