A man in the US has changed his name to Captain Awesome.

Formerly known as Douglas Allen Smith Jr, the Oregon-based man changed his name because of NBC show 'Chuck', claiming the character of Devon 'Captain Awesome' Woodcomb inspired him.

He said: "I just thought it was really funny that Devon's father always called him Captain Awesome because 'a poor nickname builds good character'."

Mr Awesome is currently unemployed, having previously been a cabinet installer.

Just last week it was revealed 'Chuck' was the most pirated TV show in the US.
