Dude Legally Changes Name to Captain Awesome

by at . Comments

Some crazy guy actually went and changed his name to "Captain Awesome" in honor of the character from NBC's Chuck. Seriously. He got an ID and everything!

Awesome, previously known as unemployed 27-year-old Douglas Allen Smith Jr., legally made the switch earlier this fall. Chuck is now in its fourth season.

No word on why he has a state ID but no driver's license (too many DUIs, perhaps?) or whether Capt. Awesome is trying to compensate for being 5'2" ...

In related news, Free Britney has been toying with the idea of a name change to honor either McDreamy from Grey's Anatomy or the Man in Black from Lost.
