Jim Parsons a.k.a. Dr. Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory is my favorite sitcom character on television. His quirky comments and nerdy style makes me laugh so hard I think I disturb my neighbours 😛
Jim is an American actor born March 24, 1973 in Houston, Texas.
Parsons was cast as Sheldon Cooper, a physicist with social apathy who frequently belittles his friends and the waitress who lives across the hall. The role requires Parsons to rattle off line after line of tightly composed, rhythmic dialogue, then do something with his face or body during the silence that follows. His co-star Amy Farrah Fowler (Mayim Bialik) plays Sheldon’s girlfriend and when the two of them get together it’s nothing but fast talking brutal honesty that is both hilarious and creative.
Sheldon is famous for his knocking style on Penny’s door; knock, knock, knock, “Penny, knock, knock, knock, Penny, knock, knock, knock, Penny” and his obsessive compulsiveness drives him to do this each time he appears at her door. He is also known for saying “Bazinga”, drawing up room-mate agreements with Leonard (Johnny Galecki) he’s a very picky eater and quizzes anyone who picks up take out for him and he makes a whopping $1,000,000 per episode.
In real life, Jim is married to art director Todd Spiewak, and was in gay relationship with him for over 10 years before tying the knot. Here are Jim’s thoughts on being married; “it’s an act of love, coffee in the morning, going to work, washing the clothes, taking the dogs [out]—a regular life, boring love.”
Jim is best friends with Kaley Cuoco (Penny) and they are both big tennis fans. Me too!
