Emmy Award winner Jim Parsons, who made his Broadway debut last season in the Tony-winning The Normal Heart, is currently in discussions to star in a spring 2012 Broadway revival of Harvey, according to The New York Times.
Parsons, who stars on TV's "The Big Bang Theory," would play the role of Elwood P. Dowd in Mary Chase's Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy for Roundabout Theatre Company. Roundabout declined to comment to The Times.
Chase's durable, amiable comedy follows the story of a man who befriends a 6-foot-3-inch rabbit that only he can see.
Harvey originally played on Broadway at the 48th Street Theatre, opening Nov. 1, 1944. The production — helmed by Tony Awards namesake Antoinette Perry — played 1,775 performances before closing Jan. 15, 1949. The play won the Pulitzer Prize and was adapted for the screen as a 1950 vehicle for James Stewart.
