Kaley Cuoco is taking some side jobs during her off hours from The Big Bang Theory. This week Cuoco was spotted with fellow actor William Shatner in Los Angeles, reprising their roles from the Priceline.com advertisements. Both personalities took to social media to mark the event, with Shatner tweeting out a picture and Cuoco giving a shout out on Instagram.
Kaley also Instagrammed the photo with the caption, “Me and my negotiating partner in crime #shatner #pricelinenegotiators.” She used the same tagline on another Instagram shot, of herself and her glam squad, with the caption “still.shooting.”
Going by the white suit jacket Cuoco is wearing in the photo with Shatner, it very well might have been on this shooting day that Cuoco took her “before and after” snap to show how she looks different with makeup. That photo was previously reported on by the Inquisitr.
Cuoco was first seen in the Priceline ads in January 2013. She’d been brought in to the campaign to play Shatner’s negotiating daughter. As a quote from Kaley at the time revealed, it was a good match because of the “geekfest” connection between The Big Bang Theory and Star Trek. The pair also worked well together, with Cuoco saying they had “way too much fun” and Shatner calling Cuoco “quite a talent.”
Of course, Kaley signed on to be the face of Priceline before she and her Big Bang Theory co-stars had signed lucrative contracts which reportedly will net Cuoco $1 million per episode. The show has been green-lit for production through to the end of Season 10. The Big Bang Theory is currently in its eighth year.
Kaley is set to star in The Wedding Ringer in 2015 and Shatner may have a spot in the upcoming Star Trek 3 movie, according to The Daily Mail. There is no word as to how the Star Trek 3 director change may affect Shatner’s potential role.
In the meantime, fans of The Big Bang Theory are gearing up for the show’s Christmas episode, titled “The Clean Room Infiltration,” which Unreality TVreveals will be on this Thursday. While there’s no word as to what Bernadette or Cuoco’s character, Penny, will be up to, the synopsis indicates Howard, Leonard and Raj will have a mishap in the lab and Sheldon and Amy will quarrel over the Christmas celebration.
