Jim Parsons continues to skillfully navigate the entertainment industry as an award-winning actor and producer.

He stars in the upcoming film “Spoiler Alert: The Hero Dies,” based on Michael Ausiello’s acclaimed memoir of the same title, and produced by Parsons’ That’s Wonderful Productions. The film premieres this December.

Parsons recently voiced writer Truman Capote in “Truman & Tennessee,” alongside Zachary Quinto. In 2020, he starred in the streaming film “The Boys in the Band,” alongside Quinto, Andrew Rannells and Matt Bomer. The adaptation reunited acclaimed director Joe Mantello with the all-star cast of the Tony Award-winning Broadway production. Also in 2020, Parsons starred in the streaming series “Hollywood,” for which he received Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for his performance as Henry Willson. Created by Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan, the series is about the golden age of Hollywood.

Through That's Wonderful Productions, Parsons executive-produced the award-winning short-form streaming series “Special,” based on Ryan O’Connell’s memoir, “I'm Special: And Other Lies We Tell Ourselves.” The series was nominated for four 2019 Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Short Form Comedy or Drama Series, and a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comedy Series, as well as winning a Writers Guild Award for Original Short Form New Media. That’s Wonderful Productions produced the four-part streaming docuseries “Equal,” which chronicled landmark events and the forgotten heroes of the LGBTQ+ Movement. Partnering with Ryan O’Connell once more, That’s Wonderful Productions will produce “Accessible,” a half-hour “traumedy,” written by O’Connell, that follows a 15-year-old girl who’s recently been in an accident and must attend a boarding school for people with all kinds of disabilities.

Parsons is in development on “Beth & Sam,” a half hour single-camera comedy from Emily Wilson and Betsy Thomas that Parsons will executive-produce, along with Todd Spiewak for That’s Wonderful Productions and Jamie Tarses’ FanFare Productions.

Parsons co-starred in and produced, along with That’s Wonderful Productions, “A Kid Like Jake,” a family drama, in which a couple navigates the competitive world of NYC kindergarten admissions, while trying to understand what is best for their son. The film, which stars Parsons, opposite Claire Danes and Octavia Spencer, made its world premiere at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.

Also in film, Parsons starred in “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, And Vile,” opposite Zac Efron, John Malkovich, Lily Collins and Jeffrey Donovan. The film chronicles the life of the infamous serial killer Ted Bundy, focusing on how a routine traffic stop eventually led to the revelation of Bundy’s horrific crimes. Prior to that, he starred in the critically acclaimed feature film drama “Hidden Figures,” as “Paul Stafford,” alongside Kevin Costner and Taraji P. Henson. The film, which earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture, follows a team of African-American women who provide NASA with important mathematical data needed to launch the program's first successful space missions. The film won the National Board of Review Award for Best Ensemble, as well as the NAACP Award for Outstanding Motion Picture.

Parsons' breakout role was that of “Sheldon Cooper” on the smash hit series “The Big Bang Theory.” The show was the #1 comedy in America and in many parts of the world. “The Big Bang Theory” also made history as the longest-running multi-camera sitcom ever with 279 shows. Parsons’ performance garnered him numerous awards, including Emmys, Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards.

He then turned that character into a successful spin-off and serves as executive producer and narrator on “Young Sheldon,” a prequel to “The Big Bang Theory.” With Parsons voicing adult “Sheldon,” the story is told through the eyes of “Sheldon Cooper” at the age of nine, and follows him as he enters high school in east Texas. In 2021, “Young Sheldon” was picked up for a three-season renewal, which will take it to seven seasons.
