Currently working on his Jim Parsons is Too Stupid for Politics radio show, the actor is also planning another very exciting project. As you’ve probably already heard, Sheldon Cooper will get his very own spin-off show!!
The Big Bang Theory actor will produce the upcoming series and recently shared his enthusiasm about it with Entertainment Tonight:
“The writers have done, from the beginning, such a good job of building such a history and a layered nature to all these characters. It just seems like a really wasted opportunity if you don’t decide to explore the origin story with that.
I mean, they’ve layered so many things in there over the past decade that is already there to be drawn from. I’m really excited about it. I think it will be very different than Big Bang, but in a good way.”
The spin-off will focus on Sheldon’s early years, growing up in a colourful Texan family. There’s no word on who would star as the kid version of The Big Bang Theory‘s sarcastic nerd but Jim Parsons already has tips for the lucky guy: “I would advise that actor to watch me as little as possible, and take that thing by the horns, and make it your own.”
