Sara Gilbert Big Bang Theory

The Big Bang Theory is about to get a little more interesting–as in a little bit more Roseanne–with Sara Gilbert joining the cast. On the show she’ll reprise the role she played on three previous episodes and will be Leslie Winkle, the love interest to Johnny Galecki. The relationship will mirror the one that Galecki and Gilbert had on the show Roseanne: on-and-off lovers. Hopefully there will be a lot of bickering and that special brand of Darlene cynicism, which was half the fun of the Roseanne show.

What has Gilbert been up to since her time as Darlene Connor on Roseanne? In addition to playing Leslie Winkle, she’s also guest starred on ER, Law 7 Order, Private Practice and Will & Grace, and 24.
