Actor
    (June 29, 1969- )
    Born in New York City, New York
    Best known for portraying Wyatt Donnelly in ‘Weird Science’ (1985)
    Also appeared in ‘Daniel’ (1983), ‘The Wild Life’ (1984), ‘The Chocolate War’ (1988) and ‘Journey to the Center of the Earth’ (1989)
    Recurring role as Andy McAllister in ‘Superboy’ (1989-91)
    He did not tell his future wife about his acting career until he found out that ‘The Chocolate War’ was one of her favorite movies.
    One of his few post-1991 acting gigs was guesting in an episode of ‘The Goldbergs’ based on ‘Weird Science.’ (2017)
    He refers to himself on Twitter as ‘that kid from Weird Science (the other one).’
    His answer to one of the questions most asked of him (namely, ‘What was it like to kiss Kelly LeBrock?’): ‘The truth is, that it's weird to be 15 and kissing a woman who is 30, who wouldn't be kissing you unless she had to. It's weird in all kinds of ways and not really that great. But that's not the answer the guys want.’
    He won a dance scholarship to the School of American Ballet when he was six.
    Judie Aronson, who portrayed his girlfriend in ‘Weird Science,’ noted, ‘All the other boys on the set were extremely wild and carefree and crazy. Ilan was very well-bred, well-mannered.’
    He earned a doctorate in medieval studies and became a history professor at Texas A&M.
    He said about giving up acting for academia, ‘Choosing to do something I love is a valid choice. I’m happy doing what I’m doing.’
