Growing up, he was a huge fan of the original Star Trek (1966) series.
Maintains the active wilwheaton.net, one of the most frequented fansites on the Internet.
His first major film role was as a child playing Gordie LaChance in Stand by Me (1986), before taking the role of Wesley Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987). He later returned to the Star Trek franchise by lending his voice to Star Trek (2009). This film featured Anton Yelchin as Pavel Chekov. Not only are the characters similar, but Yelchin's career parallels that of Wheaton's in another way: he too got his first big role as a child in Hearts in Atlantis (2001), which was also based on a Stephen King story.
Regained a decent measure of fame after launching his own website, WilWheaton.net, which led to a number of voice acting roles and a new career as a blogger and an author--he has written three memoirs; "Dancing Barefoot" (Monolith Press - 2003), "Just a Geek" (O'Reilly Media - 2004) and "The Happiest Days of Our Lives" (Monolith Press - 2007). All three books are based on his blog.
Has played as part of the PokerStars.com team in the 2005 World Series of Poker.
He is a posting member of the internet communities Slashdot (slashdot.org) and Reddit (reddit.com). He does interviews on a regular basis and participates in discussion. He also answers private messages.
Wil is a life-long fan of the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team, and he is also an avid player of video games, which lead to his voice-over role in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (2004).
When I saw Galaxy Quest (1999), I remembered how much fun I used to have at conventions, and I missed it. I missed the interaction with the fans. I missed the chance to tell stories about my life on TNG... but mostly, I missed the sex. The hot, Klingon-forehead-wearing fansex.
I loved Galaxy Quest (1999). I thought it was brilliant satire, not only of Trek, but of fandom in general. The only thing I wish they had done was cast me in it, and have me play a freaky fanboy who keeps screaming at the actor who played "the kid" about how awful it was that there was a kid on the spaceship. Alas.
[From blog posting about a "Shark Week" show, August 2013] Discovery Channel betrayed [its audience's] trust during its biggest viewing week of the year. Discovery Channel isn't run by stupid people, and this was not some kind of a mistake. Someone made a deliberate choice to present a work of fiction that is more suited for the Syfy channel as a truthful and factual documentary. That is disgusting.
I would love to find myself in a position where I have to decide, "Gosh, do I want to be on a series?".
I've done a lot of geeky things in my life, but I think the geekiest of all was my first effort to build props and cosplay, when I was about twelve years-old.
My wife is the most awesome person in the universe. She's made this experience much less miserable for me, with her compassion, patience and understanding.
Some ISPs are blocking all BitTorrent traffic, because BitTorrent can be used to share files in a piratical way. Hollywood lobbying groups are trying to pass laws which would force ISPs to block or degrade BitTorrent traffic, too. Personally, I think this is like closing down freeways because a bank robber could use them to get away.
When you get a group of kids together, especially boys, the psychology of those kids requires that they find a weak kid or a sensitive kid or a soft kid.
One of the things that drives me crazy is the belief in Hollywood that bittorrent exists solely for stealing things.
People who don't want to give a creator money are never going to give a creator money.
When you say a 'former child star', you may as well say 'failed child star'.
Even when I was little and going on auditions, it was clear who was there because they wanted to be there, and who was there because their stage parents were making them be there. There was a major difference.
I guess I'm up to about 70% of normal, which is a real relief. My doctor gave me clearance to go out in public again, so I've been able to go to the store and help out a little bit around the house.
I spent a lot of my childhood not fitting in, in a lot of different ways.
If the world were a bar, America would currently be the angry drunk waving around a loaded gun. Yeah, the other people in the bar may be afraid of him, but they sure as hell don't respect him.
Even when I was little, people would always ask me if I wanted to be a movie star, and I would always say, "No, I just want to be an actor."
[on his frequent appearances on The Big Bang Theory (2007) as "himself"] I'm not really a jerk but I have fun playing one.
Fun fact: I hate dancing. It makes me feel self conscious, stupid, uncoordinated, and like a complete idiot. Because I don't particularly enjoy feeling that way, I probably dance once a year, to only one song, and only to make Anne happy when she wants to dance with her husband at whatever thing we've gone to where they have organized dancing.
[on the death of Majel Barrett Roddenberry, December 19, 2008] We always had fun when we were working on Next Generation, but when Majel was on the set, it was a party.
(On his teenage years) I was such a geek that if I could go back in time, I would kick my own ass.
[Interview magazine, 2005] I am a huge geek. And Star Trek was a haven for geeks.
