One of, if not, the most famous scientists ever Stephen Hawking will be making an appearance on The Big Bang Theory.
In a press release from CBS today, it was announced that the famed theoretical physicist and cosmologist will be showing up on the April 5th episode of the show. He will, of course, be playing himself and will make a stop at the University to talk with Sheldon.
“When people would ask us who a ‘dream guest star’ for the show would be, we would always joke and say Stephen Hawking – knowing that it was a long shot of astronomical proportions,” said Executive Producer Bill Prady. “In fact, we’re not exactly sure how we got him. It’s the kind of mystery that could only be understood by, say, a Stephen Hawking.”
