Riding high from its first-ever nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series, The Big Bang Theory rolled into Comic-Con today with a panel discussion that provided scoop about a resolution to the Penny-Raj hookup, the evolving (and perhaps kinky) relationship between Sheldon and Amy, and the possibility of a brewing rivalry between Best Actor in a Comedy nominees Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki. Read on for the whole sheBang!
Finale Follow-Up – As Executive Producer Bill Prady coyly puts it, “There will be a resolution” to that wonky finale hookup between Penny and Raj. “We think whichever way you came down on what happened, you’ll be happy with how it works out. ”
Guest-Star Scoop – “Sara Gilbert’s not available to us because she’s on CBS’ The Talk,” divulged Prady. In other words, don’t look for her Leslie Winkle to be back in Season 5 — though such things are often subject to change. As for who the cast would like to see on BBT again, Parsons is pulling for Barry Kripke (played by John Ross Bowie). “There’s an odd friendship there,” he says. “If he ever comes back, of course.”
Emmy Awards – Come September, Johnny Galecki and Jim Parsons will battle it out in the Lead Actor in a Comedy category. So is there any behind-the-scenes competition between the two? “Oh always,” deadpanned Galecki. “Since day 1.” Serious answer: No way.
“Sexy” Farrah Fowler – Bialik’s Amy is kinda kinky, right? Well, explains Prady, “Sheldon missed out on a lot growing up and he doesn’t care, while Amy missed out on a lot growing up, and she wants it. So the main difference between the two is that Amy is game — she wants to have some of the experiences she didn’t have.” Teased EP Chuck Lorre of her seemingly erotic nature, “Mayim is a very sexual actress. She’s a dirty, dirty girl, and as writers we try to write to the strengths of the actors. Full-frontal nudity this year!”
