Wheaton On 'Star Trek'

Star Trek has always been a part of Wil Wheaton's life and he is still fond of it.

As reported by geeksofdoom.com, Wheaton would have been glad to have taken a role in the new Star Trek movie. "Yeah, it would really depend on the role. I’m a huge science fiction fan and I am enormous Star Trek fan as well."

Wheaton went on to explain his lifelong love of Star Trek. "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, y’know, in a lot in interviews. There was a time when I was a teenager where I kind of pretended that I didn’t like it because we had sibling rivalry with the original series, but the truth is my entire life I’ve been all about Star Trek."

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 wouldn’t be interested in going back and playing the same character," he said. "I kind of feel like I’ve 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."
