'The Big Bang Theory': Evil Wil Wheaton returns
Evil Wil Wheaton will return to the CBS comedy for an episode later this season, a network rep confirms to Zap2it. Evil Wil Wheaton is really just Wil Wheaton playing a not-very-nice version of himself, but we like the way it sounds.
Wheaton is scheduled to do a table read of the episode with the cast Wednesday (Feb. 24) and tape the episode next week. It should air sometime in April.
The former "Star Trek: The Next Generation" star wrote on his blog that he's excited to return as Sheldon's (Jim Parsons) nemesis: "Even though my personal motto is Don't Be A D**k, I've wanted to play an arch enemy for pretty much my entire career, and I love that ['Big Bang Theory' co-creator] Bill [Prady] described me that way, because I was kind of hoping I'd earn that position in the 'Big Bang' canon."
Wheaton made a geek-tastic first appearance on the show in October in an episode replete with "Trek" references and revolving around Sheldon seeking revenge on his No. 6 enemy via a fantasy role-playing card game. Here are some highlights from that episode.
