Zachary Levi Talks “Beautiful, Excellent and Intimate” Wedding—and the Best Nerd Party of the Year!

Posted by Hayley in Jul 25,2014 with No Comments

Zachary Levi is off the market. But he’s still having what we’d like to think of a giant nerd orgy (platonic, of course!) down at San Diego Comic Con right now.

It’s the fourth year for Levi’s Nerd HQ, an impressive, massive and –we’ll just say it—cool ass “Mini Con” that Levi started to “compliment” the big Con next door, and raised $215,00 last year for Operation Smile. The four-day event offers celebrity panels and exclusive gaming and tech experiences, and all proceeds go to charity.

“We have some awesome returning guests,” Levi told us of this year’s nerd-tivities (that’s not a word). “Joss Whedon, Nathan Fillion, Alan Tudyk, Seth Green, Orphan Black, The Giver, Into the Storm and myself, I’m always out there doing a panel or two as well. Really, all we try to do every year is give the fans what they really want. So, we listen to
them Twitter…Stephen Amell is doing a panel, Felicia Day and Wil Wheaton are doing a panel. And we have mystery panels…We try to keep them really light and fun.”

Levi’s also known for throwing the best Comic Con bashes with his Nerd HQ parties, which seem to have an iron-clad “no douchebags” policy, because everyone seems to have a legitimate bash and the dance floor is packed.

“I just like dancing,” Levi explains (not that he needs to). “I think any time you have an opportunity to dance, then you should dance, so let’s make an opportunity for that.”

Levi married Reaper star Missy Peregrym in a surprise ceremony in Hawaii last month, and refers to it as the best day of his life. And of course, no one really saw it coming. Although he and Missy had dated years ago, their rekindling was pretty hush-hush and then whammo! The awesome hoodie pic that revealed it all…

“I’m probably too public with my life and need to kind of rein that back in a little bit,” he joked of the small, secret affair. “It was nice to just kind of have our own little personal, very small wedding. There were a lot of friends and family that weren¹t even able to come, I felt bad about that. It¹s that one big day, but it was really beautiful, excellent and intimate.”

And Chuck fans, he has not forgotten about the other awesome The Nerd Herd! “I’d love to do a Chuck movie at some point,” Levi tells us, “but I don’t know how and when that’s going to happen. I’ll leave that up to the powers that be…I would love to see it.” [SOURCE]

Spotlight: How Zachary Levi Made Nerd HQ the Place to Be During Comic-Con

Posted by Hayley in Jul 25,2014 with No Comments

SSN: Why did you decide to start Nerd HQ during the week of Comic-Con?
Levi: 
Comic-Con is a pretty massive gathering so we thought that was a good place to activate the brand. It came to us that doing an offsite activity was going to give us the most bang for our buck. And what started as brainstorming a single day of some signings culminated in four days and three nights of activities.

SSN: What did you want to bring to the fans that attend?
Levi:
 A lot of those people can’t go to E3 and CES because they’re for professionals. I really wanted to bring [those] flavors to Comic-Con and put it all in a one stop shop and allow fans free access to check things out and have some celebrity interactions to raise money for charity. I wanted attendees to have this little bastion where they could say, ‘Oh wow, I’m going to take a breath…and then party my ass off at the end of the night.’ That’s what we shoot for.

We barely got off the plane before we were whisked away to our first interview, “Chuck” star and The Nerd Machine founder Zachary Levi invited ET Canada to a sneak peek at this year’s Nerd HQ and opened up about why he’s all smiles about raising money for Operation Smile.

With Comic-Con 2014 gearing up in a big way, Levi (a seasoned Con goer) gave Rick some advice for what he can expect for his first go. “Oh dude, you’re getting a major cherry pop this weekend,” Levi says adding a couple of important tips for any fanboy. “Hydrate, that’s very important. Stretch, that’s also important. There’s so much stimuli that goes on downtown during this weekend and people popping up at restaurants and bars and half of a baseball stadium…”

Speaking of taking over half of a baseball stadium, this year, Levi’s nerd baby, The Nerd Machine, is taking over Petco Park for the second year to bring together nerds and geeks alike, Nerd HQ.

“Here at Nerd HQ our mantra from the beginning was we just wanted to compliment the programming that’s already going on at the convention and elsewhere, it’s so amazing and we do our own version, a little smaller, more interactive version of a lot of things,” he explained. [Read the rest here]
