As a viewer, I owe the Big Bang Theory many hilarious moments. That is why I wasn’t surprise one bit at the amount of entertainment I had doing this research. While production was indeed helpful and some cast members more friendly than others, I actually learned many new facts from speaking with some surprising people, such as a cast member’s personal injury attorney and the studio’s electrician. The following will surprise and sometimes shock you!
Jim Parsons has never actually seen Star Trek.
Like his friends, Sheldon is super obsessed with Star Trek and even takes Wil Wheaton’s character all too personally, to the point that he’s considered him his biggest arch enemy in real life. But the truth is, the actor who plays Sheldon (Jim Parsons) has never actually watched Star Trek — possibly not even a single episode! Well, at least he got to learn a lot about the show in his script.
