Wheaton On 'Star Trek'
 
<i>Star Trek</i> has always been a part of <font color=yellow>Wil Wheaton's</font> life and he is still fond of it.<p>As reported by <A class="link" HREF="http://geeksofdoom.com">geeksofdoom.com</A>, Wheaton would have been glad to have taken a role in the new <i>Star Trek</i> movie. "Yeah, it would really depend on the role. Iím a huge science fiction fan and I am enormous Star Trek fan as well."<p>Wheaton went on to explain his lifelong love of <i>Star Trek</i>. "LeVar Burton and I were the two cast members on Next Generation who were kind of proud of our love of the original Star Trek and we kind of talked about it, yíknow, in a lot in interviews. There was a time when I was a teenager where I kind of pretended that I didnít like it because we had sibling rivalry with the original series, but the truth is my entire life Iíve been all about Star Trek."<p>But Wheaton wouldn't want to reprise his role of Wesley Crusher. "So, the opportunity to be in Star Trek like the new one is absolutely tantalizing, but I honestly wouldnít be interested in going back and playing the same character," he said. "I kind of feel like Iíve done everything that I can do with him. If I get a chance to go back and do something different, I think it would be really cool and really fun."<p>To read more of the interview, including Wheaton's other projects and interests, head to the article located <A class="link" HREF="http://geeksofdoom.com/2008/05/29/conversations-with-god-wil-wheaton/">here</A>.<center></center>
