Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

Actor. (b. Aug. 18, 1969, New York City.) Much has been made of handsome young Slater's uncanny mimicry of Jack Nicholson in several of his movie performances. The observation is relevant, but not especially important: Slater has a commanding, charismatic presence all his own. The son of a casting agent (who says he was first spotted on the New York TV institution "The Joe Franklin Show"), he debuted in The Legend of Billie Jean (1985), and appeared in such other films as The Name of the Rose, Twisted (both 1986), Tucker: The Man and His Dream (1988), Gleaming the Cube and The Wizard (both 1989), but he made his first real impact as the sardonic, murderous (and Nicholson-esque) highschooler in Heathers (1989). The next year he collected good reviews for Pump Up the Volume (1990), starring as a pirate radio deejay who touches the lives of the local misunderstood youth. In much the same way, he quickly became something of a teen idol in real life. He appeared in Tales From the Darkside: The Movie joined the cast of Young Guns II (both also 1990), costarred as Lucky Luciano in the urban "young-guns" saga Mobsters and added youth appeal to Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (both 1991), as Will Scarlett. (He also did a cameo in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country in 1991.) His first solo starring vehicle, Kuffs (1992), was a dog, but he fared considerably better in Untamed Heart and True Romance (both 1993); recent credits include Jimmy Hollywood, Interview With the Vampire (both 1994), and Murder in the First (1995).
