“Big Bang” Has Big Changes In Store

Money seems to be a running theme when it comes to “The Big Bang Theory.” After news that contracts for the original cast had yet to be signed with only two weeks to go before filming, it seems art has now mirrored life. While Kaley Cuoco is one of the stars in line for a major pay raise when Season 8 returns this Fall, it looks like her character will be cashing in a bigger check as well. Chuck Lorre told reporters at this year’s TCAs that big changes are planned for Penny’s storyline when the hit series finally does air this September. “Penny has an interesting arc this year where she puts acting down,” Lorre said. Apparently, Penny pulls the plug on her failed career in front of the camera in order to become a pharmaceutical rep which will bring in plenty more dough for the character and possibly cause some problems with fiance Leonard. “She’s going to start making some money, which will unbalance their relationship as the power shifts,” Lorre said. “She’s going to find some confidence and self-esteem, which acting does not provide in great heaping doses.”
