Meet our favourite fictional IT professionals

When IT pros are portrayed, it’s often as an ancillary character, type-cast straight out of nerd central casting. Here are a few that stand out


There aren’t too many movies and television shows focusing on the work of the IT professional.

For some reason, the drama of compiling code or re-imaging a desktop just doesn’t translate on screen as well as arguing a murder case in a court room or patching a gunshot wound in the emergency room.

When IT pros are portrayed, it’s often as an ancillary character, type-cast straight out of nerd central casting.

There are some rare exceptions, though. So in this week’s slideshow, expertIP takes a look at our favourite fictional IT professionals.
