Vulture today announced additions to the lineup for its annual pop-culture extravaganza, Vulture Festival, which is returning for an eighth year in a row with a weekend of high-profile events where everything you love about Vulture comes to life right before your very eyes. Taking place from November 13-14 at The Hollywood Roosevelt in Los Angeles, the festival will bring fans an incredible array of actors in conversation, screenings, sing alongs, and unique surprises that only Vulture can provide.

Joining the first wave of event announcements, additions to the lineup include:

• A 3rd Rock From the Sun Reunion: Incoming message from the Big Giant Head: It’s a whole extraterrestrial family reunion for the Solomons as the cast of 3rd Rock From the Sun comes together for the beloved NBC series’ 25th anniversary. John Lithgow, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Kristen Johnston, and French Stewart will join us to celebrate — and oh my God, they’re GORGEOUS!

• A Conversation For Your Consideration: Simon Rex and Sean Baker Talk about Red Rocket: Acclaimed writer-director Sean Baker, best known for his remarkable films like The Florida Project and Tangerine, lit up the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year when he debuted the audacious new film Red Rocket. Starring Simon Rex in a magnetic, live-wire performance, Red Rocket is a darkly funny and humane portrait of a uniquely American hustler and a hometown that barely tolerates him. Join us for an in-depth conversation with Baker and Rex as they talk about tackling tough subject matter with authenticity, location as character, and much more.

• A Lovely Time With Mrs. Maisel’s Mom and Dad: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s Tony Shalhoub and Marin Hinkle sit down for a night of fond recollections and deep chats about the hit series’ past three seasons, as fans anxiously await the upcoming fourth season on Amazon Prime Video.

• An Extremely Cool and Exclusive Preview of the New Cowboy Bebop: Stars of the upcoming live-action adaptation of Cowboy Bebop John Cho, Daniella Pineda, and Mustafa Shakir join us for a discussion of the upcoming Netflix series that’s had everyone in an absolute tizzy. They’ll also treat us to a few sneak peeks of what’s to come, if you’re lucky!

• Hollywood Handbook Dives Into Hollywood Homicide With Bosch: A Coming Together of Two L.A. Institutions: Harry Bosch, L.A.’s top homicide detective, and Hollywood Handbook, a podcast about two A-list “It” boys living their showbiz dreams. Titus Welliver, who portrays Harry Bosch in Amazon’s longest-running series, Bosch, joins Hayes Davenport and Sean Clements, Hollywood Handbook hosts–Bosch superfans (Clements has a dog named Bosch), for a discussion of all things Bosch and all things Tinseltown.

• C’mon, C’mon — No, Really, Come On and Join Us for an Event With Mike Mills and Woody Norman: Academy Award–nominated writer-director Mike Mills is coming to Vulture Festival to talk his newest heartfelt feature, C’mon C’mon. Joining him in person, for the first time since filming, is the young up-and-comer Woody Norman. Join us as we talk to them about the film, working with Joaquin Phoenix and Gaby Hoffmann, and take a deep dive into Norman’s secrets to youth and longevity.

• Comedians You Should and Will Know, Hosted by Joel Kim Booster: Every year, Vulture highlights the up-and-coming comedians who are currently dominating what we call “industry chatter.” That’s right, baby: These are the comedians who are hot, hot, hot! This is your chance to see them live before they’re winning Emmys or selling out arenas, and it’s hosted by former Comedian You Should and Will Know whom you now know and love, Joel Kim Booster.

• Dancing With the Stars of Dancing With the Stars: Join the six finalist couples from the milestone 30th season of Dancing With the Stars as they show off their latest dance moves.

• Sarah Silverman and Seth Rogen: Two Friends: A Holiday Spectacular: Sarah Silverman and Seth Rogen are both starring in the upcoming HBO Max series Santa, Inc. They’re also two friends and legendary comedians who have agreed to let us all hang out with them for an hour or so and hear what they have to say. And yes, we know listening to two comedians talk is not necessarily a holiday tradition, but hey, if we wanted to, we could just make it one!
