Only the coolest actors land guest-starring roles as themselves, so former One Life to Live actor Nathan Fillion (ex-Joey Buchanan) must be awesome: he's scheduled to appear on the popular sitcom The Big Bang Theory as, well... his truly.
Entertainment Weekly reports that the Firefly-turned-Castle star will be dropping by the comedy series for an episode in which Raj (Kunal Nayyar) and Leonard (Johnny Galecki) spot him at a restaurant and consider asking for his picture. Because Fillion has reached Geek God status with the aforementioned roles as well as his Buffy the Vampire Slayer gig, it's not so easy for the nerds to hold their cool.
To catch the episode, be sure to tune in to CBS' The Big Bang Theory at 8PM ET/PT on Thursday, February 19.
