Star Trek Into Darkness Stars Are Geeks!

By Beth Mishler May 13, 2013

3 of 10

Zachary Quinto

Role: Spock

He’s Geeky Because: Most geeks know that he set the villainy bar a bit higher with his memorable turn as uber-evil Sylar on the cult show Heroes, and he has since won fans in the horror genre with his twisted turn(s) in both seasons of American Horror Story. He has also shown his geek-tinged sense of humor when, during an interview, he was asked to play Sheldon Cooper’s modification of a classic, rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock, and did so, handily, without batting an eye. A love of theater and a penchant for wearing those fabulous specs moves his Geek-O-Meter rating to a 9.
