A "Big" Star at Pace (NYC)

News Story

The Pace University 2014-2015 academic year goes out with a Big Bang...Theory visit. Guess who's stopping by Pace as an Inside the Actors Studio guest on June 1?

"A) I rarely kid and B) when I do kid, you will know it by the use of my word 'Bazinga!'" BAZINGA! Except not at all. That's right, folks. Dr. Sheldon Cooper Jim Parsons will be James Lipton's next seminar guest on Inside the Actors Studio on Monday, June 1 at 7:00 p.m. in the Schimmel Theatre on the NYC Campus.

Parsons is a critically-acclaimed actor best known for playing Sheldon Cooper on the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory. He has received several awards for his performance, including four Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Television Series, Musical, or Comedy. In 2011, Parsons made his Broadway debut portraying Tommy Boatwright in the play The Normal Heart, for which he received a Drama Desk Award nomination. He reprised the role in the film adaptation of the play, and received his seventh Emmy nomination, this time in the category of Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie. Parsons will be returning to Broadway as God in the new play An Act of God, opening May 28.

He may play a genius on TV and God on Broadway, but will Parsons be able to handle Lipton's trademark index-card questions? Only one way to find out...
