The Arrow aimed for Chicago convention in March

SHARE The Arrow aimed for Chicago convention in March

Add another “Arrow” to Walker Stalker Con Chicago’s quiver.

The fan-centric convention announced Tuesday night that Canadian actor Stephen Amell will join the line-up when the event comes to town March 14-16 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont. Amell plays Oliver Queen and superhero vigilante the Arrow on the CW show by the same name. He can do a mean salmon ladder and has the abs to prove it.

Most of the talent booked for Walker Stalker Con Chicago comes from “The Walking Dead,” which makes its much-anticipated midseason premiere Feb. 9. The convention, first held in “TWD” territory of Atlanta late last year, isn’t strictly for fans of the AMC zombie drama. Henry Ian Cusick (“Lost,” “Scandal”), Mackenzie Lintz (“Under the Dome,” “The Hunger Games”) and Nestor Carbonell (“Lost,” “Bates Motel”) are among the non-“Walking Dead” contingent scheduled to appear.

Tickets are still available for purchase on the Walker Stalker Con Chicago website.
