The Big Bang Theory cast is about to be in some impressive company. Bill Gates has been confirmed to appear in an upcoming episode of the hit CBS comedy next month as himself.
The Microsoft founder and notorious billionaire will be hosted by Penny at her work, which of course results in the guys doing everything they can to meet him. This won’t be the first time that Sheldon will be meeting Gates though. On an earlier season, we learned that he was allegedly punched in the nose by Gates for approaching him after a speech to insult Windows Vista. Hopefully, things go better the second time around.
Gates’ appearance will be another addition to the slew of awesome cameos over the years for The Big Bang Theory including Carrie Fisher, Bill Nye, Stephen Hawking, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Buzz Aldrin, LeVar Burton, Steve Wozniak, and Stan Lee.
The Big Bang Theory returns to CBS on March 1 at 8 p.m. ET.
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
