Rick Fox may be involved in three TV series

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: Rick Fox had a blast shooting last night’s (1/20) episode of “Big Bang Theory” on which the preternaturally hot-looking former NBA star cum actor is playing a college professor who is an expert on global warming. He’s also the former boyfriend of Bernadette (Melissa Rauch), which — of course — makes her boyfriend, Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg), massively insecure.

The story is open-ended for a reappearance by the tall, dark and handsome professor, according to Fox. And he’d love to return. “I love the process of starting out with the table read, putting the show on its feet, trying things, making different choices, getting new pages, seeing how the humor gets sharper and tighter throughout the week, and then doing it live in front of a studio audience. There is nothing like that energy.”

According to him, his “Big Bang” character comes with his insecurities — about being able to compete with his peers intellectually. “The only way he can compete with them is through the women in their lives. The one intellect that actually ‘got’ him, Bernadette, was also the one woman who got away.”

With his recurring characters on “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne” and “The Game,” an ongoing “Big Bang” relationship would make Fox a three series man.

“I’m fortunate to be on some really good shows. I’m looking to improve and hopefully, to developing my own comedy,” says the likable performer. “I think of Latifah, LL Cool J and Will Smith — all of whom came from different disciplines and found success on television and films.” And that’s what he’d like to do.
