The cast of Big Bang Theory is putting their money where their mouth is. 

The LAD Bible – The cast and crew of The Big Bang Theory have set up a trust fund to help create the next generation of real-life Sheldons and Leonards.

The fund, which was kick-started by a donation from the show’s producer Chuck Lorre, aims to help support young people from low-income backgrounds to study science, technology, engineering and maths and already has $4million (about £2.6million) in it.
