Sure, Matt Damon may be People's Sexiest Man Alive, but there are plenty of sexy geeks out there getting cred this year, too! Uber-geek and The Office star Rainn Wilson may not have made the sexiest list, but he did receive an honorable mention. He sat down with People to create a funny video about being called sexy by the magazine. Here's more:
- What's your reaction to being called sexy by People?
What? Oh My God. Ahhhhhhh.
- Why is being nerdy so sexy?
Some of the most powerful men in the world are geeks, what with the computers and Internet and all. You see their pictures in the newspapers and everything like that. The geeks didn't worry about being popular so they worked on whatever it was — on music or websites — and became bazillionaires and have risen to prominence.
- When do you feel sexiest?
When sitting in a rumbled suit in a plastic toy car.

Rainn also revealed he likes his women "tattooed and dangerous" and has a soft spot in his heart for nerdy men, saying "Masi Oka gets me really riled up." Ugly Betty's nerdy accountant Chris Gorham and Masi Oka from Heroes also shared video secrets with the magazine.
