If there was any doubt that the toolish Wil Wheaton character on The Big Bang Theory is a very fictionalized version of the real Wil Wheaton, well, read on, and that doubt won’t last much longer than anyone caught in the path of a phaser set to kill.
On The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon Cooper ranks Wil Wheaton as his sixth all-time enemy — his contempt for the Star Trek: The Next Generation actor dates back to a 1995 convention that Sheldon traveled to via 10-hour bus ride to meet his childhood hero, only to discover upon arrival that Wil Wheaton hadn’t shown up.
The real-life Wheaton wrote a post on his Facebook page Tuesday about a full weekend of meeting fans that was decidedly different from Sheldon’s no-show story. The post starts out as a rather familiar and typical story about the joy a life-long geek-turned-famous finds in paying it forward at conventions, meeting fans who stand in line for hours to get his autograph and to share their appreciation for his work, much as he did at conventions growing up. Wheaton explains that last weekend at MegaCon in Orlando, Fla., he met “dozens of people who told me that they were scientists, engineers, doctors, or programmers because they were inspired by Wesley Crusher.”
But his story turns worthy of a PopWatch post with the word “tearjerker” in the headline when Wheaton begins to recount one meeting with a fan “that stands out, that moved me so much, I’ve been struggling to find the right words to recount it.” He ends the post — about meeting a fan who recovered from illness and years later was well enough to come to his signing– by saying “I’m still overwhelmed when I think about what that means, and how I was part of it.” PopWatchers, grab a box of tissues and read an excerpt from his story below, then click over to Wheaton’s Facebook page for the full recounting: READ FULL STORY »
Big Bang Theory
Big Bang Theorywill hit the stage at PaleyFest tonight, but tonight’s event is also a special one.
It marks the first time a Paley panel will be streamed live from select theaters across the country. (See participating theaters close to you here.) To celebrate the occasion, EW asked Kunal Nayyar to participate in our Pop Culture Personality Test.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Before we start, how are you feeling about being on the big screen?
Kunal Nayyar: At this point I can only speak for myself. It doesn’t make me nervous. If it was just me, and it was all this big stuff, it would probably make me nervous. But having the cast and producers there, [it will] feel like we’re just hanging on set. There’s a kinship and a friendship [among us]. We’re a family, so when we’re all on stage together, it’s just fun and a chance for people to see how we are off-screen.
Well, appropriately, I’ll start off your quiz with a movie-themed question: What was the last movie you saw on the big screen?
Argo. I loved it. I don’t think I’ve met anyone who doesn’t love it. READ FULL STORY »
Just because most people don’t do a Golden Globes pool doesn’t mean you can’t predict if Homeland will build on its Emmy domination. Let’s take the 11 TV categories to a vote. Remember, this is who you think will win, not necessarily who you want to win. READ FULL STORY »
Raj: “Sometimes I get so lonely, I sit on my left hand until it goes numb then I put it in my right hand and pretend I’m holding hands with another person.”
Amy: “I do that to. Sometimes the left hand tries to cop a feel… and I let it.”
–Raj (Kunal Nayyar) and Amy (Mayim Bialik) on The Big Bang Theory

On the twelfth day before Christmas, the universe sent to me a Rajtastic episode of The Big Bang Theory.
After a string of storylines centered around the BBT lovebirds in which Raj was reduced to the role of cast jester, our favorite astrophysicist returned with a bang tonight. While the boys played up the geek stereotype while simultaneously playing Dungeons & Dragons, Koothrappali joined the gals, who were reaffirming some stereotypes of their own by sporting scant apparel, for a girls night out. Southern California — where women can dress down all four seasons of the year. This Christmas-themed episode was no “Bath Item Gift Hypothesis,” but it was hilarious and heartfelt, nonetheless.
