Nolan's Twitter profile tells his nearly 30,000 followers all they need to know about what to expect from his tweets: "I am not a dummy, I just play one on TV." And it's true! But that doesn't mean he doesn't share some of Luke's funny bone.
Hearing that he was making the trek to San Diego Comic-Con for the very first time, we thought he'd be the perfect person to share some hilarious thoughts on all the craziness, post-Con.
With tweets over the weekend from the start of his trip ("Comic-Con I am on my way! I am new so be nice.")to a good lesson learned ("I learned the trick for Comic-Con. Nintendo 3D for waiting in all the lines!") and even a twitpic of Batman perusing the lunch menu, it certainly looked and sounded like Nolan had fun ... but what was it really like?
Here, 12 random Comic-Con musings of a first-timer, by Nolan Gould.
1. The costumes get better (and warning, more inappropriate) as it gets later in the day. Oh, and guys don't look good in women's underwear!
2. Everyone is really friendly and helpful. Surprising for such a large crowd.
3. The exhibition hall is freezing and the Sails Pavillion is hot.
4. The bags were bigger than me and so wide it was hard to move through the crowd with them. I got knocked over several times by people's loaded loot bags.
5. People at Comic-Con will stand in line for anything that is free. Commemorative paper clip? Yes, please!
6. Comic-Con is extremely well organized and efficient at moving people around.
7. It is really hard to tell what a line is for (but you better get in it quick anyways) and where the line is that you want to be in (the program lines are like some crazy maze).
8. There should be a sign in each program line that reads "if you are beyond this sign, there is a chance you may not be seated" so you can decide if you should wait two hours for nothing or not. (Come on, Disney can do it!)
9. There is no one I would wait six hours in line to see. No one alive anyways. (If Jesus or Einstein shows up I am there!)
10. Loosely related Comic-Con facts: I love Nintendo and Old Spaghetti Factory.
11. Comic-Con needs to have a Modern Family panel next year!
12. Everyone knows what is going on but me!
