WOAH! That was THAT Chick? – Emily Perkins

You know her as the blossoming braided sweatheart, Beverly Marsh, but guess what else she’s been doing??

To be perfectly honest, she’s changed so much since IT that I didn’t recognize her in any of the rolls that are listed on her filmography when I watched the movies.  Once I knew it was her, though, I wasn’t at all surprised.

In 2006, she stole the show (for me anyway) in She’s The Man, also starring Channing Tatum and Amanda Bynes, a modern take on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night.  Her geektastic lines and overt love of cheese leave the impression of slightly creepy virgin loner geek who watches WAY too much porn.  Wait, is there such a thing??  Don’t worry though, she gets her guy in the end.

Then, in 2007, she surprised me yet again by taking the small but incredibly memorable role of the Punk Receptionist in Juno.  I laughed so hard at her one line that I nearly choked and I’ll definitely never look at pie the same way again.

Most recently, she’s been on a few episodes of Supernatural, a show I’m sad to say, I don’t watch, so I cannot comment.  At least she’s keeping busy.

WOAH! That Was THAT Dude? – Wil Wheaton

Trailer for Wil Wheaton’s web show, “Table Top,” on the “Geek and Sundry” Network

I thought it might be fun to do some posts that are kind of similar to the “Where are they now?” posts that I’ve been doing here, but with a little different spin. This is going to be a series of posts that came from my watching Stephen King Movies and going “I wonder who these people are?” and then looking them up on IMDb. This is the first of those posts, and I wanted to discuss Wil Wheaton and why you may know him.

As you should know by now, I am a turbo-nerd. I am also a huge fan of nerd culture celebrities, mostly due to the fact that nerd culture celebs are generally smart and articulate… in other words, they mock the Kardashians rather than kissing their asses. I am a huge fan of Wil Wheaton.  I, unfortunately, have not had the pleasure of meeting him in person, but he seems like a genuinely nice person. As a member of nerd culture, I like having great people representing us, people that are very approachable and friendly. People like Wil Wheaton, Chris Hardwick and Felicia Day are wonderful examples of this.
