Tony Moran at Days of the Dead Chicago 2015

Tony Moran is a classic example of the fun at comic cons.  He appeared as Michael Myers (unmasked) in 1978's Halloween.  He had a few episodic tv appearances around that time and then was offscreen until 2008.  Since then, he has done a few other acting projects.
At comic cons, Moran is very popular, despite a short acting resume.  He played Michael Myers!  That alone makes him popular and creates demand.  He played one of the most iconic horror characters of all time.
Fans of the Halloween franchise would want his autograph.  That's already a huge audience.  It is enough to keep him in demand at any comic con.  I witness his lines every time I see him at a con.
Moran is also very cool.  His lines move slowly, because he spends a fair amount of time with everyone.  I sometimes think Moran actually just enjoys being there and talking with the fans.  Of course, nobody complains about his lines, because eventually you know you will get the same decent amount of time and consideration from him.  You couldn't ask for more from a con guest.
Once again, I applaud the Days of the Dead gang who has brought him to cons a few times.  They look beyond a short acting resume to see a celebrity who the fans love and want to see
