Adam West, the original Batman from the campy-classic 1960s series, will make an appearance during Big Bang Theory‘s 200th episode.
According to UPI, West, 87, will play himself in the episode alongside fellow guest stars Christine Baranski, John Ross Bowie, Sara Gilbert and Wil Wheaton, who will play himself as well.

The plot of the episode on CBS is being held tightly under wraps.
According to Yahoo News, West and his Bruce Wayne character has been the subject of many discussions on the show. Sheldon (played by Jim Parsons) often mimics the voice and Howard (Simon Helberg) has dressed up as the character. West was mentioned when Penny (Kaley Cuoco) revealed that she has no idea who he is, much to the disappointment of her nerdy friends.
