Ortega / Getty Images I wrote a whole article about this (which Mark retweeted with the hashtag #NerdRoyalty and I can now die happy!!!), but if you don't believe me, there's also a lovely Vanity Fair article about Hamill's nerdiness. In the article, Hamill said that if he hadn't been cast in Star Wars, he would've been a superfan, talks about his geeky childhood reading comic books, and shows off his collectibles. 2. Stephen Colbert Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF CBS Peter Jackson, who directed the Lord of the Rings films, called Colbert the biggest Tolkien fan he'd ever met.

Rosario Dawson Andrew Lipovsky / NBC / NBCU Photo Bank via Getty Images Rosario is a huge comics fan, with her Clerks II director Kevin Smith calling her a "fangirl" and "the hottest geek on earth."

Of being called a geek, she said "Geek to me is a really exclusive, really particular type of club, and it's been really nice to be included. ... To be called a geek so much lately has been kind of fascinating — I've always wanted to be a geek. [I love] to get that privilege." 4. Michael B. Jordan Noam Galai / Getty Images for New York Magazine Now, I can't say if Michael is a nerd in other ways, but he is CERTAINLY an anime nerd. He's talked about his love for anime a TON.

Joe Manganiello CBS Manganiello, another huge fan of Dungeons and Dragons, apparently has a basement that's been modified into a gaming room with dragon heads on the walls.
