Jim Parsons


In the three seasons that The Big Bang Theory has steadily risen in popularity to become one of television’s most-watched sitcoms, there are few who would argue that a key reason for the increasingly enthusiastic viewership has been breakout star Jim Parsons. As the all-too-logical, defiantly antisocial über-nerd Sheldon Cooper, Parsons has taken writer Chuck Lorre’s lovably infuriating creation and turned him into one of the medium’s most hilarious characters. Earning an Emmy nomination and a TCA award for Outstanding Achievement in Comedy for his pitch-perfect performance, Parsons has been described by Lorre as “a force of nature. He really is that good.” Parsons will be on hand to talk about the series.

  • You have said before that you think Sheldon exhibits many of the signs of Asperger's Syndrome.  Does this influence in the way you act out the character?  Have you researched it to learn more about people with it?

  • Huge Fan.  I have little time for TV.  Big Bang gets it all. 

    Was it hard to learn the language of physics and sound authoritative?

    Have you learned any real physics from working on the show?

  • As you play the piano, I would like to know what you think about the relation between music and natural sciences or mathematics. Just consider e. g. the works of J. S. Bach.

  • I'm a huge fan of Jim from The Netherlands and here's my question for him:


    Do you really possess the DNA of Leonard Nimoy? ;)

    Do you think the show should concentrate more on friendship than on the romance bit?

    They haven't explored the friendship of Sheldon/Raj lately. What's your opinion on that? Do you think their frienship should be explored again?
