Young SheldonHer future father-in-law will be joining with a very special guest spot on Thursday’s Season 5 finale (CBS, 8/7c).
As previously reported, Penn and Teller will star as guest stars on The Big Bang Theory spinoff. However, Teller will not reprise the role of Larry, Amy Farrah Fowler’s father. Instead, he will play one half of the dermatological duo Acne and Pus. Allow us to explain…
In the episode titled “Clogged Pores, a Little Spaniard and the Future,” 12-year-old Sheldon (played by Iain Armitage) struggles to cope with the first signs of puberty. Upon receiving their first pimple, Penn and Teller show up as Acne Vulgaris and his quiet sidekick (as seen in the exclusive TVLine sneak peek above).
“We thought it was an interesting idea to personify acne, so we were thinking about who would be a good fit for Acne Vulgaris,” series co-creator Steve Molaro told TVLine. “When we landed on Penn, he seemed so perfect, and it’s hard not to think of Teller when you think of Penn. When Penn agreed to do it, we went back to saying, ‘How would you guys feel about doing it together, as Pimples and Pus?’ They loved it, and it was just a pleasure to work with from start to finish. “
And if Teller has any hesitation about taking on a new role in Big Bang universe, he certainly didn’t say that to Molaro. “He knows what it is, and I think he knows this has been set in the past,” EP said with a laugh. “It is a [different set of] character here, and you i know that’s Penn and Teller. ”
As the boy genius looks down at the barrel of his teenage wine, the rest of the Cooper family is facing a myriad of crises. Mary and George Sr. is looking for a new job, while Meemaw takes his teenage father-to-be Georgie on a cross-border business trip.
“We were intrigued by the idea that something as small and simple as a pimple could cause him psychological torment,” says Molaro. “It was exciting to witness the onset of puberty and touch on Sheldon’s feelings about all the issues adults are having around him. Now that he has become an adult, is this what life is available for? ”
