Geek Of The Week: Masi Oka

Though he didn't take home a statue at Monday's Golden Globe Awards, Masi Oka, who is the star of NBC's Heroes is my pick for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, and my pick for geek of the week.

Not many people know this, but Oka graduated Brown University in 1997 with degrees in mathematics and computer science and a minor in theatre arts. When he was 12, he was on the cover of the August 31, 1987 issue of Time magazine titled "Those Asian-American Whiz Kids," because he has an IQ of 180-plus. My favorite part about Oka? After getting his acclaimed role on Heroes he told reporters he's still driving his 2000 Honda. Talk about a humble geek!

Haha, I still go to Brown, Geek, I'm a junior. One more year and I can say that I'm a graduate. I wouldn't call myself a smartie, however. :-) ~M~
