I'm really excited to see this. Nate Silver might be the most famous present day Bayesian statistician.

UPD: It appears that author of the Reddit post deleted it for some reason. The link still works but it makes sense to post the link to the Nate Silver blog with his original announcement, just in case: http://fivethirtyeight.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/01/06/ask-nate-anything/

Somebody should ask him if he was aware of the Less Wrong community when he named chapter 8 of his book "Less and Less and Less Wrong."

Nate Silver might be the most famous present day Bayesian statistician.

Nate Silver is probably the most famous present day statistician period.

Yes, but his Bayesian ideology makes him especially interesting for this community.

He doesn't have a movie about him yet.

Is there some statistician who does who I'm missing a reference to here?

Whoever the Moneyball movie is based on.

Bill James. [edit] It looks like Moneyball is primarily about Billy Beane, who wasn't a statistician himself, but a manager who used sabermetrics (pioneered by James and others).
