Jim Parsons Introduces 'Young Sheldon' Star Iain Armitage to the Press!

Jim Parsons is joined on stage by his younger counterpart Iain Armitage at the Young Sheldon panel during the 2017 TCA Summer Press Tour on Tuesday (August 1) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Iain is playing the younger version of Jim‘s character on The Big Bang Theory on the upcoming CBS comedy series.

“We have a lot more in common now than I would have had at the same age. I wasn’t mature enough at 9,” Jim said about Iain. “I was not an overly bright child. I was mediocre. I didn’t befuddle my parents. That came much later, with my sexuality. Iain is much more in control as a human being than I was.”

“I’m not sure that’s true,” Iain added, according to USA Today.

Also in attendance was Zoe Perry, who is playing the younger version of Sheldon’s mom Mary, a character played by her real-life mom Laurie Metcalf on The Big Bang Theory.
