'Weird Science' Star Ilan Mitchell-Smith: Where Is He Now?
Ilan Mitchell-Smith shot to fame as nerd Wyatt in the 1985 John Hughes film “Weird Science,” and went on to land a role in the TV show “Superboy” (1989 to 1991).
Where is he now? Ilan's a professor!
Mitchell-Smith left acting in the early '90s after a stint on “Silk Stalkings” and pursued an education. He earned a BA in Medieval Studies at UC Davis and his MA in Medieval Studies at Fordham University.
The former actor, who describes himself on Twitter as “that kid from Weird Science (the other one),” continued in Medieval Studies at Texas A&M University, earning a Ph.D.
Dr. Mitchell-Smith is currently a Professor of Medieval Literature in the English department at California State University Long Beach.
Ilan has two children, Asher, 14, and Eloise, 16, with wife Susannah Demaree.
