masi oka geeks out

Ellen wrote in to tell me about an interview she did last week for SF Gate's "Tech Chronicles," with Heroes star Masi Oka, who was at San Francisco's Apple store to help promote Get Smart: Masi Oka gets smart at the Apple store. Like his character in both Heroes and Get Smart, the guy is a self-proclaimed geek, and the interview definitely backs his claims to geekdom. Especially at the end.

Though he has a minor supporting role in Get Smart, his character headlines this summer's other Get Smart movie, the direct-to-video Bruce and Lloyd Out of Control, which hits stores on Tuesday. The movie's story evidently occurs simultaneously with the events in Get Smart, sort of like a Rosencrantz and Gildenstern tale. Interesting, though I imagine if the movie was really good, they would have released it theatrically.
