In The Big Bang Theory episode “The Monetary Insufficiency,” Sheldon (Jim Parsons) tells Amy (Mayim Bialik) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco) that he plans to ask the university for “some funding” for his research. They’re shocked when he tells them he’s asking for $500 million. University President Siebert is too. Last time we saw Siebert was in the 2012 episode “The Rothman Disintegration,” where Sheldon fought Kripke (John Ross Bowie) for a coveted office on campus. (See above photo.)
University President Siebert is portrayed by Joshua Malina. Malina is known for his roles on Scandal (U.S. Attorney General David Rosen, see photo below), Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later (Deepthroat), In Plain Sight (Peter Alpert), The West Wing (Will Bailey), and Sports Night (Jeremy Goodwin), among others. He was also in the captivating A Few Good Men (see link above). The Big Bang Theory airs Thursdays at 8pm on CBS, right before its spin-off Young Sheldon.
