We hear a lot about how tough it was for Sheldon growing up in a strict religious family in Texas, now it seems according to Hollywood Reporter we will witness it first hand. CBS has cast Ian Armitage from Big Little Liars to play a very young Sheldon. His mum has been cast too and will be played by Zoe Perry.
Big Bang Theory now costs around $10 million dollars per episode, so it probably won’t be running for much longer. It makes sense for CBS to cut costs and use young up and coming actors. We hear a lot about Sheldons history, so there will be a huge amount of potential material.
The show will be filmed as a single camera comedy is being billed as Malcolm in the Middle but with a young version of Sheldon. We’re interested to see where this might lead but there is no Pilot order as of yet.
