(sorry, Steve, I couldn't resist). I am sure we can all come up with some lifters who are brilliant. Stereotypes are just that, stereotypes, meant to be broken, so let's break them.
There are plenty of brilliant guys who excel in multiple spheres. To add to your list, Dr. Ognjen Arandjelovic is a research fellow in Trinity College, Cambridge, (works in Computer Science, specifically face recognition softwares). He also happens to be a champion (British National Bodybuilding championship, heavyweight division).
In addition to being a top gun researcher and bodybuilder, this gentleman is also a superb artist.
Here's his website. Scroll down the links on left to see his bodybuilding exploits.
