The Geekiest Guys In Hollywood!

Wil Wheaton

In the 90's, a young Wil Wheaton played Wesley Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation, the very first Star Trek spinoff. He was already a lifelong geek, and so the experience was a dream come true. Wheaton took a hiatus from acting in his 20s, but returned soon after, and today is one of the most successful voiceover actors in the country. Wheaton is outspoken about his nerdy obsessions as well as politics, and pokes fun at his identity as a geek icon whenever he can, perhaps most notably on The Big Bang Theory, where he has a recurring role as himself!
