Star Trek‘s original Spock and “not-quite-retired” actor, Leonard Nimoy is set for a cameo appearance on the CBS hit comedy, The Big Bang Theory.
According to a report on TVLine, Nimoy will lend his voice to an episode set to air on March 29th during a dream being had by Jim Parson’s character, Doctor Sheldon Cooper.
“For years, we thought it would be fantastic to have Leonard Nimoy appear on the show and we think we’ve found a really different and fun way to make that happen,” executive producer Steve Molaro told The Hollywood Reporter. “As thrilled as we are he’s doing it, we’re even more thrilled just to get our pictures taken with him.”
The Big Bang Theory has featured several Star Trek guest stars in the past, including LeVar Burton, Wil Wheaton, Brent Spiner and George Takei.
Watch the stars of the show play “Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock” in the clip below.
