‘Young Sheldon’ stars give back to Houston schools

SPRING — It’s not every day that Hollywood lands in the far northern reaches of Harris County.

Sure, there are no celebrity-crowded red carpets, sky-sweeping klieg lights or pushy paparazzi, but that doesn’t make it any less of an event for the approximately 1,000 high school and elementary students assembled in the gym at Klein Oak High School in Spring last Monday.

They are there to greet the young stars of the CBS sitcom “Young Sheldon” — the hit prequel to the long-running “The Big Bang Theory” — who had flown in the previous day and would be leaving the next.

“I am so excited to be here and support you guys,” enthuses Iain Armitage, 10, who plays the show’s titular boy genius who grows up to be the nerdy know-it-all portrayed by Jim Parsons in “The Big Bang Theory” at the assembly. “I’ve been so excited for the last few weeks.”

But Klein’s name wasn’t just plucked randomly out of a hat and bestowed a quick visit by Armitage as well as co-stars Montana Jordan, 15, who plays his older brother, Georgie, and Raegan Revord, 10, who plays his twin sister, Missy. After all, they probably could have avoided the wear and tear of travel and just stayed in LA, maybe attend television’s biggest night, the Emmy Awards, that were also taking place Monday.

But anybody who knows anything about TV and Texas knows these essential facts: “Young Sheldon,” which begins its second season 7:30 p.m. Monday, is set in East Texas; and Parsons hails from the Houston area and attended the three schools — Klein Oak High, Strack Intermediate and Haude Elementary — whose students are in attendance.

Iain Armitage, Montana Jordan, and Raegan Revord are scheduled to appear on Steve this Wednesday, October 3rd. The episode is listed as "new" and says that they will "try to identify gadgets from the 1980s." I thought they already did this, but my TV guide is showing that this is a new episode with the "10/3/18" date, so I guess this is a new segment...
