Stephen Hawking Corrects Sheldon On 'Big Bang'

Stephen Hawking has done several guest appearances on television shows over the years, but perhaps none of them felt quite as right as when he appeared as himself on " The Big Bang Theory " (Thu., 8 p.m. ET on CBS). After all, there is no bigger fan of the brilliant physicist than Sheldon Cooper, who considers himself Hawking's only equal. When he found out that Howard had been selected as the engineer to help keep Hawking's specialized wheelchair in tip top shape during his lecture stay, Sheldon was beside himself with jealousy. But realizing he had the upper hand for once, Howard first had him perform a series of humiliating stunts, before admitting that he'd already given Dr. Hawking Sheldon's paper. The doctor wanted to meet Sheldon to tell him it was impressive work, save for a miscalculation. Hawking insisted on doing the voice work himself for his guest spot, rather than let producers add in his signature mechanical voice later. And he proved quite adept, as Simon Helberg noted on his Twitter feed, at comedic timing. Watch "The Big Bang Theory" every Thursday at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.

'Big Bang Theory' sneak peak: Sheldon meets his hero

It's not often (if ever) that Sheldon (Jim Parsons) grovels to anyone, much less Howard (Simon Helberg). But that's what's going to happen on Thursday's (April 5) episode of "The Big Bang Theory." In some sneak peak photos of the show, we see Dr. Cooper kissing a little butt in an effort to meet Wolowitz's co-worker, Stephen Hawking. It looks to be a success as we see photos of Parsons alongside the noted theoretical physicist.Parsons recently explains the whole experience of working with Hawking was "insane and intense." He adds that Hawking, despite his medical condition, was a complete pro on set and "demanded to control every take himself."The episode airs at 8 p.m. ET. on CBS.... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/04/big-bang-theory-sneak-peak-sheldon-meets-his-hero.html
