Subscribe To Kaley Cuoco Said Her Harley Quinn Would Be A 'Wet Dream' To Big Bang Theory Characters Updates

When it comes to job changes in Hollywood, Kaley Cuoco may have taken the biggest creative leap of all time in going directly from starring on CBS' family-friendly sitcom The Big Bang Theory to heading up DC Universe's upcoming Harley Quinn animated series. As the foul-mouthed DC villain, Cuoco is on the polar opposite of the character spectrum from Big Bang's Penny, but the actress doesn't think that would stop Leonard, Sheldon and the other characters from fawning over her.

While speaking to journalists at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, Kaley Cuoco (whose Yes, Norman production company partnered with WB on this) shared just how much she thinks the Big Bang gang would appreciate DC Universe's Harley Quinn.

I think they would think it's the hottest thing in the world. I think this is in their wet dreams, for sure.

You know that feeling you get when you walk into a room you haven't been in for a long time, possibly for creeped-out reasons, and your whole body experiences intense, vertigo-lite waves of unfamiliarity and despair? Maybe? That's akin to how I felt just now picturing Howard, Raj, Leonard and Sheldon all waking up at the same time from having Harley Quinn-infused wet dreams. (Obviously with all four characters' framed faces in a single camera shot.)

Unfortunately, give or take, none of those characters will likely be having any wet dreams about Daddy's Little Monster anytime soon, considering The Big Bang Theory is over and done with at CBS. Technically, Young Sheldon's lead character will be in that ball park right around the time that Harley Quinn is first introduced on Batman: The Animated Series in 1992, but ew.

This should take care of any untoward reactions:

Kaley Cuoco's point, of course, is that The Big Bang Theory characters have long embraced the world of comic book pop culture (as helped along by having DC-friendly Warner Bros. as its TV studio). While Sheldon often opted for The Flash or Green Lantern as his T-shirt heroes of choice, the show occasionally took things up a notch over the years by going full cosplay.

Who can forget the time Kaley Cuoco tapped into her more heroic side for that Wonder Woman costume a few years back? One has to assume that after Harley Quinn hits DC Universe to deliver the most four-letter words that streaming money can buy, some fans will figure out ways to make Cuoco's Wonder Woman vs. Cuoco's Harley Quinn happen.

The actress explained to TCA press (via USA Today) how her work on The Big Bang Theory allowed for a sensible transition for her to dive into the world of comic book mayhem.

We've created our own audience for this for the last 12 years. So, they’ve already been supportive of these sorts of characters, and it's believable I would be part of it, so the stage has been set.

For any fans who happened to miss the first Harley Quinn trailer that was released at San Diego Comic-Con, definitely check it out below, but be warned that it's pretty NSFW. (But it's set to a remake of the Mary Tyler Moore Show theme song, so it all balances out.)

What do you guys think the Big Bang Theory characters would do if Harley Quinn existed in their lives? Or if the actual character herself did? Or if Penny was actually the middle name of Kaley Cuoco's character, whose long-hidden maiden name is actually Quinzel, with her first name being...nah, that's just being silly.

Or is it...?

Beyond the talents of Kaley Cuoco, Harley Quinn boasts a star-studded cast that includes Alan Tudyk as The Joker, Lake Bell as Poison Ivy, Jim Rash as The Riddler, Chris Meloni as Commissioner Gordon, and Diedrich Bader as Batman. That's just to name a few, since the cast also includes Ron Funches, James Adomian, Tony Hale, JB Smoove, Jason Alexander, Wanda Sykes, Giancarlo Esposito, Tisha Campbell Martin, Natalie Morales and more.

DC Universe still hasn't given a specific release date for Harley Quinn yet, but fans can expect to see the mature-as-shit animated series hitting the streaming cycle at some point this fall, along with a slew of other high-profile shows. (Yes, including Young Sheldon.) As well, the colorful character will also be heading back to the big screen, with Margot Robbie reprising the role, for the highly anticipated Birds of Prey and possibly Suicide Squad 2.
