Observation; role model scientist

Just a quick observation that struck me when I watching the latest Teenage Mutant Hero Turtle movie with the family.. It seems that our view of a typical scientist is shifting. Previously you’d think of an Albert Einstein type when modelling a character for a movie (think Doc from Back to the future). But now we seem to be shifting toward a more Neil deGrasse Tyson type scientist as in the latest TMHT movie.


And there seem to more of these examples. Like Hakeem Oluseyi who is enjoying more exposure on TV nowadays. But I guess The Nutty Professor (1996) disproves this point again.. Ah well..
