Big Bang First Look: Sheldon Finally Meets Spock

It’s the photo that’s been five years in the making.

On Friday, upcoming Big Bang Theory guest star Leonard Nimoy tweeted a geektastic image from the set of the CBS hitcom.

As TVLine first reported, the Star Trek legend is set to be heard, not seen in next Thursday’s episode when he speaks to super-fan Sheldon (Jim Parsons, above), as Spock, in a dream sequence.

“We’ve been chasing Leonard for years, and he finally gave up,” Big Bang cocreator Chuck Lorre recently told TVLine. “We caught him.

  2. Bob Genghis Khan says:

    More’s the pity that he’s heard but not seen. Love the Nimoy! Respect to him for joining in the fun though.

    Glory, Halleulujah!

    Wil Wheaton and Leonard Nimoy in one epsiode?! Can’t wait!

    • Nadine says:

      Woah, they’re both in the same episode? I’m thrilled and tickled pink!

      BTW, just discovered the documentary “The Captains”, Bill Shatner conducting fascinating and honest series of interviews with ST captain actors.

  6. Polly says:

    I can die happy now.

  7. They both look thrilled! I’m so happy for the show (and Sheldon) that Leonard Nemoy is appearing (even if it is only his voice).

    Very Good :) :)

  10. JohnDoe says:

    Leonard Nimoy looks pretty good for 80, I’ll say. I know people in their 50’s that look much older.

  11. polarcubby says:

    Look at Jim! He looks like’s gonna burst with happiness.

  12. Lacey says:

    Oh what an awesome photo! I am so happy that Leonard Nemoy agreed to do the show even if it’s just his voice. Hopefully this is not the only episode he does and that eventually he’ll appear in person. He can sit in a chair for the whole episode and fans would be thrilled beyond belief. Can you just imagine Sheldon’s reaction if he were to see Nemoy in person?!

  13. Mstrmike says:

    Do you think Nimoy played Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Me?

  14. This picture makes me think of the second season holiday episode where Sheldon is all “I have Leonard Nimoy’s DNA” and gives Penny a hug. Makes me smile.

    Let me jump on the wildly happy bandwagon, please.

  17. Elba Gutierrez says:

    I have to say that for the past few of hours i have been hooked by the impressive articles on this site. Keep up the good work.

  18. dolleyes says:

    Mr. Nimoy has to be the kindest and sweetest guy on the planet, totally adore him. Absolutely adore him, he’s a national treasure.

  19. Jim Parsons actually looks tickled for real – can’t wait for this episode
