It's never too late to get into Comic Con.

Burt Reynolds made first-ever Comic Con convention appearance on Saturday.

The actor, 79, participated in an audience Q&A at the Wizard World Comic Con in Philadelphia.

"I think it's a good time to find out what it's all about," Reynolds told the Philadelphia Inquirer earlier this week. "I always enjoy talking to fans and I'm usually very pleased with their curiosity about my career, what I'm doing, what I'm not doing, and why I'm not doing more."



The Boogie Nights star was photographed arriving at the event wearing rose-colored glasses and a black velvet blazer, relying on a cane to walk.

Reynolds's second memoir, But Enough About Me, hits shelves in November 2015, and delves into his many famous loves, including Sally Field. The actor told Comic Con attendees that the book will focus on the people he worked with throughout his illustrious career.

"When you write a book like this, you have to tell the whole thing, and there are days when everything isn't wonderful and there were people who I thought were asses," the actor told the Inquirer. "I'm having a lot of fun, but it's beginning to look a little bit like the dictionary."

The star said that But Enough About Me will cover and "reminisce" about his illustrious career, starting with his first TV series in 1959.

Earlier this year, Reynolds exclusively opened up to PEOPLE about the book, specifically the coverage of his high-profile former relationships. 

"I wanted to set the record straight," Reynolds, 79, told PEOPLE in February. "Not only about my relationships with Dinah [Shore], Sally and Loni [Anderson], but also about the things that people don't know about me."
