    From TV Line Big Bang Theory: Kal Penn, Sean Astin Cast in Final Season The Big Bang Theory’s Sheldon and Amy are getting an assist with their super-asymmetry theory — and something tells us Dr. Cooper will be none too pleased. The CBS sitcom has cast Kal Penn (Designated Survivor) and Sean Astin (Stranger Things) to guest-star in an upcoming episode as Drs. Campbell and Pemberton, a team of physicists who accidentally confirm the marrieds’ complex scientific concept, TVLine has learned. An airdate has not been announced. As fans will recall, Sheldon and Amy thought their super-asymmetry theory had been disproven by a Russian paper. Then, in the Dec. 6 episode, the theoretical physicist and his wife came to a breakthrough and realized that the paper was only right from one perspective, which meant their theory was still sound. Penn most recently co-starred opposite Kiefer Sutherland in the first two seasons of Designated Survivor, which will soon relocate from ABC to Netflix. Astin, meanwhile, will follow-up his Stranger Things stint with a starring role in Netflix’s multi-camera family comedy No Good Nick. The Big Bang Theory‘s 12th and final season resumes Thursday, Jan. 3 at 8/7c on CBS.

    Sean Astin is very well known over here. His parents were both actors: John Astin (actually his step-father) was Gomez on the 1960's show The Addams Family. His mom was child actress Patty Duke (The Diary of Anne Frank and she had her own television show in the 60's where she played "cousins. Identical cousins...."). Sean his famous in his own right as being the star of the cult-classic movie Rudy and of course for his role as Samewise Gamgee (Sam) in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Stranger Things is pretty popular over here as well. Sean Astin being cast is really a coup.

    Sean was also in "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy and starred in "Goonies" as a kid.

    Stranger Things is kind of a big deal nowadays...Plus Astin was in the Lord of the Rings trilogy and in The Goonies, I can see why (if he was referring to him, of course) Prady might be excited. I myself love Stranger Things, so I'm excited! Not a fan of The Goonies and LOTR, instead!

    Thanks A brief look at Google mostly showed Stranger Things. While it is very successful, I think these writers are usually more excited about actors from older times, like LOTR... He doesn't know about the marker on episode name method... But I can't see what's written there... Also, I wonder if there will be anything about the Zack thing next week since the main thing seems to be about super asymmetry...

    KC also brought a depth to the character far beyond what you usually get in sitcom acting.

    From Entertainment Tonight 'Black Panther' Star and 'Big Bang Theory' Cast Among 76th Golden Globe Awards Presenters The 2019 Golden Globes are gearing up to kick off this year's film awards season in earnest, with Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh helming the ship as the night's comedic hosting duo. Now, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has started to reveal which A-list stars are going to help make the show run smoothly as the night's big presenters, and ET has exclusively learned a few of the celebs who will be handing out the coveted trophies. Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman is among the many stars who will take the stage during the star-studded show. The 41-year-old Marvel hero's blockbuster epic, which hit theaters with a deafening roar back in February, is nominated for three Golden Globes, including Best Picture - Drama, Best Original Score and Best Original Song for the track, "All the Stars." Additionally, The Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco, Johnny Galecki and Jim Parsons will also be serving as presenters. All three have been nominated for Golden Globes in past years for their hit CBS sitcom, with Parsons taking home the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a TV Series - Comedy or Musical back in 2011. <snip> The 76th annual Golden Globe Awards air Jan. 6 on NBC.

    In his IG post Kal Penn said..."Can’t wait to join these guys for an episode next week!" Melissa's script was blue in the IG picture that @luminous posted earlier today. There is no sticker in the upper right hand corner that shows his name and character name. Also it is not bound by clips and it is very thin. Based on these clues I don't think he is in the episode that they are rehearsing and taping this week, but will join the cast next week for the next episode. More than likely it was the material he was sent (know as the "sides") to either audition or to convince him to appear.

    It’s nothing against the actors but the predictable storyline.

    It is a big deal in my household. Sam was my youngest daughters favorite character in LOTR. In my generation of my family the LOTR books were big. For me Sean Astin made the second season of Stranger things a lot more interesting. I hope they make good use of him! For me it is the biggest news on this site since we first heard of Mark Hamill having a role in 11.24.

    i had corrected the post, as soon as I remembered it, as I said, not a big fan of LOTR or The Goonies, LOL!

    This is interesting. I think it just proves that network TV is under siege. 45 million people watching a show on Neflix is a lot of people. https://www.mercurynews.com/2018/12/31/netflixs-bird-box-hits-big-45m-subscribers-watch-in-first-week/

    I Think Kaleys casting was arguably the most important. If you contrast it with Katie. She brought a bubbly energy. That lifted TBBT unaired pilot from drad, and weary. To uplifiting, compelling, and colorful.

    I ask again, does anyone know whether the writing crew churning out the dreck of the last few seasons are the same people who originally wrote the 3 wonderful characters Penny, Leonard and Sheldon ( I was going to say created, but the creation of P, L and S was a seamless collaboration between actors and writers)? So sad they've degraded what they once had.

    I am so, so, so embarrased! Patty Duke did NOT star in The Diary of Anne Frank. It was The Miracle Worker. She originated the role on Broadway and won an Academy Award for the movie version. In both versions she starred opposite Anne Bancroft. I am so embarrased and apologize for getting this so very very wrong.....

    Just Googled them. I know Kal Penn from HIMYM, don't know Sean Astin. With Prady's tweet I thought the casting will be someone well known in the sci-fi world, although maybe they're not who he meant.

    The thing with Netflix is, it's worldwide. Are these 45 million people all from the US? If you look at ratings, US network TV only counts in markets they broadcast.

    So true. Don't think the show would have lasted 12 years without any of the big 3!

    Take your time, I'm now busy getting some things done here, and will be getting ready for the California trip. The wife and I have several other places to see, besides the taping (Disneyland, Queen Mary, the WB tour, Hollywood, trip north on the Coast Highway, etc), there are several people I'm seeing out there, (Hi legacy). It's probably going to be several days after the 11th, before I have the time, to answer anything. I'll be checking in here every so often, to see if something needs to be done, but unless something goes extremely wrong, about the only thing I'll be posting will be the taping report Tuesday night. I have an answer April, but see my answer to Die above. I may get to when I get back, or more likely it will be old news and not worth pursuing.

    That is why I keep thinking there is something more behind her revelation not to have children. There could be so many explanations that people have commented on: the example you state of a medical problem, either she cannot conceive or has difficulty in conceiving; I recall some other poster suggesting that when she was with Kurt she actually got pregnant but had a miscarriage and now she is afraid that will happen with Leonard. But these scenarios seem a little far-fetched and might be too sensitive a topic to cover in a sit-com. I tend to think that she just has a fear of committment like she always gets when faced with big decisions. However they go it will be like you say a disservice to couples who prefer no children. So, yes they really dropped the ball on this one and it will be intriguing to see how they extricate themselves from this situation. I am sure the forum will be burning up when it is revealed.

    I think you misunderstood me, I’m not judging, I’m just trying to relate something that could be perceived as extreme during our time by people from another time. Also, I agree about your baby/children example but understand there are still cultures today that treat babies/children with handicaps or any sort of deformities that way. Finally, there are still some of those bad things that have never changed, such as we still persecute Christians after 2000 years and still murder in the name of religion.
