Geek of the Week: Adam Savage

Adam Savage is most widely-known as the energetic, fun-loving co-host of "Mythbusters", but he has a pretty amazing resume.  His father was a featured animator on "Sesame Street" and Savage provided voices for several of his father's characters.  He also appeared in a Charmin commercial as Mr. Whipple's assistant and as a drowning swimmer in the music video for Billy Joel's "You're Only Human (Second Wind)".  Savage eventually decided that he'd rather be behind the scenes, and has worked as a special effects artist, robotics engineer, and model builder for several films, TV shows, and commercials, including Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones, The Matrix Reloaded, and Galaxy Quest.  He works, along with jack-of-all-trades Jamie Hyneman, on "Mythbusters" and is a featured performer on w00stock.

View Savage's full resume on his website, follow him on Twitter (@donttrythis), and, of course, watch him on "Mythbusters" (Discovery Channel, Wednesdays at 9 PM Eastern)
