What ever happened to Christian Slater?
He has a new show and it's awesome! (Trust us on this.)
(SPOT.ph) If you grew up watching '80s movies, then the name Christian Slater will definitely ring a bell. You'll likely remember him from one of his most popular roles: The psychopathic anarchist "J.D." in the 1989 film, Heathers.
He followed it with roles in films like Pump Up the Volume, True Romance, and Interview With a Vampire. He also guest-starred in a number of familiar TV shows, such as Archer and Entourage. He sort of fell off people's radars for a bit, but now, he returns to TV with a new, critically acclaimed techno-thriller called Mr. Robot.
The show revolves around an anti-social cyber-security engineer (and secret vigilante hacker) named Elliot (Rami Malek) who is recruited by the mysterious leader of an underground hacker group (Slater) to destroy a massive company that the former is paid to protect. Once again, Christian returns to what he does best—playing a charismatic and rebellious criminal-slash-anti-hero.
If the plot isn't enough to convince you, Mr. Robot set the record for having a perfect, 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes for each episode of the season. For context, Season 1 of True Detective only has an overall 85% rating, while Game of Thrones in its entirety has a 94% score.
