I was at the 2007 Con and Russ was there for what seemed like a very short time (compared with the other actors that appeared). He talked about what he was up to for a few minutes and then opened the floor for questions, the second of which was one about his fan film, Of Gods and Men
, which "suddenly reminded him" that he has a trailer for the film. They showed it, and afterwards, said good-bye to the audience and walked off stage.
I mean, he was pleasant and all, but he really seemed like he didn't want to be there and was just there to pimp his fan film.
