It's a match made in TV geek heaven: The Big Bang Theory has tapped erstwhile Blossom star Mayim Bialik to guest star (and possibly recur) as a potential love interest for Sheldon.
As first teased in EW's Ask Ausiello; Bialik's character, Victoria, gets paired with Sheldon on an eHarmony-type matchmaking service and with good reason. She's described as the female version of Jim Parson's theoretical physicist.
Bialik, who has a recurring role as the high school guidance counsellor on The Secret Life of The American Teenager, will appear in Big Bang's May 24 season finale and could return next season in a recurring capacity.
The casting comes amid a flurry of female activity for Sheldon. Judy Greer will "spend the night" with him in early May.
