Cool cat David Krumholtz plays the part of mathematical genius Charlie Eppes on CBS' NUMB3RS. Eppes works as a professor of mathematics at a California technical university and helps his FBI agent brother Don Epps (played by Rob Morrow) solve crimes using math. His left-brained talents give him the ability to de-construct any complex or practical situation into a mathematical model. He uses this model to offer insight to the FBI about certain crimes. Multiplying 4 number digits at the age of three, attending Princeton at thirteen, and studying at Stanford and MIT makes this mathematician a perfect geek of the week!

It can be argued that every character on NBC's hit Heroes, is prime Geek of the Week material, mostly due to the fact that they are all ordinary people who discover they possess extraordinary abilities...the life story of most geeks. But dreamer Milo Ventimiglia, who tries to convince his politician brother that he can fly, is in a league of his own. Of course, my judgment might be clouded by the fact that he's so beautiful.
According to one of his fan sites, Milo attended El Modena High School in California and was Associated Student Body president, which is geeky enough for me.

When it comes to geeky men, David Duchovny still takes the cake for me. Despite the fact that the X-Files has been off the air for nearly 10 years, it's still alive in syndication and the memory of geeks everywhere. Duchovny, who seems to keep busy with indie film projects and directing episodes of shows like Bones, will reportedly be the lead in an upcoming comedy show on cable. You know I'll be there - like a moth to a flame baby.
I actually read that another X-Files movie could be made sooner rather than later, which has me all flustered and excited. No geek pleases more than agent Fox Mulder.
