The Big Bang Theory's own Kunal Nayyar stopped by The Talk on Wednesday to chat about his new animated movie, Trolls, based on the popular Danish dolls created by Thomas Dam in 1959.
 
In the film, Kunal voices the troll named Guy Diamond, which the actor describes as "the resident naked troll," adding, "he farts glitter, and he speaks in Auto-Tune. So, yeah, I can add that to my résumé."
 
Meanwhile, Kunal talked a bit about his personal life, noting that next month marks his fifth wedding anniversary with his wife, but that his Big Bang Theory character, Raj, is still happily playing the field.

 


When asked if he hopes Raj finds "the one" this season, Kunal replied, "I enjoy being single, to be honest. You know, it's really fun to sort of live my life vicariously through my character, since I'm married now. [Laughs]"
 
­Kidding aside, Kunal teased an upcoming episode where Raj falls in love with the cleaning lady at the university.
 
"I think that's a really cool dichotomy for someone who grew up in India, with servants, to fall in love," he said, "so it's a really beautiful way the writers have scripted the story. It's nice to explore different sides of this character, romantically."
 
Watch The Talk weekdays at 2 pm ET, 1 pm PT/CT, and The Big Bang Theory on Thursdays at 8/7c on CBS, and stream full episodes of both shows on CBS All Access.
