Star Trek Into Darkness Stars Are Geeks!

Simon Pegg

Role: Scotty

He’s Geeky Because: His roles in contemporary classics of geekdom like Paul, Hot Fuzz, and Shaun of the Dead have made him a beloved favorite in geek circles everywhere. In real-life, Pegg is a total self-described geek (he loves Buffy and The X-Files, and said the first time he saw Star Wars was a moment of “awakening”). He also loads the scripts he writes with hilarious sci-fi and fantasy pop culture references we all know and love. Geek-O-Meter rating: 10.
