So, the other day I was cruising the Internet Webs and I learned something I didn’t know. Simon Helberg (Howard) played Hilary Duff’s stalker, Terry, in the film A Cinderella Story. Now, I’m a lady that is a sucker for both the Big Bang Theory and sappy teen movies, so I cannot believe I didn’t notice this. Oh, Howard, how you have surprised me. Let’s see what else Simon Helberg has done.
FYI: Regina King also appears in the Big Bang Theory and A Cinderella Story with Helberg. She plays Janine Davis on the Big Bang Theory.
He has appeared in MADtv, Old School, Mama’s Boy, and Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. Simon pretty much grew up in the entertainment industry as his father is an actor and his mother is a casting director. The industry is in his blood, but the comedic chops just may be all his own.
Simon has also done some voice acting. He is Bian Zao on the Kung Fu Panda TV series and Napoleon on the 2014 version of the Tom and Jerry show. So, there you go! A Simon Helberg performance more suitable for your kids!
Other known work that Helberg has done seems to be projects that didn’t quite get off the ground. Some of these examples include, 2001’s Popular, he played Gus Latrine in one episode. In Judd Aptow’s other one season show, Undeclared, Helberg played Jack in one episode. Here’s one you may know, he played Seth in the Friends spin-off, Joey.
So, maybe his TV career before Big Bang Theory wasn’t so great. But, he was a regular on MADtv. Fans of the Big Bang Theory can take comfort in the fact that Simon Helberg is here to stay as Howard Walowitz. I also take comfort in the fact that Helberg played Moist in the cult smash Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.
