Martin Starr - Freaks and Geeks
Martin Starr played the character of Bill Haverchuck in the popular TV series, “Freaks and Geeks.” Bill is one of three best friends, along with Neal Schweiber and Sam Weir, and the most socially awkward of the three. The actor has also appeared in popular shows such as “Silicon Valley” and “Party Down.”
Despite being famous for playing characters that are often sarcastic and, dare we say, bitter, Starr is a practicing Buddhist, a curious actor, and a budding filmmaker. He even produced and starred in the charming film Silver Lake, which received the "Soaring Talent Award" at the Tallgrass Film Festival.
Ron Howard - Happy Days
Ron Howard first gained widespread recognition for his role as Richie Cunningham in the iconic TV series “Happy Days.” Richie's character embodied the wholesome, all-American boy from the 1950s. He had occasional brushes with innocent mischief but maintained a strong moral compass. Howard left “Happy Days” to focus on filmmaking and is one of Hollywood’s most powerful directors today.
He has directed a range of films, including the sci-fi/fantasy hit "Cocoon" (1985), the historical docudrama “Apollo 13” (1995), the biographical drama “A Beautiful Mind” (2001) (which earned him an Academy Award for Best Director), and the global sensation “The Da Vinci Code” (2006). He also narrated and produced the Fox comedy series “Arrested Development."
Jesse Eisenberg - Zombieland
"Zombieland" fans know Jessie Eisenberg as Columbus – the show’s quirky but capable protagonist who stole hearts. Eisenberg breathed life into this lovable nerd with his signature charm and humor. Columbus' cautious and analytical approach to the zombie apocalypse made him a valuable member of the group, but it was his emotional depth that set him apart from the other characters.
Eisenberg was perfect for the role, but he excels at other things besides acting. Eisenberg is known for being awkward, but he can also be mischievous when he wants to be. During the filming of “The Social Network,” he played a prank on co-star Andrew Garfield by setting up a fake Facebook account in his name.
Zooey Deschanel - New Girl
The iconic series “New Girl” revolved around the life of Jess, a quirky teacher who moves in with three male roommates. At the center of it, all was Zooey Deschanel, who played the role of Jess. Deschanel off-screen is also known for her independent streak when it comes to fashion and personal image. Her thick bangs and vintage style have become her signature.
Deschanel has also made a name for herself in indie films such as “500 Days of Summer” and “The Good Girl.” Her colorful love life has always made news, including her relationships with actors Chris Kattan and Jason Schwartzman, as well as her ex-husband Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie fame.
