Leonard Hofstadter:
Leonard is an experimental physicist from Caltech who rooms with Sheldon in their rundown apartment building in apartment 4A, in which the elevator always seems to be out of order. He keeps a whiteboard in their living room on which he works on theoretical particle physics. While Sheldon's genius seems to be focused primarily in math and science, Leonard is indicated to be proficient in literature and history as well as the sciences; he is able to solve a woman's crossword puzzle in seconds, the answers being mostly literature based, e.g. Vladimir Nabokov. It is also suggested that Leonard's IQ is not as high as Sheldon's; Sheldon scoffs at Leonard's whiteboard theories as common enough to be "scribbled on the wall of every men's room at MIT." Most of the equations on Leonard and Sheldon's boards feature complex higher mathematics, such as
virtual particles in QM, or series of Reimann zeta functions. Leonard feels at home with his genius colleagues, but wants more socially. He is reluctant to let Penny know about his recreational activities (such as Klingon Boggle) and is probably reluctant to even partake in such activities in the first place, because although he secretly likes them, he doesn't like to be seen as a nerd. He also dislikes his friends' habit of rattling off different trivial facts, something to which all the other geniuses enjoy both listening and participating. Sweet but sarcastic, Leonard also seems to be the most well-adjusted one of the group; he is quick to try new things apart from his nerd friends and, between Sheldon and him, is the only one who feels that he "should do something" when Penny begins to recount her recent breakup. Despite his attempts to reject his nerd status, he certainly is
one, with his Star Wars hygiene products and his ability to blurt out the wrong things in front of women, such as when he's trying to invite Penny to lunch and mentions that curry is a natural laxative. He falls head over heels for Penny within seconds of spotting her and while at first it seems like lust rather than love, by the end of the pilot episode he has already announced to Sheldon, "our babies will be smart and beautiful." Sheldon, however, is quick to add, "not to mention imaginary."


*Leonard wants to win a Nobel Prize someday (though Sheldon doubts he'll ever achieve it).
*Leonard, as a physicist, is skeptical of string theory.
*Leonard and Sheldon have a combined IQ of 360 -- Leonard has an IQ of 173.
*Leonard received his PhD at the age of twenty four years old.
*Leonard has a grandmother with Alzheimer's that came to Thanksgiving and stripped naked.
*Leonard wears boxer shorts.
*Leonard usually wears neutral colored sweat jackets.
*Leonard wears black framed glasses... even if in costume.
*Leonard cannot process corn and is lactose intolerant.
*Leonard has Darth Vader 'No More Tears' shampoo and Luke Skywalker Hair conditioner.
*Leonard is a huge Superman fan, so much so that he owns all of the Superman films and more than 2600 Superman comics.
*Leonard once dated a girl (presumably Korean) named Joyce Kim. He claims to have broken up with her, but Sheldon reveals
that the end of their relationship was because she actually defected to North Korea.
*Leonard is commonly seen wearing "Geek Wear" (clothes that are scientifically inspired) such as, in episode 1x03 where he
can be seen wearing a shirt with a "Paradox" molecule.
*Leonard and Sheldon own Dell XPS computers.
*Leonard can play the cello.
*Leonard's middle name is Leakey (named for the famous anthropologist that his father worked with, "it had nothing to do
with your bedwetting."
*Leonard and all his friends play Halo 3 every Wednesday.
*Leonard and Sheldon are named after actor and producer Sheldon Leonard.[1]
*Leonard has an iPhone.
*Leonard's parents are presumably not comfortable with his choice of vocation.
*Leonard is unaccustomed to observing birthdays, by choice of his mother's views on Psychiatry.
*Leonard's parents live in New Jersey
*Leonard drives a silver car with a luggage rack on top.

Johnny Galecki
Johnny Galecki is best known to television audiences for his role as David in the long-running comedy series "Roseanne," for which he won a Young Artist Award.

His television series credits also include a recurring role in "My Boys" and guest appearances in "Hope and Faith", "My Name is Earl" and "Entourage".

Galecki's feature film credits include "Crystal," "Bookies," "Vanilla Sky," "Bounce," "Playing Mona Lisa," "The Opposite of Sex," "I Know What You Did Last Summer," "Suicide Kings" and "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation."
Since TBBT began, he's been in "Time Out" (2011), "CBGB" (2013), "The Master Cleanse" (2016 - also produced by him), and "Rings" (2017).

He recently closed the Tony Award-nominated Broadway play "The Little Dog Laughed," for which he received a 2007 Theatre World Award for outstanding Broadway debut. His other theater credits include "The Drawer Boy" and "Pot Mom," at Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre, "The Member of the Wedding," for which he was nominated for a Joseph Jefferson Award and "Galileo."

Galecki was born in Belgium where his father was stationed while serving in the US Air Force. He was raised in Chicago, Illinois, and currently lives in Los Angeles. His birth date is April 30.

"He's just a good guy, not a Hollywood guy, not a smarty rat brat packer. And he's polite. Huh? A polite person who's on TV? Yup. He's very friendly, too."
Roseanne producer, Eric Gilliland

"Johnny Galecki of The Big Bang Theory rocks. Super nice guy and great taste in movies. " John Geoff after the Screams awards(Green Lantern)

Met and interviewed Johnny this week as a co-host on the View. I like this man. Very great guy
Bryant Renfroe, may2010

"We didn't have a TV because we didn't have a whole lot of money," added Galecki, who came back to Chicago in 1998 to do the play "Pot Mom" with his "Roseanne" castmate Laurie Metcalfe. "My parents would have their friends over -- their friends who thought, 'How can you live without a TV?' By the time they left, they understood why, because I had done the second act of 'West Side Story' and the first act of 'Jesus Christ Superstar,' playing all the parts. In many ways, that's what I'm still doing. I'm just getting paid better." Johnny, jan.2010
