Apparently I’m not the only one with fictional geeks on the brain lately. In honor of the rumored Facebook movie, The Guardian posted some photographs of the greatest geeks to have graced the silver screen.
Though many of their picks aren’t exactly “fictional”–Steve Jobs and Bill Gates as portrayed in The Pirates of Silicon Valley (pictured), for example, and Jim Sturgess in 21 as the count-carding math geek from Bringing Down the House. I guess it just goes to show that real-life geeks make good movies. And Mark Zuckerberg will soon be joining their ranks! The Guardian suggests that Lee Pace (from Pushing Daisies) should play him, but I’m thinking Jason Biggs.
