Simon Helberg talks ‘The Big Bang Theory’ season 8 and beyond, suggesting lines

While promoting his upcoming Indy film I Am I, Simon Helberg talked about The Big Bang Theory, the three year renewal and working on the set.

“It’s not lost on me, how unusual that is, these days, especially.  Actually, I believe that we were picked up for three seasons, right before this.  As actors, we tend to usually have some issues with self-esteem and some need for validation, and it takes awhile for that fear of not having a job to go away.  I certainly think that it looks like we’ll be around for a little while.”
 
Helberg has played Howard Wolowitz in 160 episodes on Big Bang, so fans want to know if he suggests lines for Howie.

Simon confesses that the future isn’t clear as Big Bang will have three more seasons, not knowing what’s ahead for Wolowitz and company.
 
I Am I is opening in theaters on June 13th.
