When Bruce Campbell hands out money from the stage -- in return for compliments from the audience on his sexiness -- you know the Comic-Con “Burn Notice” panel is going well.

That was the case today as the “Burn Notice” squad -- including Campbell, director/actor Tim Matheson, executive producer/writer Alfredo Barrios Jr. and series creator Matt Nix -- took the stage in Ballroom 20. Moderated by Chris Vance, who played the villain Gilroy in the show, the panel was lively, mostly spurred on by Campbell’s antics.

Vance started off by asking Nix whether the show got any warnings from the government not to reveal secrets about plotting crimes and such. Nix replied: “We have had some bomb guys tell us, ‘Maybe you shouldn’t say that,’ in an episode dealing with ... a bomb.”


Members of the audience repeatedly told Campbell he was sexy, and to show his appreciation, Campbell walked to the edge of the stage and handed out money. A few times.

Breaking news: A “Burn Notice” executive came out on stage to announce that Campbell would be starring in a TV movie that would explore the life of his character, Sam Axe, before he retired, including his time in the military. It was an exclusive because, Nix explained, “We didn’t know if we’d even be announcing it an hour ago.”
