News   See What Jim Parsons Told Jimmy Fallon About His Godly Role on Broadway
 
Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory"," Harvey) made a guest appearance on NBC's "The Jimmy Fallon Show" where he opened up about his return to Broadway as the title character in David Javerbaum's An Act of God. 

"The premise is that God has some things he'd like to say to people and he thinks a good way to do that is Broadway, he's got a showman type personality," said Parsons. "But if he was just God, you wouldn't be able to hear him or see him, he has to pluck a human body to interpret him. It's a very freeing premise."

"I get to say all this stuff about religion and God but it's not me!," laughed the star. "It's just my body."

A clip of the interview appears below.

During the interview, Fallon took a moment to congratulate Parsons for his performance in The Normal Heart, the Tony-winning 2011 drama revival in which Parsons co-starred. "Gosh you were fantastic," the host commented. Parsons responded by saying it was "one of the most gratifying experiences. It was such a wonderful play, such a wonderful group of people and a very powerful time in my acting life."

Two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello (Take Me Out, Wicked) will direct An Act of God, a stage adaptation of the satirical publication "The Last Testament: A Memoir By God." Performances are scheduled to begin May 5 at Studio 54, with an opening night scheduled for May 28.  To purchase tickets, visit the Studio 54 box office,Telecharge.com or call (212) 239-6200.
