Who is it? Julie Newmar
Websites Official Webpage
Why do nerds love her?
Well, let's see. She was the Catwoman. Also did a Star Trek. Also, ridiculously hot.

Few women are as loved by nerds and transvestites as universally as Julie Newmar. Her best known role is as Catwoman during seasons one and two of the Batman television series (1966-67). She was also Eleen in the ST:TOS episode "Friday's Child" (1967). Many also remember her, though may not have know it was her, from the George Michaels video for Too Funky (1992), alongside supermodels like Tyra Banks, Naomi Campbell, and Linda Evangelista. Newmar was 59 at the time.

Too Funky video. Julie comes in about halfway through. She's in the leather catsuit throwing a fit, then rolling around on stage.

Yea Julie Newmar is super sexy. I just saw her in the Gregory Peck western McKenna's gold as the scare faced Apache he spurned and she is still hot for him. Great movie.

She's awesome, but in this role I prefer Michelle Pfeiffer. :)

I'm an oddball because I always enjoyed Eartha Kitt more as Catwoman with Michelle Pfeiffer coming in next. Don't get me wrong, Julie Newmar is sexy but I just can't stand her as Catwoman.

I liked Timothy Dalton and George Lazenby as James Bond, so tastes vary :-)

I liked Kitt as well. Probably Lee Meriwether next, sexy-wise (it's largely that particular costume). I really liked Pfeifer as Catwoman. That psychotic twinge really adds to the character. Everyone in Batman is supposed to be damaged goods, and she was damaged for sure.

What is really great is when the very sexy Debra Wilson did the Eartha Kitt Catwoman on Mad TV. I'll have to find a clip of that.
