As part of SYFY 25 – where we’re looking back at everything amazing that’s happened in the world of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror over the last 25 years – we asked a bunch of famous people what sort of geeky stuff they like.
Here’s what Alan Tudyk had to say!

Comedy. If something makes me laugh really hard it sticks in my head or my heart or somewhere inside me. Probably not my pancreas -- some other more soulful innard.
The first thing I remember geeking out over:
Mel Brooks' History of the World Part I. I could recite it backwards and forwards at 12. It wasn't as funny backwards but the forwards was hysterical.

Stan Lee. Joss Whedon comes in a close second. I think he'd be okay with coming in second to Stan. Whedon changed my life.
My geeky guilty pleasure is:
Neil Diamond music.
The current state of science fiction in three words:
Respect. Forefront. Montana.

Serenity. It's perfect.
