Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons swaps Sheldon Cooper for Hollywood

The Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons traded in geeky graphic tees for a very professional suit in his new role with Ryan Murphy’s upcoming Netflix show, Hollywood.

The 46-year-old Emmy Award winner was spotted on set wearing a full pinstriped suit, complete with a patterned tie and slicked back hair.

In a later scene, he walked out on set wearing a funky sweater vest, retro shirt and high-waisted trousers.

Jim is portraying Hollywood talent agent Henry Willson – a man who played a large role in developing the beefcake craze of the 1950s.

He was known for his young and downright handsome clients, including Rock Hudson, Tab Hunter and Chad Everett.


As well as Dylan McDermott, the 46-year-old will be starring alongside a string of A-listers including the likes of Samara Weaving, Maude Apatow, Joe Mantello, Laura Harrier and Jake Picking.

Jake plays the hunky Rock Hudson and we’re already dying to see it.

And if that wasn’t enough to get you excited, Darren Criss, Jeremy Pope and David Corenswet are also featuring as well as executive producing the show.

While not much is known about the highly-anticipated hit, Murphy did once describe his project as a ‘love letter to the Golden Age of Tinseltown.’

David Corenswet previously told The Hollywood Reporter: ‘It’s 1940s Hollywood, so there’s going to be great clothes and great accents. It’s going to be sexy and optimistic.

‘It’s really about young people and the excitement of young people seeking opportunity.’

We’re sold.

The first season will be set in the 1940s and is expected to take the streaming platform by storm in May 2020.
