Geeks have traditionally gotten the short end of the stick on-screen, but these 15 movie and TV nerds are changing that perception.
Reuben Baron is a writer, filmmaker, critic and general nerd with a particular interest in animation. He does freelance writing for Comic Book Resources and used to write for MyAnimeList before they censored one of his articles to appease Nazis (seriously, that was a thing that happened). He majored in Film at Bard College, where he somehow got Neil Gaiman to star in a ridiculous student film. Since then, some of his (slightly less ridiculous) screenplays have been finalists in contests. He regularly appears on panels at the Anime Boston and Arisia conventions.
