Los Angeles: Veteran actors Kathy Bates and Mark Hamill have been roped in to guest star in the 11th and final season of The Big Bang Theory.

The details on their roles are being kept under wraps, but since the finale will feature Amy and Sheldon's much-awaited wedding, the two actors may star as the family members, EW reported.

Sheldon's family has been introduced in The Big Bang Theory with his mother Mary and sister Missy often making appearances and with the spin-off Young Sheldon the viewers also got an insight into the ace astrophysicist's childhood.
