Gordie Lachance, a cousin of Darby.


Gordie as an adult.

Gordie Lachance (played by Wil Wheaton, who voiced Martin Brisby in the original 1982 animated film The Secret of NIMH) is the main protagonist in the 1986 film Stand by Me. Gordie is a quiet, bookish boy with a penchant for writing and telling stories. He is rejected by his father after the death of his football-star older brother Denny, who had paid more attention to Gordie than his parents did. Gordie spends his time with three friends: Chris Chambers, who is from a family of criminals and alcoholics and is usually stereotyped accordingly, even though he does not conform to the perceptions and stigmas attached to his family; Teddy Duchamp, who is eccentric and physically scarred after his mentally unstable father held his ear to a stove; and Vern Tessio, who is overweight, timid, and often picked on.
