back when they played geeks, part 2

A follow-up of sorts to last year's post, back when they played geeks part one


My sister and I couldn't help remarking on how attractive Joseph Gordon Levitt turned out, especially after seeing him as Arthur in Inception. Just a while back he was the endearing boytoy opposite Zooey Deschanel in 500 Days of Summer.

We remember him of course from one of the cutest '90s teen flicks ever, 10 Things I Hate About You (1999). He was Cameron, the adorable antihero swooning over the unattainable popular girl.

Cameron's excessively annoying buddy in 10 Things I Hate About You, AV club president Mike, was played by David Krumholtz. In those days, especially after being cast as Bernard the Elf in The Santa Clause (1994), he seemed like a kid doomed to play loserly roles.

But he is today more easily recognized as Charlie Eppes in TV's recently-concluded Numb3rs. Okay, fine - Charlie Eppes is a math nerd, but the actually-attractive kind.


Angelina has got to be the hottest-looking woman alive today - I haven't yet met anyone who would disagree with that.

Being the offspring of celebrity parents, she was practically born into the Hollywood A-List but she started out with mostly B-flicks and made-for-TV movies. The world began to give her serious attention after she won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Girl, Interrupted (1999); her popularity skyrocketed when her name became synonymous with Lara Croft.

What we've probably forgotten is that obscure role in Hackers (1995) - cybergeek Kate "Acid Burn" Libby. I.m.h.o, though not yet glamorous, I thought she was already kinda sexy back then, despite the slight Vulcan look.

In the early '90s, Neil Patrick Harris was everyone's favorite child genius, Dr. Doogie Howser, MD.

After a long while of laying low and causing fans to wonder what ever happened to that kid who played Doogie, NPH came out (ahem) . He's now known for his other lovable character, Barney of How I Met Your Mother. Not too hunky, but hawt nonetheless.
