If you’re a fan of Sons of Anarchy, you probably recognize Christopher Douglas Reed as Filthy Phil, but how many of you remember him getting kicked in the nuts by Penny on the Big Bang Theory as Todd Zarnecki?

Simon Helberg is currently known as Howard Wolowitz on The Big Bang Theory, but did you know he appeared as another nerd in the pilot episode of Undeclared, playing the friend of Jay Baruchel’s character, Steven?

Thanks for the submission, socerlord14!

Simon Helberg is Howard Wolowitz on The Big Bang Theory but back in the 90s he appeared on Sabrina, the Teenage Witch as the owner of a website that let users change the past. So, definitely not typecast then.

Thanks, tomasingo!

You guys are on fire with the ISAFF twofers! Here’s Simon Helberg, known for playing Howard Wolowitz in The Big Bang Theory, in an episode of Joey playing a nerdy rocket scientist. But wait, there’s more! It’s also Glee's Jayma Mays playing his girlfriend. I think Mr. Schuester may have something to say about this one…

Awesome find, katietheginger!

On The Big Bang Theory, Simon Helberg plays nerdy genius Howard Wolowitz, but back in 2003 he appeared as a frat boy in Old School.

Before starring as Leonard Hofstader on CBS’s The Big Bang Theory, Johnny Galecki played the annoying Trouty on My Boys. Maybe it’s just our inclination to find geeks attractive, but he is one person who definitely looks better as a nerd.

Before having to learn to embrace science and nerdery as Penny on The Big Bang Theory, Kaley Cuoco spent the final season of Charmed playing with magic instead, in the role of Billie Jenkins.

Steven Yeun can currently be seen as Glenn on AMC’S The Walking Dead, where he lives in close quarters with the few remaining survivors of a zombie apocalypse. To his character on The Big Bang Theory (the guy who failed Sheldon’s roommate test) a zombie apocalypse probably sounds pretty appealing compared to living with Sheldon Cooper.

We found this on reddit, but thanks to cyrilleantonio who submitted it as well!

Melissa Rauch is most commonly known for her role as Bernadette in The Big Bang Theory, but she also appeared in season three of True Blood as Summer, the good-girl human girlfriend to Hoyt, acting as a foil to vampire Jessica.

Thanks ssuperpoweredd for the great find!

Before staring as Leonard on Big Bang Theory, Johnny Galecki was learning the finer points of exterior illumination from Chevy Chase as Rusty in Christmas Vacation. We never did find out if he fed the hog.

Also pictured is Juliette Lewis, who would later have the honor of sucking on Robert De Niro’s fingers in Cape Fear.

A Cinderella Story must have been on TV or something because a lot of you have spotted this one recently! Simon Helberg can currently be seen as Howard Wolowitz in The Big Bang Theory but back in 2004 he was seen in a “Darth Vader was Framed” t-shirt alongside Hilary Duff in A Cinderella Story.

Great find from je-mappellebronteshowerfreshbubblesmg1707, and hermioleen!

Before Mayim Bialik was Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler on The Big Bang Theory (although she’s most famously known for her role on Blossom), she played an 11-year-old version of Bette Midler’s character in Beaches back in 1988.

Great submission, look-past-the-imperfections!
