Comic-Con

Big Bang Theory Cast on Emmy Rivalries, Wedding Drama and Sex For Sheldon

The cast of Big Bang Theory is so close-knit that even a professional pot-stirrer like me can’t tear them apart. But dammit if I didn’t give it the old college try when the hit sitcom’s ensemble — including Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar and Melissa Rauch — dropped by TVLine’s interview suite at Comic-Con over the weekend.

First I attempted to spark an Emmy feud between lead actor nominees Galecki and Parsons, to no avail. Then I grilled Cuoco about how she really feels about no longer being the ensemble’s lone female series regular, only to discover that she adores both Rauch and fellow full-timer Mayim Bialik.

I had more success getting the gang to spill a scoop or two about the upcoming fifth season, including the upcoming wedding between Howard and Bernadette, a possible turning point in Sheldon’s “romance” with Amy, and a 100th episode that, with any luck, will feature a cameo by a pop culture icon.

  • If you REALLY wanted to stir the pot, you should have asked them about working with Chuck Lorre. ;-)

  • Melissa is just too pretty! Absolutely adore this cast and the show, and I must say, the additions of Melissa and Mayim made for an even stronger season than the one before it. Everyone in this cast deserves an Emmy! And the fans deserve a Thanksgiving episode with both Leonard and Sheldon’s mothers!

    • YES! Please, give us an episode with both Sheldon and Leonard’s mothers. That would be amazing!

  • Yay!! Awesome interview! All the cast (including Mayim) are amazing actors and seriously all deserving of recognition! I really hope they win best comedy because the show’s absolutely fantastic! I’m hoping to see Leonard’s mom again, and more crazy hijinks!

  • This is my favorite Comic-Con interview! They are hilarious and fun. I am so glad they have gotten some Emmy love. Wonderful cast. I have to say, even though I knew that wasn’t Melissa Rauch’s real voice on the show, it threw me how different it is.

  • Leonard Nimoy has a restraining order against Sheldon. We learned that during the Stan Lee episode.

  • I’m still hoping for a Val Kilmer / Gabe Jarrett episode and have Leonard, Sheldon et al from Cal Tech go up against Chris Knight and Mitch Taylor from Pacific Tech and “Real Genius”.

    Or at least a nice little Dabney Eats It (DEI) reference
