Selena Gomez’s “Wizards of Waverly Place” days are coming to an end. So, what does the young actress and singer want to do next? Something other than comedy.

Gomez told TVGuide.com that she’d like to move away from comedic roles and into “different genres,” and “anything that would challenge [her] as an actress.” In the same interview she also said she’d “love” to have a stint on the CBS show “The Big Bang Theory.” Of course, that’s a comedy, too. So… yeah.

Do “Wizards of Waverly Place” fans watch “The Big Bang Theory”? Do they even compare? They are both comedies, but they are not the same by any stretch of the imagination. Here is a clip from each show, for comparison. First a clip from “Wizards of Waverly Place.” Selena Gomez makes her appearance toward the end of the clip:

 

 

Now, a clip from “The Big Bang Theory”:

 

 

Okay, so they do have some similarities. Apparent laugh track, characters who are caricatures… Hmm… well, perhaps Selena Gomez could do one similar comedy show before she moves on to challenging herself. Do you think “The Big Bang Theory” will give her the opportunity?
