Sheldon might finally be getting a romantic life.
Mayim Bialik has been tapped for a recurring role on the hit CBS comedy series "The Big Bang Theory." She'll play a potential girlfriend for Sheldon (Jim Parsons) -- a female version of him, a nerdy brain who he meets on eHarmony.
Bialik will appear in the season finale May 24.
With his quirks and complete lack of social skills, Sheldon has been far unluckier in love than his fellow scientist roommate Leonard (Johnny Galecki), who has had a string of girlfriends on the show, notably Penny (Kaley Cuoco) and Leslie (Sara Gilbert).
Bialik also has recurring roles on Fox's "'Til Death" and ABC Family's "Secret Life of the American Teenager."
