Bob Newhart To Guest In “The Big Bang Theory’s” Last Season -
Professor Proton is going to haunt Sheldon one more time.
Bob Newhart is one of the favorite guest stars of the cast of “TBBT” and he will be part of the last season of the show. A rep for the hit series has confirmed that, but the details, like all plot for the finale “bang” is being kept under wraps.
This will be Newhart’s sixth appearance on the show. He garnered three Emmy nods for his work with Jim Parsons and company and, in 2013 won for Outstanding Guest Actor. It’s his only win even though he had sixth other nominations.
What will Professor Proton help Sheldon with in his next visit? Considering the show is promising a huge sendoff for the series…. it’ll be both touching and funny no doubt.
The final season of “The Big Bang Theory” kicks off on September 24.

THE PREDATOR: Sterling K. Brown Blasted for Tweets About Olivia Munn
Sterling K. Brown is getting blasted after he addressed his Predator co-star Olivia Munn — who had said she felt shunned by her castmates for having a scene with a registered sex offender cut from the movie.
Yesterday (Sunday) Brown tweeted, “I’m sorry you’re feeling so isolated, my dear.” But the internet hate came when he appeared neutral about Steven Wilder Striegel, a sex offender who appeared in the action flick. Brown wrote, “What is and isn’t forgivable? That’s gonna [sic] very from individual to individual.”
One irate fan said: “Sexual abuse of a minor is up for debate regarding forgiveness?”
Another said, "Sir. I love you. But delete this. If this man had tried to lure one of your sons, you wouldn’t be asking this question. Olivia did the right thing and all of you male co-stars need to stand up for her RIGHT NOW."
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Munn said many of her co-stars have canceled scheduled interviews with her to promote the movie and that another even walked off a joint interview when the issue came up. She said, "I kind of feel like I’m the one going to jail."

She's been a friend; she's somebody I admire and respect greatly, and it's very embarrassing and upsetting to have to talk about her husband, but we do. We feel it's right."
