Uber Geek Biopics

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio is set to play Atari super nerd Nolan Bushnell in an upcoming biopic produced by DiCaprio’s Appian Way production company.

Born in 1943, the gaming innovator founded Atari in 1972 which led to the creation of the hit game Pong. Bushnell sold Atari to Warner Communications for $28 million and founded Chuck E. Cheese’s Pizza-Time Theaters chain in 1977.

Although he does not come close to Steve Jobs or Bill Gates’ status in the geek world, Bushnell was named one of Newsweek’s “50 Men That Changed America” and is bound to add some cool points after this movie.
