Tonight on The Big Bang Theory
, “The Codpiece Topology” will follow a jealous Leonard when he sees with a new guy, who seems to have a thing for Leslia. Seeing that she’s moving on with her life, he opts to date someone else as well.
Meanwhile, Jim Parsons recently spoke to Star Telegram, revealing his thoughts on his character on The Big Bang Theory
. In fact, the on-screen nerd admits that while he isn’t a geek in real life, he does have some similarities with Sheldon.
“I was 10 and [the science of weather] just completely captivated me. I wanted to be an actor from a very early age, but meteorology was a two- or three-year blip on my radar,” Parsons admitted. When it comes to Sheldon, though, he says that he can relate to the character in some ways.
“I can compare myself to him in lots of little ways. Like, yes, I can be a little obsessive-compulsive about things like Sheldon. And yes, I can be set in my ways like Sheldon,” he says. He also notes that the writers have been very hard working when it comes to cooking up new ideas for the characters.
“One of the wonderful things when you do a show like this...is that you grow together,” Parsons revealed. “The writers are paying attention and they’re always thinking, ‘What comes naturally to him? What turn of phrase does he deliver really well?’ So they start writing the character to fit me and, in the end, many of my traits become Sheldon’s traits.”
Catch Jim Parsons and the gang on CBS’ The Big Bang Theory
