Bill Gates to make a 'Big Bang'

The Big Bang Theory is about to get a visit from a very special guest - in the shape of Bill Gates.

Gates will be playing himself in the episode, which reportedly sees Kaley Cuoco's character Penny hosting him at work - with the others going to some pretty extreme lengths in a bid to meet him.

Bill Gates will have a guest appearance in The Big Bang Theory.

The Microsoft founder-turned-billionaire philanthropist will play himself in a March episode of the series, EW reports. Gates played himself back in 2001 in a guest shot on Frasier in that show's ninth season.

Dolphins place franchise tag on 3-time Pro Bowl WR Landry
The person didn't want to be identified because the Dolphins haven't publicly discussed contract negotiations with Landry. And even if you think he is, it still doesn't make a lot of sense for Miami to apply the tag as early as the team did.

The Big Bang Theory is now in its eleventh season. The nerd herd are fans of any, and all, powerful, smart, tech masterminds, so it seems only fitting that Gates would eventually make his way onto an episode of the hit CBS comedy. The odds are pretty good that Bill Gates will have an easier time playing a fictionalized version of himself than trying to become an actor at this point in life, but we'll have to wait and see just how amusing he is on a sitcom.

New episodes of The Big Bang Theory return at 8 PM Thursday, March 1, on CBS.

The Big Bang Theory has hosted a number of geeky heroes over the years, including Stars Trek and Wars favorites LeVar Burton and Carrie Fisher, scientists Stephen Hawking and Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.
