The November 5th episode of the Big Bang Theory will most likely make you laugh and cry when Leonard Nimoy’s son makes a guest appearance.
The son of the late Leonard Nimoy, Adam Nimoy will appear as himself when he guest stars on an up coming episode of the hit CBS comedy titled “The Sock Resonance”. Adam Nimoy stops by Leonard and Sheldon’s apartment to ask Sheldon to be a part of a documentary about the late Star Trek icon.
If your a fan of the show you may remember that Leonard Nimoy provided his voice for an episode of the Big Bang Theory when Sheldon dreams that his Spock action figure is speaking to him.
Even though Mr. Nimoy has never physically appeared on the show, Nimoy and his character of Spock have been mentioned off and on during the shows run in different episodes.
Penny gave Sheldon a napkin signed by Leonard Nimoy in the second season Christmas episode, it’s been mentioned a few times that Sheldon was issued a restraining order to keep away from Leonard Nimoy, Sheldon has dressed up as Spock on at least one ocasion and who could forget “Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock.”
“The Spock Resonance” will air on November 5th when it returns to its normal Thursday night time slot.
Leonard Nimoy passed away back in February at the age of 83 from complications of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. His last pro-trail as Spock on the big screen came in 2013 when he made a brief cameo in the second rebooted Star Trek movie “Into Darkness”.
Adam Nimoy in real life is putting together an actual documentary about the character his father played over five decades, “For the Love of Spock”.
In an interview about the documentary Adam said “I had read a number of books on the making of ‘Star Trek’ and just felt that there was a lot that was missing about the creation and evolution of Spock that we should re-tell in film form.”
Back in March I started my 9th podcast by paying tribute to Leonard Nimoy and his passing. I’ve posted that tribute below for those who may not have had the chance to hear it.
