->''"Lots of very respectable people are trekkies."''
-->--'''Nathan Spencer''', ''Series/{{Casualty}}''

There are many, ''many'' famous people out there who are also {{geek}}s and {{nerd}}s... [[TroperDemographics which is exactly what we are]]. Most of them keep their geekish tendencies hidden. [[ProudToBeAGeek Some don't care]].

The literal version of HollywoodNerd. You can take the most vicious and dangerous badass action hero and when they go on a talk show to promote their new movie, they let it slip that they hadn't been getting much sleep because they've been playing the latest video game.

Compare PromotedFanboy and AscendedFanboy (a promoted fanboy InUniverse). See also ComicsRuleEverythingAroundMe.

It probably isn't necessary to list every single genre fantasy or sci-fi writer here, though. Yes, we can ''assume'' that, say, Creator/TerryPratchett or Creator/GeorgeRRMartin are gigantic fantasy geeks; it isn't necessary to say it... in fact, listing the fantasy or sci-fi writers who ''aren't'' geeks would be shorter. Probably because such a creature likely doesn't exist (except [[Literature/SwordOfTruth perhaps]] Creator/TerryGoodkind).

Not related to OneOfOurOwn or the Joan Osborne and ABBA songs named "One of Us".
