Actor and self-proclaimed geek Orlando Jones is the latest addition of geek-connecting App Cosmunity.
Cosmunity has a new member with them, and it’s none other than the ‘King of Fandom’ Orlando Jones! The actor, best known for his roles in Sleepy Hollow and American Gods, has joined the app as chief strategy officer.
“Throughout my career, I’ve worked to connect people of all walks of life, through comedy and entertainment, because I love the passion of the fans. That’s what Cosmunity is all about – connecting passionate fans with each other in a way that’s never been done before,” said Jones. “We want to bring the excitement of a convention into the palm of your hand – just because the con ends doesn’t mean the fun has to.”
Cosmunity has seen plenty of success ever since it launched in February earlier this year. The app recently completed a $600,00 seed funding round, and also sponsored Silicon Valley Comic Con at the end of April. Jones’ addition is expected to help Cosmunity keep growing by reaching a wider audience. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to have Orlando join the Cosmunity team. No one is more plugged in to what the fans want than the ‘King of Fandom’ himself,” said Cole Egger, Cosmunity co-founder, and CEO. “Orlando’s knowledge of the many aspects of fandom, as well as his passion and enthusiasm for the community, will be a tremendous asset for Cosmunity as we continue our mission of connecting fans across the world.”
