You'll have a chance to meet and get a photo with Charlie Sheen next month.

The Two and a Half Men star will be in town May 6-7 for Comic Con – a big entertainment convention. In addition to posing for pics and signing autographs, the actor, writer and producer will conduct an interactive fan Q&A at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

An autograph will cost you from $60 to $80 depending on what he's signing. Which is nearly half of what The Doctor's signature costs. A photo will set you back $75.

Comic Con says Sheen has starred in more than 45 feature films, including Wall Street and Platoon.

In 2015, Sheen announced he was HIV positive and became an advocate for HIV awareness and treatment.

And soon, he'll have a new movie out called Nine Eleven. He stars alongside Whoopi Goldberg in the film about a group of five people trapped in the World Trade Center's North Tower on Sept. 11, 2001. That's set to release later this year.

Who else will be at Comic Con?

Well, Doctor Who stars Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman will be there. So will Star Trek's Nichelle Nichols, and The Incredible Hulk's Lou Ferrigno. More names will be announced closer to the convention.

According to a news release, Wizard World Comic Con events bring together thousands of pop culture fans. It's also "the place" for cosplay and fan costume contests.

The convention begins Friday, May 5 at 4 p.m. and runs through Sunday. Click here to find additional hours and special guest info.

You can get your tickets here. Kids 10 and under are admitted free with a paid adult.
