A central character from Big Bang Theory prequel is growing up and moving to the flagship this season.

The Big Bang Theory has enlisted Jerry O’Connell to play Sheldon’s (Jim Parsons) adult older brother Georgie, producers announced Wednesday night at PaleyFest in Los Angeles.

As Big Bang diehards know, Georgie is one of the central players in CBS' Young Sheldon, the prequel comedy from exec producers Chuck Lorre, Steve Molaro and Jim Parsons. O'Connell will take over the role currently played on Young Sheldon by Montana Jordan. The present-day version of Georgie appear on the mothership during a May episode for Sheldon and Amy's (Mayim Bialik) wedding.

Georgie won't be the only family member at Sheldon's wedding. Big Bang producers confirmed Wednesday that Georgie would be joined by his mother, Mary (Emmy winner Laurie Metcalf). “It was important for us," season 11 showrunner Steve Holland told fans packed into the Dolby Theatre at PaleyFest for the dual panel.  And given Metcalf's busy schedule — she has a film and stage play in the works after earning an Oscar nom for Lady Bird and completing production on ABC's Roseanne revival — producers stressed that they made sure to lock the actress in early lest Sheldon's mother not be there to watch him get married.

Outside of a walk down memory lane during the PaleyFest panel, producers also revealed that they plan to toy with a few pre-wedding traditions, including unconventional bachelor and bachelorette parties. “They don’t go the way you think they would go,” Kaley Cuoco (Penny) teased.

O'Connell, for his part, counts Burning Love, Crossing Jordan and CBS' The Defenders among his TV credits. He's repped by ICM Partners.

Big Bang Theory Finale: Sheldon and Amy's Wedding Guest List Revealed (and It Includes Luke Skywalker!) .
If Sheldon and Amy feel a sudden disturbance in the Force on their wedding day, there will be a logical explanation: Luke Skywalker is going to be there. CBS on Monday unveiled the guest list for Big Bang Theory‘s nuptial-themed Season 11 finale on Thursday, May 10 (8/7c), and it includes Star Wars icon Mark Hamill. The network did not, however, reveal any details regarding Hamill’s role, although conventional wisdom suggests he will follow in the footsteps of Big Bang‘s previous Jedi guests James Earl Jones and Carrie Fisher and play himself. Might he be officiating the actual ceremony? That’s our guess.
