Johnny Galecki Discusses 'Roseanne,' 'Big Bang' and 'Entourage' on 'Good Day LA' (VIDEO)

Johnny Galecki talks about 'Roseanne,' 'Big Bang Theory,' and 'Entourage' on 'Good Day LA'Johnny Galecki has fond memories of 'Roseanne,' that predate his role on the show. He reminisced on 'Good Day LA' (weekdays, 9AM PT on Fox) about watching the first episode with his family, and also talked about what he's been doing in the offseason before filming begins again for 'The Big Bang Theory.'

Galecki said his 'Roseanne' role started as a one-episode deal when he was 16, but stretched to three episodes and then three years when Roseanne Barr asked him to join the cast permanently. He still keeps in touch with Sara Gilbert, and would love to have her back on 'Big Bang' if she could find the time. "She was on 'Big Bang,' I think she did maybe a half a dozen episodes in the last couple of seasons," he said, "and we'd love to have her back but she's busy with 'The Talk' right now."

Jim Parsons, 'The Big Bang Theory'The cast of CBS' hit comedy 'The Big Bang Theory' sure knows how to make an entrance at Comic-Con. The men and women behind TV's number one sitcom were greeted like rockstars in a filled-to-capacity Ballroom 20, and AOL TV caught up with them right after for all the scoop on Season 5 (premieres Thurs., Sept. 22, 8PM ET on CBS).

Okay, technically they haven't started shooting yet, so the spoilers were sparse, but we did unearth some hints about the ongoing Priya/Leonard/Penny love triangle from Johnny Galecki, and asked the stars to weigh in on how Penny and Raj's hook-up might affect the dynamic of the group.

Simon Helberg also shared his predictions for Howard and Bernadette's future following their engagement, while Jim Parsons gave us a very Sheldon-esque opinion on whose side his character might take once Leonard finds out about Raj's betrayal. Dun, dun, dun!

'Big Bang Theory' Barenaked Ladies Music Video for '5 Nights a Week' (VIDEO)

by Laura Prudom, posted Jul 15th 2011 11:30AM
It's a big week for CBS' hit comedy 'The Big Bang Theory.'

Not only did the series score five Emmy nods, including Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy for both Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki, it's also the star of a very special music video collaboration with the Barenaked Ladies ... who just so happen to sing the show's infectiously catchy theme song ... which just so happens to be the song featured in the video! Ain't that a coincidence?

Not so much, actually, since the 'Bang'-tastic video will be used to promote the off-network launch of the ratings heavy-hitter in syndication this fall, where it will air five nights a week on TBS, the Fox Television Stations and broadcast stations across the country from Sept. 18.

Hit the jump to catch a first look at the music video, featuring the main cast of 'The Big Bang Theory' behind the scenes and on set during an episode taping.

Johnny Galecki and Sara Gilbert Remember Their 'Roseanne' Days on 'The Talk' (VIDEO)

Sara Gilbert and Johnny Galecki on 'The Talk'Former 'Roseanne' co-stars Sara Gilbert and Johnny Galecki were reunited today on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS), and Gilbert's co-hosts pumped him for gossip. Specifically, Sharon Osbourne wanted to know if Galecki ever had a crush on Gilbert and if he ever dated her.

Galecki admitted to having a crush, but turned to Gilbert to see whether she would technically call what they did "dating." "Sara's a very good kisser," he said. "I was more nervous about our kiss on 'Big Bang Theory' than I was on 'Roseanne' or even, previous to that, in personal life because you're the only person who can gauge if I'm improved as a kisser over the last 20 years."

Johnny Galecki: Kaley Cuoco 'A Wonderful Muse' for Make-Out Scenes (VIDEO)

Johnny Galecki talks about making out with 'Big Bang' co-star Kaley Cuoco on 'Rachael Ray'When 'Big Bang Theory' star Kaley Cuoco was on 'Rachael Ray' (Weekdays, Syndicated), she talked about how much she loved making out with Johnny Galecki on camera. Ray had Galecki on the show today and played him a clip of the interview as he sat looking somewhat embarrassed, hiding his face in his hands.

