"Lots of very respectable people are trekkies."
—Nathan Spencer, Casualty
The literal version of Hollywood Nerd. You can take the most vicious and dangerous badass action hero and when they go on a talk show to promote their new movie, a line slips that they hadn't been getting much sleep because of them playing the latest video game.
It probably isn't necessary to list every single genre fantasy or sci-fi writer here, though. Yes, we can assume that, say, Terry Pratchett or George R. R. Martin 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 perhaps Terry Goodkind).
