Castle star, Nathan Fillion, is set to appear on the February 19 episode of The Big Bang Theory, titled “The Comic Book Store Regeneration.”
The Firefly-alum will play himself in the episode, as many famous sci-fi stars have in the past. Raj and Leonard think they’ve spotted him at a local restaurant and spend some time trying to figure out if it’s really one of their TV heroes.
Check out photos from what’s sure to be a hilarious encounter:
The photos don’t exactly leave me optimistic that the encounter will be quite as mutually beneficial or exciting as Raj and Leonard might think it is.
The official episode synopsis tells us a bit more about the entire episode:
“Wolowitz receives some shocking news as everyone prepares for the reopening of Stuart’s comic book store. Penny teaches Sheldon how to “let it go,” but can’t follow her own advice after she learns something infuriating about Amy. Also, Leonard and Raj think they spot Nathan Fillion at a restaurant…”
You can catch Nathan Fillion on The Big Bang Theory season 8, episode 16 “The Comic Book Store Regeneration” on Thursday, February 19 at 8PM EST on CBS.
