Stephen Hawking has reportedly filmed a cameo appearance on “The Big Bang Theory.”
The world’s most famous theoretical physicist will have a “run-in” with Sheldon, the scientist character played by Jim Parsons.
Their scene is reportedly part of the hit sitcom’s April 5 episode, according to TV Guide.
As it happens, Hawking’s guest spot will come just one week after another icon, Leonard Nimoy, drops in on the CBS show.
In the past, Hawking has appeared – as himself – in animated series “The Simpsons” and “Futurama.”
“The Big Bang Theory” has tried in the past to land him, but he’d reportedly been too ill.
