Leonard Nimoy set for 'Big Bang Theory' cameo

Legendary Star Trek actor Leonard Nimoy is set for a cameo role in the March 29 episode of The Big Bang Theory, according to TVLine.com.

TVLine's exclusive report suggests the Spock actor, who has largely retired from on-screen acting, will speak to Sheldon in a dream sequence but will not be seen.

The Big Bang Theory producers have previously stated their desire to have Nimoy guest star on the show, calling him their 'dream' guest star. Many mentions of Nimoy and his famed character Spock have been made in the show, including a memorable scene where Sheldon receives a napkin signed and used by Mr. Spock himself.

Sheldon's reaction when he realised he had Leonard Nimoy's DNA on the signed napkin from Penny is hilarious and is one of my favourite BBT moments so a cameo by the man himself should be even better.

Yes koalas are marsupials, but are still called koala bears.

BTW Sheldon was wrong on one of the shows. Yes in Texas there are beans in chili. That is what chili is. Chili carn carne is with meat.

Sheldon likes koala bears? They aren't bears, they're marsupials

Spock would be awesome! But don't forget about Kirk or Picard. I think a neat idea would be a dream sequence involving Sheldon and 7 of 9.
