Mickey Rooney and 16 other actors will attend the 2006 Twilight Zone Convention, August 12-13, in the Grand Ballroom of New Jersey's Hilton Hasbrouck Heights, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. This will be his first-ever appearance at an East Coast collectors' show.

Rooney gave a tour de force solo performance in the 1963 "Twilight Zone" episode, "The Last Night of a Jockey." Written by Rod Serling, the creator of the 1959-1964 Emmy Award winning series, it is the only “Twilight Zone” episode in which only one actor appears, either in image or voice.
