The Big Bang Theory has had no shortage of great geek culture guest stars in its seven seasons on the air. The show has nabbed two new guest stars that has made season eight so highly anticipated. That’s because Star Wars veterans Carrie Fisher and James Earl Jones are set to guest star as themselves on the show.
Fisher portrayed Princess Leia in the original Star Wars films, while Jones will always be remembered as the voice of Darth Vader. TVLine reports that executive producers Bill Prady and Steve Molaro confirmed that both actors would portray themselves and would cross paths with Sheldon.
With all the buzz around the new Star Wars film, season eight of The Big Bang Theory already seems to be a memorable one.
The Big Bang Theory airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.
