Big Bang Theory’s Wil Wheaton ‘didn’t want to play himself’ in sitcom: ‘Was like cheating'

“And it is it’s a privilege and a pleasure and something that I am intensely grateful for,” Wil added.

The Big Bang star went on to land a role in upcoming horror thriller Rent-A-Pal as the slightly psychotic and manipulative Andy.

The film follows lonely David (Brian Landis Folkins) as he sees Andy as a friend all through a TV screen – with haunting consequences.

Discussing his new villainous turn, Wil said: “Part of the reason that we take these roles is because they are so different from who we are as people. 

“And you know, playing villains is fun. It is. It’s challenging, and it’s rewarding to embrace and justify and think about points of view that I find abhorrent. It’s a challenge and, in a lot of ways, it’s a privilege.”

The Big Bang Theory is available to stream on Netflix UK now.

Rent-A-PAL will be available on Digital Download from November 16 and can be pre-ordered here
