Image:-The Big Blonde Theroy! Sirius XM Jim Parsons
The 47-year-old Emmy winning actor showed off his major hair change while recording the upcoming Virtual Town Hall by SiriusXM with his Hollywood costars from Netflix: David Corenswet, Darren Criss, Laura Harrier, Patti LuPone, Joe Mantello, Dylan McDermott, Jake Picking, Jeremy Pope and Holland Taylor.
In a clip from the special - set to air on Monday 11 May at 7:00 pm ET on Stars channel (102) of the satellite radio network - Parsons told host Jess Cagle why he decided to try a new look.
"Quarantine causes changes," Parsons joked.
He went on to explain that he was looking to do something for husband and film producer Todd Spiewak, whom he we d in 2017, to entertain.
"I wanted to shake things up for the husband, who only has one companion. Now he's got sort of one-and-a-half companions," Parsons teased. "You know, a little new thing to jazz it up."
Parsons plays a fictionalized version of real-life talent agent Henry Wilson in Hollywood, the man in charge of making actors like Lana Turner and Rock Hudson into stars.
The foul-mouthed, sleazy role is departure from the wholesome character of Parson's Big Bang Theroy. The seven-episode limited series specifically explores how Wilson preyed on his male clients, coerced them into sexual situations, and often blackmailed them if they refused.
For the part, Parsons is also undergoing a physical transformation, wearing a wig with thinning hair, brown contacts and false teeth.
"It ended up being an important part of my process," he said of the hair and makeup look of New York Magazine. "I felt, in a wonderful way, not fully myself. That was very helpful, especially with some of the nastier things that I had to do. I felt a nice lack of responsibility. I knew that it wasn't me." Ultimately, Parsons thanks Ryan Murphy - who produced the show along with Ian Brennan and Janet Mock - for giving him the opportunity to try something different with his career.
"He said, 'I’d like to ask you to do something. I promise it’s a character unlike any you’ve played before.' And he was right," Parsons noted. "Working with Ryan, he's really good about building a sturdy sandbox to try things in, never mind the fact that he has an uncanny ability to match actors to material and roles that most other people, including the actors themselves, would not have seen." "I didn't have any hesitation," Parsons said.
