Now the term geek is tres chic..." They picked PJ as one of their 5 geeks (also including Jon Stewart and Steve Jobs): "Movie Geek: Peter Jackson, director of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. He's hairy, he's unfashionable, and he's tech-obsessed, but his magical Rings movies made sci-fi cool for everyone."
