Shane West from 'Nikita' attending C2E2

"Nikita"star Shane West will participate in C2E2 April 13-15 at McCormick Place in Chicago, stepping in for Maggie Q, who had to cancel due to the filming schedule for the final episodes of the CW series.

West plays Michael, the ex-Division agent who has teamed up with Nikita both romantically and in her quest to take down the the rogue spy agency. I will moderate the "Nikita" panel 1 p.m. Saturday in IGN Theater, when West and creator/executive producer Craig Silverstein will share insider secrets about the final episodes of Season 2 and will show an exclusive sneak peek and recap film.

I'll start out with some questions for the gents, but fans attending will get to ask their own questions, too. So come on out, but no heckling allowed, OK? At least not me. Heckle West.

"Nikita" returns with new episodes at 7 p.m. April 20.

"Nikita" isn't the only TV show coming to the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo. Steven Yeun and Lauren Cohan, Glenn and Maggie in AMC's "The Walking Dead," will participate in a Q&A with fans at 4 p.m. Saturday in the IGN Theater.

Stephen Rannazzisi, who plays Kevin in FX's "The League," will host the C2E2 Comedy Show at 7:30 p.m. Friday that includes Kevin "Dot Com" Brown from "30 Rock.".

Other TV guests previously announced include "Torchwood" star John Barrowman, "One Tree Hill" star Chad Michael Murray, Chris Hardwick of "Nerdist" and "The Talking Dead," writer Jane Espenson and star Brad "Cheeks" Bell of "Husbands," Josh Gates of "Destination Truth," Nicholas Brendon of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," Stephanie Izard of "Top Chef," Ryan Buell of "Paranormal State" and Chicago fave Svengoolie.
