Birthday: Aug 18, 1969

Birthplace: New York, USA

Born into a show business family -- father Michael Hawkins is a stage actor and mother Mary Jo Slater is a casting director -- Christian Slater made his acting debut at age eight after his mother cast him in the television soap opera One Life to Live on a lark. The following year Slater was on Broadway starring opposite Dick Van Dyke in The Music Man. Slater would remain on Broadway for at least two more productions. As a youth, Slater attended Manhattan's Professional Children's School. He made his television debut in the movie Living Proof: The Hank Williams Junior Story (1983) and his film debut two years later when he was only 16 in The Legend of Billy Jean. Slater earned some of his first favorable notice starring opposite Sean Connery in The Name of the Rose (1986). He next appeared in Tucker, a Man and His Dream (1988), and more films followed after that, but Slater did not become a star until he co-starred opposite Winona Ryder in the darkly satirical Heathers in which he played an anarchic sociopath. His maniacal over-the-top performance led to comparisons with Jack Nicholson. After Heathers, it looked as if Slater was destined to be typecast into playing lunatic villains or seriously troubled youths. In the latter regard, life seemed to mirror his art.In 1989, he was arrested in West Hollywood for leading the police on a drunken car chase that ended when Slater crashed his car into a telephone pole. While trying to escape the car, he kicked a cop with his cowboy boot and then attempted to flee over a fence. In 1994, he was arrested for taking a gun aboard a plane. In 1997, Slater was arrested for attacking his lover and biting a police officer in the belly while drinking heavily; he was sentenced to spend 90 days in a suburban jail in early 1998, all this just one day after his newest film, Hard Rain, premiered. Shortly after sentencing, Slater admitted that he had also been taking cocaine and heroin at the time. As part of his sentence, he had to serve post-jail time in a drug/alcohol rehab program and attend a year-long program on preventing domestic violence. Despite his personal struggles, Slater has maintained a film career starring as a high school geek with a cool secret life in Pump Up the Volume (1990) to the romantic Bed of Roses (1996) to high-voltage actioners like Broken Arrow (1996). In his 1997 production Julian Po, he gained weight, grew a mustache, and appeared as a suicidal bookkeeper who embezzles money from his company so he can fulfill one final wish. Though subsequent roles in such critically-panned films as 3000 Miles to Graceland, Windtalkers, and Alone in the Dark did little to advance Slater's career, recurring roles in such popular television series' as Aaron Sorkin's The West Wing and J.J. Abrams' Alias offered not only more exposure, but a chance to reestablish himself on the small screen as well. Meanwhile, a promising debut as a secret agent with a duel personality on NBC's My Own Worst Enemy proved a bit of a false start when the network never offered the show a chance to find its legs. Ever resiliant, Slater quicky bounced back with ABC's The Forgotten in 2009 and Fox's Breaking In in 2011, though neither series failed to catch on, leaving the veteran actor to take up arms as a vengeful gunslinger in the 2012 western Dawn Rider, and get caught up in one of history's most notorious blood feud's in Fred Olen Ray's Bad Blood: The Hatfiends and McCoys.

Binx says: Strawberry? You bought strawberry?

Billie Jean says: God, Bink, don't you ever get tired of vanilla?

Binx says: How can they say about us?

Binx says: I was scared.

Billie Jean says: So was I.

Binx says: Why were they shootin' at us?

Binx says: What's this?

Putter says: I think it's chicken.

Binx says: It doesn't taste like chicken.

Ophelia says: When you rich, food ain't supposed to take like what it really is.

Binx says: Hey, get your hand off of that!

Hubie says: What, your sister? Or your fagmobile?

Colonel Gerard Brauchman says: We dont strand a chance against the alien vampire army.

Mark Hunter says: I like the idea that a voice can just go somewhere, uninvited, and just kinda hang out like a dirty thought in a nice clean mind. Maybe a though is like a virus, you know, it can... it can... kill all the healthy thoughts and just take over. That would be serious.

Mark Hunter says: Ok, this is really me now. No more hiding. Listen, we're all worried, we're all in pain. That just comes with having eyes and with having ears. But just remember one thing, it can't get any worse, it can only get better. I mean High School is the bottom. Being a teenager sucks! But that's the point, surviving it is the whole point! Quitting is not going to make you strong, living will. So just hang on and hang in there. You know, I know all about the hating and the sneering. I'm a member of the "why bother" generation myself. But why did I bother to come out here tonight, and why did you? I mean, It's time. It's begins with us, not with politicians, the experts or the teachers but with us. With you and with me. The ones who need it most. I gotta believe, with everything in me, the whole world is longing for healing. Even the trees, the earth itself are crying out for it. You can hear it everywhere. Same kinda healing I desperately needed and I finally feel has begun, with you.

Mark Hunter says: You see I didn't plan it like this. My dumb dad got me this shortwave radio set so I could just talk to my buddies back east. But I couldn't reach anybody. So I just imagined I was talking to nobody, I imagined nobody listening. Maybe I imagined there would be one person out there... And then one day I woke up, and I realized I was never going to be normal, so I said, "Fuck it." I said, "So be it." And Happy Harry Hard-On was born. But I never meant to hurt anyone. I never meant to hurt anyone. I'm sorry Malcolm. I never said, "Don't do it."

Mark Hunter says: I know that all of my horny listeners would love it if I would call up the "eat me, beat me" lady. But no! Because she never encloses her number.

Nora Diniro says: Tough luck, creepoid.

Mark Hunter says: Always the same red paper, the same beautiful black writing. She's probably a lot like me, a legend in her own mind. Hehehehe. But you know what, I bet in real life she's probably not that wild. I bet she's kind of shy like so many of us briskly walking the halls, pretending to be late for some class, pretending to be distracted. Hey, poetry lady, are you really this cool? Are you out there? Are you listening?

