3. Zoe Perry and Laurie Metcalf

Fans of The Big Bang Theory were ecstatic to hear there would be a spin off of the show coming to television called Young Sheldon, but it was clear producers would have their hands full when it came to casting in order to make sure it resembled what had already been portrayed on the long-running sitcom. Luckily, Laurie Metcalf, who plays the role of Mary Cooper on The Big Bang Theory, has a daughter in the business! It has been announced that Zoe Perry will play Sheldon’s mother, Mary Cooper, in the upcoming sitcom, Young Sheldon.
