Sheldon Cooper, the nerdy genius, his love for superheroes and comics
Who can forget the nerdy scientist and his crazy friends from the popular sitcom The Big Bang Theory? Jim Parsons who portrays the role of Sheldon Cooper in this comedy lives with his roommate, Leonard. Sheldon is famous for being the unemotional, logical, and science genius among his group of friends. But what these groups of friends further share in common is their passion and love for superheroes, comic books, and superhero collectibles. You can imagine how crazy they are just by the fact that in one of the episodes all four of them dress up as their favorite characters and drive to the Comic-con festival which is being held in some other part of the country. In another episode, Sheldon and Leonard had almost broken their friendship on the pretext of Sheldon breaking an invaluable collectible which belonged to Leonard.
Jim Parsons is not a fan of comic books, superheroes, and sucks at mathematics
After playing the role for almost 12 years, fans were curious to know whether Jim Parsons is also a fan of collectables and DC and Marvel in real life. In an interview with Margaret Gardiner, while talking about his movie ‘The Boys in a Band’, Jim cutely denied this. Well, in reality, he says that he is not a fan of superheroes and shopping altogether. Headphones are his guilty pleasure adding that he owns innumerable of those. Can anyone imagine what would be the identity of Sheldon if all his interests in these characters would be taken away? Well, if this isn’t enough to spiral off your head, in an interview with Jimmy Kemmel, Jim said that in his earlier days of college and in his 20s, he was slobby and not particularly a neat freak. He has gradually inherited these qualities after playing Sheldon Cooper on ‘The Big Bang Theory’.
