The 2017 Screen Actors Guild Awards were on Sunday and whilst walking it Jim Parsons was asked if there has been an actor chosen to portray the 12 year old version of Sheldon Cooper for the spin-off of The Big Bang Theory.

“We do,” Parsons told ET’s Nancy O’Dell. “They’re supposed to release it but I’m not going to say.”

Parsons said that the young actor that’s been cast to portray young Sheldon is “wonderful. So many kids sent in [tapes] and it was really overwhelming. But this one little guy was really special.”

So there you have it. Young Sheldon has been cast. It’s only a matter of time before the actor gets announced.
