Val Kilmer - Fri/Sat/Sun

Batman Forever / Tombstone

Originally a stage actor, Kilmer became popular in the mid-1980s after a string of appearances in comedy films, starting with Top Secret!, then the cult classic Real Genius, as well as the military action film Top Gun, the fantasy film Willow, and Doc Holliday in Tombstone.
Some of his other notable film roles include Jim Morrison in The Doors, "Mentor" Elvis Presley in True Romance, armed robber Chris Shiherlis in Heat, Bruce Wayne / Batman in Batman Forever, Simon Templar in The Saint , and Moses in Prince Of Egypt.
During a brief hiatus, he backpacked throughout Europe before going on to play the lead character in the 1985 comedy Real Genius. He turned down a role in David Lynch's Blue Velvet before being cast as naval aviator "Iceman" in the action film Top Gun alongside Tom Cruise. Top Gun grossed a total of $344,700,000 worldwide and made Kilmer a major star. Following roles in the television films The Murders in the Rue Morgue and The Man Who Broke 1,000 Chains, Kilmer played Madmartigan in the fantasy Willow .
In December 1993, Batman Forever director Joel Schumacher had seen Tombstone and was most impressed with Kilmer's performance as Doc Holliday. Schumacher felt him to be perfect for the role of Batman, though at the time, the role was still Michael Keaton's. In July 1994, Keaton decided not to return for a third Batman film after 1992's Batman Returns, due to "creative differences". Kilmer took the role without even reading the script.

Kevin Conroy - Sat/Sun

Batman

By 1992, Tim Burton had brought Batman back to life. His first two movies were effective, and Warner Bros. wanted, badly, to leverage demand with Batman: The Animated Series, which originally aired in primetime on Fox, paid for with twice the typical budget for an animated show of its kind. This was a darker and more grownup Batman. And the studio needed a voice for him.

Conroy says. "I decided that the Bruce Wayne persona, the public persona, is the performance, and the Batman character is who he is when he is most natural. When he's putting on the cape, he is becoming himself." Everyone's got issues.

 

Conroy got the part, but he still had work to do. "The Batman voice was the voice you've heard. But the Bruce Wayne voice was a high, light, playboy voice with a lot of irony and humor in it," he says. "As the studio finished the animation, they realized the show was so dark that Bruce Wayne's light sound was jarring." Conroy was asked to re-record the first five or six episodes, cementing the more subtle voices heard in that series, its spin-offs, and video games ever since.

Kevin will be attending Sat/Sun!

Sting - Sunday Only

WWE Superstar

Often dubbed “The Franchise of WCW,” the man called Sting is one of the most recognizable and unique faces in sports-entertainment history. It was that distinction that made him the backbone of the Atlanta-based organization throughout the late 1980s until the end of WCW in 2001.

Beginning with his NWA debut in 1987, Sting brought an enormous amount of charisma to the ring with his bleach blond hair, colorful face paint and neon ring gear. However, at the inaugural Clash of the Champions, a 45-minute time limit draw against NWA World Champion Ric Flair proved The Stinger was on his way to becoming one of sports-entertainment’s elite. Eventually, Sting defeated Flair for the NWA Title, and would later add six WCW World Titles, three WCW Tag Team Championships, two WCW International World Titles and two United States Championships to his resume throughout his career. 

Though The Stinger often likes to say "the only thing sure about Sting is that nothing is for sure," there is one thing nobody can deny - that Sting has had a Hall of Fame-worthy career. That was confirmed on the eve of WrestleMania 32, when he joined the WWE Hall of Fame as a member of the Class of 2016.

 

Sting will be attending SUNDAY ONLY this year!

Dustin Rhodes - Sat/Sun

GoldDust

Beneath the platinum blond wig, sleek latex and gobs of gold face paint is the son of WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes; Dustin Patrick Rhodes. Good luck trying to understand him, though. Goldust is a twisted enigma wrapped in a package of many surprises — or, as some of his past rivals probably would describe him, "a sick freak."

The WWE Universe has been taken on a long, fascinating trip since The Bizarre One first strutted his bedazzled stuff in 1995. With an envelope-pushing style that predated the scandalous Attitude Era, Goldust instantly became a Superstar to watch and an oddity to fear. When the cameras were rolling on him, you got the sense anything could happen.

After winning his debut match against Marty Jannetty at In Your House in ’95, he soon turned his attention to a polar opposite, a greased slice of oozing machismo known as Razor Ramon. Seemingly at will, as would be the norm with "The Prince of Perversion," he prodded and manipulated Razor's mind like a chunk of Silly Putty. Capitalizing on his unusual tactics, Goldust defeated "The Bad Guy" at WWE Royal Rumble 1996 to win the Intercontinental Championship.

 

 

Dustin will be attending Sat/Sun!

He grew up in Lincoln, Nebraska, and at age 14 moved with his family to Lake Havasu, Arizona, where he won a drama scholarship to the University of Arizona. He left prematurely two years later to pursue an acting career in Hollywood. His first big role was as a psychotic fan stalking Lauren Bacall in The Fan (1981) and later appeared in The Lords of Discipline (1983). He hit the big-time when he was cast as Kyle Reese, the man sent back through time to stop Arnold Schwarzenegger in James Cameron's The Terminator (1984). This established a good working relationship with Cameron, a relationship that should have catapulted Biehn to international stardom. He starred in Cameron's subsequent films, Aliens (1986) and The Abyss (1989), the latter a standout performance as unstable Navy SEAL officer Lt. Hiram Coffey. In the 1990s he starred in films like Navy Seals (1990), K2 (1991) and was particularly memorable as Johnny Ringo in Tombstone (1993). Biehn is married and the father of four sons.
