Hot Nerd of the Week: Clark Duke!

This is one of my most favorite people of all time. He's just starting to hit it bigtime now, but I've been following him for a few years now, and he can make me laugh without fail.


Best known as Michael Cera's real-life best friend, Clark Duke was born and raised in Glenwood, Arkansas. After high school, Clark attended Loyola University where, for his thesis, he wrote, directed and produced the web series "Clark and Michael", where he and Michael Cera play fictional versions of themselves.



Over the years, Clark has gained recognition in the acting world. In 1992, he was nominated for a Young Actors Award as an "Outstanding Actor Under Ten in a Television Series" for his role in Hearts Afire.

In 2007, Clark scored the recurring role of Dale Kettlewell on the television show Greek.

In 2008, Clark starred in the "Funny or Die" classic Drunk History vol 2. Where he gained much more recognition, especially among comedic actors.



Also in 2008, Clark co-starred in his first major motion picture, Sex Drive. In 2010, he co-starred in two of my favorite movies, Kick-Ass and Hot Tub Time Machine.

Clark is currently working on the movie A Thousand Words starring Eddie Murphy.

Although there is not a whole lot about Clark's personal life available, he's got a TON of nerd appeal. That, joined with his ability to make me laugh no matter what he;s in is the reason that Clark Duke is this week's Hot Nerd!
