Bill Gates Scores 'Big Bang Theory' Role

Bill Gates Scores 'Big Bang Theory' Role He's a gazillionaire and a celebrated philanthropist, but Bill Gates hasn't yet appeared on the biggest show on TV. That will change next month when he is a guest star on The Big Bang Theory. Gates will play himself in a very special episode of Big Bang, joing the ranks of other rich people and celebrities who have appeared on the show.

Geek god Bill Gates is set to drop by “The Big Bang Theory” — and in doing so, cause quite a commotion.

The Microsoft founder will make a special guest-starring appearance as himself in a late March episode of TV’s No. 1 sitcom, when he attends a work function at Penny’s (played by Kaley Cuoco) pharmaceutical company. Getting wind of the VIP visit, Leonard, Sheldon et al do everything in their power to meet the computing icon.
