Jim Parsons Explains Why He Bleached His Hair Blonde Amid Pandemic

Jim Parsons went blonde, and now he’s explaining why!

The Big Bang Theory actor, who is in Netflix‘s current buzzed-about series Hollywood, made an appearance on SiriusXM’s Jess Cagle for a Virtual Town Hall.

During the chat, he discussed his new look.

“Quarantine causes changes and I wanted to shake things up for the husband, who only has one companion,” he said of his husband Todd Spiewak, who he married three years ago.

“Now he’s got sort of one-and-a-half companions. You know, a little new thing to jazz it up.”

Jim Parsons Breaks Down The Iconic Seven Veils Dance from Netflix's 'Hollywood'

One of the most iconic scenes from Netflix’s Hollywood series is Jim Parsons performing the Dance of the Seven Veils from Salome.

The 47-year-old actor opened up to Entertainment Weekly about the scene and how petrified he was of performing it.

“My first instinct upon reading that [in the script] was, ‘Oh God, no’,” Jim, who stars as agent Henry Wilson, shared. “I don’t know if it was 10 minutes or 10 days, but it took me a little hump to get over it — to go from ‘Oh God, no’ to ‘What a gift!’”

He added that while at first he was skeptical he could pull it off, he “wasn’t afraid of looking stupid because I didn’t really have much choice. I’m a man doing the Dance of the Seven Veils for Christ’s sake, [and] I wanted to make sure it had meaning for Henry.”

“There’s a person inside him dying to be an artist, that wishes he could have been a performer, and he connects to that,” Jim says.

Jim also added that there was a concern was the physical toll: “At one point, I threw my head back, and I was like, ‘Oh Jesus, I’m in my mid-40s and I’m not a gymnast. I can’t just be throwing myself around like this.’”

Hollywood is streaming on Netflix now.

Leslie Jordan has landed a new role!

The 64-year-old Emmy-winner and Will & Grace alum has joined the cast of the upcoming Fox comedy Call Me Kat, produced by Big Bang Theory stars Mayim Bialik and Jim Parsons.

Leslie is set to play Phil, according to THR, one of Kat’s employees who is responsible for baking all of the cat café’s pastries. Kat is helping him get his mojo back after a recent breakup with his longtime partner.

Call Me Kat, a remake of the BBC comedy Miranda, got a straight-to-series order at Fox in March, but production on the project has been pushed to summer because of the coronavirus pandemic. The cast includes Cheyenne Jackson as Kat’s high school crush Max, and Kyla Pratt as Randi.
