In Stacy Cochran's coming-of-age romance "Boys" (1996), Wiggins had a slightly larger role (and finally left Texas behind), as one of Lukas Haas' New England boarding school friends who helps hide an on-the-lam Winona Ryder.Wiggins has become involved with Anathema Enterprises, an art and research collective based in Austin, TX, where he has...

Wiggins has become involved with Anathema Enterprises, an art and research collective based in Austin, TX, where he has acted, has maintained the organization's Web site and has overseen his own online magazine UNHAPPY found at www.fringeware.com/anathema/unhappy.html.
