Ryan Murphy on Directing Jim Parsons In ‘The Normal Heart’

11 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Jim Parsons’ work in the 2011 revival of Larry Kramer’s “The Normal Heart” on Broadway was so strong that Kramer himself insisted Parsons reprise the role in Ryan Murphy’s 2014 HBO film. Murphy spoke to Variety’s Geoff Berkshire about working with Parsons on the project that earned both of them Emmy nominations:

“I had owned the film rights since 2009 to ‘The Normal Heart.’ Then the play came out, which was sort of a happy accident — it was supposed to be a reading that then became a stage production. I went to see the play when I was working on early pre-production. I was so moved and blown away by Jim. I was very struck by him. I had never seen him on stage, or in anything other than his television work.

“I wrote Larry Kramer an email saying, ‘I really want to cast Jim as Tommy.’ And he wrote back saying, »

‘Big Bang Theory’ Star Jim Parsons on His Road to the Hollywood Walk of Fame

11 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When Jim Parsons first strolled the Hollywood Walk of Fame as a teenage tourist from Houston, he didn’t have the sort of epiphany Sheldon Cooper lives for.

“I already enjoyed acting,” Parsons says on a break from shooting “The Big Bang Theory.” But “there was not some sort of sense of ‘maybe one day.’ It did not even enter my mind.”

Parsons is delighted, in his own quiet way, to become a name on Hollywood Boulevard. “I like how all-encompassing it is,” Parsons says. “It could be radio announcers you have never seen before or very, very visible and famous actors.”

The busy thesp is preparing for his third run on Broadway in the spring, but his star is in the TV category for playing the socially maladroit, brilliant physicist Cooper on the mega-hit CBS comedy. During its eight seasons, Parsons has continued to expand the role, though he »

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best TV Movie

11 March 2015 8:26 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Splitting the TV movie/miniseries trophies last year hasn't done much to improve competition on the movie side of things. Just once, it would be nice to get excited for the Best TV Movie category. Every year — including last year's "The Normal Heart" as well as every year before 2011 — it seems like one or two movies stand out from the pack while everything else is only nominated to fill the gaps. It's become the one consistently noncompetitive race in the field, and 2015 looks to be no different.  "Bessie," the Bessie Smith biopic starring Queen Latifah, will get prime placement from HBO, the undisputed network king of awards. Michael Kenneth Williams, aka Omar from "The Wire," co-stars and will hopefully compete well in the acting categories as he's been long overlooked for his commanding turns. Latifah and director Dee Rees will also help the campaign, assuring "Bessie's" front-runner status in the field. »
