'Big Bang Theory' scoop: 'Switched at Birth' star will guest as Raj's [SPOILER]


Image Credit: Eric Mccandless

With his best friend altar-bound, Sheldon in the throes of a bizarre kinship with Amy Farrah Fowler, and Leonard juggling affection from two women, Raj has been the odd man out on The Big Bang Theory lately.

Well, that might change.

EW has learned Switched at Birth‘s Katie Leclerc will guest in the fourth episode of this season as a potential love interest for the love-challenged scientist.

Leclerc will appear in the Oct. 6 as Emily, a deaf friend of Penny’s who hits it off with Raj, who we know has problems with talking to women (while sober).

Clever loophole, I say! But what about you, readers? Love this love connection?

    Obama is a terrible president who destroyed our military and national pride. Additionally he hates our freedoms. We need a new President RICK PERYY

    • Chris

      Funny.. you can spell Obama with little issue, but not Perry?… Stick with what you know.

      • Chris

        Always amazing how the Republicans have poor spelling and grammar.

      • sally

        this is boring tv.. geez

      • Just Jules

        Maybe they meant pervy.. lol

    • mikeman

      you truly are a pathetic human being.

    • Bobby’s Robot

      Rick Peryy, Rick Parry…as long as it’s not Rick Perry.

      • Meg

        I thought it said Rick Pervy.

      • jules

        Another vote for Rick Pervy.

      • “Rick Pervy”

        I think that was Bill Clinton, wasn’t it?

    • jj

      What does this have to do with BBT. Nothing.

    • Talismangirl

      LAME – take your stupid political point of view elsewhere

    • GayChristian

      It’s actually might be better constructed as Rick Pervy if rumors out of text as true.

    • Mike II

      Ha retard can’t even spell!!!

    • Brian

      Your lack of knowledge is only surpassed by your lack of political awareness. If you want all public programs cut, including Medicare and SS, then join the MILLIONS of people struggling in the US today. Perry will deliver on that promise.

      • Liz

        Well, with our ZERO jobs president currently at the helm, where exactly are we supposed to get these tax funds for Medicare and SS?

    • Burt

      Get real. You spell it Parry, don’t you? At any rate, Parry panders to whomever is stupid enough to buy his bunch of manure. And, it seems to me that such comments don’t belong in this type of forum.

    • Javadude54

      You need some new talking points. It seems everything you do is parrot phrasing.

    • MORT47

      parry is 2 r dumba@@ and meant bush ruined this country

    • Rock Golf

      Perry as president? If you liked Bush, you’ll love Perry.

  • Remy

    There had been a joke in one of the previous seasons that Raj dated a deaf girl and it was the perfect situation for him since he didn’t have to talk. I’m curious if the writers forgot aout that or if it might be the same girl finally making an appearance – either way, I’m excited to see it!

    • Poppy

      It would not be the same girl as she is a friend of Penny’s. I love Katie on Switched at Birth. Since it was renewed for a second season she may have only a short arc on BB. But who knows, the shooting schedule may be different. I’m anxious to see how it all plays out.

      • i dont know

        I LOVE THIS!!!!!!! She is absolutely fantastic on Switched at Birth which is a terrfic show, and its about time Raj got a girlfriend. Also good for CBS showing a interracial couple, especially an indian man and white woman

    • Chris

      I think he said he made her up

  • Templar

    It seems the qwerty imp is affecting most people today. Curiouser and curiouser.

  • Ash

    Sounds good to me! I love Raj, he is so under appreciate by TBBT it’s ridiculous.

  • jj

    I’d love to see Raj have a love interest but I really wish it was Bernadette.

  • Brittany

    Can’t wait to see this episode.

  • Gregg

    A shy man like Raj needs a shy lady for a love interest. Can’t wait for the next BBT TV episode

  • camb1

    give me a break! I love “switched” but to see her on another show at the same time. I think she’s doing switched an injustice.

    • Liv

      Why? Because she’s taking a couple days off to film another show while “Switched” is on winter hiatus? Heaven forbid she want to work! The madness! Absolute MADNESS!

  • justsayin

    Wow he’s getting a gf that irl wouldnt look twice at a guy like that. Hooray for keeping the theme of a world where insanely hot girls really do like dating nerds. Remind me folks why do you guys watch this trash when there are better shows out there that dont think you’re too stupid to know when to laugh for yourselves?

  • Otis

    Nerds rule and get the hot chicks in real life too.

    • RR

      no. not really. but go on.

  • Eric

    You know what I’m sick of? All the sex on this show. I like that actress they’re talking about bringing in but do ALL of these guys have to get laid?

    The thing us geeks / nerds can relate to is not getting laid ALL THE DAMN TIME. Seriously getting sick of it.

    • @Eric

      See Otis ^^^

    • ryq

      yes! you are so right. i use to watch two and a half men but they shift to too much on sex. same thing seems to happen to big bang. hope the writers wake up ang go back to what made this show great.

      • spot on

        pretty much. What makes it even worst is the hotness of the girls vis a vis the men…on both shows.

        sexist piece of crap. and i thought the bbt was a great show early on….boy was i wrong

  • Jerry

    As long as they lose Blossom, they can do anything they want with the show.

  • Mandy

    @justsayin: sometimes there CAN be an exeption you *****! I don’t know in what shallow world you live in, but I think the reason why you’re not gettin’ any hasn’t got anything to do with your looks, but your sourpuss state of mind.
    What a pity…..

    Anyway, great show! A shame though that they keep showing reruns over in Holland..

  • Mandy

    @Otis: exactely!

  • ryq

    bush was the cause of all the problems american and the world is having right now. blaming obama is an attempt by the republicans and their tea party to shift the blame.
