Bill Gates is a lot of things but he’s not a professional actor. Perhaps that’s why he’s going to be playing himself and not a character on hit network TV show The Big Bang Theory next month. According to a report, Gates’ guest appearance in an episode of The Big Band Theory will have the other characters clamoring for a chance to meet him.
According to CNN, Kaley Cuoco’s Penny will be hosting Gates at work in next month’s episode and her gang of friends will try everything to get a chance to meet the tech icon and philanthropist.
The episode’s plot makes sense because the show’s main characters are all tech-obsessed and one would obviously expect them to be excited meeting someone such as Gates. What’s unclear right now is that whether Gates will simply be making a cameo in the episode or if he’s going to have a star role throughout the entire episode.
Regardless of the manner of his appearance, the show will likely reference his work at Microsoft as well as his philanthropy. Gates will be joining a long list of famous figures from the tech and science word who have made appearances on the show, they include the likes of Elon Musk, Stephen Hawking, Steve Wozniak, and Buzz Aldrin.
