Planet Comicon 2014 Guest: Wil Wheaton

Wil WheatonWil Wheaton’s acting career began with acclaimed roles in Stand By Me and Toy Soldiers. He followed that with his role as Wesley Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation and opposite Robin Williams in Flubber.

Wil is much more than just an actor; he’s an author, blogger, voice actor, widely-followed original Twitter user, and a champion of geek culture. 

Wil currently splits his time between acting and writing. He currently makes recurring appearance as a “delightfully evil version” of himself on The Big Bang Theory. He has recently appeared as serial killer ‘Floyd Hansen’ on Criminal Minds, comic book publisher Miles Sklar on NUMB3RS, as the voice of the Silver Age Blue Beetle on Batman: The Brave and the Bold, and as Axis of Anarchy leader Fawkes in Felicia Day’s smash hit webseries The Guild.

Wil Wheaton on TableTopAs an author, he’s published several acclaimed books, including: Just A Geek, Dancing Barefoot, The Happiest Days of Our Lives, and Memories of the Future Volume 1, a humorous and nostalgic episode guide of the first half of the first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Wil’s blog was chosen by C|Net for inclusion in their 100 most influential blogs. In the 2008 weblog awards, Wil was voted the “Best Celebrity Blogger,” and in 2009 Forbes named him the 14th most influential web celebrity. This is all amusing to Wil, who doesn’t think of himself as a celebrity, but is instead, “just this guy, you know?”
