Career: Jim Parsons only made his Television debut in 2002 with a small part in the show ‘Ed’ his film debut would come as a surprise to many in a French film ‘Happy End’. in 2004 Jim had a small role in Zach Braff’s ‘Garden State’ as Fast Food Knight Tim. In 2005 Jim continued with small roles in films with ‘Heights’. Jim followed this up with a recurring role in Judging Amy. Jim has in 2006 two more small roles in films ‘School of Scoundrels’ and ’10 Items of Less’, this very same year Jim got his most recognisable role as Sheldon Cooper in ‘The Big Bang Theory’ and with this his career is ready to sky rocket.

Break Out Role: Sheldon Cooper – The Big Bang Theory.

Career: In 2007 Jim tried his luck in film again with more supporting roles in ‘On the Road with Judas’ and ‘Gardener of Eden’ but neither made it big, Jim did continue to conquer the small screen though with Big Bang Theory continuing to grow.

The Muppets
The Big Year

2010 Onwards: In 2011 Jim went back to try film again and this time he was a bigger name, Jim had the only secret cameo in ‘The Muppets’ film in the Man or Muppet song. He also appears in the slammed comedy ‘The Big Year’ along with Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson. Jim did reteam with Zach Braff for ‘Wish I Was Here’ and even has taken steps into horror with ‘Visions’ this year 2015 Jim will lend his voice to animated film ‘Home’ alongside Rhianna which looks like a very odd ball comedy.
