Christian Slater

Christian Slater Headshot

Actor

Birth Name: Christian Michael Leonard Hawkins

Birth Date: August 18, 1969

Age: 54 years old

Birth Place: New York, New York

The acting career of Christian Slater began when he was just a child, first appearing on the soap opera "One Life to Live" (ABC 1968-2012) at the age of 8 years old; his mother, Mary Jo Slater, was one of the most respected casting agents in Hollywood. His first film role was a few years later in "The Legend of Billie Jean" (1985), which led into an appearance in the Sean Connery-starring "The Name of the Rose" (1986) and most notably, his memorable turn as J.D. in the cult classic black comedy "Heathers" (1988).

The next year, he starred in two more cult classics, the video game-focused "The Wizard" (1989) and skateboarding movie "Gleaming the Cube" (1989). Slater was sidling right into teen heartthrob status at this point, also appearing in "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" (1991), "Young Guns II" (1990), and the Quentin Tarantino-written "True Romance" (1993). The rest of his '90s work is filled with a mixture of notable releases such as "Interview with the Vampire" (1994) and "Broken Arrow" (1996) and box office bombs like "Jimmy Hollywood" (1994) and "Very Bad Things" (1998).

By the time the 2000s rolled around, Slater began to fade into the background more, though he still regularly worked whether it was in short runs on TV shows such as "The West Wing" (NBC 1999-2006) or "Alias" (ABC 2001-06) or in movies such as "3000 Miles to Graceland" (2001) or Emilio Estevez's "Bobby" (2006). While he might not have been in notable roles, Slater was not averse to parody as he appeared as himself on "Curb Your Enthusiasm" (HBO 2000- ), "The Office" (NBC 2005-2013), and "Archer" (FX 2009- ).

His next major role would be a big one, though, as he starred as the title character in the Sam Esmail drama "Mr. Robot" (USA 2015- ), earning a Golden Globe award in the process.
