Bruce Boxleitner aka the iconic TRON -- celebrated his 62nd Birthday on Saturday, May 12th, 2012... serendipitously and fittingly enough at a media event for the premiere of the new animated series TRON: UPRISING.
Here's a video I shot of the surprise reveal of a TRON-themed birthday cake for Bruce -- along with his fellow cast and colleagues of TRON: UPRISING congratulating him and singing "Happy Birthday" -- amongst them: Actors & Actress: Elijah Wood (Beck), Tricia Helfer (The Grid), Nate Corddry (Zed), Justin Springer (Co-Producer of TRON: LEGACY & Associate Producer of TRON: UPRISING), Adam Horowitz & Eddy Kitsis (Writers of TRON: LEGACY & Writers/Associate Producers of TRON: UPRISING), Daniel Simon (Vehicle Designer of TRON: LEGACY & TRON: UPRISING), Charlie Bean (Director and Executive Producer of TRON: UPRISING), and Eric Coleman (Senior Vice President, Original Series, Disney Television Animation).
Also in attendance was the man who started it all -- Steven Lisberger -- director and co-writer of the first TRON movie, and a producer on TRON: LEGACY. Lisberger was also a consultant on this first ever TRON TV series.
to view the entire, exciting premiere prologue episode of TRON: UPRISING -- the series will begin on Disney's X D channel on June 7th.
