“Nerds are back” Says Big Bang Theory Star Kunal Nayyar
On the final day of MCM London Comic Con, Melissa Rauch and Kunal Nayyar were joined by Jesse Eisenberg to talk The Big Bang Theory and Eisenberg’s latest play.
Sunday’s strangest panel at MCM London Comic Con saw two of The Big Bang Theory’s biggest stars joined by Jesse Eisenberg in a two-part panel to talk about both Eisenberg’s upcoming play, The Spoils, and The Big Bang Theory.
After a discussion of The Spoils, a play written by Eisenberg and starring both himself and Kunal Nayyar (who plays Raj on The Big Bang Theory), Melissa Rauch (who plays Bernadette) joined the panel to talk about the series. With The Big Bang Theory having been renewed for a tenth season, Nayyar talked about what it is that makes the series so successful.
“Where we got it right... is that we really celebrate nerd culture, that these guys are incredibly proud of who they are...
The Big Bang Theory is well-known for its array of famous guest stars, from Stephen Hawking to George Takei, so when the conversation turned to who should play Bernadette’s baby on the show, Nayyar and Rauch were quick to offer a suggestion.
“[Jesse Eisenberg] should be the baby!” Nayyar decided.
“I want to birth Jesse Eisenberg,” agreed Rauch, before Eisenberg chipped in with:
“I’ve also had that dream.”
“Next season, as it stands in our contracts could be the last season of the show… but if Jesse Eisenberg comes on the show we can have season 11, 12, 13, 14…
Nayyar told the audience: “Next season, as it stands in our contracts could be the last season of the show… but if Jesse [Eisenberg] comes on the show we can have season 11, 12, 13, 14…” he joked.
But, in all seriousness, will season ten be the final season of The Big Bang Theory?
“Look, to be completely honest… I don’t know what’s going to happen. But if were up to me, I would be happy to do the show as long as you guys wanted us on the air,” said Nayyar.
“I’d love to. We’ll see,” said Rauch.
Nayyar added: “If it were up to us, we’d do, like I said, we’d be here for you guys.”
“One hundred per cent,” agreed Rauch.
