Star Trek Into Darkness Stars Are Geeks!

Anton Yelchin

Role: Pavel Chekov

He’s Geeky Because:  His interests lie a wee bit on the geeky side. He’s an avid reader, a major lit lover, and a serious chess player. He also speaks fluent Russian, and is very musically gifted, playing both piano and guitar. His cinematic geek cred comes from playing the young Kyle Reese in Terminator Salvation and the dude you’re actually rooting for in the revamped Fright Night. Thus, his Geek-O-Meter reads 8.
