Big Bang Theory Casting Scoop: Look Who's Playing Bernadette's Father!

Get More: Casting News

Howard Wolowitz, meet your future father in law.

The Big Bang Theory has tapped acting vet Casey Sander (Grace Under FireJustified) to guest star as Bernadette’s (Melissa Rauch) blue-collar ex-cop dad.

Sander first appears in the May 3 episode, “The Launch Acceleration,” which deals with the potentially catastrophic fallout of Howard’s delayed NASA mission. Basically, the new launch date conflicts with his wedding to Bernadette – putting their big day in jeopardy.

Perhaps Mr. Rostenkowski shows up to help Howard get his priorities in order?

The gig reunites Sander with his former Grace Under Fire boss (and Big Bang EP) Chuck Lorre.

      • then why is aus reporting it as scoop then?

        fed up with his lack of professionalism and not crediting other sites like ksite, buddytv etc when they out scoop him.

        this will be my final visit to this slow loading site

        • Did he try to claim it as Exclusive? I must have missed that. You would die of old age before you got every news site on the Internet to not repeat any stories without crediting the people who first reported it. Get over it. It is what it is.
          As far as you bailing on the site……SEE YA!

        • The term “scoop” can be taken two ways. One, as being the first to get/release the information. The other simply, as “news”. As in “What’s the scoop?”

  • I’d have been happier with Michael Delouise.

  • The second I heard Bernadette’s father was a cop, I instantly thought of Casey Sander. Such a great gruff cop.

  • I loved Casey Sander in Grace Under Fire. He’s really tall, though, so whoever plays the mother is going to need to be really short.

  • I adored him in Grace Under Fire – one of the most under-appreciated tv shows of all time.
