James Joseph Parsons, better known as Jim Parsons (Houston, Texas, 24 of March of 1973) is an American actor of television, theater and film.

He was recognized with multiple awards thanks to his peculiar way of acting, including the Television Critics Association, the National Association of Broadcasters, four Emmy Awards and also a Golden Globe Award for best comedy actor in television series.

His best known role is that of Sheldon Cooper, a theoretical physicist, one of the main characters of the television series "The Big Bang Theory" directed by Chuck Lorre, a great success in the United States. For this role, he won the Emmy Award for Best Leading Actor in Comedy in 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014 and the Golden Globe, also as the best leading actor of comedy in 2011.

Jim Parsons was born at St. Joseph Hospital in Houston, Texas on March 24, 1973, and grew up in one of his northern suburbs, Spring. He is the son of Milton Joseph Parsons, Jr. (February 6, 1949 - April 29, 2001) and teacher Judy Ann McKnight. He has a sister, named Julie Ann Parsons, who is also a teacher. He attended Klein Oak High School, and after several school theater performances, Parsons was determined to become an actor.

After graduating from high school, Parsons received a bachelor's 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 - a non-profit theater company that was closed in July 2007 due to financial problems after 14 years and a long list of awards - and appeared regularly at the Stages Repertory Theater. Parsons enrolled in graduate school at the University of San Diegoin 1999. He was one of the seven students who received a scholarship in a two-year special master's course in classical theater, taught in association with The Old Globe Theater. Parsons graduated in 2001 and moved to New York to pursue his acting career. 

Parsons traces the history of his family in the TV show "Who Do You Think You Are?" in September 2013 and discovered the French heritage by his father. One of his ancestors was the French architect Louis-François Trouard (1729-1804). 

He lives between Gramercy Park and Los Angeles. In an interview for the New York Times in May 2012, he made public his homosexuality, as well as being stable partner with Todd Spiewak since 2002.

In his beginnings he only had offers of shows of low budget of Broadway and different commercial announcements. After a while he got a small role in the "Ed" series, and in the dramatic comedy Garden State (2004). Parsons has estimated that he auditioned for between 15 and 30 television pilots, but on many occasions when he was chosen, the program could not find a television network willing to buy it. The exception came with "The Big Bang Theory" in 2007. After reading the pilot script, Parsons felt that the role of Sheldon Cooper would be a very good option for him. Although he did not feel any kind of relationship with the character, he was delighted with the structure of dialogue, the way in which writers "brilliantly use those words that most of us do not recognize to create that rhythm. Through that dialogue, and in many ways it still is."

In his audition, Parsons so impressed the creator of the series Chuck Lorre that he insisted on a second audition to see if Parsons could replicate the performance. Parsons was chosen as Sheldon Cooper, a physicist with social apathy who often disparages his friends and the waitress who lives across the aisle. The paper requires Parsons to "recite line after line of rhythmic and well-composed dialogue, and then do something with your face or body during the silence that follows." Parsons credits his training at the University of San Diego with giving him the tools to break Sheldon's lines.

In 2009, he won his first Emmy nomination in the category of Best Actor in a Comedy Series. On 7 February, 2010, he participated in an advertising spot for Stand Up To Cancer, an organization dedicated to fighting the disease. This one was called "It's Up To You". In June of 2010, he received a nomination for the Teen Choice Awards 2010, in the Choice TV category actor in comedy. On August 29, 2010, at the 62nd Emmy Awards, Parsons won the award for best comedy starring actor. On 16 January, 2011, he won a Golden Globe for best comedy actor. On September 18, 2011, at the 63rd Emmy Awards, Parsons won the award for best comedy starring actor. In 2012, he headed the cast of the Broadway production "Harvey" and he appeared as the character Mary Chase to which was previously given life by James Stewart. On September 22, 2013, at the 65th Emmy Awards, and after having lost in 2012 at the hands of Jon Cryer, Parsons returns to win the award as best actor in the comedy, obtaining his third statuette. On August 25, 2014, at the 66th Prime time Emmy Awards, he received his fourth consecutive statuette as best actor in a series of comedy for his character Sheldon Cooper in the series "The Big Bang Theory". On March 12, 2015, he was awarded a star (number 2,545) on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (Los Angeles) for his role as Sheldon Cooper in The Big Bang Theory, and from that same month, his wax figure is on display at the Madame Tussauds Museum in Orlando.

I’m SURE you haven’t already heard this but.... WE HAVE AN ELECTION TOMORROW!!! (at least those of us in the USA do) and if you’re over the age of 18 you can VOTE! and you SHOULD! you’ll feel really great about it, I swear! (and remember: “not voting” is still “voting” - you’re just essentially doubling the impact of the vote of someone who disagrees with you!) VOTE! 🇺🇸👍

If your over the age of 18, go vote, but please educate yourselves first. Don’t vote the way these dumbass celebrities tell you to vote. Half of them are paid to say the crap they say and don’t live like you or I do. Be yourself. Think for yourself. And vote they way you want to.

@space_force_6 you don’t think that’s a pretty reductive read of what I said? My point was about separating politics from performer...

This morning I did a scene with a crow that was older than @normancook - seriously, the crow (named “Baby”) was 36 years old and was already flying in movies when i was in undergrad, still dreaming of becoming a professional actor. This afternoon I worked the youngster herself, @normancook , who was ALSO working in film and tv while I was in undergrad. Anyway, we had some downtime on the set and she took these. Thank you, Kaley ❤️👶🦅(that’s as close to a crow as I can find on my phone).
