As “The Big Bang Theory” continues its tenth season, the cast are dealing with even crazier theories from the show’s fans. They have gotten more and more creative as the show has gone on and Jim Parsons is finally addressing some of the more ludicrous theories.
Parsons, who plays Sheldon Cooper on the hit show, did a segment for “The Late Late Show with James Corden” to tackle these questionable theories. All the theories were found on Reddit and while he had fun with some of them, he debunked nearly each one.
Some of the insane theories? Is Bernadette really a cyborg that was created by Howard? Is Sheldon actually Spock in disguise, because Sheldon can hear Spock’s voice and both are emotionless?
“Well, that certainly can’t be God’s intent. God being the writer in this case,” he joked. “I can see how you can make this work for you. But I can’t play that as an actor. I’m not playing that,” he quickly dismissed the Spock theory.
One of the weirdest theories: Sheldon is actually Barney Stinson from “How I Met Your Mother” but in another universe.
Cooper revealed he actually auditioned for the role that eventually went to Neil Patrick Harris. “I find this fascinating that you’ve got this theory at all. Maybe I’m giving that vibe off. Maybe underneath this character I’m playing is a raging horndog. This one I think is as close to the truth as one’s going to get,” he said.