Ray then prompted Galecki to say something nice about Cuoco. "How many shades of red are you trying to make me right now?" he said. "She's a wonderful muse when it comes to make-out scenes. She's a beautiful, beautiful girl and a fantastic actress." His kind words weren't just flaterry: Cuoco recently revealed that the two had a secret off-screen relationship for two years.

When Ray pointed out Galecki's smooth answer, he tried to look suave, casually applying chapstick to his lips. Ray then told him that looked sexy, and warned that she might make out with him during the break. So be glad you're watching this clip from the comfort of your own computer and weren't in the studio audience to witness that spectacle.

Craig Ferguson Tries to Pass Sheldon's Friend Test on 'The Late Late Show' (VIDEO)

'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Craig Ferguson often has skits with his guests before he brings them out to chat on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM on CBS), but rarely are they as ambitious as the one that preceded his episode featuring the cast of 'The Big Bang Theory.' Ferguson was on the set of the hit comedy in a scene that felt like it came from an actual episode.

In it, he was looking to join the quartet of misfits as a fifth friend, but before he could do that he'd have to pass Sheldon's (Emmy-winner Jim Parsons) rigorous test. Before they could even get that far, though, Sheldon took issue with the name of Ferguson's show. "What time is it on?" he asked.

When told it was at 12:30AM, Sheldon posed the question, "Given that AM stands for Ante Meridiem, wouldn't it more logically be called 'The Early Early Show with Craig Ferguson'?"

'The Big Bang Theory' Stars Holding out for More Money in Contract Talks

by AOL TV Staff, posted Jul 29th 2010 11:40AM
In the show's final seasons, the cast of 'Friends' made one million dollars per episode. Now, the three stars of 'The Big Bang Theory' are hoping to follow suit, though on a smaller scale, by negotiating their salaries from $60,000 to $250,000 per episode, according to a Deadline Hollywood report. The latter amount is what industry insiders speculate the cast should make given the show's high ratings. Instead, word on the street is that the studio offered stars Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco $100,000 an episode, and the actors have not responded.

Apparently, critically hailed main geek Parsons is attempting to negotiate higher pay than both of his costars. It's a demand not completely out of left field, seeing as Parsons has two Emmy nominations under his belt in addition to near-universal praise for his portrayal of socially awkward scientist Sheldon Cooper.

Soulmates on 'The Big Bang Theory'You would think that online dating -- with its use of computers, the Internet, and mathematical algorithms -- would appeal to a fairly geeky guy like Sheldon (Jim Parsons). But if you thought that, you might be wrong. On 'The Big Bang Theory' (Mon., 9:30PM ET on CBS), Sheldon's friends create an Internet dating profile for him. But conflict -- followed by possible romance -- is the end result.

'Big Bang Theory' Set Visit: Are Leonard and Penny Headed for a Big Break-Up?

by Laura Prudom, posted Mar 24th 2010 3:00PM

From Ross and Rachel to Booth and Brennan, "will they/won't they" couples have become a staple part of our TV diet, with shows often dangling the carrot of love above viewers' heads right up until the very last episode. But CBS' geektastic comedy 'The Big Bang Theory' is way too smart (literally) for that, deciding to forgo the frustration and get right down to the romance after finally hooking up nerdy Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and vivacious Penny (Kaley Cuoco) at the start of season three.

But the course of true love never did run smooth. AOL TV recently stopped by the 'Big Bang Theory' set to get the inside scoop from all five 'Big Bang' cast members, and we think fans will be surprised by what they had to say. Check out our spoilertastic interview after the jump.

Wil Wheaton Will Return to 'Big Bang Theory'

The Big Bang Theory
It looks like producers of television's geekiest show (after 'Face the Nation,' I mean), 'The Big Bang Theory,' were happy with Wil Wheaton's guest appearance a while back because they have invited him to do the show once again. The show got a big ratings boost when our old friend played Sheldon's enemy on the show earlier this season, which was funny because he was playing himself.

He calls himself "evil Wil Wheaton." He got the official word this morning that the episode is a go and he'll tape it on March 2. If this turns into a semi-regular thing, where he returns to the show every once in a great while to torment Sheldon, they should have a surprise other cast member from 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' to come on and challenge Wheaton or get in the middle of things. I can picture Jonathan Frakes or Brent Spiner doing that.
