Big Bang Theory: Keith Carradine as Penny’s Dad

So Penny (Kaley Cuoco) won’t be appearing in any Big Bang Theory episodes just yet after that nasty spill thanks to a horse-back riding accident (where she broke her leg) but that doesn’t mean the show’s going to give her character a break as well.

In fact, the show will finally reveal something more about Penny’s family background – Penny’s dad will make an appearance. And Keith Carradine has been cast to play the role.

For those of you who don’t know Carradine, he’s the guy who plays Frank Lundy in Dexter and is half-brother to Kwai Chang Caine (David Carradine).

Anyway, it’s going to be quite interesting since we know how Penny’s got some major daddy issues. And maybe Penny’s surname will finally be revealed.
