Best known for playing baddass marine Corporal Hicks in James Cameron’s 1986 classic Aliens, Michael Biehn is the latest star to join the special guest roster for MCM Birmingham Comic Con, attending both days of next month’s pop culture event.
Biehn became a sci-fi icon for his roles in Cameron’s big ‘80s box office hits – as well as going on a bug hunt in Aliens, the American actor came back from the future as SkyNet-battling, shotgun-toting Sgt. Kyle Reese in The Terminator and descended into the depths as unstable Navy SEAL commander Lt. Coffey in underwater drama The Abyss.
While Biehn was back in uniform for 1990’s Navy SEALs and 1996 Michael Bay actioner The Rock, it’s for his memorable turn as psycho gunslinger Johnny Ringo in 1993 Western Tombstone that non-science fiction fans will know him best. More recently, Michael Biehn appeared in Planet Terror, Robert Rodriguez’s half of the Grindhouse double feature.
MCM Birmingham Comic Con comes to the NEC on 17-18 March. Tickets to the show are available here.
