Behind the Scenes: Jim Parsons Poses for Adweek’s Cover [Video]

Right now, most TV actors wish they were Jim Parsons, and for good reason.

He just won his fourth Emmy Award for best comedic actor for his role as Sheldon on CBS's The Big Bang Theory. But America's favorite nerd isn't just witty punch lines and jokes, as we saw with his dramatic performance in the HBO's The Normal Heart.

Amid this whirlwind of success, Parsons took time to pose for Adweek's cover this week. We asked him how he felt when he read the first script for The Big Bang Theory—and what types of ads and commercials resonate with him.
