The Hidden Figures actor felt weird working beside James Earl Jones
Just like every other hit sitcom, The Big Bang Theory also brought some high-profile celebrities on their show from time to time. James Earl Jones appeared as one of the guest appearances on the show in the 7th season of the series. However, Jim Parsons felt quite weird acting with such a legendary actor. He once shared his experience of working with James Earl Jones in an interview, saying,
“I knew of him from his long legacy of the highest art of acting…this inspirational orb of valiant actors that are floating out there, where you’re like, ‘One day I hope I get to be an orb-like that’ So there was something unsettling about the fact that he was there on our set in a weird way to me!“
