Kunal Nayyar: I am "humbled" to share the Big Bang stage with Kal Penn
Nayyar and Penn have been mistaken for each other in the past. And with Penn guest-starring on The Big Bang Theory, Nayyar shared a heartfelt message on Intagram with a picture he took with Penn. "When I was just a kid in college grinding away long hours training in the theater program you gave me hope that looking like me, I could make it here," Nayyar wrote. "Last night I was humbled to share the stage with you, and today I am honored to call you a friend. Thank you for being you, so I could be me. #brotherfromanothermother."

Jim Parsons says The Big Bang Theory is ending because "it feels like we chewed all of the meat off this bone"
"There is no negative reason to stop doing Big Bang. There are good reasons,” Parsons says in an Entertainment Weekly cover story on The Big Bang Theory's final season. “We’ve been able to do this for so many years, it doesn’t feel like there is anything left on the table. Not that we couldn’t keep doing it; the writers could still think of wonderful things for us to do. But it feels like we chewed all of the meat off this bone.” The 45-year-old Parsons also pointed out that "I'm firmly in my middle age now" and he'll soon become too old to pull off wearing T-shirts all the time.

Chuck Lorre unveils his 600th vanity card across The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon and Mom
The mega-producer offered a two-parter for Vanity Card #600. Lorre has been writing vanity cards across his six comedies, including Mike & Molly, Dharma & Greg and Two and a Half Men. "As I write this, my six hundredth vanity card, I find myself fantasizing about a time, far in the future, when my cards have inexplicably become the scriptural basis for a new religion," writes Lorre. "Like in the classic sci-fi novel A Canticle For Leibowitz, each card would be studied, pondered and argued over by hermetic monks who fervently believe them to be documents of divine origin. In this imagined future, chaste and smelly men in threadbare woolen robes happily devote their entire lives trying to understand the entirely not esoteric words of me. And this would go on for thousands of years. Generation after generation of completely misguided wisdomseekers would write treatises on pointless essays that I wrote in a hurry (like this one)."

The Big Bang Theory cast members have finally become good at fake-eating
The well-paid stars, says Devon Ivie, "were some of the worst fake-eaters in the history of television. The worst. Pieces of chicken are picked up, looked at, and gently put down. A salad is somehow cut to smithereens with a knife...That is, until this 12th (and final) season debuted. Something happened. It was a marvel. The characters began to — how do I put this? — pick up food with utensils and actually put it into their mouths, swallowing, et al."

Chuck Lorre uses his Big Bang Theory vanity card to call President Trump a "fascist"
Lorre didn't use Trump's name in last week's vanity card. Instead, he addressed God: "I humbly beseech thee to make thy presence known on November 6th," Lorre wrote. "Demonstrate your omnipotence through us as we make ink marks on little circles in curtained booths. Of course if you, in your divine wisdom, believe a fascist, hate-filled, fear-mongering, demagogic, truth-shattering, autocratic golf cheater is what we need right now, then, you know, thy will be done."
