March 13, 2012 by staff 

Stephen Hawking: Stephen Hawking’s CBS Cameo, Renowned physicist Stephen Hawking is adding an appearance on TV’s The Big Bang Theory to his list of pop culture cameos.

The celebrated astrophysicist and author of A Brief History of Time has reportedly filmed his scene, slated to appear on the April 5 episode of the top-rated U.S. sitcom.

Executive producer Bill Prady had recently teased fans via Twitter about a “super-secret, super-cool” guest star for the upcoming episode.

Hawking will appear opposite Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning actor Jim Parsons, who plays the brilliant but socially awkward theoretical physicist Sheldon Cooper on the CBS comedy.

Hawking, who Big Bang Theory producers have long sought for a guest spot, plays himself. The scientist is frequently mentioned on the comedy which revolves around a quartet of nerdy scientists and the outgoing actress who lives next door.

The show has featured a host of guest stars with “geek” and sci-fi cred, from actors like Leonard Nimoy (who makes a voice appearance the week before Hawking’s) and Wil Wheaton to comic book icon Stan Lee to scientists such as George Smoot and Brian Greene.
