Summer Glau dropping by Big Bang Theory

Aside from the latest Battlestar Galactica news or bargains on life-size replica USCM Aliens armor, few things set geeks' hearts aflutter like a nice helping of Summer Glau. Thankfully Summer, current star of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, is making a guest appearance on one the nerdiest shows on television.

The actress will play herself in an upcoming episode of The Big Bang Theory, says EW.com. According to the site, Big Bang stars Sheldon, Leonard, Howard, and Raj will be taking a train ride to San Francisco (yippee!) but freak out when they discover Summer--their favorite actress--is on the same train. The episode is scheduled to air March 9.

The beautiful Glau is probably best known to the sci-fi world as River Tam in Joss Whedon's Firefly, and, as previously stated, stars in Fox's Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles as Cameron, the hottest Terminator model yet.

This seems like a great move on everybody's part, and should lead to a hilarious episode.

Speaking of hilarious, here's a video of some dork interviewing Summer at last year's WonderCon.

Look at it this way. If TSCC ends, she might get a role on Dollhouse. Joss Whedon is pretty close to all the cast members who have been on his tv shows and he takes good care of them when the need arises.

Besides, the dork in me would enjoy seeing Summer Glau, Eliza Dushku and the beautiful Amy Acker all in one spot. Now all we need is a guest role for Alyson Hannigan and Michelle Trachtenberg and this dork will be pleased.

Don't take David Boreanaz away from Bones. He's doing good there.

No no dont play yourself!!



Play a geeky something or other - T:tSCC isnt gonna last long Summer and moving over the the BBT might be in your sights in the (VERY near) future and you can't do that if youve already appeared in the show as youself!! I think Summer will be super-funny, T-funny to be exact so why not create a character for her.... bring in Lena to play herself so Brian or Whoever, I dont care just not Summer
