Wil Wheaton was eight years old when he got his first showbiz break, appearing with Bill Cosby in a Jell-O pudding commercial.  But he was made famous by the part of ensign Wesley Crusher in the weekly TV series Star Trek: The Next Generation, a role he played from 1987 to 1990.

In 1996 he played the part of Lazarus in the film Mr Stitch, which stared Rutger Hauer.  This was made as a pilot for a TV show, but it did not take off.  At this time Wil was trying to show that he was a better actor then when he was in Star Trek.  The film was shot in France which Wil enjoyed.
