The Big Bang Theory has had guests from all sorts of nerdom, from entertainment to those who contributed more to society.
Among these names have been Stan Lee, Bob Newhart, Buzz Aldrin, George Takei, Leonard Nimoy, Stephen Hawking, Adam West and even Steve Wozniak. One nerd god had eluded them, that is until now and tonight’s episode. Microsoft founder Bill Gates guest stars on tonight’s episode, and as excited as fans are, as it turns out, the cast was able to nerd out as well.
In the episode, Leonard, Howard, and Raj meet Bill Gates who is meeting with Penny about merging their companies, and Sheldon thinks it’s an April Fools Day prank. In the above interview, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco talk about their guest star’s comedy chops and how the entire cast nerded out, and Bill Gates talks about his experience with the show.
‘The Big Bang Theory’ airs tonight, March 29, 2018, with the episode titled “The Gates Excitation” at 8 PM EST on CBS.
