Arguably, Breaking Bad and The Big Bang Theory are two of the biggest shows of the past decade. With that in mind, it’s not surprising that the cast of Breaking Bad is appearing on other shows.
While Walter (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse (Aaron Paul) are mainly doing films, Hank (Dean Norris) and Marie (Betsy Brandt) are back in comedy. Betsy Brandy is currently on Life in Pieces and Dean Norris is back on The Big Bang Theory.
We first saw Dean Norris arrive when Howard invented something for the military.
Breaking Bad Star Returns To Big Bang Theory
Back in Season 9, Howard and Leonard created a device that the military could use for global tracking. As soon as the device worked, Howard got a mysterious email on his computer.
The Air Force emailed Howard for a casual chat, which made him paranoid that they were watching him. Raj noted that they could be watching him through the camera on his computer, which didn’t help calm him down.
Later in that episode, Howard ended up getting a speeding ticket (and nearly a DUI) because he thought someone was following him.
Sheldon Cooper Breaks Bad On TBBT
In “The Tesla Recoil,” Leonard discovers that Sheldon Cooper is back working for the military. While he’s supposed to keep things “classified” and “top secret,” Sheldon has never been good at keeping a secret.
After Sheldon, Leonard, and Howard failed to finish a project on time for the military, it looked like their funding was over. Then Sheldon discovered a new way to fix the project and they hired him back.
Unfortunately, Sheldon Cooper didn’t see that it was also necessary to bring his friends back to the project. Because he didn’t invite them to help, they didn’t invite Sheldon after they figured out another way to fix the project.
Since Leonard couldn’t do the math, he and Howard decided to bring Barry Kripke in on the project. In the end, Kripke ended up double-crossing everyone, proving that these three were more like Tesla than Edison.
