Welling is also known for his time on season three of Lucifer as Marcus Pierce. Currently, Rosenbaum hosts the Inside of You podcast, where he invites his fellow celebrities to speak candidly about their flaws and everything else that makes all of us human.

It wouldn’t be a Pop Culture Con without a little something for everyone! Michael Nesmith and Micky Dolenz of the 1960’s rock band, The Monkees, will be attending as well. Along with being a touring band, they also gained such popularity that they starred in their own feature film.
