Remember when Nimoy said he'd retired from acting? He's back!

Leonard Nimoy just can't stay away from acting. Remember when he threw in the towel after playing William Bell on Fringe? Well, that didn't stick. The Star Trek alum will make a rare appearance on an episode of CBS' The Big Bang Theory.

Two years ago, Nimoy claimed he was retiring and done with acting.
 
"I have announced my retirement," he'd said. "I will not be doing any more television or movie acting or directing." It sounded like he really meant it, but the folks behind The Big Bang Theory have found a loophole.
 
It's no secret that one of  the show's main characters, Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons), has a serious obsession with Nimoy and Star Trek. Therefore, it's fitting that the actor will appear in an upcoming dream sequence.
 
According to TV Line, for Nimoy's guest spot he'll be heard, but not seen. He'll speak to Sheldon not as himself, but as Spock. Talk about a dream come true.
 
During its run, The Big Bang Theory has managed to lure multiple Star Trek stars, including George Takei, Brent Spiner and Wil Wheaton.
 
Nimoy's episode is scheduled to air March 29.
