With a 2009 doubleheader of “Star Trek” and “Terminator: Salvation,” Anton Yelchin comes in at #20 on Nerdage’s list of actors with geek appeal.

Yelchin talked to George Lang’s Staticblog last year about his part in both franchises, as Kyle Reece in “Terminator Salvation” and Chekov in “Star Trek.”

“They’re both really incredible to be a part of and to experience, and to be on the set is just insane — they’re both iconic franchises but two totally different moods and philosophies, really,” Yelchin said during a press day at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. “It was pretty wonderful to go from one universe into a totally different universe even though they’re both science fiction.”
