If you’re thinking “Why is Jesse Eisenberg on a Big Bang Theory panel?”, you’d be right to be curious! However, it becomes clear when you realise Jesse Eisenberg & Kunal Nayyar are both starring in The Spoils at Trafalgar Studios in London.
The panel was split into two sections, The first half being a discussion with Jesse & Nayyar about the play, and the second half being joined by Melissa Rauch for a more Big Band Theory focused chat. This, of course, leads to the obvious question – Will Jesse play a guest spot on Big Bang? Jesse suggests, only if he can play Raj’s biological brother, and no one on the show comments on it. Melissa suggests he could play her baby!
It’s a great and funny panel, as you’d expect given the people involved!
