NEW YORK – With a new film and a Broadway revival, Jim Parsons is having the best time – and a troublesome one.
As Parsons’ big-screen parental drama “A Kid Like Jake” opens so does the all-star, Ryan Murphy-produced “The Boys in the Band,” arriving for a limited 50th anniversary presentation of the landmark gay drama.
It’s not completely triumphant since Parsons, 45, suffered a serious ankle and leg injury during a “Band” curtain call.
“A Kid Like Jake,” like “Boys in the Band,” looks at societal reactions to gender differences.
“One of the biggest reasons I wanted to do this,” Parsons said, “Was Daniel Pearle, who wrote the play and adapted it for this film.”
With 11 seasons of “The Big Bang Theory” and a million-dollar paycheck for each episode, Parsons is in an enviable position.
