Tonight, The Big Bang Theory will show its season finale, where two characters will finally tie the knot.
Wil Wheaton will be playing himself on the show. Other guest stars include Kathy Bates, Mark Hamill and Laurie Metcalf.
Wheaton spoke about the episode and his part in it. “I don’t want to spoil anything, but I will tell you that everything does not know exactly the way you expect it to go,” he said. “But I think it will be very satisfying for everyone who’s watching.”
Wheaton’s character is “really excited to be part of the wedding,” explained Wheaton. “It’s one of the very few times that the Wil Wheaton who I am in real life and the Wil Wheaton who I play on Big Bang Theory really overlap into almost a perfect circle.”
So what is it like to play himself on the show? “It took me a long time to get used to playing a version of myself,” said Wheaton. “I had a great conversation with Mark Hamill about this, because Mark is playing a version of himself as well. He was saying, it’s hard to wrap your head around playing a version of yourself because you almost feel like, I am giving my actual real-life endorsement to the things that the character version of is saying and doing, and that might not necessarily be the case.”
Wheaton is “geeked out,” to be sharing the screen with his fellow guest stars. “It was so exciting to be there with all these amazing people. The thing that I didn’t expect, and I’m so glad I didn’t take for granted, is that everybody was really excited to be there with us. I think it’s a really special episode. The script is really good, [and] it’s got this great balance of humor and warmth in it. But just to be there on the set with these phenomenally talented actors and comedians was one of those ‘I can’t believe I’m really getting to do this’ moments that I’ll cherish for the rest of my life.”
The Big Bang Theory: The Bow Tie Asymmetry episode will air tonight at 8 PM on CBS.
