  9. From Deadline Hollywood ‘Hollywood’s Jim Parsons On Portraying Sexual Predator In Life-Changing Project & The Need To Investigate All Kinds Of Human Behavior When Jim Parsons was approached for Netflix miniseries Hollywood, he jumped at the chance to play a complicated, real-life figure, unlike any he’d played before, whose experiences force us to reflect on the entertainment industry as it is today—and the extent to which it has or has not changed over the last 70+ years. Created by Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan, the drama follows a group of ambitious actors and filmmakers in Post-World War II Tinseltown, considering what might have happened, had inequality in entertainment been addressed decades ago. In the series, Parsons plays Henry Wilson, the talent agent who launched the careers of stars like Rock Hudson. Vicious, vulnerable, calculating and unpredictable, Wilson is a victim of his times, who ends up becoming a villain. A closeted homosexual tormented by the bigotry with which he’s faced, he resorts to the life of a sexual predator, before attempting to make amends for his misdeeds. From the perspective of the nine-time Emmy nominee, the character and the project in general were gifts that he never could have seen coming. “Without being too dramatic about it,” he says, “I felt at the time, and I still feel now that [they] changed me in some way.” Below, the actor reflects on his approach to playing Henry, navigating uncomfortable sex scenes, the need to closely examine all kinds of human behavior, and Hollywood, as he sees it..... <Q & A in the link>
  10. This topic is for discussion of the limited series "Hollywood", which is currently airing on Netflix. Jim portrays agent Henry Wilson and is an executive producer on the project.

  11. From an interview Jim did with Deadline Hollywood dated 8/30/2020 DEADLINE: What’s next for you? As you mentioned, there’s The Boys in the Band, directed by your Hollywood co-star Joe Mantello… <snip> "I’m not involved as an actor on this, but as a producer, we’re working on the show Call Me Kat with Mayim Bialik over at Fox, and we have a table read for that tomorrow. I don’t know, schedule-wise, what [the coronavirus pandemic] means, but these things are going on."
  12. From The Hollywood Reporter 'Young Sheldon' Sets Rich Syndication Deal With ViacomCBS The Big Bang Theory continues to pay off for Warner Bros. TV. In a rich deal, the indie studio has inked a syndication deal with ViacomCBS for Big Bang spinoff prequel Young Sheldon. Under the multiple-year deal, the 1990s-set single-camera comedy from Chuck Lorre will join ViacomCBS-owned Nick at Nite's syndication lineup in November. The lucrative deal, financial terms of which were not immediately available, will see the first three seasons of the comedy about the younger version of Jim Parsons' Sheldon Cooper join Nick at Nite's evening block that also includes repeats of Friends, George Lopez and the Lorre-backed Mom. Season four, which is expected to air on CBS sometime in the fall (pending pandemic-related production delays), will join Nick at Nite in 2021. <full article in the link>

  15. From The Wrap (Emmy Hot List Issue) How ‘Hollywood’ Star Jim Parsons Tried to Find the Heart of a ‘Despicable Character’ TheWrap Emmy magazine: “The job as an actor is to see the most seemingly despicable characters as the humans they are,” says the actor who played talent agent Henry Willson in Ryan Murphy’s miniseries. When Jim Parsons was first offered the role of talent agent Henry Willson in Ryan Murphy’s limited series “Hollywood,” he was in what he figured would be a slow, contemplative stretch in his career. “I kind of had been preparing myself for the vast desert of ‘What’s next?’ that I knew was going to come after ‘The Big Bang Theory’ ended,” he said. “And I kind of looked forward to wandering around and figuring out more precisely, ‘What do you want?'” But during the shooting of the upcoming, Murphy-produced and Joe Mantello-directed Netflix adaptation of the Broadway play “The Boys in the Band,” Murphy derailed Parsons’ plans for some time off by pitching him on “Hollywood.” The miniseries, which was nominated for a dozen Emmys, blends real movie-business figures from the 1940s with fictional characters to tell an alternative history in which Golden Age studios make huge strides toward tolerance and inclusion. <full article in the link>
