Biography

A willowy, doe-eyed actor, Wil Wheaton has convincingly played smart and sensitive youths in films and TV since age nine. Wheaton began his career appearing in commercials at age seven, gained respect with an effective starring role in Rob Reiner's "Stand By Me" (1986), and achieved celebrity as Wesley Crusher, budding boy genius and eventual acting ensign, on "Star Trek: The Next Generation" (syndicated, 1987-94). He left his post as a regular on the bridge of the Enterprise in 1990 to attend the Starfleet Academy and returned periodically until meeting his cosmic destiny in the show's final season. Wheaton began concentrating on features in the early 1990s with limited success in the absurd but entertaining "Toy Soldiers" (1991), as a troubled preppie cadet turned terrorist fighter, and in the talky, stagy "December" (1991), as a thoughtful pacifist reacting to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
