In Devil May Cry 3 and 4 he was both the motion capture actor and the English voice of Dante, the Gun/Sword toting hero of the franchise. Reuben's recent projects include brief appearances in the live action adaptation of, Bryan Lee O'Malley's graphic novel Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, director Michel Gundry's film adaptation of the classic TV show Green Hornet, and the new Latest from D.J. Caruso I Am Number 4. He also reprises his role as Dante in the highly anticipated Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Mr. Langdon will be hosting a panel on Sunday on his past and upcoming work.

Amy Singer is a musician and the lead singer of the J-Pop cover-band the "Pink Amys" and will be performing classic and current popular J-Pop favorites! A fun experience for all that are into Japanese pop music!
Performing throughout Southern California and Las Vegas, Miyuki Geta created her own performing art called Geta Dance a dance style which blends elements of Japanese traditional dance, modern dance, and Japanese poetry with acting techniques, to make a dance style that expresses powerful emotional show-stopping theater pieces.
