Actor Wil Wheaton, who played Wesley Crusher in Star Trek: The Next Generation, has announced on his blog that he will be guest-starring in episode 403 of Eureka titled ''All the Rage.''
I love Wheaton and am always happy to know when he gets an acting gig. He also happens to be a very talented and funny writer.
The Star Trek veteran also put up SyFy's press release on his blog:
Actor, author and blogger Wil Wheaton of the popular television series Star Trek: The Next Generation and the classic film Stand By Me, has signed for a guest starring appearance on the 4th season of Eureka, one of Syfy’s most popular original series. The new season is slated to return to Syfy on Friday, July 9 at 9:00PM ET/PT.
In episode 403 of Eureka titled “All The Rage,” sci-fi fan favorite Wheaton plays the brilliant Dr. Isaac Parrish, head of the Non-Lethal Weapons Lab at Global Dynamics. Parrish’s dry wit and superior attitude make him a thorn in Fargo’s (Neil Grayston) side — with potentially disastrous consequences. The episode featuring Wheaton is scheduled to air on Friday, July 23rd.
Wheaton goes on to talk about how he is preparing to play the role of a scientist. He also promises to share his filming experiences on his blog. [WWdN: In Exile]
