Now right off I just want to make clear that it is never distinctly implied that these characters do infact have Aspergers syndrome but they do carry quite a bit of the charactertics that (in my mind) were they infact real life characters they might have been suspected of having Aspergers syndrome.

1. Shelden Cooper (The Big Bang Theory)
2. Sherlock Holmes (The adventures of Sherlock Holmes)

and that's the two I have so far.....anybody care to do anyone else?

Lisbeth Salander in the girl with the dragon tattoo trilogy books and films. In the books it states that she is an aspie.

"Alter-Astrid" from FOX's "Fringe" has Asperger's. Makes for a very interesting character to watch. :)

I don't remember the character's name, but one of the lawyers on Boston Legal had Asperger's. Denny Crane (bill shatner) called him "Hands"

This weekend I read a book called Austin Nights. I found it on the Amazon Bargain Books Best Seller List and decided to give it a shot.

http://www.amazon.com/Austin-Nights-ebook/dp/B004M8S60C

Wasn't expecting the protagonist - Michael - to have so many Aspergian tendencies even though it's never directly said that he's on the spectrum.

I found him to have that sort of quirky, different-slant kind of perception, and when he mentioned the math, and then quoted pi, well, that's when the lights went off.

Wonder if anyone else has read it here and felt the same way? Lots of people tagged it as 'Aspergers' but no one mentioned it in the reviews yet.

Also, the boy in the tv show Parenthood openly has Aspergers.
