Simon Helberg

It's not him. That script cover is from Season 6 Episode 2 and it's from Bill's twitter. I honestly don't understand why Kaley follows it. She should know it's a fake one.

 

She doesn't/didn't follow it.  That person posted something that made it look like she was following.  I searched her list of people she followed and that account was nowhere on there.  None of them were.

 

I think the faker posted a screen shot of something else where Kaley had posted a comment or a like or something, as I recall.

 

Anyway, Kunal called him out and he has now changed the bio to read that it's a fan acouunt.  As of last night, though, he/she/it had not changed the misleading username.

I thought Simon was amazing last night. He gave a very good and very realistic performance in the episode.

Everyone always talks about how Jim and Mayim should be nominated for awards, and while they are deserving, Simon has really had a chance to shine this season and I feel definitely deserves to be nominated. He's had so many great scenes, it's hard to pick my favorite, but I think that he should submit Leftover Thermalization.

Sadly he isn't even on the radar with pundits, experts and even fans.   I agree that I think Simon deserves a nod, but with MF having all their guys under his category he can't even get an inch toward the goal.   Likewise with the new "It" shows like transparent, etc. there are newbies that will have to fight for attention to get noticed.   

 

The Academy is a funny group.  They stick with the same people until a new "it" show hits and then knock out the lowest one on the rung for the newbies.   So far Mayim and Jim are holding strong as likely nominees, but for the rest of the cast they are not even being looked at it seems.

I actually think Simon stands a chance for a nomination now that they can have 7 in one category.

Does he deserve it more than Kunal though? I would say that Kunal has been just as good as Simon all season, and with neither really 'on the radar', it's anybody's game when it comes to nominations.

I actually think due to the nature of the material, Simon has far surpassed Kunal in terms of Emmy worthy performances. 

 

Love Kunal, but I also thought Simon was hands down one of the most talented of the cast.

I agree and Simon has been sadly overlooked thoughout the years.

From The Hollywood Reporter: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/big-bang-theory-star-simon-816657

'Big Bang Theory' Star Simon Helberg Inks Pod Deal With Warner Bros. TV

Warner Bros. Television is extending its relationship with Big Bang Theory star Simon Helberg.

The actor, one of the core regulars on TV's No. 1 comedy among adults under 50, has signed an exclusive two-year pod deal with the studio behind the nerdy series, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Under the pact, Helberg — who has played Howard Wolowitz on the series since its inception — and his writer/director/actress wife Jocelyn Towne will develop new series via their newly launched production banner, Wildline Entertainment. As part of the pact, Helberg and Towne have tapped former movie producer Cora Olson (Good Dick) to head development for the company. The deal extends Olson's relationship with the couple, with the trio previously teaming on Towne's debut feature I Am I.

Definitely actors always have to think ahead....and I am sure many of them have had interests in these areas before.  I know Jim  and Melissa have production companies and Simon has been producing for a while and Johnny has one.   Not sure if Kaley, Kunal and Mayim are interested in that or not.   They seem to be sticking with other interests for now, along with acting...but I am sure all of them are well aware that this show has two more seasons, possibly three or four more but not likely many beyond that.   So yes...I think all of them are thinking ahead.

Acclaimed Actor Simon Helberg to Narrate SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE

http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/acclaimed-actor-simon-helberg-to-narrate-secrets-of-the-universe-300138189.html?tc=eml_cleartime

 In the latest hi-tech 3D giant screen film, SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE, Helberg's narration will take audiences on a mind-boggling journey to the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland, where CERN scientists are exploring the very origins of our universe - from the Big Bang, to some of the greatest potential breakthrough discoveries of our time regarding the universe in which we live and experiments that could result in turning science fiction into science fact. This is a topic that he is very familiar with and where his comedic genius has long inspired significant public interest.

How did it all begin?  Where is our world and universe heading?  Why do we see less than 10% of the universe?  Are their extra dimensions? Directed and produced by legendary Canadian Imax filmmaker Stephen Low, SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE will tackle these questions, and more, in a way that is fresh, engaging and accessible to the average viewer.  Consider it an adventure to uncover some of the greatest mysteries in the cosmos.

According to Helberg, "When K2 approached me to narrate the film, I was thrilled at the opportunity to engage audiences and hopefully educate children on such an important area of science. I can only imagine how tall I'd look on a giant Imax screen in 3D, but just hearing my booming, masculine voice will have to suffice."

The film will be executive produced and distributed by K2 Communications, a leading independent documentary film studio and distributor of films for Imax® and other giant screen theaters.  According to K2 President Mark Kresser, "We are thrilled to have Simon narrate our film.  He is the perfect fit for our project and has the ability to make a challenging discipline of science understandable, and even fun, for a broad audience."

SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE is slated to premiere in early 2017.  The film will show in some of the most prestigious science centers and museums as it rolls out on a staggered basis to markets across the U.S. and around the world.  Along with theatrical distribution, the film will be released on TV, home video and all other ancillary formats.  In all, more than 300 million viewers are expected to see the film over its lifetime.
