Apparently Star Trek’s Leonard Nimoy isn’t 100% retired yet. After year’s of trying, the producers of the nerdy CBS comedy The Big Bang Theory's have finally convinced the actor to do a cameo (of a sort) on the show. More details (and TBBT spoilers) below.
Leonard Nimoy To Finally Do Big Bang Theory Cameo
According to TVLine, Leonard Nimoy is doing a cameo on the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory…or at least a sort of cameo. According to a source, Nimoy will be providing the voice for Spock in a dream sequence for Dr. Sheldon Cooper (played by Jim Parsons). The episode will air on March 29th.
Of course Big Bang's Sheldon is a Spock super fan, bordering on obsessive. Just last month he was seen getting bent out of shape after he was sent the wrong Spock. Watch it.
There have been many other Spock jokes and references on the series, but the closest Sheldon has come to meeting Mr. Nimoy in the past was when he got a gift from Penny. Watch it.
Not Big Bang's first dream sequence with TOS star
This will actually be the second dream sequence featuring an original series star. In 2010 Howard Wolowitz dreamed of Mr. Sulu (played by George Takei), along with Battlestar's Starbuck (Katee Sackhooff). Here is a clip from the episode, along with some behind the scenes with the actors.
