Christopher Mintz-Plasse "isn't sick" of playing geeks.

The 22-year-old actor - who is best known for playing bookish character McLovin in 'Superbad' - doesn't mind getting nerdy roles, and is glad to have the "opportunity" to star in big films like his latest role in the remake of 'Fright Night'.

He said: "I've played a whole bunch of geeks so I can't be sick of them yet.

"Maybe I will once I get older, and start looking older, finally. But I'm just glad I've had these opportunities to be geeks in some really awesome movies."

Despite being known for his unusual parts, Christopher - who also plays in rock band the Young Rapscallions - insists he himself is not that geeky, and has a love of sport.

He said: "I'm not really into comic books or Dungeons and Dragons or any of that kind of stuff. I was in drama class, and I'm a big movie and music buff, and I'm into sports.

"I'm pretty decent. I can shoot a three pointer in basketball and I can shoot a soccer ball.
