More on Sean and Team Starkid at C2E2

[Team Starkid] had a new friend make a surprise appearance at their panel – fellow C2E2 guest and Lord of the Rings star, Sean Astin.

Astin appeared at the Q & A wearing the Scarecrow costume belonging to absent cast member Dylan Saunders, and sat in on the panel as an honorary StarKid. Both Team StarKid and the audience threw questions to him as ‘Dylan’, and he did his best to answer in character.

Astin appeared to enjoy the experience of being a StarKid for a day, dancing around the room with the cast as they performed “Super Friends,” the closing number of Holy Musical B@man!, before taking some pictures, signing a guitar, and doling out hugs to the group, telling them, as ‘Dylan’, “You guys will always be my Fellowship.”
Team StarKid, being the renowned geeks that they are, could not entirely make light of the situation, with Nick Strauss stating that this was the best thing that had ever happened to him, and Meredith Stepien interrupting herself mid-answer to squeal “I’m sorry, but Samwise Gamgee is sitting right there.” The whole table leapt to their feet cheering in excitement when Astin mentioned his involvement in Nickelodeon’s upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon.
