Graydon Gould to appear at San Diego Convention!
Voice of Mike Mercury will sign at the Misc!MAYHEM
/A&E Home Video Booth.
Graydon Gould, fondly remembered by Gerry Anderson fans as the voice of SUPERCAR’s Mike Mercury, will be making a rare American appearance as the guest of Misc!MAYHEM and A&E Home Video at this year’s Comic-Con International 2003. The Comic-Con runs from July 17 -20 at the San Diego Convention Center.
“I’m very excited about Graydon’s appearance at the show,” enthused
Kez Wilson, Misc!MAYHEM”s publisher. “I met Mr. Gould for the first
time in England at Fanderson’s “Stand By For Action” show. I didn’t think
anything could be better than publishing new SUPERCAR adventures,
but meeting Mike Mercury face to face was a real pleasure.”
Gould, born in 1937, went to Hollywood after his stint on SUPERCAR to
further his acting career. His credits include an appearance on TV’s
“Matlock” and the role of the Public Official in “Mission: Impossible”
(1996). His most recent big-screen role was that of Dana’s dad from the
film “Deja Vu” (1998) which starred Vanessa Redgrave.
As a convention exclusive, Gould will be signing and numbering a very
limited amount of Johnny Lightning replica black-and-white Supercars,
licensed and produced through Misc!MAYHEM. Although full color
versions of this car will be available both before and after the
convention, the limited “Signature Series” will only be available in San
