“Flabbergasted,” is how Jim Parsons summed up his reaction to his 2009 Emmy nomination for Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series.
Our theory: Parsons clearly has yet to actually watch THE BIG BANG THEORY. How else to explain his “God No!” response when this TV Addict casually suggested he might wish to consider jotting down a few thank-you’s.
“It’s hard to accept that I’m actually going to go to the Emmys, let alone nominated,” explained Parsons in a recent one-on-one with the TV Addict. “It’s something I’ve watched on TV for so long and now to be attending… I know that I have to wear a tux and that’s really about as far as my brain has gone!”
Something else the actor has trouble wrapping his head around is what can fans expect when everybody’s favorite theoretical physicist returns this Monday September 21 at 9:30PM on CBS (‘A’ Channel in Canada)
“They don’t tell me anything,” he admits. “But I think any changes Sheldon will go through will be very slow.”
In other-words, fans hoping for a Penny/Sheldon meeting of the err… minds, might have to wait a while. A very long while.
“The obvious thing that I would love to see at some point is some sort of relationship, even a friendship that calls some emotion to the forefront.” says Parsons. “I don’t think it will happen this year.”
Lucky for Parsons, we’re pretty okay with seven or eight more seasons of THE BIG BANG THEORY.
