Today's modern nerd is anything but a glasses-wearing wimp; just ask "Chuck" super geek Vik Sahay!
From hair tips to TV, I went on a top secret mission to get the answers firsthand. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to read on:
Q: What's the best part about working on "Chuck"?
A: I'll never have to audition for it again (actors will get this). Plus, being a part of a long term "harvest" with so many characters, writers, crew. It's a punchy, mad family.
Q: How does it feel to be known as part of the "Nerd Herd"?
A: Ironic, given I've always considered myself a lone wolf. It may be my first herd experience of any kind. Nerd is beside the point.
Q: Do you all play jokes on each other behind the scenes or on set?
A: We try to do them with each other rather than on each other. And if we're lucky, they keep rolling the cameras. That makes every scene a new fun challenge. What can I slip in here? What can I twist around there?
Q: You have great hair! Any hair secrets you can share?
A: My mother shaved me bald when I was about three years with the belief that it would give me a good head of hair. I guess it's never too late to try that out. Barring that, a good moisturizing conditioner.
Q: What are your favorite TV shows?
A: "Dexter", "Nurse Jackie", "Mad Men", "Breaking Bad"... to name a few.
Q: We all have our bad days; how do you get over yours?
A: Watch UFC, watch tennis, read, go into my cave and avoid humans for a spell. And eat chicken tikka masala/curry.
Watch Vik on the "Chuck" season premiere September 20.
