THE BIG BANG THEORY – Where it all began for the cast

“Bazinga!”  The Big Bang Theory is 100 episodes old (well by the time I post this it will be well on its way to 101 episodes)!

This sitcom, about 2 socially awkward scientists, their friends, and their gorgeous neighbour, has been a slow burner – picking up new fans, and awards, each season.

This is not the first TV show for most of the The Big Bang Theory cast. Many of them are experiencing being a part of a hit show for a second (and for some, third) time. So instead of looking back at some of the best moments of the past 100 shows, I thought I would look back at where it all began for the cast of this successful show.

Johnny Galecki – Leonard Hofstadter
From 1992 – 1997, Johnny played David Healy, Darlene’s (Sara Gilbert) love interest, in the popular 90’s comedy Roseanne.

Jim Parsons – Sheldon Cooper
From 2004 – 2005, Jim played Rob Holbrook in the legal drama Judging Amy

Kaley Cuoco – Penny
From 2002 – 2005, Kaley played the boy crazy Bridget on 8 Simple Rules … For Dating My Teenage Daughter

Simon Helberg – Howard Wolowitz
Before The Big Bang Theory Simon was on 2 shows that starred former Friends actors. From 2004 – 2006, Simon  played Seth, in Matt Le Blanc’s Joey and from 2006 – 2007 he was on Matthew Perry’s Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip

Kunal Nayyar – Raj Koothrappali
This is Kunal’s first sitcom. Below is a clip of Kunal on the Hollywood 411

Mayim Bialik – Amy Farrah Fowler
Mayim played the girl everyone wanted to be in the 90s, the girl with the hat, Blossom, in the hit sitcom of the same name.

That’s Entertainment!

About The Bellissimo Files

Hi, I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents! As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen! This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t. Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings. Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions. I also appear on TV3’s “Elaine” panel, talk movies on “Ireland AM” and you can sometimes hear me filling in on Moncrieff’s “Movies and Booze “(Newstalk) The Bellissimo Files is constantly evolving. Files (topics) will be added or deleted as time goes on. Feel free to read, watch, comment, share, and make suggestions for what you would like to see on the site. Sarina
