 After playing the role of the Kola-Kola bird in a school production of The Elephant’s Child at age six, Parsons was determined to become an actor.

 He attended Klein Oak High School in Spring. Parsons points to a role in Noises Off during his junior year as the first time “I fully connected with the role I was playing and started to truly understand what it meant to be honest on stage.” The young Parsons was heavily influenced by sitcoms, particularly Three’s CompanyFamily Ties, and The Cosby Show.

After graduating from high school, Parsons earned a B.A. degree in Theater from the University of Houston. He was prolific during this time, appearing in 17 plays in 3 years. He was a founding member of Infernal Bridegroom Productions and regularly appeared at the Stages Repertory Theatre. Parsons enrolled in graduate school at the University of San Diego in 1999.

He was one of seven students accepted into a special two-year course in classical theater, taught in partnership with the Old Globe Theater. Program director Rick Seer recalled having reservations about admitting Parsons, saying, “Jim is a very specific personality. He’s thoroughly original, which is one reason he’s been so successful.

Career

Parsons made his Broadway debut in 2011 portraying Tommy Boatwright in the play The Normal Heart, for which he shared a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Ensemble Performance.

He reprised the role in the film adaptation of the play, and he received his seventh Emmy nomination, this time in the category of Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Movie.

Similarly, Parsons starred as party host Michael in the 50th anniversary Broadway production of The Boys in the Band, which won the 2019 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play, reprising his performance (with the whole Broadway anniversary cast) in the 2020 film adaptation. In film, Parsons has voiced the lead character in Home (2015) and played supporting roles in Hidden Figures (2016) and Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019).

Parsons has estimated that he auditioned for between 15 and 30 television pilots, but on many of the occasions when he was cast, the show failed to find a television network willing to purchase it.

 The exception came with The Big Bang Theory. After reading the pilot script, Parsons felt that the role of Sheldon Cooper would be a very good fit for him.

Although he did not feel any sort of relationship with the character, he was enchanted by the dialogue structure, the way the writers “brilliantly use those words that most of us don’t recognize to create that rhythm, and the rhythm got me. It was the chance to dance through that dialogue and in a lot of ways still is.”
