So, it's no secret that I like my TV, books, movies and other media in two genres: horror and SciFi. That's pretty much it. I'm the geeky girl who quotes Buffy in daily life and rearranges my schedule for Doctor Who. It's just who I am. And I love the geeky boys, too.
So, I thought I would perk up this Friday with my all-time favorite geeky boys.
My Five Favorite SciFi Boys
1. David Tennant - Trust him, he's The Doctor. I mean, really, that's all I should have to say. But it doesn't hurt that he's a fabulous actor who has been in EVERYTHING. I mean it, everything. He's done Hamlet for the love of Gallifrey. And just in case you need additional geeky creds: Harry Potter (Barty Crouch, Jr.) and a rumor swirling around the upcoming Hobbit movies. There you go. Also, he rocked the Chuck Taylors. And everyone knows that they are the geek shoe of choice.
2. Aidan Turner - Not to be confused with Aiden Turner (who is a soap star and well, whatever), Aidan is a relative newcomer to the American consciousness. He's also tapped for the upcoming Hobbit project, but mostly he plays a brooding vampire trying to do better and be better (and perhaps please-please-please fall in love with a ghost) on Being Human. The original thank-you-very-much. I love the hair. And the brood. You know, the other famous broody vampire isn't on this list - partly because of his shunning of things geeky, but also because he just never did it as well as Mitchell.
4. Nathan Fillion - I know he's doing Castle right now (and giving me a reason to watch one of the 7.2 million cop shows on TV) but he's always going to be Captain Mal to me. For the uninitiated, he was the lead in the short-lived Joss Whedon series Firefly. The series was such a cult hit that even though there were only 14 episodes shot and (I think) only 11 aired, the support was so great that they were able to do a movie, Serenity. I don't know how Fillion feels about the genre, so much as how he feels about Joss, since his other credentials are Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog, but it's good enough for me.
5. Jensen Ackles - You didn't think I forgot him, did you? Jensen is Supernatural as far as I'm concerned. Although I do have a highly inappropriate crush on Bobby. Jensen got his start in soaps and even did a stint on Dawson's Creek. I'm willing to forgive him, though, because he's more than made up for it with SN, Smallville, and Dark Angel.
Who's your SciFi crush? Or are you a sucker for the romantic comedy boys? Or comedians? Let me know in the comments.
