Profile Bio Text
Roger Wilson (born 1958) is an American actor in movies and television, notably the first two Porky's movies and Thunder Alley.
He attended Woodberry Forest School and graduated in 1975 with Marvin Bush, brother of former President George W. Bush. Both of his parents died young and Roger inherited a considerable estate as a teenager.
Roger was married to Estee Lauder model Shaun Casey from the late 1970s to 1983.
After his divorce, he became supermodel Christy Turlington's first serious boyfriend at age 18. They dated from 1987-1993. Christy told Cosmopolitan magazine and Dennis Miller, when he had a brief, late-night talk show, that she and Roger were married. However, it was a spiritual, and not a legal ceremony. Roger is the one who introduced Christy to yoga and she moved to California briefly to live with him. Christy had his initials and a rose tattooed on her ankle, which she later removed. Christy and Roger broke up in 1993 and she began to date actor Christian Slater for a few weeks.
Roger later dated Elizabeth Berkley from Saved by the Bell in the late 1990s. In 2000, he got in a fight with some of actor Leonardo DiCaprio's friends and a multi-million dollar lawsuit was filed against the actor and his entourage.
Roger became a bartender at Phillipe in East Hampton, NY. He is scheduled to be the manager of the Hollywood, CA location when it opens in September, 2009.
