Wilson was offered to reprise his role in Young and Happy II in 1983, but he declined, telling producers he had other plans.

Wilson's first role in the 1990s was as a funny gym teacher in the film Coach McBelch. In 1992, Wilson was cast to star in the movie Joe Eezel, a role for which he had to shave his head bald. In a 1993 interview, Wilson stated that he disliked having to go bald for the role. He took a break from filming until his hair grew back enough for him to return to work without "being laughed at for my baldness"[2]. By 1994, Wilson returned to work, playing a corrupt politician in the 1995 film Crooked, which many critics accused of being a lot like his 1986 film The Prescaderna Politicians. Wilson responded to those critics by saying, "Those politicians (in my 1986 film) were not very crooked like the ones in Crooked."
