The Big Bang Theory Casting News: Sara Gilbert

by at . Comments

We have some very sad news for The Big Bang Theory fans who loved Sara Gilbert as much as we did.  According to Ausiello Files, Sara has been demoted from a series regular to just the occasional guest star.

Ausiello's insider said that they weren't able to generate enough stories for Gilbert's character, Leslie Winkle, who was once romantically involved with Leonard (Johnny Galecki), but no longer is.  Fun fact for you non-Gilbert fans is that Gilbert and Galecki played lovers on the show Rosanne, which Big Bang's Chuck Lorre was also involved in.

Leslie and Leonard's Date

Though Big Bang spokespeople did not comment, sources close to the show did say that "Sara has a long-standing relationship with Chuck Lorre that dates back to their Roseanne days.  He adores her, and he will continue to use her on the show."

How soon can we expect to see her?  Gilbert will be in the next episode, "The Financial Permeability" set to air in February.

TBBT Quotes

Penny, there's only one cookie with something in the middle that solves life's problems, and that's an Oreo. Or a Nutter Butter, if you're in a pinch.

Sheldon

Penny: Here's a question-- as an alien pretending to be human, are you planning to engage in any post-prom mating rituals with Amy?
Sheldon: There are post-prom mating rituals?
Penny: Not always. Unless your date drives a van with an air mattress, then always.
Sheldon: Well, if it's part of the prom experience, then I'm open to it.
Penny: You're kidding.
Sheldon: I may be an alien, but I have urges.If Amy wants to copulate by firing her eggs into space, well, then, I will happily catch them with the reproductive sac on my upper flermin. I'm not the best at reading facial cues, but I can see that you're a little turned on.
