Wil Wheaton wore a Star Trek uniform to a screening of Star Wars
Wil Wheaton’s got jokes! In a super meta moment on Thursday, the actor dared wear a Star Trek uniform to a screening of Star Wars: The Last Jedi at the Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles.
The actor, who played Wesley Crusher from 1987 to 1994 on Star Trek: The Next Generation, shared a photo of his costume on Twitter saying, “Oh, and I went in costume for the first time ever, because I am an adult and I get to decide what that means.”
In 2015, Wheaton appeared as himself on The Big Bang Theory, and during one episode, he took in a Star Wars movie while wearing a Star Trek uniform. His choice of attire attracted some hecklers and Wheaton delivered the unforgettable line, “Live long and suck it!” (Watch the clip here.)
No need to worry if the gimmick was ill-intentioned: Wheaton had nothing but good things to say about the latest Star Wars installment. “I loved #TheLastJedi! It hit all the right notes for me,” he said on Twitter. “Seeing it in the Chinese Theater, surrounded by my fellow nerds was glorious. The Force was with us.”
