PRESS RELEASE: More good news awaits the pop culture lovers around the region as two more international stars are set to fire up Asia Pop Comicon Manila 2015 (APCC Manila) slated on September 17 to 20 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.
Among the headliners for this mega pop culture gathering, Hollywood heartthrob Chad Michael Murray of Marvel’s hit TV series, Agent Carter, will showcase his brooding good looks and share his acting talent at APCC Manila, together with professional wrestler and actor Bill Goldberg.
Murray, who resides in Wilmington, North Carolina, is known for his role as Lucas Scott in One Tree Hill (2003). The 6-foot tall model-turned-actor has also serenaded Jamie Lee Curtis with Britney Spears’ “Baby One More Time” in Freaky Friday (2003) and became Hilary Duff’s “Prince Charming” in A Cinderella Story (2004). Murray also starred in the B-horror flick House of Wax (2005) and The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia (2013).
For Goldberg’s part, he is best known for his appearances with World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and in World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). He is notable for his lengthy undefeated streak in singles competition. Goldberg is a two-time world champion: a one-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion, and one-time World Heavyweight Champion in WWE. He is recognized by WWE as the first undefeated world champion in the history of professional wrestling, and the first man to hold a version of the Big Gold Belt in both WCW and WWE.
As an actor, Goldberg has appeared in movies such as Santa’s Slay, Universal Soldier, and The Longest Yard, to name a few. He was also part of the cast of Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice.
Goldberg is set to invade APCC Manila together with the cast of his new film, Checkpoint (to be shown in 2016). He will be coming together with Mindy Robinson, Kenny Johnson, Tyler Mane, and William Forsythe.
