Jim Parsons giving away tickets for Houston 'Hidden Figures' screening

Houston native Jim Parsons has followed the lead set by his "Hidden Figures" co-star Octavia Spencer and purchased all the seats for a Sunday screening of their new film to give away to Houston moviegoers.

"Inspired by Octavia Spencer's buy out of a theater in Los Angeles last week for low income families, the rest of the cast and crew have followed suit," Ted Melfi, the film's director, said via email. "Jim parsons has bought out the showing in Houston, Taraji P. Henson has covered showings in South Side Chicago and D.C., Janelle Monoe has bought one in Atlanta, Pharell Williams has purchased two in Virginia, and Co-Producer Kimberly Quinn and myself covered two in Missouri. All showings are free on a first come, first serve basis."

"Working with Jim Parson's you realize why is he one the greatest actors of his generation," Melfi said. His work ethic, attention to detail, and insane creative talent was an inspiration to myself and to everyone he worked with on this film."
