Geek Crush: Richard Ayoade

Geek Crush of the week is Richard Ayoade, best known for playing geeky IT tech Maurice Moss in The IT Crowd. Ayoade got his start doing theater while at Cambridge at Footlights, the elite theater club, where he worked alongside comedian John Oliver writing and directing plays. Today, Ayoade is a geek icon thanks to his work in cult hits like The IT Crowd and The Mighty Boosh. Ayoade’s directorial debut, Submarine, is garnering serious attention after premiering at the Toronto Film Festival last year, and poised to become one of the most sought after young directors in the UK. And with his easy charm, shy smile and horn-rimmed glasses, he’s downright impossible to resist for a dyed-in-the-wool geek girl like me. ❤

Trailer for Ayoade’s Submarine, due to hit theaters Memorial Day weekend:
