TV history is littered with countless sitcoms, but once in a blue moon, a massive show will take the world by storm. Friends made it happen in the '90s, and during the 2000s, The Big Bang Theory took over the pop culture sphere.

The series had memorable characters, hilarious unscripted moments, and some great cameos that helped it reach a height that few shows will come close to matching.

Unfortunately, the series did have its problems, including one guest character that fans could not stand.

In a weird twist of fate, however, the actor playing that guest character went on to land a major role in the show's prequel spin-off, Young Sheldon.

Let's take a look at the character, and how actor Lance Barber managed to move on to Young Sheldon.

Jimmy Speckerman Was A Hated Character On The Big Bang Theory

The Big Bang Theory, one of the most popular sitcoms of the 21st century, introduced a wide array of characters who became beloved by fans.

However, not every character received the same warm welcome. Jimmy Speckerman, portrayed by actor Lance Barber, is one such character who sparked mixed reactions among fans

Jimmy Speckerman appears in Season 5, Episode 11, titled "The Speckerman Recurrence." He is portrayed as a former high school bully of Leonard Hofstadter (played by Johnny Galecki). Leonard and the rest of the gang are shocked when they encounter Jimmy, who is now overweight and down on his luck.
