Actor Dirk Benedict, the original Starbuck from "Battlestar Galactica" fame, is the first media guest announced at The Jet City Comic Show on Nov. 8 at the Greater Tacoma Convention & Trade Center.

Though Benedict originated the Starbuck role in the first incarnation of "Battlestar" he's probably best known for his role as Faceman in the 1980s television comedy/drama "The A-Team."

Benedict has Northwest roots. He lives in Montana where he was born and raised. He attended college in Walla Walla and performed in the Seattle Repertory Theatre before moving to Hollywood.

Jet City Comic Show also has a number of big names in comics attending. For more on them go here: http://www.jetcitycomicshow.com/guests
