Sheldon Cooper might have wanted to celebrate an Emmy nomination with a Settlers of Catan tournament or a pilgrimage to the comic book shop, but actor Jim Parsons had a much simpler plan Thursday to enjoy his fourth nomination for lead actor in a comedy series for "The Big Bang Theory."
He said he plans to perform in "Harvey," the play he's starring in on Broadway. "I’ll also celebrate with my new favorite drink, a green juice I’m addicted to at a juice bar near me," he said. "I know it sounds lame, but that’s what I’m doing."
Parsons has twice won an Emmy for playing Cooper, the uber-nerdy physicist in the hit CBS sitcom, but he said that even going on six years of playing the character, there are still things that remain a challenge.
"The hardest part of playing Sheldon is memorizing the damn thing," he said. "I’m so grateful we shoot on Tuesday nights. I have all of Saturday and Sunday to cocoon up in my house and recite scientific terms over and over again until they somehow just fall out of my mouth."
