The Big Bang Theory has only been off the air for four years thus far, but after 12 seasons it’s hard to imagine the cast as anything other than the beloved characters they played for over a decade. While some actors have chosen to take it easy in the years since BBT ended, others have gone full-speed ahead into roles that are wildly different from the characters we know them as.

Across film and television, here are the Big Bang Theory cast’s best post-Big Bang roles.

Johnny Galecki – The Conners

Johnny Galecki hasn’t done much since The Big Bang Theory ended, but having a child a few months before a global pandemic changes the world as we know it is as good an excuse as any. However, you can still find him playing David Healy every once in a while in the Roseanne spinoff The Conners. Aside from playing Leonard in The Big Bang Theory, Galecki is most known for playing David in both the original Roseanne and the series’ revival. Because of Galecki’s desire to step back from acting post-BBT, David has been written as an absentee father on The Conners, having separated from his wife, Darlene, to help the poor. David hasn’t become a total asshole or anything, but it’s certainly an interesting character dynamic to play when Galecki does make an appearance on the show.

Kaley Cuoco – The Flight Attendant

It’s hard to choose just one of Kaley Cuoco’s post-Big Bang Theory roles to highlight. From starring alongside Pete Davidson in the rom-com Meet Cute to voicing Harley Quinn in her own animated series, Cuoco has really done a great job choosing roles that let her explore her acting range. But if I have to choose, and for the sake of this article I do, I’m going to go with The Flight Attendant.
