Our Little Tonys Correspondent Iain Armitage Is Going To Be The Young Sheldon Cooper In The Big Bang Theory Spinoff!
Let's face it, prequels always suck. So we weren't too interested in the Big Bang Theory spinoff Sheldon.
That is, until we learned CBS's frontrunner to play the young Sheldon Cooper was none other than our favorite little Tony Awards red carpet correspondent, Iain Armitage!
We're also seeing that the network is looking at Zoe Perry to play Sheldon's mom! Since Zoe is the daughter of Laurie Metcalf, who plays Mary Cooper on the hit sitcom, it seems like a perfect fit to us!
But we're just so happy for Iain!
Of course, no matter how big he gets, he'll always be our man at the Tonys! See some of his classic red carpet celebrity interviews (below)!
