Jim Parsons Hired Mayim Bialik to Star in 'Call Me Kat' Because She's 'Annoying'

Doctors Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler are together again!

Jim Parsons
and Mayim Bialik had a virtual reunion on Ellen on Thursday (January 14).

The former Big Bang Theory co-stars appeared on the talk show to promote their new sitcom Call Me Kat, which Mayim stars in and is produced by Jim‘s production company.

During their interview, Mayim shared the story on how Jim approached her to star in the show.

“Jim came to me and he said ‘I want to know what you think about this project that my company has.’ It’s this Miranda show, it was really popular on the BBC,” Mayim shared.

‘So I went home, I did a little research, and I came back the next day and I said ‘Well, Jim, that seems like a really awesome project. Good luck, you’ve got my vote of confidence!’” Mayim continued. “And he said, ‘No, I’m asking because I want you to be in it!’ I was shocked because I think I’m very annoying, but however annoying I am, he obviously still wanted to work with me.”

Jim then jumped in and said, “I think that the annoying quality you bring is what America responds to, Mayim. I think that’s what this character wanted.”

Ellen jokingly added, “That’s very relatable. Everyone – we know some annoying, so that’s perfect.”

During a recent interview, Jim revealed that he auditioned for this comedy series before landing a role in Big Bang Theory.
