Jim Parsons Stands Up 2 Cancer and It's Great

jim_parsons_the_big_bang_theoryAs Dr. Sheldon Cooper on 'The Big Bang Theory,' Jim Parsons is a big bang of funny week in and week out. Oh, yes, he's not working alone. He has a wonderful group of actors around him and they're also very funny characters. But the breakout star on that show from the very start has been Jim.

But is it the character or the actor? Hmm ... if only there was a way to see Jim doing something else. Well, ta-da, here it is. Watch this public service announcement created by the folks at Stand Up to Cancer. If you had any doubt that Jim Parsons is a comic wizard, this will dispel them.

Oh, before you watch, notice that all the wild and crazy characters are Jim. The man on the guitar, singing "Up2 You + Me" is Zach Selwyn.



The joy of the spot is reminiscent of young Pee-Wee Herman, especially the way he was on 'Pee-Wee's Playhouse.' You know, that would be great casting. Pee-Wee as Sheldon's father. Hmm ... that would be something. Although it's hard to imagine Pee-Wee involved with Laurie Metcalf like it's hard to imagine Sheldon romantically involved with any being in the known universe.

"Pee-Wee as Sheldon's father. Hmm ... that would be something."

During the first season, Sheldon's twin sister showed up to get him to sign some papers dealing with their father's estate. So if you want to cast Reuben as Sheldon's dad, you'll need to retcon his return from the dead.

Anyone who saw him as Amy's replacement secretary on Judging Amy already knew he was a comic genius.

Jim reminds me of Rowan Atkinson, Mr Bean in particular.

Don't forget he was also 'The Knight' in Garden State.
