James Wolk might be able to stop zoo animals from attacking humans all over the world, but he won’t be able to control himself if he runs into the cast of Star Wars while in San Diego for this year’s Comic-Con.

“I’m going to be very excited,” the Zoo star said at the Entertainment Weekly Lounge at Comic-Con. “I’m just going to smile weirdly at them across the way, cry and then walk away.”

Wolk, who also played Bob Benson on Mad Men, says he grew up watching Star Wars. But his Zoo costar Nora Arnezeder? “Not really,” she said. 

Zoo, which is based on James Patterson’s book, kicked off June 30 on CBS. The cast told EW viewers will soon understand why the animals in the show are acting out.

Watch the entire cast discuss what they geek out over, filming Zoo and which animals they’re scared of in real life.

Zoo airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
