Oka who plays a nerdy, average Joe with the ability to time travel says hes happy to be the coolest geek on primetime, especially if he can help geeks garner a hipper reputation.
Says Oka: My character is someone a lot of geeks can relate to, but to me, being a geek is not a negative thing, its actually a commendable thing. A geek is someone who is passionate about something, and it doesnt matter whether its computers, ant farms, or paperweights. Its better to care about something than nothing.
And helping geeks feel the glory while accepting his own nerdiness seems to be working in Okas favor especially when it comes to adoring fans.
He adds, Ive gotten a handful of marriage proposals from fans since the show started and it always surprises me. Ive heard of love at first sight, but marriage at first sight is a little too strange.
Season two of Heroes premieres September 24th.
