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.

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. (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.”
