Breaking News: Eliza Dushku Has a 'Big Bang Theory'

by Laura Prudom, posted Sep 23rd 2010 11:30AM
Eliza Dushku'The Big Bang Theory' is no stranger to sexy sci-fi starlets, having scored geektastic cameos from Katee Sackhoff and Summer Glau in seasons past (with the former about to make a hotly anticipated reappearance) -- but this latest casting coup is certain to get fanboy hearts a'fluttering.

Having earned her action credentials as butt-kicking Faith in 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' and the enigmatic Echo in 'Dollhouse,' it's no surprise that 'The Big Bang Theory' tapped Eliza Dushku to play yet another strong female character.

So far, she's confirmed to appear in one episode of the CBS comedy's fourth season (now airing Thursdays at 8PM ET). Join us after the jump for more info on what we can expect when Dushku makes her 'Big Bang' bow.

Details are sparse at this stage of the game (Dushku's character is as-yet unnamed), but a rep for the comedy confirmed that Dushku will appear in episode 7, playing an FBI agent who has the unenviable task of interviewing Wolowitz's (Simon Helberg) friends to ascertain whether our tight-pant wearing engineer should be granted top level security clearance. Something pertaining to his work with NASA, perhaps?

Somehow, if Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) is involved, we're guessing that Wolowitz's case isn't looking too great -- but if Wolowitz succeeds, just imagine the slew of new pick-up lines he can use. Nothing impresses a woman like secret government access, right?

The fourth season of 'The Big Bang Theory' premieres tonight at 8PM ET on CBS.


What do you think of Dushku's 'Big Bang' cameo? Should Wolowitz really have unrestricted access to classified government secrets? Which other sci-fi hotties would you love to see on 'The Big Bang Theory'? Share your thoughts below!

I want to see her be the one to cure Koothrappali of his muteness with girls--like beat it out of him or something.

Not the beating part, but I hope the producers listen to the idea of her bringing K out of his fear of speaking in the presense of attractive women. She is perfect for that, and that quirk had its benefits at first but is now an annoyance.

I'm always interested to learn when Eliza Dushku will next be on my television or movie screen. Even if its on a show I don't watch ala "The Big Bang Theory" or "Ugly Beatty". I miss seeing many of the "Buffy" and "Angel" cast on a weekly basis. Stop cancelling shows that star or include "Buffy/Angel" castmembers. Okay we have Alison Hannigan for "How I Met Your Mother" but first we lose "DollHouse" and then we lose "HappyTown" with Amy Acker. I'm just saying, I don't like all the time in between their tv/movie projects.

Yes!
I'd love Wolowitz to have something over Sheldon for once. after years of second class status for not having a PhD, it would be refreshing for him to come out on top.
