Wil Wheaton as Spalding Gray

While reading this interview of Wil Wheaton from Sequential Tart, it struck me. Wil could be the next Spalding Gray. For those who don’t know, Spalding Gray was a fantastic story teller, best known for Swimming to Cambodia. His format for telling stories would fit Wil to a tee.

Wil could do a readings of Just a Geek and distribute it as a DVD. Wil has great timing and pacing that add a lot to his stories. I think many people who bought the book would also buy a video of him performing readings from it. Set him up with a desk, throw in some video clips over his shoulder, and you’ve got a hit. It’s a sure thing.

What do you think Wil?