Are you listening?

Mark Hunter says: 'Dear Harry, I think you're boring and obnoxious and have a high opinion of yourself.' Course some of you are probably thinking I sent this one to myself. 'I think school is okay if you just look at it right. I mean I like your music, but I really don't see why you can't be cheerful for one second.' I'll tell you since you asked. I just arrived in this stupid suburb. I have no friends, no money, no car, no license. And even if I did have a license all I can do is drive out to some stupid mall. Maybe if I'm lucky play some fucking video games, smoke a joint and get stupid. You see, there's nothing to do anymore. Everything decent's been done. All the great themes have been used up. Turned into theme parks. So I don't really find it exactly cheerful to be living in the middle of a totally, like, exhausted decade where there's nothing to look forward to and no one to look up to.

Mark Hunter says: Oh no, not again. The creature stirs. Oh God, I think it's gonna to be a gusher. This is the sixth time in an hour.

Mark Hunter says: Tonight we have number twelve of one hundred things to do with your body when you're all alone. Now, are you ready for the incredible sound of Hard Harry coming on his own face?

Mark Hunter says: Do you ever get the feeling that everything in America is completely fucked up?

Mark Hunter says: They say I'm disturbed. Well, of course I'm disturbed. I mean, we're all disturbed. And if we're not, why not? Doesn't this blend of blindness and blandness want to make you do something crazy? Then why not do something crazy? It makes a helluva lot more sense than blowing your fucking brains out.

Mark Hunter says: In real life I could be that anonymous nerd sitting across from you in chem lab, staring at you so hard. Then when you turn around he tries to smile, but the smile just comes out all wrong. You just think, how pathetic. Then he just looks away, and never looks back at you again.

Mark Hunter says: Rise up in the cafeteria and stab them with your plastic forks.

Mark Hunter says: I'm sick of being ashamed. I don't mind being dejected and rejected, but I'm not going to be ashamed about it. At least pain is real. I mean, you look around and you see nothing is real, but at least the pain is real.

Martha Hunter says: We think you should see a psychiatrist.

Mark Hunter says: Is it that obvious?

Mark Hunter says: We're all worried, we're all in pain. That just comes with having eyes and having ears. But just remember one thing - it can't get any worse, it can only get better. High school is the bottom, being a teenager sucks, but that's the point, surviving it is the whole point. Quitting is not going to make you stronger, living will. So just hang on and hang in there.

Mark Hunter says: You hear about some kid who did something stupid, something desperate; what possessed him? How could he do such a terrible thing? Well, it's really quite simple, actually. Consider the life of a teenager - you have parents, teachers telling you what to do, you have movies, magazines and TV telling you what to do, but you know what you have to do. Your job, your purpose is to get accepted, get a cute girlfriend, think up something great to do with the rest of your life. What if you're confused and can't imagine a career? What if you're funny looking and can't get a girlfriend? You see, no-one wants to hear it. But the terrible secret is that being young is sometimes less fun than being dead.

Mark Hunter says: Feeling screwed up at a screwed up time in a screwed up place does not necessarily make you screwed up.

Mark Hunter says: Now I'm depressed. Now I feel like killing myself, but luckly I'm too depressed to bother.

Mark Hunter says: Remember my dear, I can smell a lie like a fart in a car.

Mark Hunter says: I mean, if I knew any thing about love, I would be out there making it, instead of sitting in here talking to you guys.

Mark Hunter says: I mean, if I knew any thing about love, I would be out there making it instead of sitting in here talking to you guys.

Mark Hunter says: They think you're moody, make 'em think you're crazy. Make 'em think you might snap. They say you got attitude, you show 'em some real attitude.

Mark Hunter says: Just look inside yourself and you'll see me waving up at you naked wearing only a cock ring.

Mark Hunter says: Talk hard, I like that. It's like a dirty thought in a nice clean mind.

Mark Hunter says: I was looking for some stamps.

Brian Hunter says: yeah I have some right here. Are you gonna send a letter to a friend back east?

Mark Hunter says: No I was thinking about sending away for an inflatable date.

Henri Young says: You don't know what you're talking about, because you don't know what it's like!

James Stamphill says: What's like?

Henri Young says: Alcatraz! I mean where do you think they're going send me those ten years they're talking about!They're going to send me back to Alcatraz those ten years they're talking about!

James Stamphill says: Henry, when it's over you'll be alive! You'll be able to take care of your sister..

Henri Young says: I'm the one that's got to do the time, not you! And I can't do it! I can't! It's not worth it!

James Stamphill says: The federal guideline regarding solitary confinements states that the maximum stay for an inmate shall not exceed nineteen days.

James Stamphill says: Definition of rehabilitate: To restore to a state of physical, mental and moral health through treatment and training.

Frank Lyons says: I have all the characteristics of a human being: blood, flesh, skin, hair; but not a single, clear, identifiable emotion, except for greed and disgust. Something horrible is happening inside of me and I don't know why. My nightly bloodlust has overflown into my days. I feel lethal, on the verge of frenzy. I think my mask of sanity is about to slip.

Frank Lyons says: You see, my friend, I can't help it if I'm driven by the motives of a stronger youth.

Wylie says: Not so, Frank. I feel as though the harpies call me to their den of lies and hatred.

Quinn says: Too true, my dear. Now I shall pull back the curtains of deceit on the foul beast called loneliness.

J.D. says: The only place different social types can genuinely get along with each other is in heaven.

Louis says: "Yes...but you needn't be concerned with that now."
