Hi, I'm Wil Wheaton. AMA about Tabletop, The Wil Wheaton Project, The Big Bang Theory, Homebrewing, and, of course, Rampart.
Richard William "Wil" Wheaton III is an American actor, blogger and writer, known for his portrayals of Wesley Crusher on the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation, Gordie Lachance in the film Stand by Me, Joey Trotta in Toy Soldiers, and for his recurring role as a fictionalized version of himself on the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory.
I co-created, produce, and host Tabletop, which is a webseries where we play tabletop games. I write, produce, and host The Wil Wheaton Project, a comedy show that's like Talk Soup for geeks, which premieres on the Syfy channel May 27th. I occasionally appear as a mildly evil version of myself on The Big Bang Theory (and I'm on this week's episode), I make my own beer, and I've never seen Rampart.
I'm here for about an hour, so ask me anything and I'll do my best to answer your questions.
EDIT 2pm PDT: I have to leave Geek & Sundry and head home. I'll come back in a little while and do my best to answer whatever you guys upvote the most.
EDIT 4PM: Okay, back for a little bit.
EDIT 7PM: Well, I think I've run out of energy, and I still have some actual work to do before it's beer:30. Thank you to everyone who participated in this today. I hope you enjoyed it.
Before I go: please watch The Wil Wheaton Project when it premieres on May 27th on Syfy. I know that a lot (possibly the majority) of people who will enjoy it are probably cord-cutters, and I don't know if the network will take online views into account when deciding if they want to give us more than 12 episodes. The more people who watch it, the more likely it is that we'll get to do it for a full year. We're working really hard on it, and we think it's pretty entertaining.
That's all. Thank you.
And until next time ... PLAY MORE GAMES!!
