Celebrity hunting at ATX TV Fest? Here are 10 to look out for

9:41 a.m. Tuesday, June 6, 2017 Things to Do
"A Deadly Adoption”

If you are interested in the faces you see on screens big and small, South By Southwest, the Austin Film Festival, the Moontower Comedy Fest and now the ATX TV festival -- these are the events that bring the somewhat famous, the famous and sometimes the REALLY famous from out of town.  

Here are ten folks to watch out for during the ATX TV festival

1. Will Ferrell: Probably the most purely famous person here for the fest, Ferrell is here to talk about “A Deadly Adoption,” his faux-Lifetime movie with Kristin Wiig

2. Milo Ventimiglia:  Ventimiglia has become the thinking and feeling-person’s hunk on “This is Us.” He isn’t Jess of “Gilmore Glirs” anymore. What is YOUR favorite  facial hair situation?

3. Chrissy Metz: Metz seemed to come out of nowhere, embodying Kate Pearson on “This is Us” with a mixture of heart and neuroses, love and soul.

4. Ebon Moss-Bachrach: You would be hard pressed to find a more annoying human being (and worse representation of the sensitive artist) than  Desi from “Girls,” but that exactly how Moss-Bachrach portrays him. A brilliant ick.

5. Jon Glaser: Speaking of annoying, Glaser, who did a lot of time on the writing staff of classic-era “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” made one’s skin crawl as Councilman Jeremy Jamm on “Parks and Rec” and creeped everyone out AGAIN (though not as hard) as the druggy but recovering Laird on “Girls.”

7. Hal Holbrook: The man perhaps best know as Mark Twain on stage and screen is 92 years old and still working. He is here discussing portrayals of Southern character as envisioned by television producer, writer and creator Linda Bloodworth-Thomason (”Designing Women,” “Evening Shade”).

"Battlestar: Galactica"

8. The entire frakking cast of “Battlestar Galactica: It’s reunion time. Edward James Olmos! Mary McDonnell! Katee Sackhoff! Tricia Helfer! Grace Park! James Callis! Michael Hogan! Michael Trucco

9. Brooklyn Decker: The model/actress concurrently known as Mrs. Andy Roddick is here to discuss her role in “Grace and Frankie”

10. Meghan Markle: This actress, currently dating Prince Harry (yes, that guy)
