The Big Bang Theory actress Kaley Cuoco is going to be getting plenty of exposure outside of the hit CBS sitcom. Cuoco, who hosted last night’s People’s Choice Awards, stars in a new Priceline ad with Star Trek’s William Shatner. She will also be appearing in a Toyota commercial that will air during the Super Bowl.
The Priceline ad, posted on Wednesday, reveals that Cuoco is the Priceline Negotiator’s secret daughter. Both actors loved working together, with Shatner calling her “A wonderfully talented and beautiful actress!”
“I feel the same way about you,” Cuoco replied.

“The nerdy factor, the Trekkie stuff, it goes with Big Bang and it all worked together,” she told The AP.
The spot will make its TV debut on Jan. 14. Cuoco and Shatner will star in two more ads that will be filmed during the summer.
Cuoco is also slated to appear in Toyota’s Super Bowl ad, the company announced this week. It is her first appearance in a Super Bowl ad.
“When I saw the concept for the commercial, I knew it was something I wanted to do,” the actress said in a statement. “I've had a great time filming and am excited to see the finished product."
This year’s Super Bowl airs on CBS on Feb. 3.
