(The Frisky) -- Let me pick my jaw up off the floor and dust it off. Seth Green, who is notoriously typecast as "the dorky, funny guy," just got hitched to super hot actress Clare Grant on Sunday, at George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch.

Nice score, Seth. Maybe money can buy you love? OK, that's shallow of me -- perhaps he makes her laugh. And I guess he was pretty cool on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." If werewolves can be "cool."

We found 7 more lucky celebs who played nerds but landed hot mates in real life.

Geoffrey Arend played Joseph Gordon-Leavitt's annoying co-worker at the greeting card company in "500 Days of Summer." In real life, he's mad about the world's sexiest redhead. In October, he tied the knot with Christina Hendricks of "Mad Men."

The Frisky: Why it's better to date a nerd than that other guy

Jack Black must have rocked his way into tall gorgeous brunette and musician Tanya Haden's heart. The two eloped back in 2006 and have a baby boy.

Corey Feldman kicked off his career playing eccentric teenagers in flicks like "The Goonies" and "Stand By Me." Now? He's married to Suzie Feldman, who posed for Playboy in 2008.

Jason Biggs was just an awkward boy struggling to figure out what was up with the ladies in "American Pie." I think he's got things all sorted out now, considering he's married to actress Jenny Mollen.

Claire Danes, aka Angela Chase, was supposed to be a big dork in "My So-Called Life." In her real so-called life, she is married to hunky Hugh Dancy. Read that and weep, Jordan Catalano.

The Frisky: A right or wrong age to get married?

Alyson Hannigan may have played uber-nerdy Willow on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "one time at band camp" girl in "American Pie." In real life, she's a hottie herself and married dreamy Alexis Denisof, who played Wesley on "Buffy" and "Angel."

Remember when Brian Austin Green played super-dork David Silver on "Beverly Hills, 90210"? Well, all grown up, he landed Megan Fox.
