Jerry O'Connell cast as Sheldon's brother

The Big Bang Theory is set to introduce Sheldon's older brother, Georgie Cooper, in the upcoming season finale, the producers revealed yesterday at PaleyFest.

Jerry O'Connell (Standy by Me, Sliders, Crossing Jordan) has been cast as Sheldon's "dumb as soup" brother, who is played by Montana Jordan on Young Sheldon. Unlike Sheldon's twin sister Missy, who we met in the first season of The Big Bang Theory, we have only heard references to Sheldon's brother so far.

The eleventh season finale, which will air Thursday, May 10, will cover Sheldon and Amy's wedding. Laurie Metcalf will be returning as Sheldon's mother, Mary, in the episode.

There was no word whether Sheldon's twin sister, Missy, who was played by Courtney Henggeler in "The Pork Chop Indeterminacy", or his Meemaw, played by June Squibb in "The Meemaw Materalization", will be returning for Sheldon and Amy's big day.

The Big Bang Theory returns to the UK, joins Young Sheldon

The Big Bang Theory's eleventh season will return to British TV screens later this month and will be joined by Young Sheldon, which is getting its UK debut.

E4 will resume airing the current season of The Big Bang Theory from Thursday, February 22 at 8pm. The digital broadcaster aired the first eleven episodes of the season late last year. Following the mid-season break, the show continues with "The Matrimonial Metric" which sees Sheldon and Amy try to determine who is most qualified to be best man and maid of honor at their wedding.

Young Sheldon will air right after The Big Bang Theory on Thursday nights at 8:30pm from February 22nd. E4 picked up the rights to the spin-off last year after the highly-rated premiere of the show in the United States. Young Sheldon, a single-camera comedy from The Big Bang Theory's Chuck Lorre and Steven Molaro, stars Iain Armitage as nine-year-old Sheldon Cooper growing up in East Texas, where his impressive intelligence isn't always an advantage when he starts high school.

Young Sheldon also stars Zoe Perry, real-life daughter of Laurie Metcalf who plays Sheldon's mother on The Big Bang Theory, as Mary Cooper, Lance Barber as George Sr., Montana Jordan as George Jr., Raegan Revord as Missy, and Annie Potts as Sheldon's beloved Meemaw.
