Fedcon 2014 - Jay Acovone

Jay Acovone has played Major Kawalsky in "Stargate" - a role, in which he died in already the second episode, which he loved to point out over the weekend ;) But he was back a few times in alternate universes. Nobody is really dead in sci-fi.

He also has been in so famous movies as "Terminator 3" and "Independence Day" and even though I recently watched "Cast Away" I did not realize that he was the pilot there. I need to check it out again.

I have met Jay Acovone once before, he was in Bensheim 2003 but sadly back then I took no picture with him. So I was very happy when he got announced for Fedcon. We both are 11 years older now but who cares.

He also said that he is not so much relying on the acting anymore now but is building houses. So at the autograph session, when I was the only one in line, I started to chat with him about building (I do drawings in an engineer's office). At first we needed to establish that I don't do the architectural stuff but we do more the concrete and reinforcement. And we talked about bracing walls which surely only is a fascinating topic when you know your stuff ;) It was really great to chat with him like that. And here's my picture:
