King Of The Nerds Hosts Prove Their Nerd Cred

In Fox News interview

Robert Carradine and Curtis Armstrong are currently hamming it up as the overseer of the nerdiest nerds in the country, on TBS's reality show King of the Nerds. They were tapped for the hosting gig because they portrayed two of the most memorable characters in one of the most iconic nerd flicks - Revenge of the Nerds.

But just because you portray a nerd in a movie, that doesn't make you a nerd. It makes you an actor. But Carradine and Armstrong insist they know exactly what the contestants went through growing up.

For Armstrong, that is especially true. In an interview with Fox News, he said, "I was really a bad nerd. In fact I am still really kind of a nerd. I was a book nerd probably most of all. I was obsessed with books and writers like Conan Doyle. I was a big Sherlock Holmes geek and remain so to this day. I was hopeless. I dream of being Sherlock Holmes."

Carradine says he was less of a nerd, but that he does have nerd cred which "seems to extend into the remote control model airplane field which I was really into as a young man and still have a lot of interest in."

They both expressed that being a nerd today is not like it was back in their youth. As Armstrong said, "There was not this massive Comic-Con things and different conventions. Now there are places where nerds can get together and share their interests. If you’re a nerd and feeling on the outside go to the internet, go to a convention, go where you’ll find people with the same interests."

Carradine encouraged nerds of all ages to "believe in who you are and don't give up!"
