There is no greater time to be a geek in America than today. This is their moment, their era, their generation!
It may be credited to years and many attempts to paint a different picture of geeks and, more importantly, the emergence to popularity of the many geeks that proved to be owning the world. You have owners of google, facebook, twitter, wordpress, deviant art, to name a few that are multi millionaires.
These are true blue geeks and if you come and think about it, they have to power to know – in scaringly great detail – every person in the world who logs on. From their names, down to their porn collection.
Now, that is truly the closes we will ever get to a superpower.
10. Adam and Jamie of MythBusters
Played by: Adam and Jamie
What Makes Him Rock: They have the worst sense of humor in the history of civilization, they have the worst fashion taste, they are old and balding, they are nerds to the deepest of their bones and they are completely authentic.
That’s why they are cool. Even before they show, Adam and Jamie have been working as special effects guru in Hollywood. Experimenting how to blow up stuff have always been their cup of tea so when you see them jumping for joy after doing what they do on Mythbusters, you feel their sincerity and honesty.
You don’t get any more geek than that.
9. Hiro Nakamura of Heroes
Played by: Masi Oka
What Makes Him Rock: Hiro is the complete package. The the geek’s geek, the nerd’s nerd. He was the most pathetically ordinary dude in Japan believing he has superpowers.
I see myself in him, except his belief came true. Whereas I… am still writing this blog.
8. Chuck Bartowski of Chuck
Played by: Zachary Levi
What Makes Him Rock: When your brain can literally download, storing and process information, you become a… GOD NERD.
7. Larry Fleinhardt of Numb3rs
Played by: Peter MacNicol
What Makes Him Rock: I think he is the best nerd-role actor of all time, hmmm? His stint on Ally McBeal was so convincing I can’t see him in any other role. Then he becames Cal Tech Larry and took awkwardness beyond belief. I never thought being awkward could be so cool.
6. Steve Urkel of Family Matters
What Makes Him/Her Rock: Steve He was the guy everyone loved to hate. Another example of a geek in love with a girl much “cooler,” but he used his genius to create an alter ego that is much smoother than he was. Now, that’s applied science.
