Is The Big Bang Theory about to give us “The New Love Interests Initiation”?
The CBS comedy has cast Stephen Merchant (Hello Ladies) and Analeigh Tipton (Manhattan Love Story) as Season 9 guest stars, TVLine has confirmed.
While the network would not confirm who Merchant and Tipton will be playing, reports from audience members who attended the taping of Episode 9 suggest they’ll appear as respective dates for the recently broken-up Amy and Sheldon.
Tipton — who just recently guested on CBS’ Limitless (alongside her Manhattan Love Story costar, Jake McDorman) — cameo’d on Big Bang seven years ago, as herself, in an America’s Next Top Model-related storyline. The actress got her start, of course, as a contestant on the CW’s mannequin-tastic reality show.
