TVLine.com just announced today, Jan. 11 that two ‘Star Wars‘ stars are set to make special appearances on “The Big Bang Theory” later this season. James Earl Jones who played the voice of Darth Vader and Carrie Fisher who played Princess Leia in the “Star Wars” movies will be coming across Jim Parsons’ character, Sheldon. This should be interesting.
They will be playing themselves. This makes fans question what they will be doing there and how Sheldon will take them or rather how they will take Sheldon.
“The Big Bang Theory” is TV’s most-watched and highest-rated comedy as well as a syndication powerhouse, even in it’s seventh season. At this time there is no word on an eighth season as the main stars are still in contract negotiations. At this time, Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch, who plays Amy and Bernadette, have signed their new deals $60,000 per-episode.
The three leads, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, and Johnny Galecki are currently getting paid $300,000 per episde while holding out for a $200,000 raise to $500,000 while Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar get $125,000 and $75,000 and are looking for more as well.
More than likely if contract negations can be met the show will continue for multiple seasons.
