The Big Bang Theory ended its run a couple of years ago, but the show continues to entertain the fans thanks to reruns and its OTT streaming. While Sheldon Cooper of course has been the focal point of most of the series' gags, let's spare a thought for his frustrated roommate and patient BFF, Leonard Hofstadter. Played amicably by Johnny Galecki, Leonard is the kind of straight guy in his group of weird geeks, often being the voice of reason, that is, till he stops listening to himself.

Before earning his breakout success through TBBT, Galecki had gained some popularity through his appearances in the TV series Roseanne, where he played the character of David Healy. He had also appeared in movies like National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, Suicide Kings, I Know What You Did Last Summer, In Time, and Rings. He also appeared in the Roseanne spin-off series The Conners.
