Married on "Roseanne," Sara Gilbert and Johnny Galecki are set to reteam on his new CBS comedy.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gilbert will do a multi-episode arc on CBS' "Big Bang Theory," returning to the Monday, 8:30 p.m. slot where she was most recently seen as a recurring guest star on "The Class."
"Big Bang Theory" focuses on a pair of physicists (Galecki and Jim Parsons) who know an awful lot about science, but very little about the normal world until a babe (Kaley Cuoco) moves into the apartment across the hall. Gilbert will play a more realistic love interest for Galecki's character, a fellow physicist.
CBS' Monday comedies have gotten a decent amount of press in recent weeks for entertaining on-screen reunions. "Rules of Engagement," for example, will team alleged former couple David Spade and Heather Locklear, while "Seinfeld" vets Jason Alexander and Julia Louis-Dreyfus on "The New Adventures of Old Christine."
Gilbert picked up a pair of Emmy nominations for her long run as Darlene on "Rosanne." She didn't pick up any nominations for her most recent regular series gig as one of the stars of The WB's "Twins." She's also recurred on "E.R." and "24."Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
