Wil Wheaton first entered the public eye in 1986 with his critically acclaimed performance in Rob Reiner's Stand By Me. He spent his teenage years on the starship Enterprise as a series regular on Star Trek: The Next Generation. Since leaving TNG, Wil has explored a number of different career options. In 1993, Wil put everything he had in a storage locker at Los Angeles Union Station, and tried life as a hobo, riding the rails across the US.

He settled in Florida in early 1995, where he found work at The Waffle House, on route 90. Wheaton had found his calling, it seemed, until a tragic accident known only as "the pigs-in-a-blanket-fiasco" drove him out of the Waffle House, and, ultimately, out of Florida completely. Heartbroken and disillusioned, Wheaton returned to Los Angeles, and reclaimed his place in the spotlight by writing clever biographies for former child actors.

Wil is currently a writer and performer with the ACME Comedy Theatre, and was recently called "rather remarkable" by the LA Weekly. Upcoming roles include the romantic lead in the dark comedy "Jane White is Sick and Twisted" and a guest starring lead on PAX TV's "Twice in a Lifetime".
