In the last season of The Big Bang Theory, Wil Wheaton was introduced (playing an evil version of himself) as a nemesis of the show’s breakout character Sheldon Cooper. The Star Trek: The Next Generation star appeared twice in the last season, and now it looks like he could be coming back.
It’s Still On For Wil Wheaton on Big Bang Theory
News of Wheaton’s return to The Big Bang Theory comes from Entertainment Weekly which reports that TBBT exec producer Bill Prady wants to "revive the ugly feud" between Wheaton and Sheldon possibly in time for November sweeps. The idea for the appearance is to have Wil Wheaton and some friends cut in line at a special movie screening, taking the last seats and leaving the Big Bang boys out in the cold. According to Prady the idea came from Adam Savage from Mythbusters who got to cut the line for the Star Trek The Experience auction back in April (reported here at TrekMovie).
Wheaton appeared twice in the third season of The Big Bang Theory, first in "The Creepy Candy Coating Corollary", and then returning in "The Wheaton Recurrence ". Here are clips from Wil Wheaton’s past two appearances on The Big Bang Theory.
Wheaton has been showing up more and more on TV these days. He recently appeared in a guest spot on the Syfy show Eureka, and he has recently shot another episode of Eureka. Wheaton also has a recurring role on the web series The Guild. Here is a clip featuring Wheaton on The Guild.
