Star Trek Into Darkness Stars Are Geeks!

Chris Pine

Role: James T. Kirk

He’s Geeky Because: As his devoted fans—who call themselves Pine Nuts—know, there’s a lot to love about this guy. He arm wrestled William Shatner in Shatner’s doc The Captains, and his eclectic role choices show diverse and intriguing interests on his part, even though he didn’t geek the geekiest audition of his career (he wanted the lead role in Avatar ultimately won by Sam Worthington). He’s also a big book lover with a degree in English, which pushes his Geek-O-Meter rating to a 5.
