12 Sep 2012
Stage and screen actor Jim Parsons, who recently starred in the Broadway revival of Harvey, will be among the presenters at the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards, which will air live Sept. 23 from the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles.
Parsons, who is Emmy-nominated for his work on "The Big Bang Theory," will join Louis C.K., Amy Poehler, Ricky Gervais, Ginnifer Goodwin and Mindy Kaling as presenters at the awards ceremony, which will be broadcast at 8 PM ET on ABC.
Theatre-related nominees for the 2012 awards include choreographer Joshua Bergasse for "Smash," songwriters Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman for "Smash," London stage star Benedict Cumberbatch for the miniseries "Sherlock," Uma Thurman for Guest Actress in a Drama Series for "Smash" and the 65th Annual Tony Awards for Special Class Programs, among others.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
