The Thursday, February 6, episode of the Daytime Emmy-winning CBS talk show ‘The Talk’ saw a rather adorable guest arrive on the sets. Co-hosts — Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood, rapper Eve, Carrie Ann Inaba and Marie Osmond — met with 11-year-old Iain Armitage, the star of the Chuck Lorre CBS comedy and ‘The Big Bang Theory’ prequel, ‘Young Sheldon’.
Armitage spoke about his recent appearance at the SAG Awards, where he was seen flashing big smiles alongside his ‘Big Little Lies’ co-stars Reese Witherspoon, Meryl Streep, Laura Dern, and Nicole Kidman. The HBO show, where he plays the role of Ziggy, was nominated for “Best Ensemble in a Drama Series” at the awards but lost out to ‘The Crown’.
He said, “It was awesome!” When asked how he got to click selfies with huge stars like Tom Hanks and Jennifer Aniston, he said with a laugh, “I would just kinda go up and say, ‘Can I please, please take a picture with you?’ and it worked pretty well.”
He further added, “Yeah, it was amazing meeting such wonderful people, who are so good at what they do,” before dropping a cheeky compliment, “Like you guys!”
A round of “awws-s” later, Armitage spoke about being a voice-actor in the upcoming Warner Bros. animated movie ‘Scoob!’, part of the classic ‘Scooby-Doo’ franchise. In the movie about how Scooby met Shaggy, Fred, Daphne, and Velma and formed “Mystery Inc.”, Armitage plays the role of young Shaggy; older Shaggy is voiced by Frank Welker.
He said, “It was amazing. Like I have so much fun on ‘Young Sheldon’ and you know we usually have nine-and-a-half-hour days and I love that. But when you come in for something like ‘Scoob!’, you can come in, in pajamas for all they care.”
“You just kind of sit there -- they let me eat a bagel while I was reclining on my chair, going, ‘Oh, I’ve to read these lines? Okay’,” he said while gesturing taking a big bite.
‘The Talk’ airs Monday through Friday at 11 am PT.
