LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts. 
Still living in New York, Slater auditioned for the role of Binx Davey for the film, "The Legend of Billie Jean" (1985).  He was cast in the part and this helped boost his career that in 1987 he chose to leave high school early and he relocated to Los Angeles, California in pursuit of a career as a film actor.
It did not take long to get cast in the film, "The Name of the Rose" (1986) which opened the door for him for his first starring film role, "Heathers" (1988).  As his career progressed, Slater was seen on the big screen in such films as, "Robin Hood Prince of Thieves", (1991), "Interview with the Vampire": The Vampire Chronicles"(1994), "Pump up the Volume" (1990), "Broken Arrow" (1996), "True Romance"(1993) and "Hard Rain" (1998).
Along with film roles he also made a number of television appearances throughout his career in such series a, "West Wing", "Alias", "The Forgotten" and "Robot Chicken".  Not only has Slater built up a decent resume as a stage, television and film actor, he has also added a number of voice over projects to his resume such as in, "FernGully: The Last Rainforest", "The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius" and "Dinosaur Planet".    

Soon to release in 2012 are a number of films such as, "El Gringo" (2012), "Freaky Deaky" (2012), "Bullet to the Head" (2012), "Dawn Rider" (2012) and "Wake" (2012).
