Roger Wilson (born October 8, 1958) is an American actor.

Career[edit]

Wilson appeared in the first two Porky's movies and Thunder Alley.[citation needed]

Wilson wrote screenplays for producers including Steve Tisch, Penny Marshall, and Sharon Stone.[citation needed]

Wilson briefly taught screenwriting classes in New York City in the mid-2000s.[citation needed]

Wilson was the lead singer in the New York-based band Num in the 1990s.[citation needed]

Wilson was also a member of the New York-based band Born Again Baldwins from mid-2008 until the end of 2009.

Early life and education[edit]

He attended Woodberry Forest School and graduated in 1975 with Marvin Bush, brother of former President George W. Bush.[citation needed] Both of his parents died young and Roger inherited a considerable estate as a teenager.[citation needed]

Personal life[edit]

Wilson was married to Estee Lauder model Shaun Casey from the late 1970s to 1983.[citation needed]

After his divorce, he became supermodel Christy Turlington's first serious boyfriend at age 18.[citation needed] They dated from 1987-1993.[citation needed] Turlington told Cosmopolitan magazine and Dennis Miller, when he had a brief, late-night talk show, that she and Wilson were married.[citation needed] However, it was a spiritual, and not a legal ceremony.[citation needed] Wilson is the one who introduced Turlington to yoga and she moved to California briefly to live with him. Turlington had his initials and a rose tattooed on her ankle, which she later removed.[citation needed] Turlington and Wilson broke up in 1993 and she began to date actor Christian Slater for a few weeks.[citation needed]

Wilson later dated Elizabeth Berkley from Saved by the Bell in the late 1990s.[citation needed] In 2000, Wilson got in a fight with some of actor Leonardo DiCaprio's friends and a multimillion-dollar lawsuit was filed against the actor for encouraging his entourage to inflict bodily harm on Roger.[citation needed]

Wilson now splits his time between New York and Louisiana working in real estate development.[citation needed]
