Ever so kind, gracious, and just a swell fellow to talk to and listen up on….and a great actor to boot. Danny Glover was pretty much one of the biggest names in legend to be at this year’s Phoenix Comic Con. Going over a legacy of over 30 years in TV and film, and noting most of his famous roles there, Mr. Glover brought smiles, laughter, and great memories to young and old alike.

Mr. Glover got on stage to his panel around 3 pm, Sunday, June 8th.  A couple of round-off questions were made by the host presenter for the panel before the audience’s turn, citing inquiry on what were his influences to pursue theater and acting in general.  After which, the spotlight on Q n A turned to the general audience, going over various times in Glover’s acting career such as his turn on the TV Miniseries classic LONESOME DOVE, his famous role in the Spielberg drama epic THE COLOR PURPLE, and the ever-popular LETHAL WEAPON action film series   Other talk focused on the endearing baseball fantasy comedy-drama ANGELS IN THE OUTFIELD, the sequel followup to the 80’s sci-fi action flick PREDATOR, PREDATOR 2, and others.
