After many seasons of being alone and hopeless in the world of love, Howard Wolowitz on “The Big Bang Theory” finally managed to find someone in Bernadette; now, his faceless mother could be getting the very same thing.
According to a report from TVLine, the show is looking to cast a brand-new love interest for the character in Dr. Schneider, a dentist that is a little bit haphazard and all over the place. Considering that he may not be the greatest catch of all time, he may not necessarily be someone that Howard is willing to accept in his life at first. After all, the guy is extremely protective of his mother, and attached to her fare more than someone of his age really should be.
The one question that this casting news begs us to ask is rather simple: does this news somehow mean that we are going to end up finally meeting Howard’s mother in person? Don’t necessarily count on that. Actress Carol Ann Susi (who has voiced Mrs. Wolowitz since the beginning of the show) does not really match the physical description of the character, and clearly she has had opportunities to show her face before now if the show really wanted to, especially when it comes to Howard and Bernadette’s wedding at the end of last season. At this point, never seeing Howard’s mother is akin to never seeing Wilson’s face on “Home Improvement” or Mr. Big’s real name on “Sex and the City” in that it is one of those little sitcom quirks that is just entertaining to guess about it. When Mr. Big’s name was finally revealed to be John Prescott, it was pretty disappointing. We don’t want to see the same thing happen again here.
