Anna Faris, Janelle Monáe, Bob's Burgers Cast, Outlander Author Added to EW PopFest
EW’s PopFest lineup just got a little bit bigger. A live taping of Anna Faris’s podcast Anna Faris Is Unqualified, a musical performance from Grammy-winning singer Janelle Monáe, a conversation with Outlander author Diana Gabaldon, and a live table read from the cast of Bob’s Burgers have all been added to the two-day event, presented by Entertainment Weekly in Los Angeles this October.
The new announcements add to what is an already stacked schedule, featuring a performance from Nick Jonas, special appearances from James Corden, Jodie Foster, and Ryan Murphy (accompanied by cast members from his various television projects), and a Happy Endings cast reunion for a live reading of a never-before-seen episode.
Also on the docket are first-look footage and special guests from Sony’s Dark Tower, live musical renditions from the cast of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and a conversation between husband-and-wife YA authors Tahereh Mafi (Shatter Me) and Ransom Riggs (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children).
The weekend will conclude with a 20th-anniversary celebration for Scream, including a tribute to late director Wes Craven and an outdoor screening of the film.
EW PopFest will take place from Oct. 29 to 30 at The Reef in downtown Los Angeles. A detailed schedule of events along with additional confirmed talent will follow. For more information and to purchase tickets, go to: ewpopfest.com.
