Emmys 2012: ‘Big Bang Theory’s’ Jim Parsons celebrates with juice

1 Comment

Sheldon Cooper might have wanted to celebrate an Emmy nomination with a Settlers of Catan tournament or a pilgrimage to the comic book shop, but actor Jim Parsonshad a much simpler plan Thursday to enjoy his fourth nomination for lead actor in a comedy series for “The Big Bang Theory.”

He said he plans to perform in “Harvey,” the play he’s starring in on Broadway. “I’ll also celebrate with my new favorite drink, a green juice I’m addicted to at a juice bar near me,” he said. “I know it sounds lame, but that’s what I’m doing.”

Parsons has twice won an Emmy for playing Cooper, the uber-nerdy physicist in the hit CBS sitcom, but he said that even going on six years of playing the character, there are still things that remain a challenge.

“The hardest part of playing Sheldon is memorizing the damn thing,” he said. “I’m so grateful we shoot on Tuesday nights. I have all of Saturday and Sunday to cocoon up in my house and recite scientific terms over and over again until they somehow just fall out of my mouth.”

Though costar Mayim Bialik received her first nomination for playing Sheldon’s girlfriend, the rest of the cast was shut out, including Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco.

“I would have preferred to have the whole cast of ‘Big Bang’ nominated,” Parsons said. “But I realize that’s the same thing as a mother saying her child is pretty.”

Luckily, there’s no apparent bad blood between Galecki and Parsons. Not even any friendly rivalry.

“We’re a very peaceful workplace,” Parsons said.
