Try to keep your cool, nerds. Bill Gates is set to cameo on an upcoming episode of “The Big Bang Theory” as — wait for it — Bill Gates.

The founder of Microsoft, king of the internet and hero to all geeks everywhere, will appear in a March episode of the CBS sitcom, the network announced Tuesday. Gates will pop in as a guest of Penny’s (Kaley Cuoco) at work, and the boys will do anything it takes to get near their leader.

Other A-listers who have played themselves on the hit CBS series include Carrie Fisher, Bill Nye, Stephen Hawking, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Buzz Aldrin, LeVar Burton, Steve Wozniak, and Stan Lee. (Note the plethora of other nerds on that list).

“The Big Bang Theory” will return with new episodes on March 1 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
