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.
