‘Big Bang Theory’ Star Kunal Nayyar Gets Pretty Judgy (Photo)

Star of hit CBS sitcom is ready to bring down the gavel in behind-the-scenes look

Looks like Kunal Nayyar is ready to bring the hammer — or at least the gavel — down.

“Big Bang Theory” star Nayyar showed fans an entirely different side of himself on Thursday, taking to Instagram and showing off his costume for Thursday night’s Halloween-themed episode of the hit CBS sitcom.

The photo featured Nayyar, who plays Raj Koothrappali on the series, clutching a gavel while wearing white gloves, a pair of glasses and a black judge’s robe with a delightful frilly collar.

As Nayyar explained in the caption to the photo, the get-up was an homage to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“Kunal- doesn’t really love Halloween- it’s the one day he doesn’t have to dress up for a living,” Nayyar explained. “Raj on the other hand… presenting Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg. “

“Big Bang Theory” executive producer Steve Holland explained to Glamour that Nayyar’s Halloween persona was dubbed Kooth Bader Ginsberg, in a play on his character’s last name, which “seemed very in character [for him]” and “made us laugh.”

While the costume matched many details associated with Ginsburg, Holland explained that they took a pass on one aspect: Ginsburg’s trademark hair bun.

“In the end, since he was ‘Kooth’ Bader Ginsburg, we decided that he could go without a bun,” Holland noted.

Did Nayyar pull off the look? You be the judge, and render your verdict in the comments section.
