Note to self –
When you get an opportunity to wish Wil Wheaton a happy birthday, be sure not to mention that he’s beginning to look like Jonathan Frakes. Although he and Mr. Frakes are not feuding or anything, Wil does not like to be compared to what he considers a “rival.”
Especially if your comment translates into – in Wil’s words – you’re gaining weight and getting pretty scruffy there.
Still, he’s a pretty cool guy and was appreciative that I wished him a happy birthday 3 days in advance. 3 days before the endless crush of obsessed fans start filling his mailbox and email with tons of birthday weirdness.
Wil Wheaton – doesn’t afraid of anything.
