Next, he went to the New York University and there, he attended the Tisch School of the Arts as he prepared to be an actor. One more interesting thing about him is that he has a black belt in Karate. This should normally make one believe that he would be better acting action movies, but he is doing great where he is.
As an actor, Simon Helberg has done rather very well for himself since he began in 1999 when he took part in the movie,
Mumford. His next work in 2002 was Van Wilder. He has gone on to appear in many other movies with the recent ones as We’ll Never Have Paris (2014), Hollywood Adventures (2015), and Florence Foster Jenkins (2016) for which he was nominated for the Golden Globe Awards.

The name of Helberg’s wife is Jocelyn Towne, an American actress, producer, and director. The two dated for five years before finally deciding to crown it all up as man and wife and begin a family on 15th Jul 2007.
Even as they have built a relationship that many others would only dream of, the two are said to have had their rough times as while they were dating, they broke up before finally coming back together.

This may not be as much as the $1 million that Johnny Galecki (Leonard Hofstadter), Kaley Cuoco (Penny Hofstadter), and Jim Parsons (Sheldon Cooper) are paid, but it is still something very significant. In fact, it is worth more than what many other actors get paid per episode in Television.
