Wentworth Miller - Michael Scofield: Prison Break??
Posted: 6 years, 10 months ago at Nov 9 17:12
I'd love to know what your definition of a geek and/or a nerd is. :-)
Posted: 6 years, 10 months ago at Nov 9 17:19
How about Barton Fink?
Posted: 6 years, 7 months ago at Feb 4 12:37
Maybe Jake Gyllenhaal in Zodiac?
Posted: 6 years, 2 months ago at Jul 3 1:19
i don't know many of these, but i must find some geeks or nerds attractive--they are usually so much more humble than jocks and executives---that can be a plus.

I don't think there is a single geeky or nerdy thing about Bruce Wayne.

He didn't design the suit either.
Posted: 6 years, 1 month ago at Aug 23 23:03
Michael Cera in pretty much every movie he's in.
Posted: 6 years, 1 month ago at Aug 24 18:07
Juno is a geek/nerd?! o.O
And how do you forget Keanu Reeves, as Neo, in Matrix?
Posted: 5 years, 11 months ago at Nov 1 3:04
Ator: Chris Owen;

Chuck Sherman, dos 3 primeiros American Pie (1999-2001-2003)

Attitudes geek: gosta de ficção-científica e sempre fala sobre sexo, mencionando em 3° pessoa;

Frase geek de impacto: “sou um sofisticado robô sexual, enviado de volta no tempo para mudar o futuro de uma garota de sorte”

Posted: 5 years, 11 months ago at Nov 1 3:09
George McFly, da trilogia De Volta Para o Futuro (1985)
Ator: Crispin Glover

Atitudes geek: gosta de escrever sobre ficção-científica;

Frase geek de impacto: “Na noite passada, Darth Vader, do planeta Vulcano, veio até meu quarto e disse-me que se não levasse Lorraine para um encontro, ele derreteria meu cérebro!!”

Posted: 5 years, 11 months ago at Nov 1 16:54
Ichabod Crane (Johnny Depp), de ‘A lenda do cavaleiro sem cabeça‘ (1999)



É, um geek clássico, que hoje em dia seria viciado em abrir e desmontar computadores e gadgets em geral. É o típico “nerd útil” para resolver nossos problemas.



Seymour (Steve Buscemi), de ‘Mundo cão’ (2001)
Total nerd. Nada mais.






Toby Radloff (Judah Friedlander), de ‘Anti-herói americano’ (2003)

Toby não é só um über-geek nas telas, como na vida real, já que é inspirado num sujeito que realmente existe e que apareceu no filme. E é justamente aquilo, o maior nerd do mundo.

WTF?!! Bruce Wayne is not a geek! He's a rich playboy who happens to be a superhero... just like Tony Stark. Both of which should not even belong on this list.
Posted: 4 years, 5 months ago at Apr 9 13:15

Seth Cohen is the best geek. Sarcastic, ladies man and best non comic book called Atomic County. When it comes to the ladies, Chloe Sullivan rules the geek world. Beautiful, badass and basically can hack everything in the world with ease.
