* ButIPlayOneOnTV: Jim often gets asked if he is really as smart as Sheldon, or if he understands all the things Sheldon says. He's mentioned that he had tremendous difficulty memorizing Sheldon's rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock speech.
* IAmNotSpock: Makes it clear in his SNL monologue song that he's not like Sheldon at all.

* UsefulNotes/AmericanAccents: Jim has a Texas drawl and sometimes it shows when he plays Sheldon. [[ActorSharedBackground Then again, considering that Sheldon was born and raised in Texas...]]



* StraightGay: Parsons is gay, though given that this never enters into his career, most wouldn't know it.

Born March 24, 1973 in UsefulNotes/{{Houston}}, Texas, '''James Joseph Parsons''' began his acting career on the stage of the University of Houston, where he was a founding member of a theater troupe known as Infernal Bridegroom Productions. By the time he had earned his master's degree in Fine Arts at the University of San Diego, his list of theater credits was staggering -- ''Endgame'', ''What Happened Was'', ''Theatre/GuysAndDolls'', and ''The Balcony'' are only a few he appeared in. Parsons toiled for a few years after moving to Hollywood, getting small parts in commercials (Fed Ex, Quiznos, Stride gum, etc.), TV shows (''Series/JudgingAmy'', ''Ed'') movies (''GardenState'', ''School For Scoundrels''), and three axed TV pilots for the Creator/{{FOX}} network.

* Doesn't really consider himself a nerd. Theater geek, however, yes. He made his Broadway debut in April 2011 as self-proclaimed "{{Southern|Gentleman}} [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch bitch]]" Tommy Boatwright in ''Theatre/TheNormalHeart'' (and repeated his performance in the 2014 {{Creator/HBO}} film version).
