Kunal Nayyar

After treating his iPhone's Suri like a girlfriend last season, The Big Bang Theory's Raj (Kunal Nayyar) will finally be getting a real love interest. And costar Kaley Cuoco thinks it would make sense if Raj hooked up with Penny's never-been-seen mom.

"I know they're thinking about introducing her, and I've always wanted Lisa Kudrow to play her," Cuoco says. "I imagine her to be a skanky, dirty, trailer trashy cougar, hitting on the boys. I'd love for her to go after Raj."

Showrunner Bill Prady took to Cuoco's pitch right away. "That's not a bad idea," he says. "Raj is a little broken and desperately wants to be in a relationship with anyone who would have him, and we can assume Penny's mom would be an attractive woman. She could be the woman to help him put his broken pieces back together."
