It’s season finale time and your favorite shows are bringing out the big guns to ensure maximum viewership. The Big Bang Theory is already promising an epic season 11 finale with Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler set to exchange ‘I Do’s’, and it looks like the guest list is going to be star studded with none other than Mark Hamill in attendance for the big day.
The wedding of Jim Parson’s Sheldon Cooper and Mayim Bialik’s Amy Farrah Fowler has been one of the major storylines on this season of The Big Bang Theory, so there’s no surprise that the guest list for the wedding will be just as exciting as the wedding itself, especially with some recently confirmed notable guest stars. The show has a history of featuring some pretty amazingly talented and nerdy guest stars including George Takei, Leonard Nimoy, Stephen Hawking, LeVar Burton and Stan Lee to name just a few, so it’s not shocking that they’d pull out the big guns for Sheldon and Amy’s wedding.

TV Line is reporting that CBS has confirmed the guest list for Sheldon and Amy’s big day, and in addition to Hamill, who will make an appearance in the wedding themed season finale, there are a few other notables making an appearance. In addition to Laurie Metcalf and Courtney Henggeler who will return to their roles as Sheldon’s mother Mary and twin sister Courtney respectively, Brian Posehn, John Ross Bowie, and Wil Wheaton have all been announced as wedding guests.
This will mark Hamill’s first appearance on the hit CBS show, but he won’t be the first newcomer to make a guest appearance in the season finale. Both Kathy Bates and Teller, of comedy duo Penn & Teller are both confirmed as guests of Sheldon and Amy’s wedding and will make their first appearances on the show. Lauren Lapkus will be introduced as Denise, an employee at the comic book store in the April 19th episode, and will also be at the wedding. There’s currently been no reports as to whom the actors will be playing, but it’s likely that at least Hamill will be portraying himself, if past guest appearances and Sheldon’s love of Star Wars are any indication. And as we previously told you Wheaton’s Stand By Me co-star Jerry O’Connell has been cast to play Sheldon’s older brother, Georgie, who will make his first appearance in the season finale.
Looks like most of Sheldon’s family will be in attendance for his wedding, but we haven’t heard much of whether Amy’s family will be there. We have seen her mother (played by Annie O’Donnell) briefly a few seasons back, but we’ve yet to meet her father, so it will be interesting to see if any of these guest stars will be a part of the Fowler family. It does look like this will be a wedding fans of the show and even the occasional viewer won’t want to miss.
The season 11 finale of The Big Bang Theory airs on May 10th on CBS.
