Johnny Galecki News

Johnny Galecki was born to his American parents in Belgium when his father was stationed there with the U.S. Air Force.  After growing up in Illinois, he got his first major role as the son, Rusty, in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.  While that role changed actors every movie, Galecki was able to land a part in Rosanne as Darlene's boyfriend (and later husband).

As no stranger to sitcoms or working with Chuck Lorre, he'd one day be cast as the starring role of Leonard in The Big Bang Theory.

TBBT Quotes

Penny: Hey, Sheldon, did you change your Wi-Fi password again?
Sheldon: Yes, it's "Penny, get your own Wi-Fi." No spaces.

Sheldon: It's a bust of Sir Isaac Newton.
Penny: Oh sure, sure. Very Christmasy.
Sheldon: Well, excuse me, it's much more Christmasy than anything you put on the tree.
Leonard: Here we go...
Sheldon: December 25th, 1642. Julian calendar. Sir Issac Newton is born. Jesus, however, was actually born in the summer. His birthday was moved to coincide with the traditional pagan holiday that celebrates the winter solstice with lit fires and slaughtered guts, which frankly sounds like more fun than twelve hours of Church with my mother, followed by fruit cake.
