The iCarly Episode You Likely Forgot Starred The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons

Actor Jim Parsons is famous today for being the face of "The Big Bang Theory." For 12 seasons, Parsons starred in the CBS sitcom about nerds as the hyper-intelligent and socially-awkward Sheldon Cooper. Known for his near-robotic personality and iconic catchphrase, "Bazinga," the many condescending comebacks and odd behaviors soon made Sheldon the highlight of the show for many viewers. Eventually, the character became popular enough to garner his own spinoff series in "Young Sheldon." However, Sheldon is far from Parsons' only role.

Over the years, Parsons has been a part of many different projects, some larger than others. However, one role which you likely forgot about is in the popular Nickelodeon sitcom "iCarly." While Parsons' character only appears for a single episode, it is a memorable cameo from the actor. Thankfully, it's also not just a rehash of the same intellectual persona from "The Big Bang Theory." 

Jim Parsons makes crazy predictions in iCarly as Caleb

In the 2011 episode of "iCarly" entitled "iLost My Mind," we are introduced to Caleb, played by Jim Parsons, a strange young man living at Troubled Waters Mental Hospital. Sam (Jennette McCurdy), checks herself into Troubled Waters after believing that her newfound romantic feelings for Freddie (Nathan Kress) are a sign of mental illness. As Sam's friends attempt to get her released, they encounter Caleb, whose weird behavior becomes a running joke throughout the episode.

Caleb does many strange things, from asking Carly (Miranda Cosgrove) and Freddie to kick him anywhere below the waist to laughing at a TV that isn't playing anything. However, his best moments are the mad predictions that he makes under the delusion that he is a time traveler from the year 2077. According to Caleb, Carly will become the vice president of the United States, Virginia and West Virginia will remerge into a single, huge Virginia, and Ryan Seacrest will be abducted by aliens.

Caleb even manages to make it onto the now-defunct "iCarly" blog (via "iCarly" wiki), where Carly shares more of Caleb's predictions. Here, his claims become even wilder, asserting that (among other things) Freddie's mom will expose Seattle to a virus that makes people lose their hair, that T-bo (BooG!e) will invent an app that makes school obsolete, that Spencer Shay (Jerry Trainor) will father the world's first half-alien child, and the most ludicrous prediction of all, that Sam will become vegetarian.
