The 43-year-old actor will guest star as himself on the CBS sitcom's February 19 episode, Entertainment Weekly exclusively reports. The network confirmed the news by re-tweeting the article Monday on Twitter.

The episode will see Raj (Kunal Nayyar) and Leonard (Johnny Galecki) spot Fillion at a restaurant and debate whether to approach him. Sheldon (Jim Parsons) is a fan of the actor's series Firefly, and frequently references the program on the show.
