    I don't want to be the poor ops person who has to put booster seats into those cabins.

    Apparently Gary Sinese is gone from the pre-show... the replacement, supposedly, should satisfy most due to "her nerd credentials".

    I guess we'll see next Thursday.

    Hmmm.

    I'm gonna guess Karen Gillam. Nebula from Guardians of the Galaxy and Amy Pond from Dr Who a few years back. That's good nerd cred.

    Unless their connections to Jim Cameron got them Sigourney Weaver... that'd probably be the ultimate nerd cred.

    Oh God... it's not Kaley Cuoco, just cause she's on Big Bang Theory? Or maybe Miyam Bialik from the show, who's at least a real scientist.

    Nahhh, my guess is Karen Gillam.

    Apparently she's a Joss Whedon alumni.

    I'd say Alyson Hannigan because she's not doing much these days other than hosting Penn and Teller's magic show

    No wait!

    Morena Baccarin? Firefly, Deadpool, Gotham... She's all about nerd stuff and Whedon alumni.

    Damn it! Saying "Lieutenant Dan" loudly when he popped on always generated some laughs. Now how am I supposed to appear funnier than I really am?

    My guess would be Jewel Staite, Felicia Day, or Morena Baccarin.

    Now that I'm thinking about it a little more, Cobie Smulders or Elizabeth Olsen would be really good fits, too.

    You could always just shout "LIEUTENANT DAN!" at whoever pops up on the screen, anyways, just to really confuse everybody in the room.

    Yea, Cobie Smulders would be a great fit for sure. She can even wear a SHIELD uniform right off the Avengers set and look the part.

    Bummer! No replacement will be satisfactory!

    I recall reading they originally wanted Tom Hanks when they were developing the pavilion. Too much money, of course.

    If it's a Whedon alum with nerd cred, it's more than likely Felicia Day.

    But she seems like an odd choice for capcom, because she's generally known for characters that are rather unassuming or gentle.

    Maybe it's an intentional choice to make people less afraid of the attraction. Feedback was always that the preshow warnings were too intimidating.

    I wish she'd host the Green side and Sinese stays on the Orange.
